I'm concerned as to whether or not these are authentic inov-8 shoes. The box they came in has multiple spelling errors. That said, I ordered a size 8 (I'm usually a 7.5 in Asics). I decided to measure my foot first with the tool provided (print out and put it under my foot as my heel was against a wall). Glad I did that, the 8 is perfect! The shoe is VERY light weight, comfortable, and sleek! Love it!

I'd also recommend: Asics

I train in a boxing gym where a solid pair of cross training shoes is a must. I found these to have a perfect pitch, especially for weightlifting. I've found with other cross trainers that they have little to no arch support, and these support my feet rather well. Light and well made.

My first pair of Inov-8s were F-Lite 195's. I was worried these might fee a lot heavier, but they feel just as flexible and light! I wear these for crossfit, and I absolutely love them. I think they provide even better support for weightlifting than the 195's!

I ordered these as a replacement for my f-lite 215's. My pinkie toe has bore a hole through the mesh in them, so I ordered these as according to inov-8's website these have a wider toe box than the 215's. Out of the box I was super excited because these use a different mesh entirely on the upper than my old 215's that looked more durable. But disappointment set in once on my foot; these run a half size small and unfortunately that would put me in an 11.5, a size that doesn't exist! Had to return. If they ran true to size, likely a 5 star review.
