Substantial and fairly deep lugs offer grip for both drive and camber, side-to-side, control.
The Inov-8 Roclite 282 GTX are probably the best shoes which you can get if you look for the lightest weight and a good sole.

The shoe uses the EVA foam that delivers moderate amount of cushioning and flexibility. It works perfectly with the brand’s 3-Arrow Shoc-Zone cushioning system that deliver average amount of underfoot cushioning. It also uses the Fascia Band from the heel to the metatarsal region. It acts as the rigid lever arm for efficient ride. Lastly, the Meta Shank is designed to provide flexible underfoot impact protection.
