This is my 5th pair of Inov-8 shoes I've purchased on Amazon (I previously bought the 232s and 210s) and I can easily say that this model is the best by far.
If you compare pictures, the heel box seems to look the same on the 210s and the 232s versus this 235, however, this 235 shoe seems to fit and hold my heel more securely than the other 2 shoes ever did. With the 210s and the 232s, it always seemed like my heel would shift or move ever so slightly, but I don't have that feeling while wearing this 235.
There is also more room in the toe box portion in the front of the shoe, something that I've always wanted from the old shoes. I have wide feet, and the 210s and the 232s took a while to "stretch" out to fit my feet, but the 235 felt fine from day 1 of use. Although the toe box is bigger, I never get the feeling that I'm losing grip in the front, or having unnecessary movement.
Finally, the design of the grip pattern on the bottom of the shoe always gives me confidence when performing heavy olympic lifts or compound movements. The deeper groove pattern leads me to believe that they'll last longer than the other 2 shoes did.
Overall, I'm very pleased with this 235 V2 shoe, and will surely purchase another pair in the future.
My husband wears them for Kickboxing and Krav Maga and they seem to work very well for this application. In his words: "The rear of the shoe rubbed me raw the first time I wore them, but I did just hit them hard with a full exercise program without proper break-in time." He did run in the shoes (sprints and around a 1 mile run) and has had no issues to speak of. He said that the heel feels pretty hard but nothing that is a real problem. He felt that the shoe is very secure and supportive, and he thinks they would work well for cross-fit type exercise as well as in the Krav Maga and Kickboxing I mentioned.
So far so good! The dark gray and orange color is very nice looking. The 4 stars are for the comfort level. "Really good but not excellent", in my husband's words.
I've been wearing them 5x/wk for about 2 months now for all workouts and sometimes to just walk around in. Compared to my previous experience with minimalist shoes, they're not as comfortable for running/walking for more than 5 miles at a time. My feet are definitely more tired/sore the next day if I do anything longer. I can't explain why because I've done multiple 13+ mile "mudder runs" in 5-Fingers without any foot pain in the past. Maybe I'm wrong, but I equate 5-Fingers as having less support and less cushioning than the F-Lite, so I'd assume they'd be more comfortable over longer distances. I'm certain that my feet/legs are strong enough and used to minimalist shoes since I've worn some kind of minimalist shoe for the last 7yrs.
