Who should buy the Inov-8 Fastlift 360

Inov-8 describes the Fastlift 360 as the ultimate hybrid lifter, thanks to its firm heel section and flexible forefoot. That fusion makes it a weightlifting trainer that can also be worn for other fitness purposes. It would benefit you if:

  • You work out mostly in the gym and would like a trainer grippy enough on gym surfaces. 
  • You are looking for a shoe that could keep your feet dry and cool during intense workouts. 
  • A shoe with military vibes appeals to your fashion taste.

Traction for gym floors

The Inov-8 Rubber compound covers the bottom of the Fastlift 360. Its sticky nature helps to prevent slippage throughout a workout session. Round indentures on the heel also contribute to the grip by acting like suction cups.

Forefoot flexibility

A wide Meta-Flex groove makes the shoe bend along with the foot. It works together with the pliable upper construction to allow for freedom of movement.

Ultra-supportive lifting base

A stable footing is the core feature of any weightlifting shoe. Inov-8 Fastlift 360 takes care of that by introducing a combination of Power-Truss and External Heel Cage (EHC).

Power-Truss comprises of multiple pillars which are made of TPU (thermoplastic polyurethane). This heavy-duty material is often used by lifters to make non-compressible soles. It doesn’t let the shoe squish or bend when you grab a heavy load.

EHC is a reinforced version of a heel counter. It functions like a robust exoskeleton which stabilizes the rearfoot and doesn’t let it wobble under several hundred pounds.

Light and breathable support

The Fastlift 360 makes use of a segmented design which fuses breathable mesh inserts and sturdier overlays. Although it may seem stiff from the outside, it easily moves along with the foot when worn.
