Dynamic Fascia Band™ (DFB): replicates the anatomical position of the plantar fascia ligament and duplicates the function of the human's foot ability to use the "windlass effect". The inov-8 fascia band™ also replicates the benefits of the windlass effect of the human plantar structure. Originating at the front of the heel's outsole the fascia band extends forward along the outsole and divides, just as the human fascia divides, into 5 bands that terminate anterior to the metatarsal heads. As body weight moves forward onto the metatarsal heads and the toes begin to extend, tension on the inov-8 fascia band™ increases. When the heel leaves the ground, the inov-8 fascia band™ resists elongation of the medial arch and carries the entire body weight of the runner converting the shoe into a rigid propulsion lever.

ExteroFlow is a TPU midsole that contains a plush foam inside of a firmer skin for a balance of cushioning and responsiveness

Dual-C™ Sticky Grip™: combines two different outsole rubbers for excellent grip and decreased wear.
