This is probably the most eagerly awaited peice of footwear this Autumn. The Inov8 Roclite 390 weighs in at just 390g for a half pair size 8 and yet it retains ankle protection, a great grip and a protection from the wet.
Following on from the success of their running shoes, Inov8 have added the Roclite 390. This waterproof and breathable boot was originally designed for ultralight paragliding. However, the Roclite 390 it is creating a buzz around the walking world, as it is also ideal for lightweight hill walking. The higher ankle cuff promises to keep mud and water out of the boot as well as protecting the ankle from scrapes and adding a notch of support.
The boots hit the stores in August 2007 and come in sizes from 3-14UK.
Trail are promised the first boots in the UK, so look out for a review.
