inov-8 f-LITE 185 Review

inov-8 f-LITE 185 Review

I just can’t go past the inov-8 f-LITE Range for my choice of good all round road running shoes. The inov-8 f-LITE 185 are the Precision Women’s Version of my favourite inov-8 f-LITE 195.
If you have a wide foot you may want to look at the inov-8 f-LITE 239. It is exactly the same shoe as the 185 but a wider fore foot fit.
The f-LITE range is traditionally a Cross Fit Shoe but I love wearing this range on the road, dirt, grass, treadmill. They are my Sydney City training shoes.
What makes the f-LITE 185 so special is that they only weigh 183 Grams on my kitchen scales yet they give my feet all the protection they need for the many kilometers I put into them a week racing around the streets of Sydney with my Personal Training Clients. I have had stress fractures in 2010 and since wearing inov-8 shoes I have not had any injuries. inov-8 shoes have taught me how to run lighter and more efficiently on my feet. Continue Reading

Inov-8 Trailroc 245 Male or 236 Female

 

I was given a pair of inov-8 trailroc 245 by my sponsors Barefoot Inc to try (They can be a uni-sex fit if needed). I was keen to give them a go. I tested them to the max, wearing the inov-8 trailroc on a rocky hill session on the Tuesday around Watson’s bay, then a Friday Night a 28km trail run (carrying a 3kilos of gear in my pack), Saturday 18km trail run (carrying a 3kilos of gear in my pack) and a Sunday 32 km trail run (carrying a 3kilos of gear in my pack) all along the ruggered GNW and my feet felt nice and protected. I could train on the Monday in my f-lite 190 without any problems. Continue Reading

Inov8 X-Talon 212. Are they worth running down the street 1/2 naked to save them.

I have been given a pair of Inov8 X-Talon 212 to try. They are so good I ran down the streets of the Inner West in just my undies, yes topless, chasing a group of 4 young adults to stop them from stealing them. My husband caught 2 of them I caught the faster 2 who made it 100m up the street. We rounded the  thieves up with the help of a few neighbours, and the police was called and they were charged with theft. The charge was later down graded to a hefty fine.
Okay, I obviously love the Inov8 X-Talon 212. They are light and feel so free. I find the grip amazing.  I love just love wearing them. They are so good. I actually look forward to putting them on.
