When weight, protection and grip are vital the Roclite 286 really stand out. An impressive combination of features that balance performance, protection and durability.
Our lightest GORE-TEX hiking boot. Weighing just 286g, the ROCLITE 286 GTX has been revamped for 2020. Not only is the upper waterproof, but it now boasts a super-tough Cordura® mesh. The boot allows the foot to move naturally, while supporting the ankle and delivering 360-degree protection.
A lightweight hiking boot perfect for those wanting to move light and fast over all terrains - from the urban landscape to the toughest mountain trails.
Inov8's Roclite 286 GTX have managed to combine a super lightweight design without sacrificing the protection of a Gore-Tex lining and excellent grip. This new version of the boot uses a much tougher, more hard wearing Cordura fabric upper along with graphene enhanced soles. This is a top performing boot with loads of extra features that is amazingly lightweight, it's an impressive package.
The boots have a good sized, rubber toe bumper with an extended area that has an extra durable coating. For such a lightweight boot this adds protection for your toes along with making the boot last longer. As well as the usual excellent grip from Inov8 these Roclite's also have the enhanced graphene soles which further improves traction and durability.
