The X Talon 260 ultra is lighter than its predecessor with an improved forefoot shape (slightly less volume in the forefoot than the X Claw 275) to make it really fit really securely.
The outsole now has improved grip. Sticky grip – softer grippier rubber on the outside and harder, more durable rubber in the middle - for extra traction in wet and dry conditions. Deep 8mm lugs give claw like grip over soft and muddy terrain – fells, mountains, obstacle courses or boggy flat ground. The cleat pattern layout ensures no clogging occurs so you get the maximum benefit from the studs.
An 8mm drop Powerflow+ cushioned midsole gives extra shock absorption to guard against sore feet - Powerflow+ delivers 10% more shock absorption and 25% better energy return than standard EVA midsoles. Bonded overlays create a hard wearing upper with fewer seams to cause irritation. A rand around the upper and a toe bumper protect the feet from stones and other debris

HOW TO CHOOSE THE RIGHT SIZE FOR RUNNING SHOES
Your running shoe size will generally be 1 to 1.5 sizes bigger than your regular (‘dress’) shoe size. Bear in mind also that one foot can be slightly bigger than the other.
First, kick your foot back into the heel of each shoe before checking how much space is left at the front. When standing in each shoe with your full weight on the foot, it’s best to have between half and a full thumb's width between the end of the longest toe and the end of the shoe.
When standing in the shoe, it’s best to have a little wiggle room for the toes, but the back of heel should still feel nicely secure.
Sprint spikes are best when a close fit. Distance spikes best when up to a half a thumb's width between the end of the longest toe and the end of the shoe.
