On a beautiful day in October 2021, Inov-8 announced its launch of the world's first-ever graphene-covered hiking boots. It goes by the name ROCFLY™ G 390. This Lake District brand located in Staveley seems to be devoted to mind-blowing innovations.

Since its launch, several hikers have tested the boot, notable among them is James Forrest, the Inov-8 brand ambassador. This 37-year-old renowned hiker set a whole new record with a one-person and self-sponsored hike of the beautiful British National Three Peaks with this boot.

In a journey of 16 days, 15 hours, and 39 minutes, he went the length and breadth of Snowdon, Scafell Pike, and Ben Nevis - a journey that should be anywhere around 500 miles.

After his history-breaking hike, Forrest had a lot of good things to say about the novel boots. According to him, the boot's foam is very springy and cushioned, and it seemed to propel the wearer forward. He said it comes with great rebound and energy return. He attested to its rubber being very grippy and that the upper part produces superb comfort. 

Because the boots are not waterproof, he said that they get dry very easily and breathe very well; the way he likes them to be made.

Since its launch of the fast-gripping wonder-rubber, sales of their hiking boots have dramatically increased especially in the previous 3 years.

At the start of this year, Inov-8 announced the launch of G-FLY™ Graphene foam. This innovation delivers about 25% higher energy returns. It then coupled this innovation with the TRAILFLY™ ULTRA G 300 MAX running gear. Due to the instant success of the running shoe, Inov-8 produced a hiking boots counterpart with awesome technology.

Inov-8 founder and CEO had a lot to say about the incredible fits his company has accomplished and continues to accomplish. His company was founded in 2003 and now remains the only company in the world to utilize graphene technology in hiking shoes and sports footwear. According to him, his company strives to be unique from other companies and it is devoted to leading the way for others to follow by way of innovation.

He confirmed that The ROCFLY™ G 390 is the company's latest effort in providing pacesetting technology in the world of boots manufacturing. His boots, according to him, will make hikers feel very comfortable even for a very long hiking trail and anchor their feet for the time in use.  

He went further to say that he is super proud of the incredible effort his team had put in to ensure the realization of the boot. According to him, they worked painstakingly hard with the University of Manchester and Doug Sheridan, the foremost authority when it comes to the footwear industry in the manufacturing of the boot. He concluded by saying they plan to harness their newfound relationship with the expert to the utmost height.

We believe customers are going to be impressed with the ROCFLY™ G 390, hiking boots laced with graphene. What a time to be alive!
