The shoe of choice among the CrossFit athletes at Again Faster HQ, Inov-8 F-lites are light and comfortable, and provide solid ground feel for lifting, running, and jumping. The number in the model name refers to the gram weight of each shoe: the 230s weigh just over 8 ounces per shoe, very lightweight and barely noticeable during training.
They have a 6mm differential (the difference in height between the toe and the heel), making them near-flat and providing a stable platform under high load. All Inov-8 F-lite shoes feature a sticky compound sole for high grip in wet or dry conditions, and are made with a performance last. The “last” is the form used to determine the shape and fit of the shoe; a performance last is very close to the foot, allowing minimal internal movement during activity.
The Azure and White 230s were the first Inov-8 shoe to make their way into CrossFit training, adopted via a groundswell of support from the sport's most elite athletes. These athletes weren't paid to wear the shoes; they knew a good thing when they found it.
Please note: Shoes fit true to size. For women's sizing, please order 1.5 sizes down from your normal women's running shoe size.
Warning: Inov-8 230s use soft foam on the sole and are not built to withstand the high friction of climbing rope ascents/descents. We recommend using athletic tape over the shoe when rope climbing, or finding another shoe for this particular activity.
