The Inov-8 Roclite 312 GTX is a neutral trail running shoe designed for racing, daily training and high mileage. GTX Mesh upper with GORE-TEX® material is waterproof, yet moderately breathable. Met-Cradle synthetic webbing supports the forefoot and provides a secure foot hold. TPU lacing support attaches the lacing to polymer supports for an even cradle around the foot. Endurance Last offers comfort over long distances. Versatile moderate EVA midsole. Fascia Band resists the elongation of the medial arch and propels the runner by acting as a rigid lever arm. Meta-Shank provides flexible underfoot impact protection. Roclite outsole design is a good performer over hard-packed and loose trail surfaces and with its good flexibility, the runner will move along the trails with ease. Sticky rubber optimizes grip in wet conditions. Full-length lugged pattern is designed for both compact surfaces as well as grass, mud, and snow. Meta-Flex is intended to provide a natural forefoot flex.
