  • The Inov-8 Fastlift 370 BOA was designed for those CrossFit WODs which incorporate plenty of weightlifting exercises. It features the innovative BOA system instead of the conventional lace-up closure to offer a more precise fit with no pressure points.
  • The upper design of the Fastlift 370 BOA is quite understated compared to its predecessor. The metatarsal strap on the top now features a “RISE TO IT” motto printed on it.
  • The midsole still utilizes the POWER-TRUSS technology in the form of 8 TPU pillars for enhanced durability. The heel-to-toe drop is 16.5 mm. Such a stack height accommodates a more upright position during squats. At the same time, heel stability is ensured by the external TPU heel cup, which holds the rear portion of the foot firmly in place. This platform is the same one as found in the popular Fastlift 325 model.
  • The shoe retains the signature FASTLIFT outsole. It is a flat rubber sole that’s designed for maximal grip.

The Inov-8 Fastlift 370 BOA is available in both men’s and women’s sizes. It follows the Inov-8’s Standard Fit width, which offers a wider toe box for a natural toe splay. The width profiles are D - Medium for men and B - Medium for women.

The outsole unit of the Fastlift 370 BOA features the FASTLIFT, which is a flat, rubber sole with a 0-mm lug depth. It is designed to provide an optimal grip on various indoor surfaces.

The STICKY RUBBER is employed to enhance grip on wood, rubber and concrete platforms. It features a checker plate design as well as the suction cups and in the heel area to prevent slipping.

The forefoot section of the outsole makes use of the META-FLEX technology in the form of shallow grooves to offer more flexibility for the wearer.

The midsole utilizes the POWER-TRUSS technology, which comprises of 8 strategically-placed, hollow TPU pillars. TPU is a strong, high-density plastic material. It makes up a sturdy heel structure, which is able to deliver a stable maximum load bearing of over 1200 lbs (544 kg). It is how much weight the shoe can receive before starting to buckle.

The heel-to-toe offset of the Inov-8 Fastlift 370 BOA is 16.5 mm. Such an elevated heel helps athletes to maintain balance and a more upright position during heavy squats.

There is also a removable 3 mm foam footbed, which offers light underfoot comfort during the workout.

The most notable feature of the upper unit is the BOA closure system, which comprises of a low-friction cable locked-up by two regulation knobs. The knob on the tongue is used to tighten the ankle while the one on the side is attached to the metatarsal strap and tightens the midfoot. The regulation is done by twisting each knob. Such a system helps to equalize tension across the instep and to deliver a customized fit. It is also much faster to tighten and loosen than the regular lacing system. This technology is also used in the Adidas Leistung 16 II lifter.

The materials used for the upper are a combination of mesh and synthetic. It delivers a light, flexible and breathable support to the foot. At the same time, a fabric lining offers a soft and breathable in-shoe feel.

The Inov-8 Fastlift 370 BOA employs the EHC (external heel cage) made of a strong but lightweight TPU material to provide better stability for the heel. It is also connected to the POWER TRUSS wedge for maximized sturdiness.
