Nice looking shoe. I bought them for my husband in wide and half a size bigger and he couldn’t even fit his foot in it. Definitely runs way smaller.

Love the shoe. The fit is great. The width is perfect, but ran just a little short in length. Going to order 1/2 size larger than I normally wear in athletic shoes.

Cute shoe and great colors in the coral and burgundy, but these offered no arch support. I wanted to like them, but really needed some support for HIIT sessions.

I like this as a lightweight outdoor/hiker boot, they are labeled train runners but I personally don't run in these. The biggest complaint I've seen in reviews is they are too narrow - they do run a bit on the narrow side but I found w/ thin socks and giving them time to break in, they are definitely "snug" but not too narrow to be comfortable for me. They look good with jeans and I'm glad I got them.

These are the company's PRECISION FIT shoes, which are narrower than standard shoes. The description is wrong. Go to the company's web site to understand the difference. I personally have long skinny feet, so these are a godsend for me, but I'm not like most people.

I bought a pair of Roclites in the past and these are very stiff and hard and bulky compared to my previous pair. Will be returning them.

The shoes fit very well. I ordered two sizes to make sure my orthotics would fit into at least one pair. I inserted my orthotics, which are quite sturdy and rather thick. Then I walked quickly around my wood floor to try to see how much support these shoes would give me during a low-impact exercise class that I attend regularly. I was disappointed in the shoes' amount of support, even with my orthotics in the shoes. There just didn’t seem to be enough support, at least not for me. So I regretfully returned the shoes. My podiatrist once told me that my feet are “floppy.” (I’m loose jointed.) That might explain why I can’t stand to walk around the house without shoes: My feet get tired. That might be why these shoes didn’t work for me. I’m high maintenance!

I love the look of this shoe and how light-weight it is. Great for the gym. But I should have gotten the 6 instead of the 5.5.

The shoes fit well and as described. I thought these were cross-training shoes. When I tried them on and moved around in them a bit, I decided they were perhaps marathon training shoes. They definitely do not have the support of previous cross-trainers (other brands) that I have used. As a result, I am returning these shoes.

I have the black inov-8 Roclite 290 which is wide enough for my very wide, troublesome feet. These are one of the few shoes I can wear comfortably. I thought that blue version was really cute and wanted to give it a try. Unforutnatley, they are a full half size smaller than the previous pair, so back they go.

These shoes run about a half size too big like some of the other reviews also say here. I've only worn Inov8 shoes for years now and I was surprised that these weren't true to the size it states. I'm always a Women's 8.5(US) and they were definitely too long....more like a size Women's 9. I'm returning and ordering the size 8 as I love the fit and style of shoe.

I really loved these shoes but had to send back as they run insanely small. I am typically comfortable in a 9, and the 9.5 size in these shoes was still way too small. I have never in my life worn a 10, but that's what these require for me. That said, they are naturally wide and fit the shape of my feet naturally and comfortably. They really lightweight, feel well built, and have a nice sole for the trail.

The shoe was a bit narrower than expected, even though I've owned 7 or 8 pairs of Inov-8s and usually like their narrower toe boxes. My main issue with this shoe is the shortness of the laces. They need to be 8 inches longer than they are. The shoe looks amazing (though I would need trim up the stitching in a few places), but they are unwearable with the provided laces.

This is my husband’s 3rd pair of this exact model of shoe. He loves them! He runs 5-7 miles a day, 5-6 days a week and he uses these as his runners and he has another pair for daily recreational use too. We like this color combo because the grey makes it more subtle. The 2 others we have purchased were all royal blue and they draw a bit of attention. LOL. Highly recommend... great buy! And much cheaper then the first boutique outdoor hiking store we bought from in person for almost $100 more! Note- my husband is also a big guy, he does bodybuilding... he’s 6’ tall and about 230lbs of solid muscle, he loves these shoes, they hold up well!

These shoes are really cute, but they run very small. I measure a 7.5, bought an 8 as I usually do in workout shoes, and I'd probably go up to a 9 if I wanted to try again. However, I'm surprised no one mentioned there's a piece inside that rubs against the inside sides of your feet. It's quite noticeable and very annoying. So I won't be reordering in another size. Also, the laces are way too long. They're cute laces, so it's a shame they couldn't be the right size.

Nice shoe - comfortable and with plenty of cushion. Runs slightly small but I ordered a 1/2 size up so that worked well. Would have rated the comfort 5 star if it had a bit more arch support but I'll add an insert. Would buy the shoe again and I have problems finding comfortable shoes.

This is the shoe that I have been looking for, I have tried several inov-8 shoes and this is one of the best. I do cross country and trail running averaging 30 miles a week. The shoes are lightweight with a neutral fit. Love them.

For me these are fantastic, I feel they fit as the shoes say. I wear them outdoors in true woods, not rocks or stone trails, they are perfect in the woods, waterproofing would make the 6 stars

My new shoe brand, I have terrible back, leg and knee problems. The only shoes that I could wear were asics. Now, I like ASICS, they are a little runnng specific though. These shoes feel great and the styles work in the office, after for casual drinks or whatever. All day comfort

I was looking for a trail running shoe for long distances/ultra marathons. The speedgoats got good reviews and I wear hokas for the road so thought I would love these. Initially I was impressed. The Vibram sole is very sticky and would have great traction on most trails. None of the hokas are “cute” but they make up for it in function and these are better styled then most, and I love the color combos. The cushion is the perfect combo of there but shoe is still light. Unfortunately I felt like I was being pushed into supination (because of the arch support.?) I’m typically a neutral/under- pronator so was just not the best position for my foot. Great shoe though!
