Agile, lightweight, built from the ground up. The F-LITE 260 KNIT is here.
The iconic F-LITE shoes are known for their ability to handle any workout thrown at them, and the F-LITE 260 KNIT is no exception. Built from the ground up, the F-LITE 260 KNIT is one of our first-ever training shoes to pioneer STICKYGRIP technology on the outsole. Utilizing a next-generation rubber compound that has been intensely tested in the box, gym and laboratory, the outsole delivers improved, confidence-enhancing underfoot grip, no matter how hardcore the workout.
The F-LITE 260 KNIT also boasts a POWERFLOW midsole for improved underfoot cushioning when working out and running too. This not only acts to soften your landing but retains vital energy that it then uses to help spring you forward into the your next running stride.
On top of all that comes a new highly-breathable knitted upper fabric, which gives a natural, ergonomic fit. This allows the shoe to adapt with the movements the foot during workouts. When inov-8 first launched 15 years ago this was in the brand DNA and it remains so today – it’s all about the foot controlling the shoe and not the shoe controlling the foot.
From lifting to box jumps, sprints and rope work, this shoe can handle it all, while giving you the explosive power, speed, agility and unrivalled grip to defy gravity.

For those who would prefer a non-knit version of the F-LITE 260, we’ve got you covered there too. Like the F-LITE 260 KNIT, these models also include STICKYGRIP rubber on the outsole and a POWERFLOW midsole for improved underfoot cushioning. The difference is in shoe’s upper, with the non-knit version featuring more traditional lightweight, breathable materials.
