The Roclite 315 is designed for variable terrain types and is ideal for those looking for comfort and protection from their running shoe. The upper of the Roclite 315 is X-Protec which is highly durable and provides excellent protection. It features a reinforced hybrid tongue designed to keep debris out of the shoe as well as gaiter hooks for the All Terrain Gaiter.
The sole features 3 different types of rubber giving the most durable performance on the heel, a medium rubber throughout the centre of the shoe gives excellent traction whilst the softest rubber is used on the edges to provide grip. The sole also features claw shaped cleats shaped to release debris and provide even grip on unpredictable terrain. The Powerflow midsole provides excellent shock absorption and energy return whilst the external heel cage is designed to aid foot stability for a better gait, even when tired.

Customer Reviews of Inov8 Roclite 315
Well made lightweight shoe. Reasonable grip out of the box. Better now the sole is scuffed. This will be my main mud muncher across Baildon Moor this winter.
Wow what a great pair of running shoes yes indeed I normally run in ASICS but these are totally in a different league the rock plate makes such a difference and the grip is just brilliant. I would recommend Inov8 I'm not easily pushed to changing manufacturers you won't regret the move to these and Inov8.
The INOV-8 Roclite 315 is new in the Roclite family, how does it compare to my beloved 305s?
I tested the new INOV-8 Roclite 315 these last six weeks, accumulating in total 360 kilometres in very diverse circumstances including snow / sleet and rain, thick / thin / sticky and deep mud, forest / grass / road / gravel and stony paths, short / long and multi-day trails.
Summary: Worthy new member of the Roclite family, keeping up the high standards of this sturdy designed, multi-terrain trailrunning shoe with a very comfortable wrap around your foot feeling.
Would I change them now this instance for my favourite Roclite 305s, not really. But I would buy them as replacement when my 305s are worn out for the additional protection.
Massively impressed with this shoe.Been using them happily for a year or so, but yesterday was the Tough Guy challenge. Lots of other competitors slipping and sliding in appalling conditions, but I didn't slip once.I had real confidence in them. I am so pleased with these shoes!!
This is a very good shoe indeed1 I own/have owned several pairs of Innov8 and now would not consider any other brand of off road shoe. Their range has something for every type of terrain.
The 315 has a deep almost studded sole which I find particularly useful at this time of year (winter) as there is plenty of bite. Consequently its very easy to stay balanced on greasy terrain (wet grass and/or mud)and this helps you maintain an efficient run cycle. There is also enough cushioning in the sole for brief sections of road so this shoe should suit for most types of trail races.
Flatter soles might suit the warmer months of the year but for fell or winter trail use these are the business!
Bought this shoe to run along the coastal paths. Found them to be much lighter compared to my running shoes and very comfortable.I didn't have to wear them in at all.The customer service advice was really good as well when I said I didn't know what size shoe to purchase for this make, they suggested I bought 2 pairs and returned the non-fitting one using their customary pre-printed returns label that come with the shoe (postage was included as well).
Fantastic! They fit me perfectly, and I must be on my 4th pair of them by now.
When I first tried them, they were a huge change from the big sturdy, padded 'off road' shoe I'd used before, but it only took a few runs to appreciate the amazing feedback you get through your feet, which makes it so much easier to be sure-footed on tricky terrain. Lightweight, and give all-round good grip on most trails - rocks, grass, mud, snow, etc.
