I bought these to wear exclusively when I'm doing weight training at the gym. They are exactly what I was looking for. I've worn them once. They are comfortable, attractive and allow me to feel the floor beneath my feet.

Love the style. My daughter is happy with the 10.5 I ordered; it was too short for me. The 11 was also too short so I returned them.

These are amazing! I needed a minimalist shoe to replace my old Merrell trail gloves that are no longer made. The mesh is really comfortable and there's tons of toe box room. They do look a little wide when you put them on, but with my high arches I need that extra space.

One of the better looking and fitting flat shoes available right now. Bought the V2 last year. It takes some time to get accustomed to flat shoes so be patient. As they say everything starts with your feet.

After one workout this shoe hit all the marks I was looking for. My reason for choosing this shoe was the type of toe protection it had. I have never tried INOV-8.

The fit out of the box is a bit roomy and wide - but that is to be expected because I have a narrow foot. I use volume filling inserts to correct this and now I think the fit is correct. Haven't had a chance to do some heavy trail work but I think they will be OK.

I bought my first pair of INOV barefoot barefoot running shoes back when they really were barefoot. These are just sneakers, and just ok. I wish I had bought 20 pair almost 10 years ago. They were awesome and gave me great balance - I have MS and it's a problem. People used to stop me on the street and ask about them. They were so vibrant and sleekly styled. INOV NOW SUCKS!!!!!!!!! Go elsewhere if you want a true, AND ATTRACTIVE, barefoot shoe!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Love these shoes. I feel connected to the earth once again. I would agree with a previous reviewer- I wish they would have stitched the tongue to the shoes. The tongue is constantly off to the side. Other than that I really love the feel of these shoes.

I've always been a huge fan of the F-LITE 235 line so was excited to try V3. At first, I felt iffy about them because the toe box is not as wide as the original or V2. But I just wore them this morning for a WOD that involved running and DB snatch, and I felt properly supported during the snatches yet minimalist enough on the running. Overall, I love them! Also, I think they will last longer than the previous versions because the mesh is more woven/integrated into the shoe, so it shouldn't tear like it has on my other 235s. The gray and teal are lovely, too. (Bummed the purple was sold out of my size!)

The toe box on this is much more tapered than my previous pairs of Inov8. I don't know if it was that form difference or that this style runs small but these were very tight across the toe joint line. thats the widest part of my foot and the shoe was narrowing by then. I need a full size larger than normal (9.5). The nice part of the shoe is that the plate inside really protects the bottom of the foot from rock gouges, but is still flexible to run well and isn't heavy. However, I am getting something else to replace them after a few uses as the pinching across the forefoot is painful.

These were purchased for my boyfriend. He is getting older and didn’t want a sneaker with a bulky heal. He’s happy with these. They’re lightweight, have good support without bulk. Also nice to have half sizes.

I have 2 complaints about this shoe so far. First one being the tongue is not completely sewn down the sides. These have that small loop in the middle of the tongue that you pass one row of the laces through. Second the insoles are removable. For my personal taste I rather have them secured in place. Sometimes when removing them the sole comes out. Hopefully they last as long as my last pair of New Balance Minimus. They seem to be of lesser quality. Time will tell. So far they are comfortable and fit my foot well. I've come accustomed to wearing barefoot style shoes. So far I'm happy.

I like how the shoe soles are as wide as the fabric top, so my foot does not spill out over the edge. Been seeking the perfect shoe for my workouts and I think I found it. Very comfortable.

I’m normally between an 11 and 11.5 in most shoes and have a wide foot (E or EE). The 11.5 was perfect. Nice and wide toe box too. I bought these for gym shoes and wanted a flat bottom with minimal drop… they check all the boxes!
