These are very comfortable shoes with room for orthodics They are not as flashy as they look and sort of go with everything if you need easy walking shoes for travels. I would not suggest hiking in them unless you are a lot younger than I am.

Comfortable out of the box. These are great shoes and have been used extensively. Because they only come in a medium width, I up-sized 1/2 size and that worked well, as it has in the past with other inov8s.

These are fantastic. They work really well for the Olympic lifting I'm doing. Run a little small and probably should have gotten a half size bigger. They're a little tight, but other than that they are great!

Love these shoes! So comfortable! Size true to fit. Instantly wore these on an 8 mile hike with no blisters or sore feet. Extremely happy with these! Tired of stiff, heavy hiking boots so have gone the trail runner route. These are lightweight with great traction. I also backpack and can't wait to hit the woods in these!

These are great light weight shoes for working out in the gym or on the stair master. I love the room my toes have to spread out without the shoe being too loose around the heel and ankle. However, it has taken some time for my body to get used the the 0° lift in the heel.

I love these shoes - comfortable for all day wear. They are very pretty, much nicer than any other running shoe I've seen. Not much arch support but that's something like in these, makes them more comfortable and easier on my very picky feet.

As promised, here is the review after having ordered the next size up. It's still too narrow. The length is great, the arch is great, but it's too narrow in the upper part of the foot. these shoes are very narrow! Unfortunately I am returning them. According to the ion-8 site, these are narrower than the x-Talon-200 may work as it is not as narrow in the forefoot

This is a nice looking sneaker. The colors look great and it looks good. However, true to its claim it is very much like being barefoot. It fits like a sock and feels great. However I do bootcamp workouts and we do jog in between training and I feel I would die if I run in these. No support at all. Returning...

This shoe has some support so would probably be able to handle light run/cardio in between strength training. However the two tone color (purple and yellow) looked weird. The fit was good. Returning...

I've been wearing ion-8 shoes for years. These shoes were narrower than expected and a touch short, even though they were marked as US Women's size 9.5 and I have narrow feet (fit in the heel was perfect, but narrow across the toe box). I've ordered the next half size up and will post what I think of those when they arrive. Overall I'd like to say that I've never found a better shoe for hiking than inov-8 trail shoes. They have aggressive lugs spaced far enough apart that rocks don't get stuck in them. They have low arch support; I find shoes with more arch support than inov-8 makes my toes goes numb on long hikes (8-10 miles).

This is my 2nd pair of Inov-8's and they are the best workout shoe I've owned. They are light, comfortable and soles are grippy. If you are looking for a shoe for cross training/P90x/T25 I would recommend these. I did have to go up 1/2 size on my last pair.

I just felt compelled to write this review because I found this shoe to be bigger than the waterproof Roclites. The previous reviewer thought they ran smaller. I wear a 8.5 in the 282 GTX and the 8.5 is way to big for me in these. I love, love the GTX version. My feet are swimming in these. I am an trail ultrarunner/marathoner.

These shoes are awesome, some of the best lifters I've ever had as it's my first pair! I took the advice ordering in a half size up and they fit perfect.

Finally. This is what I have been looking for for my fitness activity. I do Insanity and Body Pump and these work perfectly.The toe box is better for burpees and push-ups. The shoe is more stable for weightlifting compared the the running shoes that I wore before.

I've been using the inov-8 trailroc 245 for a few years now, and I cannot recommend them highly enough. Great fit, solid traction for most trails, good protection for the occasional rock or root. I've seen some reviewers have issues with how quickly the shoe falls apart, but I personally haven't found that. I have almost 400 miles on my current pair with little to now wear. If you are looking for a trail shoe and a more minimalist design (although not drastically so), I would recommend this shoe.

I run 40 plus miles a week in the trails and bought these for the snow and cold wet conditions. They are significantly lighter than the previous trail shoes I had used and kept me almost as dry. The weight difference is worth the switch for me and I will continue to use these. I have a wide foot and thought these were a bit narrower than I expected them to be. Overall they fit very well and I don't think about my feet when I run and they are lightweight and dry. Worth the cost.

I have had model Lite 195 in black and white before, but it was very different both in style, fit, comfort. I am very disappointed in Inov-8 having the same model number and colors, but a different shoe. I have now tried standard and precision style, neither fit!

This is my second inov shoe. I'm really impressed by their minimalistic approach towards sport shoes. This shoes are really good for running, brisk walking, or casual every day use.

I had read from the other reviews that this shoe runs a little small and so I ordered a half size larger than my normal size. I normally wear a womens 8.5 and ordered a size 9. The 9 fits me perfectly. I really like this shoe. It provides a very stable base to lift weights from. They are much more stable than running shoes. This is my first pair of weight lifting shoes and I wish I had gotten a pair a long time ago.

I have used these shoes several time after purchasing them. I would have to say thus far they are comfortable, light weight, and nice to have a wider toe box. They do a great job of being able to feel the ground but protect your feet while going over rocky sections of the trail. Thanks to inov8 for making the standard version since I can fit my custom orthodics in them.
