British shoe company Invo-8 has launched a couple of new shoes featuring wonder-material, Graphene. The G-Series TerraUltra G-260 is geared for trail-running efforts, whereas the G-Series Mudclaw is designed for fell running.
Several journalists got the opportunity to try both pairs during a run that featured trails and fell running.
A fell is essentially a monster hill. Mountains in England are considered 1,000m or higher. The highest fell in the country is 978m high. Check out photos from the beautiful run with Inov-8.
For the second part of the run we used the new G-Series Mudclaw, a shoe designed for fell running.
