First pair of INOV8s and I'm very pleased. I use them primarily for training and occasional casual wear. I wanted a minimalist trainer and this fit the bill. No complaints.

I was looking for a new pair of minimalist cross training shoes and these fit the bill perfectly. I do run in them as well as do Zumba and bootcamp. They are very comfortable and light weight. And the color (green blue) is adorable. I don't plan to run in inclement weather in these however, as I don't think they'd keep your feet very dry. Overall I am happy with them.

I like these very much. They are super comfortable. I run in them and have found them a perfect transition shoe on the way to barefoot running.

I bought these for a 5K mudderella coarse and absolutely loved the traction. I am a registered nurse as well who runs around for 12 hours straight everyday, on flat waxed tile, and I choose these shoes over any others everyday. I get compliments as well - but mine are red and black

I have worn the unisex 240 and then switched to the women's F-Lite 239. I was looking for another women's style shoe from innov8's, since they are normally great. Really disappointed with this style F-Lite 235. Boxy toe and runs a half size small.

Colors not as depicted. Shoe not very comfortable. Glad I ordered the Sketchers, also. This is the first time I have been able to try shoes since my foot surgery. The Sketchers felt wonderful!!

I have only ever worn athletic footwear while performing an athletic activity until I came across the Inov-8 F-Lite 240's. Now, I find myself putting them on for casual wear because of how incredibly alive they make my feet feel! The wide toe box probably plays a large part in their comfort because it allows toes proper anatomic space to function. I have also used them quite successfully for vigorous games of tennis even though they are not intended for that sport. Highly recommended. The shoes do though run about a half size small and I had to exchange my initial pair for that reason.

Runs small -- runs a full size small. I've been running in Inov-8 Roclite shoes for years. Until this purchase, I loved them. This shoe is a full size small. Be certain to be aware of that, and don't waste your time and money buying your normal size. Huge bummer.

I got these shoes for my husband and he loved them. My son is disabled and I got him a pair also. They are really great shoes. They run a little small so I would suggest getting a size bigger.

RUNS 1/2 SIZE SMALL!! The 235's are one of the coolest designs from an awesome company. The neon yellow and black version look sick with black crew socks, but save yourself the time and order up 1/2 size from your normal inov8 size. Thankfully, Zappos is the best and is paying the shipping both ways so I will have the right size tomorrow in the mail. Shoes are firm, but not hard on the sole. I would say you can get away with most workouts, other than distance running on pavement-- but to save your joints you should probably just avoid that in general. Hope this review helps, Cheers!

One star for durability! In less than five weeks, I had one hole in each shoe in the mesh. I have a very slight bunion on each foot, and where the bone only very slightly protrudes, I now have two holes. The holes appeared in less than four weeks and only got bigger and more unsightly. I bought them in late February and now it's early June. That was a complete waste of my money. I have now switched back to my favorite brand, Merrell. I have never had such an issue with Merrell shoes. Do not waste your money because they will not hold up.

So it took me 4 tries to get the right fitting inov-8 shoes but it seems to be worth the hassle. I first tried a two different "precision" last shoes in two different sizes. Then the 240 in one size and finally a second size and bingo! It was like a night and day difference from all previous running/tennis shoes ive worn (mostly Nike). They are light and flexible, but I don't feel like the support is lacking. I cant speak to durability yet, but ill take slight life reduction for something that just feels right. My only complaints would be that since the toe box is so large (by design), that it makes it very hard to wear socks without your feet sliding forward slightly. Wear without socks and my shoes become sulfur pits fairly fast. Ill probably add something in the insole with a little more grip than the provided insole.

Don't let the commentary fool you - the "standard" are not wide. If you truly have a wide foot, you'll need to go up a size. I did, however, like the lightweight nature of the shoe, although be aware that there's not much support. I travel a lot, so I make a sacrifice in terms of comfort to get a shoe that packs easily.

I've tried an assortment of shoes for OCR and trail running over the last 5 years. I tried these shoes in the Tri state Spartan sprint this past weekend (May 29th 2015) and I have to say I wish I would have tried them sooner. The self cleaning cleats are fantastic in the mud, in the soft, powdery soil and even on the rocks. They are lightweight, tough and actually stay tied.

These are very similar to the 230s, but if you've got a wide foot, these are a more comfortable fit. I don't like many of the colors Inov-8 offers. I didn't want black, would have rather had a basic grey, but without that option, I just go for the bright red or blue.

I use the 195s for Crossfit. I signed up for a spartan race & used these shoes. AWESOME...they hooked up on wet rocks, muddy wet wood, & down hill...great control....they allow you to own the trail! Thanks inov8 for ur dependability!

Love the shoes. Super light. Comfortable. Excellent traction over all kinds of terrain. I was especially impressed with how they performed over boulders and talus (as I'm a rock climber).

I've had F-Lite 230s in the past, so I knew this was going to be a good shoe. However... They run small. Probably a half-size or so; I was silly and wore them about before thinking "hmm, these seem...small". By small, I mean lengthwise; the width felt very similar to my old 230s. They do not offer much support, so I recommend adding some form of orthotic to really get the most out of them. I do NOT recommend wearing them for work if you're on your feet for long periods of time: I work in an ER and had substantial back pain and knee pain by the end of my shift. They are excellent for running, though! Pavement and trails.

Excellent product. I was always taking my inserts out of my shoes to make them more comfortable and roomy. Now that I have the 3mm thick insoles I am back at having an insert and being comfortable. I have them in both my Brooks Beast shoes and they fit perfect. True to size.

These are great for training that requires any sort of jumping or quick movements. Got these to do P90X3 and have been great for my workouts. Only thing I would recommend is maybe getting some better insoles, but I have flat feet so take that as you will. Went with the other reviews and ordered a bit bigger than normal and they fit perfectly.

I got this shoe to use as a lighweight hiking/backpacking shoe. I'd seen 1 or 2 reviews on this shoe prior and most said order a .5 size up. I did so and am happy I did. Normally a 11.5, ordered a 12. Got them in the mail and couldnt believe how light the box is. The shoes are so comfortable and lightweight I couldnt be happier. Extra room in the toe box is great and no time really needed to break them in. The mesh upper allows your feet to easily get wet but it does dry fast. I decided to purchase these shoes over comparable Salomon trail runners. I will definitely buy more from Inov8.
