Fastpacking just got even faster with the help of the Inov 8 Men's RocLite 320 GTX Hiking Boot. Whether you're hiking or trail running, the lightweight, responsive performance of this boot keeps you moving over varied terrain at a quick clip and with waterproof, breathable protection.
The Gore-Tex technology strikes an ideal balance of natural movement and flexibility with climate comfort and defense against rain, sleet, and snow, while the X-Protec upper adds durability and protects against debris on the trail. This upper also utilizes a hybrid tongue to further prevent any debris from getting your shoe and ruining your day. A Powerflow midsole brings your step impressive energy return and shock-absorption, which is bolstered by the Meta-Plate shank, while an AdapterWeb met-cradle is built around the natural anatomy of your foot and works with the movement and swelling of your foot in motion. Rounding things out, the next-gen RocLite outsole uses three sticky rubber compounds to increase grip and durability on chewed-up trails.

- Q & A
The shoe for mixed conditions
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
- Fit: True to size
- Size Bought: 11
- Height: 6'2"
- Weight: 205lbs
The shoe by itself is great for kicking around town. The high back keeps out slush and when paired with a gaiter can handle any amount of snow. Hiked theses in mud and snow, traction is great. I got these for the flexibility and the gtx, theyâre my goto for temps down to 10 degrees. The toe box is narrow, because of the synthetic material they dont stretch over time. Durability seems great, taking them on rocky trails and bush wacking hasnât beat them up. Iâve worn them daily for the past 4 month and theyâre not showing signs of slowing.
Narrow through the forefoot
- Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
- Fit: True to size
- Size Bought: 10.5
- Height: 6'1"
- Weight: 175lbs
Purchased and returned because they are narrow through the forefoot. Overall I'd say they are "true to size", just not for wide(r) feet.
Initial impression from a few minutes:
- very light weight
- very soft and flexible
- really grippy sole
