Whether running, lifting, climbing or any form of intense exercise, the INOV-8 Bare-X 210 Cross Training Shoe is a trainer designed to withstand it all. Superbly durable and with features tailoring it as the ideal gym shoe, this can be the difference between having to stop, or breaking your personal best. Featuring a Zero-Drop height, this shoe is ideal for short runs, providing minimal support to allow for fast, flexible forefoot running.

With regular running shoes I had issues with my toes sliding forward during activities like sled drags, tire flips and burpees. The pressure would cause my toes would fall asleep! I blamed my poor feet until I discovered these shoes. They are very minimalist, but surprisingly, they support my foot so much better than my Brooks running shoes did. The toe box is nice and roomy so my toes can spread naturally and the laces don't cut off circulation to my toes. I also feel very stable with the lower heel. I even prefer running in these, which I really didn't expect. I hardly even know they're there.
Overall for going to Crossfit workouts, these work great, they fit true to form (I wear a 10.5 street shoe and use a 10.5 Inov-8, I might have been able to even use a 10, in comparison I use a 11 or 11.5 running shoe for room for my feet to breath/swell). The Invo-8 shoe is not bulky, gives the feeling of almost a slipper, which works good for the more active Metcon's in CF.
What the Inov-8 230 does:
* breathes well
* true to size
* snug fit, good for various lateral and side to side movements (like burpees and box jumps)
* great for Crossfit workout, might be good for trail runs or shorter runs (5 or 10Ks) but I haven't tried
What it doesn't do:
* Not a distance running shoe (at lest for me)
Buy for Crossfit or a similar workout program but not to run a marathon in.
The only issue I have with this version of Innov8's is that on ice or any slippery surface you will have no traction.
I have also hiked for weeks at a time and these shoes are the best. They rarely smell and dry fast if rain should hit. I would not sugget for sno hiking.
