        I wear a size 7 in most shoes, but a 7 1/2 in running. I got these in a size 7 and glad I did not size up. Plenty of room. I do wear thin socks. My foot is narrow with high arch. I use them for Body Combat, Body Pump, and HIT classes at the gym. Great traction and some cushioning. No break in period needed. Very stylish. I would not run in these in less short distance in a class. Great gym shoe!

          Comments about Womens Inov-8 F-Lite 185 Cross Training Shoe:

          I bought the shoe 1/2 size up from what I normally wear, as suggested by the website. I was a little apprehensive at first because I have such tiny feet and there were no options to be specific with width size.

          I put in the SuperFeet and man.... I LOVE these shoes. Very good to run in , as I switch shoes every few weeks . I also weight train and have been Crossfitting for the last 6 years . I highly recommend this shoe.

            Comments about Womens Inov-8 F-Lite 185 Cross Training Shoe:

            I wear these shoes primarily for CrossFit. My first pair were the men's version of the same style. I read a lot about the fit difference between the men's and women's, but honestly they feel the same to me, and the men's also have the women's converted size on them. My foot is pretty average as far as width and arch. Just thought I'd throw that in incase maybe you like they men's colors better or something. Anyway, I love these for CrossFit. Because of the low drop I feel stable during lifts, and they have just enough cushion to provide shock absorption during box jumps and short runs. I like them for short runs, but need a little more padding for anything over about 2 miles (I'm not a super experienced minimalist runner). Also, because I wear them primarily for CrossFit, I wear my normal shoe size instead of my running shoe size (I go half size up on my dedicated running shoes). The extra room just felt awkward and less stable during my workouts, but they're still not so short that they bother my toes on my short runs. They're also lightweight, flexible, and comfortable. My first pair were black and my new ones are the purple/blue, I like the look of both and they both get compliments!
            *bonus! If you're new to a more minimal shoe and don't really understand what the different "drops" mean, the inov8 site has great info and explanations! But you can't beat the Roadrunner VIP price and service! :)

              It has been my experience that these shoes fit true to size. I ordered a half-size up like the website encouraged and they were too big. I've returned them and now I'm waiting for the return to be processed and shipped back to me. I am so excited about these shoes that it is driving me crazy to wait. Order the size that you normally wear!

                  I was worried about switching from my minimus to these bc of the slightly thicker sole, I honestly can not tell too much if a difference. They have exceeded my expectations thus far. The rope protection is a ++++

                    The website recommended buying this shoe 1/2 size larger than my normal shoe size. I did and it fits perfect. These shoes are amazing for my cross-fit trainings - very lightweight and great traction. I don't like them near as much for cardio. I am not a runner, but I use the elliptical and other cardio machines quite a bit. The elliptical has a textured foot pan and I can feel every bump through the bottom of the shoes. I bought them for my strength training/cross fit training and I LOVE them for this use.
