Inov-8 Women’s F-lite 215 Fitness Shoe
F-Lite 215 Features
The Inov-8 F-lite 215 is a heavy duty women’s athletic shoe that comes with a myriad of features. If you do a ton of weightlifting or like to run on rougher terrain, then this shoe was built for you. The sole of the shoe is made of a soft synthetic material, while the remainder of the shoe utilizes a combination of textile and synthetic materials in the design.
It can be used as both a racing shoe if you run on occasion or as a training shoe if you happen to use running as your main form of exercise and working out. As is denoted in the name of the shoe, it is fitted specifically for a female wearer.
The sole of the shoe includes a lengthy contact area. This contact area was designed as such to give the runner better grip and focus during their workout routine. The shoe also uses a material that is known as rope-tech. This material can be found on the medial and lateral portions of the midsole, which helps to provide better protection should you wish to go rope climbing.
You will also notice a padded heel cup that was placed into the shoe for extra comfort. There are a variety of sizes that you can choose when considering these shoes. It should be noted that each increase in size costs more than the previous one. As this shoe was designed solely for women, the available shoe sizes range from 6-12. The shoe can be bought in black/pink/grey and grape/blue.
You should notice some immediate benefits when wearing this shoe. It is a relatively well built shoe that should last you a long time. If you rope climb on a regular basis, the rope-tech is a sizable advantage, as it helps greatly in diminishing any possible slippage during wetter conditions. They are lighter shoes, so you’ll find that you can run for long periods of time without feeling that the show is weighing your feet down.Cons
Unlike some other Inov-8 shoes on the market, the F-lite 215 is only available in 2 color choices. Although this likely isn’t a huge deal for most, as the shoe comes in a light color and a darker one, it would be nice if there were more color options to choose from. The shoe is also a narrower fit, so you may not be perfectly comfortable if your feet are wider.
