So Are These Really That Good?

If you take a look on my list of the best CrossFit shoes, you are going to see Inov-8 on the list. One of the reason I recommend them, is that the company has developed a very good reputation for making high quality minimalist footwear that are capable of delivering the performance that is needed for high impact activities.

They often say that word of mouth is the best promotion a company can get. If you go to any gym where they are doing CrossFit and ask what sneakers they recommend, you are going to find Inov8 on the list. Do a search on the web and the reviews are going to be glowing. Everything leans in the direction of awesome footwear, so you should seriously consider them.

Should you pit a pair from this company against the likes of New Balance, Nike, Adidas or Vibram, you are going to footwear that will outperform some of those established brands.  With something that works so well, it makes sense to give it a try.
