I've run trails in the X-Talon for a year or so. I had to switch to more road running, so I thought I'd try the Road-X. The fit is just a bit looser in the heal, but other than that there were no surprises. The shoe is a little more cushy, which is nice for the road. Overall, this is a light, st... Read More

    I had to order one whole size up from my usual size in shoes. The fit is excellent! I've always been told that my feet are NOT wide but medium width shoes have always been snug on width yet wide shoes are too wide. These Inov-8 running shoes are designed with a slightly wider toe box and fit me better than any athletic shoe I've ever tried on. It's almost like I'm not wearing shoes and the support is amazing even though the foot bed is flatter than most running shoes.

    I have a "bunion" one foot and these shoes are comfortable and forgiving.. great shoes for running nice breathable and the inner sole remove so you can clean or air out. Last a long time.. my other pair is worn out 3years old, but I still wear them, but not for running. .

    I bought these after reading another review, because I was looking for a shoe with a roomy toe box, and this one really fits the bill. But if you have a very narrow foot, you would probably swim in these shoes! I lace them up snugly and run with them mostly outdoors, often on hiking trails, and always without socks. I had never heard of this brand but will look to buying it again in the future.

    recommended by a friend, who owns F-Lite 195. But, could not find my size on neither nor derailled, so ordered this Road-X 255.

    I wear it for daily 5 miles walk, and it feels so good so I decided to trash my minimus and ionx from New Balance.
