The X-Talon 190 is a radically different shoe to its first-born sibling, the X-Talon 212. This shoe will redefine expectations for runners looking for the highest levels of proprioception and the most natural foot position. With a 3mm differential between the forefoot and heel and a 3mm footbed, the X-Talon 190 ensures that your foot remains close to the ground in its most stable position.
