Comments about Roclite 315 Trail Running Shoe - Men's:
It's too early to give 5 stars but I would give 4.5 if I could.
I bought these shoes to use for backpacking in the Oregon Cascades and California Sierra Nevada. I've used them on a couple day hikes in the Cascades and on a 3 day backpacking trip in the high Sierra (45 mi, 4000' up, 4000' feet down).
As usual for inov 8 the shoes were very comfortable right out of the box. They are very lightweight, have good cushioning, and overall just felt great right out of the box.
I always have issues with blisters with extended hiking in new shoes, and these were no exception. The only shoes I have never had blisters with straight out of the box were the Solomon xa pro 3d low's and an older pair of inov8 roclites so I was hoping these would not give me problems, but I ended up with big blisters on the back of my heals when I wore these shoes for the dayhikes and then again on the backpacking trip. I didn't get blisters anywhere else - notably my pinky toes where I usually get blisters because I have wide feet. The toe box on these feels very roomy, perfect for my wide feet. My feet are size 11.5, and I bought size 12 to accomodate swelling and double socks, and they feel just a very slight tad on the big side. In other words, they run slightly big, like almost a 1/2 size big. If you are only planning on wearing these with thin socks, I'd say size down 1/2 size. If your feet don't swell on extending backpacking trips, or if you don't wear thick socks, then I'd pick your true size. I went 1/2 size up because my feet tend to swell and I wear double socks, and I'm happy with this size.
The best part of these shoes (and my previous roclites) is the incredibly grippy soles. They stick to Sierra granite so well I have to remind myself to be careful. They also provide a good amount of strike cushioning. I tend to get very sore bottom feet from backpacking in the high sierra, but with these on my recent trip I was surprised at how well my feet handled the 15 mi days with up to 4000 ft of descent carrying a 30-40 lb pack. I am 6'1" and 190 lbs. My previous roclites got about 300 miles in the high Sierra before I lost a lug, and then I lost two more quickly after that. This pair only has about 45 mi on them but so far the lugs are all intact. In general, it is too early for me to comment on the durability of these shoes. Also, they breathe well, my feet never felt clammy.
Overall, I would highly recommend these shoes for backpacking, especially if you have a wide toe box.
