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.
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.
