Too Small, but Light as a Feather

The shoe weighs almost nothing, but it was way too tight on my feet. The size chart on the box differed from the size chart on the shoe (as I was recently asked a question because I reviewed the men’s version of this shoe, maybe I was sent the wrong shoe…). So, I might have been wearing a men’s size 8 insted of a woman’s size 9.5, which is what I ordered. The Burgundy color and style of the shoe in person, made it look almost ‘orthopedic’ and therefore, unattractive. Also, there is no arch support.

Great cross training just needs more bottom sole support

I really Love this cross trainer shoe and I was Looking for something I’ve never seen before so I checked it out and ordered ! I normally wear size 11 but as the reviews said to order a half size up and they were on the money !I got the 11-1/2 that fit perfect but if you have a wide foot if you scroll through the sizes it will show the wider sizes . In all these are pricy but I will definitely order another pair down the road as I need them. I totally recommend this cross training shoe ” the fit ; look and overall experience !” ” INOV F-Lite G230 Mens Black & Grey !”

Best CrossFit shoe on the market.

This is a game changer for CrossFit. I went from a Nike CrossFit shoe to this, no comparison. I will forever buy this shoe for CrossFit!

Adhesive immediately broke down

I noticed unusual adhesive residue when received. The forefoot broke down during the first wearing and split the rubber sole. This is not normal performance for innov8 shoes which I’ve worn for ten years with good satisfaction. To the customer service rep who will read this, I am interested in an exchange because it may have been just this pair and am otherwise very satisfied with this shoe model. Amazon is being a pain and won’t let me.

Good shoe good price- runs narrow

Shoe seemed it would provide the support I was needing in a training shoe but even though I ordered a wide width, the shoe seemed to run very narrow.

Most comfortable shoes ever

I have size 12 narrow feet and have never been able to find narrow shoes in my size until these. They are amazing. I am a powerlifter and these are great.

Good shoes

Feel great and awesome support for the ankle. Just tough to get on, very narrow but once they are on they are excellent especially for weights and HIIT

Great shoes

I received these shoes as a gift – originally received the wrong size/different color – but OutlandUSA was quick to send me easy-to-use return shipping info and immediately re-shipped me the right size! Very responsive ! The shoes are great – very comfortable with a grippy sole.
