The INOV-8 F-LITE G 300 is meant for functional fitness style training.

If you are accustomed to running shoes, you may find the features of a good cross trainer a bit baffling.

But, we’ll explain the key differences here.

Let’s take a look at some of the features.

INOV-8 F-LITE G 300 Training Shoe - Black/Gum
The INOV-8 F-LITE G 300 is available in Black/Gum color combo – but more importantly this is a shoe made for CrossFit style workouts.

This shoe has a 6 millimeter heel to toe drop.

That’s an indicator of the amount of heel raise that the shoe has.

It’s not unusual for a running shoe to have a 10 mm heel to toe drop.

But for the CrossFit WOD we need something more versatile.

This shoe has LESS drop than a typical running shoe, and a LOT LESS drop than a “lifter” – which is what we call Oly lifting shoes.

Heel raise is good for some things – but a hindrance for others.

Since we’ll be lifting, jumping, running, jumping rope, etc. we need a moderate drop for best results.

The G 300 has laces – just like a running shoe – but also has a TPU cage that helps make for a super-secure fit and feel.

Some of these moves – like the Olympic lifts – are very explosive movements.

The snatch and clean in Oly lifting require some explosiveness – and if our shoes are shifting around on our feet that’s a waste of energy – and a possible source of injury.

The TPU cage is integrated with the laces to ensure the fit is plenty secure.

TPU is a type of plastic – it’s slick, flexible, but extremely tough.

Here’s another advanced feature of this shoe – it incorporates graphene in the sole. Graphene is thin, flexible, and tough.

There’s also an internal stabilizer in the midsole of the shoe.

That helps for heavy weightlifting.

The G 300 comes in Men’s and Women’s versions – but there doesn’t seem to be much of a difference (we’ll update this if we find out more.)

Check back soon, and we’ll have hands on coverage (and a full review) of this great new training shoe.
