JAPANESE

Considered to be one of the world’s best mountain running footwear brands, “inov-8" was established in 2003 out of the Lake District in North-West England, the epicenter of the UK trail running scene.

Trail running enthusiast Wayne Eddie founded inov-8 with the goal of creating a lightweight shoe that delivered a barefoot running experience but also provided exceptional grip. By bringing the runner closer to the terrain, the natural biomechanics of the foot and body are maintained, resulting in the shoe morphing to the movements of the foot, not the other way around.

The brand's flagship model "ROCLITE" is designed “for running adventures when the terrain is at its most variable and unpredictable.” It comes with GORE-TEX® lining, ensuring feet remain dry and comfortable in any weather conditions, and a cutting edge, lightweight, flexible sole unit which provides outstanding grip performance and high levels of cushioning and durability.

The collaborative between nonnative and inov-8 has resulted in a world first customization of the archetypical "ROCLITE" model. The standard sporty mesh upper has been overhauled with a grainy sand color suede, while a matching tonal mid-sole has also been applied. The outsole is constructed in a dark beige rubber providing a desert boot appearance. Equipped with the trusted performance of GORE-TEX® technology, the finished boot is ready for any environment from the city to the mountain summit.
