inov-8 Shoe Size Guide

Shoe Fit Scale

Fits Narrow12345Fits Wide

inov-8 have graded the fit of all their shoes from 1 to 5 to make it easy for you to find the perfect fitting shoe. All inov-8 shoes are designed with Met-Cradle technology to lock down the mid-foot for a stable hold. Where they differ is in the toe box. Grade 1 represents the closest, most precise fit. Grade 5 has the widest fitting toe box.

inov-8 has meticulously studied the foot and its function during the gait cycle and also the interaction between the foot and the terrain. They have used this knowledge to develop their fitting scale. For technical footwear a good fit is essential to enhance your performance.

The lower the number on the scale, the narrower the fit, which ensures minimal internal movement of the foot when running fast on technical terrain. Shoes with the higher numbers on the scale will suit athletes with a wider foot and those wanting that extra comfort in the toe box. This wider toe box allows the toes to splay for increased stability when lifting heavy weights. It’s also perfect for longer runs and races when toes begin to swell.

As a rough guide, Grade 1 represents an industry B fit, while Grade 5 equates to a 2E fit in the forefoot.

Phenomenal grip

New industry-leading STICKY GRIP rubber delivers better traction than its predecessor over both wet and dry underfoot conditions.

Renowned grip

Iconic 8mm studs not only claw through soft terrain but also hold firm on harder ground.

Increased protection

Second-generation META-PLATE is a rock plate that protects the underfoot from sharp rocks.

More comfort

Unique Powerflow+ midsole technology delivers 10% better shock absorption and 25% better energy return than standard midsoles.

Go light and fast

The upper materials, protective rand and gusseted tongue are all non-water-absorbing, meaning the shoe remains at its lightweight best.

Increased protection

On-the-shoe gaiter hooks offer a more secure attachment system that allows you to attach a ALL TERRAIN GAITER to the shoe, while the Met-Cradle delivers a secure hold.
