These shoes are fantastic - they are really comfortable and fit well. I ordered a half size up based on reviews, which was a good idea. I'll definitely buy another pair!

If you love the barefoot feel in a training shoe, then these shoes are for you! Very grippy on the bottom, so great for things like burpees, lateral movements and agility. I’m usually a Vibram Five Fingers girl, but I wanted to branch out and try something new. I’ll definitely be purchasing another pair when these break down!

The heel was larger and more pronounced than what I like. Also the shoes run narrow.

I was a little bit nervous that they would be too small because I tried a similar pair in a store and the ran big. But i ordered my usual size and they are fine. I tried them at the gym yesterday - my trainer recommended them - and they felt great, good grip and stability. I also got comments on how good they look. Very pleased and the Zappos price was by far the best.

Amazing shoe! Fits just like I remember. This shoe has been updated with better toe and side guards. Not sure about the graphene soles yet but they feel solid and lots of grip. The thing I always loved about this shoe is how light it feels. Truly remarkable for training, this is the true OG Crossfit shoe.

Pondered a long time about these. Went back and forth between these and the Nike Metcon 3 (then 4). It was all for nothing. Love them and wish I'd bought them sooner. Great training shoe, fits better and looks better than my old Metcon's.

Overall excellent shoes that have held up awesome over about a year of consistent use. The reason for 4 instead of 5 stars is because the soles are quite slippery on some surfaces. So when I'm really trying to dig in for grip they're prone to sliding rather than providing great traction. This also reduces confidence during things like jumps depending on the surface. This is really quite relegated to indoor gym use as most outdoor surfaces have a bit more natural grip. All that being said these are a great option if you want no heel drop shoes for working out.

Sole tore down quite quickly, had several other inov-8 shoes before, and these were clearly sub-par.

I couldn’t tell you how these fit because I have been sent the wrong sizes 5 times !! I used to have the older version, would love to try the new ones. Not sure why the correct sizes are online but when they are sent to me I get two sets with the wrong size

I have been wearing this shoe for the past year and can honestly say I love it. I love the wide toe box... I've tried on lots of Inov8s and love their design and the minimalist style but have been unable to wear many of their models because they're too narrow. The Parclaw is great on trails and stays comfortable through long runs. Nice and grippy on rock and dirt trails.

I put this shoe through lots of mud, water, and lots of rocks. It handled everything very well. The rock plate worked great when running on rocky terrain. It has good traction in slippery mud. It has a tight fit but I like that in a trail shoe. It has just enough cushion to protect but not too much so you can fell really well. It also seemed to drain well when running in very wet conditions. All inov-8 shoes I have ran on trails or OCR seem to handle water well and mud. If looking for a shoe that has lots of cushion then this is not the shoe. If looking for a shoe that has great feel and protection then this is it. I recommend this shoe for anyone who needs a shoe for rocky and muddy conditions.

This fits much different than my current inov-8 shoes. The whole show is narrower and feels tight plus they have way more cushion. Also, the shoes feel a little short, like I should have sized up. That said, they look fabulous and I wish they fit.

This is the first time I've ever ordered a Mens size shoe so I was prepared to have issues with the fit. But I am pleasantly surprised. The size 5 Mens fits very much like the Women's 6.5 that I wear in Innov8 shoes. I'm quite happy about that because I'm often irritated that a shoe I really like in this brand is available in Mens sizes only. Now I can go crazy.......as long as the Size 5 is available!

These are a good looking shoe but I think they are sized wrong. I have owned three other pairs of inov-8. I like them for cycling and walking. I still own an old pair of the Flyroc 310. I held the new pair next to my old pair. The Trailroc 270 is much shorter and narrower even though they are both 8.5.

These shoes were comfortable right out of the box, no breaking in required. The show runs wider intentionally as the description says. I use these at Burn Bootcamp, where they are great for burpees and mountain climbers. The rubber on the bottom sticks to the floor, so you don’t slip.

My second pair of F-lites. Cute and supple. Very form-fitting and feather light, almost slipperlike. Adding one of those low profile arch support inserts (heel-arch only) makes these shoes the most comfortable ones I own. Perfect for the gym (or everywhere else because you won't want to take them off).
