Fell shoes.  They've rarely come any finer than the Inov-8 X-Talon 212.  So when it came time to revise/update the shoe, there was little that could be done to improve upon its grip and lightweight racing feel.

That said - they've reverted to a stiffer, firmer midsole this time around, which might delight fans of the shoe circa 2012 and the outsole has been altered, so it now features an even stickier rubber compound for what promises to be some pretty incredible traction on almost any surface.

Inov-8 say:

The original just got better. The new STICKY GRIP rubber outsole provides better traction than its predecessor, while improved underfoot protection ensures more comfort and stability. Discover a new level of confidence and the ability to run faster than you ever thought possible over all soft and extreme terrain. This update of a classic offers more comfort with the POWERFLOW+ midsole which delivers increased shock absorption and energy return when compared to standard midsoles. The precision fit men's X-TALON 230 is perfect for fell, mountain, trail and cross-country running as well as obstacle course racing. This shoe takes the inov-8 ALL TERRAIN GAITER, sold separately.
