Fit and comfort: Bought these for teenage son (high school) with medium/narrow feet and very high arches. The fit is true and he finds them comfortable. He walks a lot and is on his feet a lot but is not a distance runner. Look: He gets a lot of positive feedback on the look & color from his friends and peers. (He chose neon green.) Wear and tear: The sides and top are a mesh that is partially see-through, which is actually very cool looking. The mesh has a water repellent outer liner that keeps his feet dry, no small accomplishment when we are getting lots of rain (hurricane season.) The rest of us are drying our shoes after exercise outside and he throws his in the closet.

Sizing was a little off. I ended up in a 10.5. About a half size bigger than usual. But 10,5 gave me enough toe room and was wide enough as well. Overall I love these shoes. They did great on a 10.5 trail run in a heavy rain, up and down the mountain, tenchnical terrain. Very impressed and would buy again!

These crosstrainers look SHARP. I love the shape of them and how they look on my feet. It took a couple days for my feet to adjust to them and to break them in, but I'm so glad that I did. I usually buy Asics, but I could definitely get behind inov-8 shoes. I wear an 8.5 in Asics and needed a U.S. 9 in these.

Fit is definitely mis-sized, but the real problem is that it feels like these shoes are fighting with my feet (at every step) and winning! Had to stop wearing them. Too much pain. "Upgraded" to 195s, but the material started cracking after 3 weeks. You can see the white socks showing through on the photo below. Thank you, Zappos for taking them back (it was a common complaint). Now, I'm moving away from inov-8 to On Cloud.

This will be my 5th pair of Innovate shoes. This is the first pair that doesn't feel great, like the other 4 pair did. I ordered the exact same size as the first 4 and it was about a half size small. The replacement pair of the next size up was a bit too big. On top of that, this is the first pair that seemed on the narrow side, never a width problem before. I like the shoes in general, but I won't be suggesting to my friends that they must get a pair, like I did with the prior four pair.

I love these! They fit pretty true to size for athletic shoes (I always order half size up). I wear 7.5 in dress shoes and order 8 in these. I lift and do conditioning in them and they're perfect. They are on the flatter side but I prefer that for lifting. I have had several people at the gym ask about them because they look great, too!

I have had three pairs of Inov8 in the past and have always loved them. However, this pair ripped at the front of the foot and did not even last a year. This pair came with the rope tech which in the past has kept the shoes in good condition.

Pay attention to the sizing! I initially ordered the wrong size because I mistook the UK size to the be the US size. This is a British company, so the UK size appears first. I was searching for a lightweight hiking shoe to replace clunky boots. I hiked the Inca Trail in these. They were perfect. They provide the ankle support of a traditional hiking boot without the weight. When you're going up and down like I did, that extra pound of shoe leather in a traditional hiking boot can really add up to slow you down and make the trek even more difficult. These things are light as a feather. They are truly waterproof; one afternoon we hiked for hours in the rain and my feet stayed warm and dry. (Just make sure your pants aren't dumping water straight down into the shoe.) Added bonus is the tongue which is attached to the vamp to keep debris out of the shoe. I did not have to dump rocks out at the end of the day! The icing on the cake is the contrasting color lace/sole, which looks really good against the black.

I’ve purchased the F-Lite 235 for a few years now and always been a size 6. For some reason the V2 size 6 in is 1/2 to 1 size too big! It’s crazy. The length is much different. I’m going to try and order a smaller size to see how it goes.

Shipped these to New Zealand at some expense to replace my old Inov8 245s. Disappointed that a very similar shoe from the same manufacture is at least a half-size too small. That said they seem pretty well put together. Slightly more padded and cushioned than I was expecting and the toe box is more conventional (narrow) . Hope this is not a move away from minimalist by in0v8. Liked them enough to go looking for a the next size up.

Even though these shoes were not for me but for my daughter, I'm giving them a five because she loves them and I love Zappos' customer service. I ordered her size but the shoes seemed to run a half size smaller. Called up Zappos and they over nighted me a half size bigger at no extra cost even before I returned the original pair. I know that may not seem like a big deal to most on here but for a father way out of his depth who ordered the wrong size 3 DAYS before the start of school, it was huge. Thank you Zappos for the excellent and friendly customer service - and for talking a dad down from the ledge.

Love these shoes. Been running different OCR courses since 2012 with all different shoes. These are hands down the best shoes. Fit was perfect. The shoes stayed light even when wet. Great grip in the mud, cleaned up easily, and hardly look different than new after the first race. My favorite race shoes I have ever tried.

I love it. I have flat feet, and they feel great for me. A ton of support with a minimalistic arch. My only complaint is that I wish they looked better or had other color options.

Bought these for cross-fit, cross-training type workouts and found them hard on the soles of my feet. I like the look and style of the shoe. I also purchased the inov-8 F-Lite 260 and those offered just enough support for the jumping, burpee, box work type exercises. I like this brand and am happy I found a style that offered low-profile with some support.

I believe one shoe was larger than the other. Then I thought maybe one foot is larger than the other. I held the shoes up to match toe to heel. The right shoe is smaller.... ugh. The sizes are the same though.

Great sneaker. Fits well. I use it for both lifting and running. Had the 235 model and can definitely feel the added weight but more sole vision when running.
