Inov-8 Roclite Pro G 400 GTX: The lowdown

Need-to-know facts:

  • Its ceramic-coated fabric upper gives the boot enhanced protection against sharp rocks (think talus at the base of a mountain).
  • Similar to approach shoes, the Roclite Pro G 400 GTX has a rubberized toe rand, allowing wearers to negotiate light elevations with bolder forefoot maneuvers.
  • The hiker’s bootie comes with a Gore-Tex liner, which, along with the footgear’s mid-cut clearance, delivers water protection up to the height of the collar.
  • Its aggressive heel cup and reinforced ankle cuff provide double the rearfoot support, ideal for going down tricky descents.
  • With its rubber outsole having water-dispersing grooves, adventurers can cross shallow streams and trample on puddles with freer mobility.

A few considerations:

  • Just like most Gore-Tex hiking boots, this Inov-8 offering might not be breathable enough in temperatures higher than 27 degrees Celsius (roughly 80 degrees Fahrenheit).
  • As it comes without a heel pull tab, slipping into the Roclite Pro G 400 GTX might be challenging for some.

Who is the Inov-8 Roclite Pro G 400 GTX for?

  • As a lightweight hiking boot, it is designed primarily for speed hikers needing extra ankle support.
  • The boot in question, with its plated yet flexible sole, is for wearers who frequent rocky and pebbly routes.
  • Its spacious toe box makes it ideal for hikers with a broad forefoot.
