These are perhaps the best fitting and most functional shoes I've ever owned (and they're not bad looking). I experience plantar fascia occasionally; these shoes allow for an orthotic and they are light with very little drop. I bought an extra pair just so I'll have them when the manufacturer changes something.

I love them for crossfit. Great flat foot good for squatting, light weight. Wider toe bed than the normal "precision" but not as wide as other shoes, like the nanos.

The inov-8 X-Talon 190 is poorly constructed. When I received them they looked as if they would only last a couple races at best and the fit was odd. The cost of these shoes and the quality do not align - they are built like budget OCR shoes. I was disappointed after have a good experience with inov-8 Mudclaw 300s. I returned them and will look for a better option.

I've purchased Inov8's before and the size this time runs smaller than before. Previously purchased 10.5 US mens I am returning them for an 11. Until I can actually wear them a more detailed review will have to wait.

Very light-weight, construction appears of high quality. Shoe is very narrow at the start of the laces towards the toes. I wore my thinnest socks and still felt considerable pressure over the top of my foot even with the laces completely untied.

Love these shoes. I'm an avid runner and I've tried several brands and loads of support systems, but these shoes, which are actually made for weightlifting, seem to be just what my body needs. There's extra room in the toe box, which I love. I do feel that I have to stay with my real shoe size instead of going up like most athletic brands suggest. I've trained for two half marathons and ran one in my first pair of inov 8's and they have held up very well and still wear them on my light run days without any problems.

I love these shoes for cross training and jogging. I don't like a bulky or heavy shoe so these are perfect. I always buy inov-8's.

These shoes are great! I've used them for a couple weeks now and I love them. Very light weight and very durable. I ordered the same size as I usually use (9.5), they were a little snug but after one session they feel great.

I hesitated to try these shoes because I have narrow feet and was convinced they wouldn't fit. Zappos generous return policy made me think, what the hell, I'll try them anyway. While the toe box is very wide and roomy, the mid-foot can be tied tight enough that my foot doesn't slip inside the shoes and the heel fits well - no heel slipping. Nice firm insole great for lifting, and a non-slip bottom that doesn't slide on my cement garage floors. Basically, these are perfect for use in my home gym. I ordered these and the Asics Gel-Fortius, figuring the Asics would fit better because they're my go-to athletic shoes. Surprisingly, the Inov-8s fit better and I ended up keeping them instead!

These are the most comfortable hiking shoe I've ever used. I do have to size up with INOV8 shoes.Ever pair I've bought run small.Normally a US 13, I get a UK 13 and they're perfect.

I lift weights and run a ton of hill sprints. I found this shoe to be perfect for both. Great for O style lifts. Great for sprinting, almost like a track shoe.I found it to be quite comfortable for my workouts, sprinting, lifting and plyometrics. I'm not going to give it 5 stars because nothing is perfect but this shoe has done me right!

Have only had these shoes for a short time and already love them more than most of their predecessors! Lightweight, supportive, comfortable, stylish. Only comment, and not a complaint - they DO run about a half size small compared to other more well know, on every shelf brands. I ordered the size I normally wear and from the size chart however had to return for a half size larger.

Good looking and very comfortable, light , fit well, can be worn for casual dress. I use them for softball. A little pricey but a good shoe in my opinion.

I have returned two pairs of these to get the right size and I have other Inov-8 shoes in women's size 10 that I workout in, I just ordered the 9 after the 9½ was still too big. All of the sizing except the cm sizing shows the same in the tags where there is a big variation. Having to wait twice has been annoying!

Shoes are super comfortable and so cute! I'm using them in my Kettle bells/TRX classes. This was a really good purchase.

This is my favourite shoe/boot for running in the snow. It's super light and keeps my feet dry. I was purchasing my second pair so I new what size I needed. The boot generally has a snug fit.

I'm on my 3rd pair in the last 3 years, while running a lot of technical single track in the Finger Lakes region of NY. The shoe handles the nastiest trail conditions and sticks well on steep, slippery trails. I have narrow, flat, over pronated feet, which are difficult to fit. This shoe fits and feels great - even over long miles!! I also appreciate the fast feel of the light weight. The light weight construction does impact durability, but I do get a season out of them, so no complaints.

This shoe is much sturdier than the F-Lite 185, and the sole does not unstick from the actual fabric of the shoe. I say this has "No Arch support", because, although it has a bump where an arch should be, it's not in the right place for me, so I don't feel like it's doing anything for me. It's a cute shoe that's definitely a half size too small from what you normally get (at the regular width). If you have wide feet, then they gave wide widths, too which is super nice! Overall a decent shoe for working out. I do light oly lifting, regular gym machine things (bike, rowing), and CrossFit classes with these shoes.

High quality product, Material is solid. Traction is excellent. The toe box is wide. I have the Brooks pure grit 3, which I really love and these inov-8's are on par. Did some sprints and they felt good! Have not done any trail runs yet but sure they will do great.

The shoe fit perfectly and was extremely comfortable. The toe box was a little snug for me and I had to go up 1/2 size just for that. Love inov-8s!

At least at the upper end, sizing is way off. I wear an 11.5 to 12 in every other shoe. Reviews indicating sized slightly small so I ordered a 12.5. Too small, returned and ordered a 13. They are still too small, and held up to 3 different kinds of shoes I own that are 12s, the size 13s are at least a half inch shorter than any of them.
