Inov-8 believes in thinking outside the box when it comes to its fitness shoes, and this particular model is one of the best available. Flexible, stable, and secure, it is built to handle anything you throw at it, as well as anything that you happen to be throwing yourself at. We’ll discuss some of the special features that the Inov-8 F-lite 240 has to offer you.

High Performance

A number of great features make these F-lite shoes the high performer that they are. Midsole destruction is prevented with the help of reinforcement from advanced Rope-Tec. Versatility and flexibility is provided by the Meta-Flex, and these provide you a great fit no matter what, because now they come in different widths per size for your comfort. You don’t want an athletic shoe to get in the way of achieving your maximum athletic performance and these ones most certainly won’t do that.

Stability

You get a huge level of stability, whether you are running or trying to tackle a high-intensity training circuit. This is made possible by a sole design with a larger contact area than ever before. Along with that, you get a sticky outsole and incredibly stable heels so that you can maintain confidence no matter what. The heel-to-toe drop is 6 mm, and the heels are solid enough to make weightlifting that much easier.

Lightweight

Despite these great features, the F-lite 240 doesn’t feel heavy on your feet, even as it offers you fantastic grip and super-fast responses. Despite the new and far more durable midsole, it does not feel dense and ungainly. In fact, they feel practically weightless on your feet. As you put yourself through your paces, all movements feel natural thanks to the Meta-Flex, a patented invention from Inov-8. They are most definitely suitable for any sprints or short runs that you might encounter during your CrossFit workout.

Summary

Inov-8 has done it again with these great shoes, the next evolutionary step after the F-lite 230, one of their most classic models. For even greater precision and fit, they now offer you a standard fitting, which is somewhat wider, along with the precision fitting, which is made for narrower feet. This gives athletes the choice to figure out what is most comfortable for them. It’s not a cheap shoe, but you get what you pay for. In this case, it’s a top-quality athletic shoe that will help you work out, injury free.
