I have very flat feet and these give me the support I like while also allowing me to feel the ground with my foot. Great for Crossfit! Fit is like a sock!

I have no idea how you can describe this as a trail running shoe. Are you kidding? It's flatter than flat, it has no tread/grip. You should describe it just like the running flat that it is. This was my first bad call after numerous great experiences w/ Zappos. But the description of this model did not match the product.

I have been using this shoe for approx one month doing Crossfit. Very functional for all Crossfit movements. First experience with inov-8 shoes, and would definitely recommend to others. Also, Zappos customer service/delivery was great.

I have large flat feet. Most shoes make me cramp in the soles of my feet. These shoes fit like socks (I can barely feel them on my feet) no more foot cramps and better workouts. I highly recommend them.

I think what helped me decide on sizing was comparing to other brands/shoes. I wear these with athletic socks, not the standard tube sock or compression sock (thinner). I wear a size 9M in the Nike Free Run 5.0's, I wear a size 9M in Reebok Nano 2.0 and 3.0, I wear a size 8M in Chuck Taylor's and in the Inov-8 195 F-Lite I wear a size 8M/9.5W. These feel even roomier than my Nike Free Run 5.0's (pretty narrow feel/I could wear without socks.) I have a pretty wide foot and the toe box is definitely roomy! These are so light...it feels like you are only wearing a sock. I actually measured my foot for the most accurate result and looked at the brand name size charts. I love these shoes and they are great for CrossFit WODs, I can feel that 'Fascia Band' feature. My next purchase would be the one with RopeTec.

I bought these for a 5k obstacle course mud run and I couldn't of been happier. They were completely covered in mud when I finished. I rinsed them a little bit and scrub them clean at home and you would never know. They cleaned up perfect and are in excellent shape. They will last multiple runs. I didn't slip, they didn't hold water, and were comfortable. I bought a half size smaller than my normal shoe like suggested and they fit perfect. I would and will buy again and would highly recommend them.
