Update after cross fit workout: These shoes seem to work pretty well. I was able to jump rope and do burpees pretty easily because of the fact that these shoes are so light and minimal. Burpees get extremely tiring, especially with thicker shoes. The thicker the sole the higher you have to pop up to get your feet under you. So doing them barefoot you only have to clear your feet, and these shoes are the next best thing after being barefoot. I also felt like I did not have to jump very high to clear the jump rope, so I could do it pretty fast and low. Climbing rope, I am pretty new at this, but these shoes did do really well. I was able to squeeze the rope in between the bottom of one shoe and the top of the other and it held very tight. I also do the method of squeezing the arches of my feet together (with the rope in the middle) and they seemed to squeeze okay. But they work better with the first method. When you look at the pictures of the rubber material on top of the shoe it looks like it might be thin and weak, but seeing it in person, it looks thick and strong.

I bought these shoes in early February or late January. I slowly increased wear time over a few weeks. I then wore these shoes in the Open. I ended up with a stress fractures in the 2nd, 3rd and 4th metatarsal heads. This is exactly the spot of the "metaflex" on the sole. I do not recommend these shoes. I do not give them any stars.

I have tried many different shoes for Bootcamp over the last 2 years. This is the clear winner. I had ankle problems and was afraid to wear zero drop shoes so I eased into these slowly. No cushioning but much more stability lifting. Actually feel more agile and light footed. Get 'em, they're the Bomb! (Tried asics, NB and Nike Free)!

I'd also recommend: NB Minimus

Love, love, love! Having discovered the wonder of barefoot technology in realigning my body, I decided to give these a try. They are super comfortable, with stabilization but no "support." I wear them for the gym: some cardio, lifting weights, etc. Nice narrow fit on my size 11 N feet.

I am a woman and usually wear a size 9. I bought those in size 9.5 and it fits pretty well. They are very lightweight, but do not have any grip (the sole is kind of uniform). Otherwise, they are comfortable and not too rigid.

My previous HIT shoes were Saucony Hattori's, which are discontinued. A cross fit guy at the gym had a pair and loves them. I gave them a try. They run a 1/2 size smaller than most athletic shoes (I typically wear 12). I got the wrong size, Zappos was quick and threw in free 2 day shipping to keep my angst at a minimum. Love the shoes. Best shoe for squats and dead lifts. Great experience overall!

I truly can't say enough good things about these shoes. This is my first experience with inov 8 and if all the other shoes they produce are as good I will be purchasing many more of their products.
