Review: Inov-8 Roclite 390GTX #3 (Final)

This is the third and final review of my Inov-8 Roclite 390 GTX boots – I know its the final review because they’ve just about fallen to pieces – they are completely unusable as walking boots. You can read the first two reviews here: Review One and here: Review Two....

Review: Inov-8 Roclite 390GTX #2

This is a follow-up report of the Inov-8 boots I’ve been testing for Fitness Footwear. The Roclite 390GTX is a waterproof mid cut boot from the people who brought us the ultimate in lightweight footwear, Inov-8. If last weeks walk over the gritstone of Kinder was no test at all...

Review: Inov-8 Roclite 390GTX

I’ve been dying to try a pair of these, ever since they were released a year or two ago, but until the kind folk at FitnessFootwear offered to let me have a pair to test I’d not really had the opportunity. Boots aren’t normally something you can try on whim...

PW2010 – Planning Update #5

I have most of my accommodation booked now, all but four locations in fact. These have been emailed but have not yet responded, so I’ll give them a couple of days more and then phone them. I would hate to miss out on a place now that so many others...

Roclite 315 – Trail report

I thought it may be worth just adding a short trail report of these shoes now that I’ve managed to wear them for a long weekend. There’s a report earlier in the diary following the walk I did up Bow Fell using them (see here), but this time I was...

Inov-8 Roclite 315

I did my first walk yesterday in my new Inov-8 shoes; the Roclite 315. Tex and I took a walk through Langdale, along the Cumbria Way, up Rossett Gill to Esk Pike and Bow Fell, along The Band and back. Anyone who knows this area will be aware of how...

Going light…again

It’s always dangerous when I don’t go out walking at the weekend, because I normally take the opportunity to walk around the local gear shops and that inevitably leads to me spending money! This time it was a replacement for my Inov-8 Terrocs, which fell apart during my West Highland...
