The world’s toughest shoe for the world’s toughest workouts. Our new F-LITE G 290 is the first-ever training shoe to utilise graphene – the strongest material on the planet. Collaborating with graphene experts at The University of Manchester, we have infused the wonder-material into the rubber of our revolutionary G-SERIES shoes, making the outsoles 50% stronger, 50% more elastic and 50% harder wearing.

The G-SERIES was launched at an international press event earlier in 2018.

Revolutionary graphene-enhanced rubber delivers the world’s toughest grip in the gym, while new midsole technologies and upper materials raise the bar in terms of training shoe comfort and durability. The first training shoe from the series (the F-LITE G 290) is available to buy now.

Will Kane – UK inov-8 Training athlete and one of the UK’s best CrossFit athletes (21st Europe, 7th UK – Open Ranking):

“Defo my favourite shoe is the G-SERIES black and green. Stable but light – a well-balanced shoe. Always loved inov-8’s style, with lots of variation on styles and can be worn for pure fashion. Different to the mainstream trainer!”
