The inov-8 F-Lite 252 is a great running and fitness shoe which is reaping brilliant reviews worldwide because of its blend of lightness, comfort and forefoot spread. We review this great shoe and break down some of the important features…
Most notably is that it offers one of the most natural fits, with more room in the toe box, allowing your toes to splay out – this is due to its 3mm drop and a wide forefoot, plus it comes with Rope-Tec for burn protection during rope climbs.
The sole, found on all F-Lite’s, delivers amazing grip and stability when running or training. The Meta-Flex system provides a natural flex point in the shoe, allowing the forefoot to function naturally with each step, while the Fascia Band delivers additional energy with each step, helping you move faster and more efficiently. The sole is specifically designed using rock climbing rubber technology to optimize grip, especially in wet conditions.
Other notable features include the following:
• Durable EVA foam midsole for cushioning and flexibility
• Synthetic Mesh and TPU upper with mesh lining
• TPU lacing system for a secure fit
• Performance Fit Last provides a secure fit and ensures reduced internal movement
The inov-8 F-Lite 252 is a lightweight, neutral runner, and performance is achieved with its contoured and lightly padded tongue which gives an enhanced comfort. It is great for athletes developing a strong natural running style and those looking for a stripped back option that delivers a minimum drop height and maximum comfort when lifting.
