Boot or running shoe? Inov-8's new minimalist Roclite GTX 288 weighs just ten ounces (or about half as much as the average mid-cut hiking shoe) making it the lightest, fastest Gore-Tex "boot" on the trail. There isn't much here—just a thin, flexible sole, super-skinny laces, and a waterproof upper to help keep you from rolling an ankle—but it feels like it has an afterburner. $130; inov-8.com
