NEWS: Inov8 Roclite 390

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.

NEWS: Montrail Cirrus GTX boot

Montrail have added a new lightweight waterproof boot to their range that looks ideal for anyone wanting to lighten the load on the feet. Following on from the Montrail Stratos GTX, the new Montrail Cirrus GTX adds a little extra grunt making it ideal for those heading to wetter and rougher terrain, yet still prefering to travel light.

The Cirrus benefits from a Gore-Tex liner, like the Statos, but the upper is now more durable to increase the boots ability to resist long term wear. Underfoot the lug pattern on the outsole has been beefed up too, for better traction in the mud.

The Cirrus hits the shops in October 2007 at a price of £100. From our first look we reckon it could be an ideal boot for those wanting to travel light.

Look out for a detailed review in Trail soon.
