2018 Buyer's Guide

Inov-8 Roclite 315

The Draw: Stout with Tremendous Bite

Confidently take on any terrain with the help of the Roclite 315’s rugged, armor-like upper, highly protective, shanked midsole, and cleat-like 6mm lugs on the versatile outsole. The outsole features hard rubber on the heel, medium in the middle, and softer on the front edges for more grip. That much protection comes with a level of rigidity—but not so much to interrupt a fluid, natural gait cycle. The shoe felt centered, especially with the reinforced tongue and secure lacing system. Bonus: The Roclite 315 also features built-in gaiter hooks.

8mm drop; M 10.7 oz (no women’s-specific model)
