Customer Reviews of Inov8 Parkclaw 240
I received the Parkclaw on 17th April and have done around 55k in them.
The shoes are nice and light, very comfortable and seem true to size with plenty of room in the toe box, which is good as I have fairly wide feet.
There did seem to be some rubbing at the front initially but this OK now they've bedded in. I bought the Parkclaw as I'm not a full blown fell runner and mainly run through woods and on tracks and paths near where I live and these are advertised as a "door to trail" shoe. The main observation I would make is there already seems to be some wearing of the tread, but again this may be initial bedding in so I'm keeping an eye on it. All in all I'm happy with the purchase but will be monitoring durability and performance against my previous running shoes as I've only had them around a week and a half.
