Inov-8 womens Minimalist – Reviews


I really liked this shoe, but it is just too narrow for me even in a wide size. I have a slightly wide foot, but not usually enough to warrant a wide size in most shoes. The part of the shoe where the toe box meets the lacing is fairly tight and not comfortable on my foot. Unfortunately this part of the shoe is not adjustable, so no matter how loose I make the end of the laces near the toe box, it will always be too tight around my foot. Otherwise the style looks great, and the soles are very sticky rubber.

Not as comfy as most Inov-8’s

Very stiff heel and a bit on the small side. They look great though. I may hire someone to break them in for me.

Wide width is not wide

Ordered a wide but these shoes are no where near a wide width.

The insole slides around the crazy…

Pretty bad design with the insole not staying in place… The fit is a bit snug too and for barefoot shoes they are kinda bulky. I bought a W-size 6.5, can only wear them without socks!!!

Great Minimalist Option

This is my second pair – they’re comfortable, grip well, and super light. I would recommend for runners that prefer the minimalist running shoe.

Runs small

I have had inov 8s before and they were amazing. However, these fit smaller than normal.

Love these for powerlifting

Love these for powerlifting. These give the front of the bottom of my feet the room they need to spread out when lifting- unlike other popular flat shoes people use for powerlifting.
