Good lightweight gym shoe. Would have given this 5 stars if the sole wasn't already peeling away from the toe on the right shoe. Very comfortable and the muted colors are nice. Durability has to be in question because these are gym-only shoes and I have only had them a few weeks.

Inov-8 is onto something with this shoe but it needs refinement. The upper is mesh throughout and lacks structure; there was some puckering and folding in the upper even straight out of the box. The shoe runs slightly short and turns in toward the big toes too early; my pinky toe rubbed on the inside of the toebox. The biggest flaw is in the midsole construction. The "Fascia Band" design actually does the opposite of what it suggests. It flexes directly beneath the arch instead of at the ball of the foot. Ask a biomechanist or podiatrist to explain the risks with this -- primarily high risk of plantar fasciitis and foot injuries. There is also a void under the metatarsal area, seemingly concave. A little support here would add a lot to this shoe's comfort and function. Great form; not so great function.

I was looking at these for a long time before I finally decided to buy them. I have been buying wearing different Nike Free 5.0's for the last year or so I was skeptical about trying a new sneaker. I found that the Free sizing was off for me, the 9.5 were to small and the 10's were a bit to big, heel to toe, but felt well width wise. The inov-8's 262 fit perfectly! They are part of inov-8's natural line...which has a wider toe box, which was perfect for me. I ordered size 9.5 and they fit great maybe a 1/4 of an inch of space before workout. They are very light, breathable and have a surprising amount of cushion which you wouldn't guess by looking at them.
