Inov-8's Roclite 325 is an ultralight hiking boot offering good support and protection, available in a waterproof Gore-tex version (Roclite 325 GTX) or a super breathable non-Goretex version (Roclite 325).
Hike and run fast with confidence with this lightweight men's boot. The ROCLITE 325 delivers the ultimate in comfort, protection and increased ankle support when running over multi terrains. Perfect for fast-packing a cross between backpacking and mountain running - where users can utilize the ROCLITE 325's versatile grip.
This version of Inov8's Roclite 325 come in both Gore (waterproof) and Non-Gore (not waterproof) versions. These are non-Gore and have a distinct advantage in warmer weather of being highly breathable. Often people simply put up with hot, sweaty feet when hiking but with these it's a thing of the past. Yes, they let water in if it rains or you are going over wet ground but pair them with a high wicking, quick drying sock and they work brilliantly.
The toe section offers more protection than trainers by using a stiffer bumper and the sole has a slightly thicker and more protective unit than their other running shoes. The padding around the ankle helps when covering technical terrain too. It offers more protection with little additional weight and at just over 300 grams per boot and is perfect for a 3 season boot that allows you to move fast and light.
