Dear inov-8 F-Lite 215, where have you been all my life? Thank you for loving my feet the way only you can. Light as a feather and strong like bull. You wrapped my feet in snuggly comfort and made HIIT training blissful. Don't ever leave and don't ever change. Love, Rhandi-Jayne p.s. You're pretty darned good looking.

I tried Reebok Nano U-Form, Nano 2.0, Inov-8 230, 240 and New Balance WT20v1 before settled on this one. I bought the shoes for Crossfit workout, something that fits snug, stable and can handle rope climb. Both Reebok Nano models are very solid built shoes. They look like they can handle rope climb very well. However, the Nanos' and NB WT20v1's upper felt stiff compared to any of the Inov-8 I tried. And the Inov-8s are the narrowest among the three brands. I felt that the front of my feet move left/right too much in the Nanos and NB WT20v1. All the Inov-8s fit like a glove, hugging my feet. About the size, I found both Nanos size 6.5, NB WT20V1 size 6, Inov-8 230 size 6 and 215 size 6.5 are equivalent. The Inov-8 240 only comes in size 6.5 the smallest. And it fits larger than the 215's size 6.5. The 240 and 215 are pretty much the same shoes, only that 240 is unisex and 215 is built for women. The 215 is narrower throughout than 240. The 240 and 215 are much more solid-built shoes than 230. 230 doesn't seem like it can handle rope climb. If you Google, you will find that even Inov-8's representative admit that 230 is not built to handle rope climb. And last but not least, if you have small feet like me and are looking for size 5.5 or size 6 in 215, Inov-8 is releasing them in January 2013, along with an additional color.

Great sneakers for crossfit. Very light! I feel they run just a half size large. I am always an 8 in sneakers, but in these I needed a 7.5. Love them!

Just got these babies in the mail today and wore them to crossfit tonight. They were everything I was hoping for! I have been wearing my Asics running shoes and they just aren't the best for squatting and weightlifting. I've never had minimalist shoes and I think these are a great transition. Very minimal but just enough cushioning to protect your feet from the pavement when running. Very flexible and did I mention light!? Awesome shoes. They do seem to fit narrow, but I have fairly narrow, normal feet so they are great. Probably wouldn't be a good choice for someone with wide feet. Not necessarily the cutest shoes, but the pink helps out and the comfort of these shoes and their performance ability for what I do makes the looks easy to look past! Highly recommend!

I switched to the 215's after wearing the F-Lite 230's for years. It seems as though the 230's are being phased out? Anyway, I have not been able to detect a difference! Which is a good thing! I wear them primarily for crossfit and only run in them when it is part of a WOD, but even up to a mile they feel great. I have not worn them on longer runs, so I can't vouch for that. A great workout shoe.
