The shoe was reviewed as being a bit small so the recommendation was to order 1/2 size larger. The width is (for me) a bit narrow but that is usual for my foot. Overall a great product.
I looked into a nice Crossfit shoe and after reading reviews it appeared that these fit the bill. One thing I noticed was that lots of people mentioned the quality material and construction. When I received the shoes, I was taken with the lightness and color. I laced them up for a workout and was impressed by how my feet felt in them. I could feel the ground's groves and bumps and felt very solid when I was lifting. I have never had a minimalist shoe and it was a little strange at first but now I look forward to my workouts each morning.
Now for the not so good. I developed a tear in the mesh after only the 6th workout. I was doing a box jump and when I came down there was a tear. I don't know how it happened because I didn't feel it. The next day I called the company and was told to provide pictures. Once they got the pictures I was told that it wasn't their problem and that I was out of luck. I have had poor customer service from companies in the past but I was expecting a little more than a brush off from this one. My mistake. This rating is not about Inov-8's customer service but about the shoe and the fact that it tore so easily I just wanted to share my experience with this company. I will continue to wear these shoes during my workouts but I have a feeling they will not last an overly long time.
1/16/2015 Update. I ended up fixing the shoes with some shoe goo and that fix has held up remarkably well. Just last week the shoes have started to come away from the sole and I will be needing to find new workout shoes in the very near future. I stand by my original review. These shoes are not as durable as they should be for the price. Also I never heard back from the company. What a shame.
i love them. they look fantastic, soft running shoes the color is just like it is describe on the image. great deal great seller. i though the heel was going to be to high but no. they are great.
