I do crossfit 4 days a week. These shoes provide stability around my ankles, room at my toes, and support in my arches for running. Highly recommend.

I love these shoes! I have been a Merrell fan for awhile but started having heel problems which was affecting my workouts. I thought I would try something different and went with these shoes. They fit nice and snug to your feet (in a good way), look great, and I can really feel the cushioning in the heel and throughout foot but it is not like wearing regular sneakers. They are not as bulky or heavy. I was initially worried with this because I was so use to wearing such minimalist shoes. I am now an Innov-8 fan and am looking at purchasing another pair. I also CrossFit and these work great. They look great, too.

I love these shoes! I had previously been working out in the f-lite 230s, but definitely prefer these! They are minimal enough for Crossfit activities yet still feel supportive enough to run in. They seem to have a little more "oomph" to them which I felt like the 230s were lacking. They fit true to size and width. Definitely would buy another pair of these! Hoping the 215s are here to stay!

The best training shoes, yet very pretty. I don't know why people are saying go down a half size. They are true to size! F-lite 230 is the one that runs a half size bigger, not the 215! I listened to those and it was a mistake. Maybe I half size up if you want to wear with a thick pair of socks. They are amazingly comfortable and light. The color is vibrant in person. Although, I bought the pair when they were more expensive. Now they are less which is even better.

I love almost everything about this pair of sneakers! I love the design, the colors, the material and especially the feel of them. They are extremely light and comfortable. They are perfect for weight lifting and cross training, however, I do not really like them for long distance running because I personally need more cushioning (I need running shoes with a lot of stability and support because I have problems with both of my knees). I definitely give them five. Regardless. I just love them!

This is my first Inov purchase and I love these for my classes at Orangetheory. If you are looking for sneakers with tons of cushion, these are not them but if you are looking for the perfect shoe for burpees, then get them.

Brands I'd also recommend: ASICS.

I bought them for Cross Fit, they are very light and I feel like I run faster when I wear them. Overall, I like them and they do everything they say they are supposed to.

I've been wearing inov8 F-Lite 230s for the past couple of years for CrossFit. Looking worse for wear, I took the leap and ordered the 215s in black/pink/grey. What can I say about this shoe? I love them! They are not only cute, but I have found the fit so much better than the 230s. In terms of sizing/fit, here's my experience: 230s: US7 (Womens) - roomy in the toe and a slightly wider fit. Almost a half size too big (I take a US7 in almost all brands). 215s: US7 (Womens) - spot on sizing. Snug toe area without being too small and the perfect width so my little feet aren't swimming. In terms of arch support, these shoes will feel different if you've been wearing 'traditional' trainers. Going from 230s to 215s I've had no problems, only happy feet! Very happy with my purchase. Thank you all the way from little old New Zealand!

from chino hills ca

I purchased a pair of these shoes last year! I had been using them for gym activities only and was impressed with the lightness and stability, very solid. Buying this brand is outside the box for me, but glad I tried them! I am a 8.5 narrow and got these in a 9.5, they fit my narrow foot with just the right amount of room to spare. I did change the insole as I do with all my athletic shoes and the fit is now perfect. I tried them for Zumba and they are a wonderful shoe for that, the dance floor is wood and I am able to do the intricate moves without sticking to the floor. I now have, the black and pink, and splurged to get the all pink, very pretty! I just ordered another pair as they are on sale and my favorite "go to shoe."

Just wore these during a workout with runs and squat cleans and they felt awesome! They have a slight heel which is perfect for lifts and they are also very light weight. They are the perfect all around shoe for crossfit as well as everyday wear. I haven't tried them with rope climbs yet, will see if they hold up better than my last pair. These certainly rival the Reebok nano 2's that I also swear by!

I normally order a size larger in my athletic shoes, but I read the reviews and saw that some people thought they were larger than other shoes. I tried both a half size larger than normal and a full size larger. I stuck with the half size larger and returned the full size. I gave these shoes a three for style because they at very bright!

These are my first pair of CrossFit shoes. I've been doing CrossFit for about a year in running shoes and finally decided to try a pair of CrossFit shoes. After some research I ordered these as well as two others. As soon as I put these on I knew they were for me! They fit like an old leather glove that has been perfectly formed to my foot. They also perform well right out of the box. They only need longer laces but that is an easy fix.

Super light and perfect for lifting, etc., where cushioning isn't needed. I was looking for lateral support, and these are great for that. NOT perfect for anything involving impact.

I bought these shoes for Crossfit. I usually wear an 8 in regular shoes but I buy a 9 in sneakers so I bought a 9 in these. The fit was great. I do have a narrow foot, which these fit great compared to some of the other brands I have tried. They are super light weight but supportive. I end up wearing them all day because they are so comfortable. In addition, I get compliments every time I wear them.

Love these shoes! Great for functional training. I had no size issue. Same as my typical size. I was looking for a show that wouldn't get destroyed in my Bootcamp class and burpees and mountain climbers are no match for these! Love!

Love these shoes! I bought them for my cross fit workouts. Which they are great for weight lifting; great arch support, light weight, not bulky at all so there is no ankle pain. I was worried they wouldn't be supportive enough for running, but they have great support for our sprints and 400 meter runs. I'm even thinking of using them for my 3 mile runs because they are so light weight. Great shoes! And I love the pink and black color; gives it a feminine touch!

I am a huge fan of inov-8 shoes in the first place so these great pink/silver/black ones just add to my collection. This brand is a bit of a new find for me but I find them so comfortable that I wear them instead of my slippers at night! That is definitely all day comfort in my book. I do order them half a size larger than what I normally wear - 6½ versus 6 and they have been a perfect fit. I am not an athlete but I walk and I do not have to worry about my feet getting hot and swollen because of the breathable mesh. In the winter I wear heavier socks to keep my feet warm. Not so much now in the winter but in the spring/summer I would love inov-8 to make more choices of mostly white shoes with great color accents.

These are the most comfortable sneakers I've ever owned. Feel almost like slippers on your feet. Very cute and stylish. Bought for doing Crossfit /weight lifting and they have been excellent. Very light shoes but stable. I would not recommend for long distance running.
