Shoes are not just shoes. You cannot comfortably wear your male partner's shoes, just like he cannot squeeze his paw into your ballet slipper flats. It is this fundamental truth that motivated Inov8 to create the Women's F Lite 215 Trail Running Shoe. Based on the Inov8 F lite 230, this women specific shoe sports a narrow heel and greater sole surface area for increased stability and grip on uneven surfaces, including those littered with your kid's toys. The upper consists of a lightweight, breathable mesh to keep your foot fairly cool and dry through intense workouts. TPU laminate doubles as a lacing system and lateral support, while Rope Tec reinforcements protect your paws from friction burns as your scream up and shimmy down the 15 foot rope. Whether you're a slight heel striker or a full on mid foot runner, the injected EVA midsole cushions your footfall for softer, longer running comfort, while the midsole fascia band gives your foot a little extra push forward. Along the same lines, the 6mm heel forefoot drop supports a mild heel strike while encouraging a more forward foot strike. The F Lite 215 employs the Precision last in conjunction with the female focused shape. Now, when you're ripping off sets of burpees or running through your urban trail system, your foot stays still in the shoe instead of flopping around like a fish out of water. Sticky compound on the sole ups the ante on grip so your wheels don't come out from under you when the ground is slick or you're squatting with big weight.
