Recently received a pair of the 230's. Very impressed with
the quality and styling in the flesh. Fit was just about
perfect. Might try half a size down next time. Have to wear
thicker socks for best fit. Overall awesome shoe for shorted
distance running up to 5km. Number one shoe for Crossfit for
sure. Completed snatch drills in these bad boys and they
I bought my 230's a half size smaller than my running shoe
as recommended on the Inov8 website. They fit perfectly and
are the best shoe I've ever used for CrossFit. Previously
I've used Nike Free's and Vibram FiveFingers. The shoes are
great for Olympic lifts, quick Metcons and running as well.
I bought these solely for the purpose of Crossfit workouts.
I have not regretted the purchase one bit, they are
comfortable, durable and they look awesome. I still get
compliments every time I wear them. They are a great hybrid,
they work great for running and climbing but just as well
for power lifting and Olympic lifts. I am also active in a
self defense association and they are my choice of footwear
for those kind of activities as well. The services provided
by wiggle are great, I haven't found better deals anywhere
in the world. Get this shoe if you are looking for a shoe
that will help you bring your performance to the next level.
I've been running with these shoes for a few weeks now.
Excellent grip and very good flexibility. Most of all they
are very lightweight while still being durable. Comfortable
to wear as shoe about town for walking too.
This pair of shoes have taken my uphill running to a new
level - I have never before gotten such a fantastic feeling
when running uphill, and I have tried others like Saucony
Kilkenny, and other lightweight shoes as well. It's not only
the lightweight, but also the feeling of totally trusting
the grip of the shoes that make this pair of shoes unique.
So my advise to you is : GO BUY IT! The only thing I have to
remark is that they are a bit narrow in the front of the
shoe, but that feeling disappeared after a few minutes of
running. About me: from Norway (Bergen) 37 year 176 cm, 77
