Whether your workout consists of flipping tires and working your way across a dangling spiderweb of rope, speed drills at the high school track, or a jacked up mash up of functional fitness drills, high intensity cardio, and free weights at the gym, the Inov8 Men's F Lite 195 Running Shoe keeps you grounded. This lightweight shoe stays low the ground while the slightly cushy midsole cushions every footfall when you're pushing the limits of your physical prowess. The mesh upper offers your foot a hit of fresh air when your efforts exceed sweat limits. The attached TPU lacing system not only holds the laces but offers your foot a bit of support when you're hopping through semi tires or carrying concrete cinder blocks from one end of a football field to the other. Antimicrobial treatment minimizes the extent to which your shoes stink. The removable 3mm foam insole keeps you in touch with the ground while offering a bit of paw protection when you're traveling over bumpy roads. The heel and forefoot drop is more than nothing but less than something at only 3mm. Highly responsive to the world underfoot, this shoe will challenge your ability to be mobile if you've previously only used traditional athletic shoes traditional have a 10 12mm heel forefoot drop. If you've been lowering your well heeled expectations and changed your gait to a more midfoot strike, you'll be walking pretty. RopeTec on the outsole helps your spider like climbing, and Sticky compound on the F lite sole gives you a firm footing on fickle terrain. Get in fart lek drills on the track or force yourself to flip the tires just one more lap than usual, and know your foot won't founder in this lightweight, close fitting shoe.
