If there were a shoe company to embody the Spartan code- it would be inov-8.  That is why we chose them as the official shoe sponsor of Spartan races, and why they chose to sponsor us. Everything inov-8 does is designed to celebrate the grit and glory of the committed athlete. And inov-8 knows that real Spartan competitors are committed athletes. Rugged, determined, and aggressive: these are the Spartan of shoes!

inov-8 shoes handle even the most extreme, muddiest obstacles like a Spartan. The traction and flexible sole of the shoes help with climbing and gripping slippery surfaces. The secure fit and light weight design allow you to move quickly and feel assured that you won’t be leaving your shoe behind in a pile of mud.  The highly breathable mesh upper allow mud and water to drain, so you aren’t sloshing around in your shoes while running through the course. inov-8 has a line of over 25 trail shoes for different terrain and experience levels, with a whole new trail series releasing later this summer. inov-8 makes award winning trail shoes and you can bet you can win some Spartan awards wearing inov-8s.


Inov-8 is giving away a pair of Roclite 285s to a lucky winner who tells their friends they’re ready for the adventure by “liking” inov-8 on Facebook and by sharing this Spartan Race post on their own wall.
