kirstpowrote a review of Inov 8 Roclite 286 GTX Hiking Boot - Men's on October 28, 2015
Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
Fit: True to size
I didn't buy this at backcountry but this shoe is bomb. It is a minimalistic, waterproof boot that you can run in easily. I opt to put superfeet in the shoes because it doesn't offer any support while walking on rocks and junk, but it's perfect after that. This shoe is for people who have good walking and running mechanics in general that don't have feet or other leg issues. Go see your physical therapist if you do. I've used it for climbing approaches, multi day backpacking in the rain, day hikes. It's so light and allows your foot and ankles to move. The soles provide excellent grip on surfaces. It holds up well in the elements and has not worn down on me yet. I've had it for 3 years now.
