Inov-8 Roclite 390 GTX
Based on Inov-8's classic Roclite outsole, this mid-height, GoreTex-lined fell boot delivers superb levels of comfort and performance.
Weighing less than 800 grams per pair (size 43), the Roclite 390 GTX offers a focused super-light alternative to a traditional walking boot. In use the semi-studded grip pattern gives a surefooted-ness that a standard Vibram sole struggles to deliver, even when descending at speed (running downhill!) in the wet. There is plenty of EVA Cushioning in the mid-sole, and the upper is made from a durable mesh with full toe randing and built in ankle protection. This combined with the tried an tested GoreTex waterproof/breathable lining and you have a complete lightweight package.
In a nutshell this is a fantastic opportunity to purchase a boot that makes for a great piece of multipurpose winter footwear for staying dry and upright, and when pushed can deliver some serious hill performance.
