Inov-8 F-Lite 245 Training Shoe Review

First Impressions: Wow is this shoe light and flexible!

Definitely a minimalist style training shoe. If you’re really into proprioception, this is your shoe. The upper is made out of a breathable knit material that keeps your feet cool and feels good around the foot. Because the midsole isn’t as high as other shoes and the drop is only 3mm, you definitely feel closer to the ground.

I love these shoes when I’m doing bodyweight movements or lifting light (not that I can lift heavy anyways). Once I start adding weight the shoes feel less stable than say a Metcon or Nano. And unless you’re proficient at forefoot striking when running, you won’t want to log too many miles in these.

Overall, this is a lightweight, flexible minimalist shoe for that think less is more.
