This is my third pair of Inov8s. I tend to rotate between the three, depending on my workout of the day. Like my other two, they are comfortable, light and well made. However, the best thing about this particular pair is that it is suitable for every part of my workout. So whether it is running, deadlifts, squats, box jumps, wall balls, or whatever else, these shoes allow me to do it all. I prefer my bare XF when the workout calls for lots of double unders and my roc lite for box jumps and wall balls. But if I had to choose only one pair, these would be the one! And although I am all about function and practicality, let me not forget to mention that they are super cute, too!

I took a leap of faith on this sneaker because I didn't see any reviews so I wasn't sure what to expect. I did have the F-Lite 215 but exchanged them for these and I'm so glad I did! Not only is this sneaker lightweight, and comfortable but it's your perfect CrossFit companion! Weights, running, etc this shoe really stacks up! Thank you inov-8 and Zappos!

Very light. Great tactile feel for lifting. Rope tech nice for rope climbs. I do not run more than 400m and the shoe has been fine for this. Size - I have a narrow foot so this shoe is perfect do not believe it would be the best fit if you have a wide foot.

Love these shoes. Bought them for crossfit but wear them everywhere. Get lots of compliments too. They are light as air and really give me a barefoot feel. Highly recommend.

Love these! I teach a variety of group ex classes and these have worked for cardio as well as strength. Light but supportive.
