Inov-8 Roclite 390 GTX

A lightweight 3-season boot weighing 912g (pair, size 11). Gore-Tex XCR waterproof lining. The boot’s durability is boosted around the toe by a rubber rand. Well-cushioned and extremely grippy studded sole. It’s perfect if you want a super-light boot for the fells. However, it’s not as supportive as others on the market; best kept to grass and easier terrain; not as durable as heavier leather boots.

 

 

Verdict: If you rank minimal weight above all this is the boot for you, but it has its drawbacks.
