This is the lightest weight Gore-Tex boot anywhere on the market. This updated version has upgraded the design with the super durable graphene enhanced grip and a tougher Cordura mesh upper.

Inov8 says:

The world’s lightest GORE-TEX hiking boot is back in the inov-8 range – and this time it comes armed with a graphene-enhanced outsole, delivering the world’s toughest grip. Not only is the rubber outsole more durable, so is the waterproof upper, which now boasts a super-tough Cordura® mesh. Perfect for hikers and adventurers wanting to move light and fast over all terrains, the ROCLITE G 286 GTX allows the foot to move naturally, while supporting the ankle and delivering 360-degree protection. Weighing just 286g, this classic inov-8 boot has been revamped for 2020 with pioneering technologies. 

Inov8's Roclite G 286 GTX has been updated and upgraded. This version sees the boot remain as the lightest weight Gore-Tex boot in the world so it is still perfect for anyone looking to go fast and light. In addition to the Gore waterproof lining this version comes with Inov8's G Grip graphene enhanced sole for greater durability and grip. The upper mesh material has also been upgraded to Cordura in order to provide a much more hard-wearing boot all round.

The majority of the boots design has stayed true to the original lightweight version with a high, padded ankle providing some support, an extended toe bumper for abrasion resistance and a good lacing system. They are surprisingly tough boots for the weight and are ideally suited to fast paced activities on a range of terrain. The simple, classic black style is good for versatility too.

Don’t believe the hype ( bb)

Yes it’s more rugged and tough than the 345 range, but it lacks any of the comfort and fit. The Gore-Tex membrane has failed and is of poor quality, the fabric used to get a robust and lightweight boot just doesn’t lend its self to feeling like it fits the foot it just makes it kind of baggy and plastic feeling. The platform is good giving excellent grip, shame the upper is like this.
