There are better lifting shoes and there are better running shoes, but there are very few shoes that have combined the two as well into a training shoe like the All-Train 215’s.
Bottom line: these shoes are solid, solid training shoes.
I don’t believe that this shoe was designed for CrossFit, but it certainly kept up with all the CrossFit shoes I’ve worn.
If you’re a fitness class addict or love variety in your training but don’t want dedicated pairs of trainers for each workout style, then the inov8 All Train 215 shoes are a really good choice as an all-rounder that will support a little bit of everything.
This Inov-8 trainer is marketed as a shoe for the toughest and most intensive workouts. It is engineered to deliver exceptional stability, comfort, lateral support, and power. Its lightweight construction of 215 grams per shoe aims to help athletes move faster and more naturally as they tackle various workouts.
The outsole unit of the shoe makes use of the All-Train Traction technology in the form of triangular claw-shaped cleats. The geometric design of these cleats enhances grip and traction regardless of the direction you choose to move in.
The foot is ensured to get a secure placement during agility workouts by virtue of the Dual-C sticky rubber compounds, which are strategically placed in high impact areas.
The Inov-8 All Train 215 utilizes the Meta-Flex technology, which is a groove designed into the outsole for better flexibility as well as more efficient, natural, explosive movement.
The 8-mm heel-to-toe drop of the shoe provides comfort for the Achilles tendon during intense workouts and running. It also contributes to a more upright squat during weightlifting exercises.
The All Train 215 makes use of the Fusion Midsole to provide a combination of cushioning and power return. It is made of a lightweight Injection Molded EVA and is especially helpful for plyometric exercises and running.
The new AdapterFit Met-cradle, coupled with the soft, elastic, mesh liner, allows for a lockdown of the midfoot. Such upper construction adapts to the natural movement of the foot and supports it during lateral movement.
The Inov-8 All Train 215 also employs a lightweight external Heel Lock TPU counter. It serves to further stabilize the foot throughout intensive workouts.
