The Forge is inov-8’s first-ever brand store, opened in April 2021.
Located in the Lake District, where the brand was forged in 2003, the store is open 6 days a week (Thursday - Tuesday). It sells inov-8 branded run, hike and fitness kit for men and women.
It also stocks inov-8’s world-first Graphene-enhanced footwear. Graphene is the world’s strongest material and, following a collaboration with Graphene experts at The University of Manchester, inov-8 has been able to utilise it in the rubber outsoles and foam cushioning of its run, hike and fitness shoes, making them incredibly grippy, bouncy and durable.
The Forge is run in partnership with Pete Bland Sports, the iconic Kendal-based retailer, who were the first-ever to stock the brand’s shoes back in 2003.
Located in the Mill Yard, Staveley, LA8 9LR (between Hawkshead Brewery and More Bakery), The Forge will also soon become the start location for several expertly mapped run and hike routes of the local trails and fells, while hosting live speaker events and product taster sessions.
