I was looking for a new shoe to replace my Nike Frees for running and inov-8 F-Lite 230's that I m using for CrossFit. The F-Lites are great for CF and shorter runs, but I like a shoe a little more substantial for longer running workouts and when I just go running. The Road Xs are the perfect amount of cushioning I was looking for: slightly more than the F-Lite 230's (noticeable under the mid and forefoot) but not too much. These feel very similar to my beloved Nike free 3.0s in terms of cushioning, but they're still firm enough to use for most CrossFit workouts. The fit is spot on. The heel and mid foot are snug, and there is just enough room in the toe box without feeling like your toes are completely lost. I would love more color choices in these models. Not that I hate the red/white, but colors similar to the F-Lites would be great! I would definitely recommend these shoes to people who haven't tried inov-8s yet as a stepping stone to the F-Lites. Great shoe! Thanks inov-8!

I love these shoes, they are incredibly comfortable but really light as well. I'm not used to such a a thin design, which is why I gave them 4 out of 5 stars for comfort.

Comfortable, lightweight, minimalist shoe. A bit wider than the 230 or 195, I use it for 5K racing.

Promised wouldn't go far. Ended doing 5.5 miles. Should have stopped. Can't wear new shoes without getting at least one blister. Other than that great shoe. Did a little jogging but mostly walking. Shoe is a little narrow, but my other pair, Bare-Grip 200 stretched after some use. I imagine this one will do the same. I just wish they made it in more colors.

I was looking for a lightweight shoe with low/no heel drop. The shoe is very stylish and very light/flexible. The mostly mesh upper is thin and stretchy. I really wanted to like to these. However, whatever last they build these on has a pronounced inward curve at the toe. I found that my pinkie and 4th toes were squished inward and there was a noticeable gap between my big toe and the inside edge of the shoe. I returned them obviously. If the toe box was straight and maybe just a bit wider, I'd have kept 'em.
