Product Description:

INOV-8® F-LITE 230 :: Seeking a shoe that'll take you from trails to tarmac with ease? Look no further than the INOV-8® F-Lite 230. Through the miracles of modern technology, these trainers are packed full of foot-protecting features, while still weighing in at a next-to-nothing 8.1 ounces. Perfect for anyone who's interested in transitioning to a natural, minimalist running style, the F-Lite 230s offer a low-profile, a teeny 6 mm heel to toe drop, and exceptional flexibility for that almost-barefoot feeling. Slip them on and enjoy the easy transition from hard trails to even harder pavement. 8.1 ounces

Unisex sizing is in men's D width. Women size down 1.5 sizes. Ex.: If you are a women's size 7 in your running shoe, you will choose unisex size 5.5

Features & Benefits:

  • With a mere 6 mm drop from heel to toe, you'll really feel the ground - and really appreciate the stability these trainers provide
  • Enjoy cushioning from midsoles crafted from high-quality EVA that give a resilient layer that enhances responsiveness
  • F-Lite outsoles are lightweight, durable and designed for road and hard-packed trail running
  • 3 mm foot beds add another layer of comfort and springy support
  • Full mesh uppers wrap your feet in a snug, breathable layer
  • You'll love more support with less weight. At the midfoot, minimal TPU webbing lacing system provides just enough support and stability without adding unwanted weight
  • Stay on your feet in slippery conditions thanks to sticky rubber soles that grip the ground for optimal performance

Comments about Inov-8 f-lite 230 Trail Running Shoe:

These are hands down the most comfortable shoes I own. After retiring them from service, I grab these if I plan to be on my feet all day and walking. They wrap around your foot like not other shoe I have tried. They are very flexible.

They are very nice for SoCal dry hardback trails as they have a nice grip, but it isn't really luggy (pokes through the bottom).

They don't really have much cushion. If you are a heal striker you might not like them as much.

I'm mid-foot, 175 lbs.
