Best footwear purchase I've made! I was looking for a shoe to mimic barefoot training to enhance mind-muscle connection and have better contact with the ground. These do exactly that. I've even worn them for outdoor road running and they were perfect for that as well. My calves were sore after the first few times wearing them but I've noticed a tremendous improvement in my balance and stability in my training since these enable me to really use my feet as a foundation. My foot measures a 7.5 but I wear a 9 in training/running shoes. Bought these in a 9 and they were just right. Enough room for when my foot splays but not too big that I was tripping over them.

A little too soft. No arch support. Tread is awesome!

These fit really nice, but the lugs are way more aggressive than useful for most trails. Suited for mud, soft dirt, or loose gravel.

This is my boyfriend's go to shoe so I bought it in another color. He has wide feet and this shoe is offered in W, and also has plenty of room in the toe box for when he feet slightly swell from exercising. Finding a good fit is a challenge and combined with inov-8 quality, it was an easy decision to get a second pair for him.

This is my first pair of Inov-8's after trying many shoes to fit my everyday workouts! I can't say enough about these shoes. After the first Beachbody workout, I knew I wanted to order them in other color (just waiting on my size to come in.) The shoe fits like a sock and is surprisingly supportive. Zappos, you have once again, made my feet happy!

Best functional fitness shoe I've used in a decade. Version 2 of Inov-8 f-lite 235 seems to have hit the sweet spot between minimalist and sufficient protection/stability for a wide range of movements, from olympic lifting to shuttle sprints. The design of the first version of 235 just looked silly, like clown shoes or bowling shoes. These have a more traditional design and look great. I hope Inov-8 never changes this version. But of course they will. That is the way of things. In the meantime, stock up. These are great shoes. Slightly wider in the toe box than standard, but for me that is a good thing. I've noted a spot for possible early fraying on the upper, on the outside of each shoe right where the shoe creases with bent toes. I'll keep an eye on it and update if necessary.

I love these shoes!!! These shoes are light but very comfortable and stable with lateral movements (such as cardio workouts from p90x3 or T25). Also provide a good base when weight lifting. In keeping with other reviews, they did run a little small on me. They are replacing Reebok trainers, in which I wore an 11US (in two different models). I also have a pair of Inov-8 250 Teraclaw's that I wear in an 11. However, the 11 of this shoe felt a little snug and a little short. The 11.5s fit just right. Would highly recommend. There is (currently) an error on the Zappos website. It lists these shoes as "precision fit". Before buying I researched the Inov-8 website and they were only offered in "standard fit". I purchased assuming the Zappos site was incorrect. Upon arrival they are clearly marked as "standard fit" on the tongue.

These replaced an older pair of inov-8's that I had consistently used when competing in mud runs and obstacle races. These are great quality shoes, they drain fast when wet, comfortable with some cushion, and slim in profile. I have narrow feet so the precision fit was perfect for me. They provide great traction when climbing walls and soles easily release mud. Overall great shoes! I would have a hard time using any other shoe when it comes to OCRs.

Nice shoe. WAAAAAAAAYYYYYYY too small. Not sure why we are having such difficulty with sizing irregularities with Inov-8.

Great shoes! Third pair of ions-8's and they continue to impress. Great for short runs, crossfit, and day to day wear. Would recommend to anyone who like a 0 drop and a minimal feel.

I got these for my husband for XFit. Flat shoe that runs true to size. They are not the best for running, but great for cross training.

Bought these before going on a trip to San Francisco in the early spring. It was too early to live in my Naot sandals (too chilly there). I wanted something in plain black so I could mix and match with different scarves, shirts, etc., and still go down to the hotel exercise room for a work out in. Needed to decrease suitcase space and keep up with my girls. These worked great. I have sensitive feet (with bunions), and they were fine to wear right out of the box. I walked for miles and worked out all week. They still look like new. Bought my usual 8.5, and they fit great.

these might be sliiiiightly narrower than marked. i wear size 9 women's shoe. very truly minimal; they don't provide any arch support which is perfect while lifting. they've held up quite well during my powerlifting workouts. i would absolutely recommend these to barefoot lifters. not a whole lot of toe splay but that's ok for me. i always feel solidly in control of my feet and workouts in these.

I wanted to like these shoes. I really did. However, they just don't fit. I ordered the US Mens size 9, which is advertised as a wide shoe. I have a size 9 foot. On a Bannock device, my foot measures M width. However, I have a high crown, which necessitates a wider shoe. These did not do it. Inov-8 shows a Men's 9.5 size on their website, but Zappos does not carry it. Customer service informed me the manufacturer has not been shipping them in the 9.5. Inov-8 shows them out of stock on their website. it's disappointing that I cannot purchase what I want and need.

I really wanted this light hiker to be my go-to. It fit all my criteria on paper. Light weight, minimal (ish), flexible. Something easy to work the clutch and go for hikes. Too short, too narrow. Gotta return it.

I really wanted to have these shoes work but the new version is wider and unfortunately I need to return them. The original F-Lite 235 model fit me perfectly. Interestingly, the new version also runs larger than the original

I love these shoes. I have wide feet and have never been able to find comfortable athletic shoes. These are light, and my toes have room! The shoes are quite flat and have hard soles. Don't know how comfy they'd be for an extended run, but they've been great for weightlifting.

This is my second pair of Inov8 shoes and I will continue to purchase. They do run a little funky in sizing but I have small feet so I can't complain. These are excellent shoes for at-home workouts like beachbody programs where you want something very, very lightweight.

I'm giving these guys a two because after 5 weeks of wear the fabric at the back of the heel has already rubbed thin to the point of tear, and now it's balling up and giving me blistersZ for $130 I expect shoes to last months, if not years. Certainly not weeks! I am bitterly disappointed about these. I loved them when they first came, really cool looking and super comfortable. But they product is just very poor quality.

LOVE this cross training shoe! I wear these for at home workouts like P90X, T25, and Core de Force. I usually wear the Asics Gel Kayano in wide width for running. If you have a wider toe box or bunions than these are the cross trainers for you, so comfortable! I literally tried at least ten other pairs of cross trainers until I found these. They're great for spinning or quick side to side movements. I like them so much that I bought an extra pair as backup for when my first pair wear out!
