I had Inov-8s a few years ago, loved them but they were ugly. Decided to try Metcons because so many people at my CrossFit box love theirs. Those Metcons are awful to run in, and when I had to do workout with broad jumps, injured my ankle due to the excessively firm platform. So I went back to Inov-8s and bought these. Thankfully Inov-8 shoes are way cuter now. They also improved their tech from my old shoe, so they're a better all-around shoe for all that CrossFit throws at you.
I’m still breaking them in but so far they’re great. I use them for cross fit and I prefer running in these over the more “minimal” “bare foot” shoe. They also have a little bit of lift for squatting. They fit true to size but are a little snug when you first start wearing them. This may be just my original incorrect assumption but the “W” does not stand for “wide”.
These are great for CrossFit! The fit is very true to the chart. The arch is different than running shoes, I slipped some extra arch supports in mine to customize them. The toebox is amazing. I was tired of toes squished together into a point. That's not even natural! These don't do that. They support me so well yet I can run in them without shin splints. They are breathable and I think they look great too!
The most comfortable shoe I've tried! I use them for crossfit and they have a great, stable base but are more comfortable and easier to run in than nanos and metcons.
I absolutely love these shoes!! I have wide feet and one foot is a half size bigger than the other thanks to a break many years ago. They fit perfect. There’s notchs at the ankle that prevent rubbing on the ankle. I use them for CrossFit and they are comfortable during everything. Great purchase!
Not only are the sizes Entirely WRONG.... after going up half a size the shoe still squeezed my foot uncomfortably. (Yes I have a pair of other inov8 shoes so I KNOW the size I need.) the seller ALSO sent me a USED pair of shoes instead of new!!!!!
I have wide feet and it’s hard to find a good quality shoe that fits properly. This shoe fits like a glove and it’s excellent for my CrossFit or weightlifting workouts.
Yuck! This was the strangest fitting shoe I've ever tried. The bumps to lock in your heel weren't comfortable at all. Perhaps they'd break in over time... But the shoe wasn't worth finding out. Just strange...
