Updates to Inov-8 Roclite 335

  • The Inov-8 Roclite 335 hiking boot caters to winter hikers who want agility, comfort, and protection on the trails. Its over-the-ankle upper carries a Primaloft insulation for heat retention.
  • Underfoot, a Powerflow midsole and Meta-Shank work together to provide cushioning and support, respectively. On the other hand, a durable G-grip outsole offers grip on most terrain types.

Size and fit

The Inov-8 Roclite 335 is a unisex winter trail boot. It comes in standard width and regular sizes. Female wearers are advised to get a whole and a half size down their usual. It fairly runs true to size.

The brand gives this footgear a fit scale of 3 which provides ample room in the forefoot for a comfy toe splaying. Additionally, the closure system helps customize the overall volume, especially at the midfoot area. 

Outsole

This hiking boot from Inov-8 carries the G-grip outsole. This graphene-enhanced component delivers traction on varying ground conditions. Its claw-shaped boots are widely spaced to prevent muck build-up and promote automatic shedding of debris. It has a flex line at the forefoot to allow the sole to bend with the user’s foot.

Midsole

Featuring the trademarked Powerflow  midsole, this winter hiking boot renders cushioning while amplifying energy return. Also, it is designed to offer optimal shock absorption for a more comfortable stride. It is paired with the three-finger Meta-Shank , an underfoot support system which grants the needed flexibility, control, and impact protection. A 6 mm footbed  sits atop the midsole to cradle the foot and promote comfort.

Upper

The Roclite 335 from Inov-8 wears a combo of synthetic and mesh  to protect hikers against outdoor obstacles. Its softshell upper features the Primaloft Gold Insulation Eco insulation which enhances comfort by keeping the foot warm and dry, especially in very low temperatures. Extra security on the trails comes from the toe guard.

This Inov-8 product employs the brand-owned Adapterweb met-cradle  (which also makes up the boot’s lacing system). This component allows the boot to adapt to the natural movement and swelling of the foot, enhancing the user’s performance. Lastly, a heel pull tab is added for easy on and off.
