If you haven't heard of GORE-TEX by now, you've probably been living under a rock. And that would make sense, because living under a rock is probably the only place where you wouldn't need the durable waterproof and windproof protection that GORE-TEX fabrics offer. So when you're ready to venture out from under your rock, arm yourself with the comfortable protection of GORE-TEX.

La Sportiva footwear is built and offered on European half sizes, which are smaller increments than US half sizes. This gives them four extra sizes per size run, and ultimately gives you a better fit.

Please review La Sportiva's size conversion chart above to help determine your ideal size. Below you will find additional information about how to fit and break in the different styles of La Sportiva footwear, which will also help guide you to the correct size.

• As a general rule soft shoes like climbing shoes require a tighter fit, or about two to three sizes smaller than your street shoe size.
• La Sportiva recommends you fit your trad climbing shoes one to two sizes under your street shoe size.
• La Sportiva offers a lot of lasts, and each offers a different fit and feel. Remember to factor in potential stretching.
• Unlined slip-lasted shoes tend to stretch a bit more than lined shoes, or about one full size.
• Lined shoes stretch about a half size.

• PERFORMANCE FIT - offers a high performance fit and a downturned last.
• TECH FIT - a more technical fit and a last with neutral profile.
• COMFORT FIT - a comfortable fit and a last with more volume and a neutral profile.

• Find your US Size in the guide above, then find the Euro Size conversion and add one half size.
• The ideal size holds your toes ever so slightly away from the front of the boot while the lacing system is snug across the top of your arch.
• If you can try to boots on beforehand, make sure you wear the same size and weight socks you would typically wear with the boots, and any orthotics or custom footbeds you use.
• It is ideal to fit boots later in the day since feet are prone to swell slightly as a day progresses.
• Wear your boots indoors only until you are confident about the fit.
• Your foot should feel snug (not tight) from the arch back into the heel pocket with just a minimum lift as you walk. If your heel lifts make sure the lacing is snug and not too loose.
• Your toes should NOT touch the front of the boot, but when you kick the toe into the floor, you should know where the front of the boot is. You want just enough room to wiggle your toes.
• If your toes or sides of your feet feel squished, most likely the width is too narrow and the boot will not work for you.
• If your toes touch the front of the boot, most likely it is too short and you need the next half size up.
• Make sure to keep all original packaging that came with your boots until you are sure that you are happy with your purchase.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best boot I have ever owned I bought this here on moosejaw and was nervous about buying a shoe I have never tried on. After reading such great reviews I did it. I wore them all over the Wasatch front and look for excuses to wear them to work. they look brand new after a season of non stop weekends plunging into dirt snow green apples and sticky movie theatre floors. The only place I haven't taken them is the hot tup and its because I like to keep my feet moisturized and these boots are gore tex. Never needed a break in. Mine were the only warm feet on a -5 degree snowshoeing trip. We even revives a hypothermic badger and cooked with it the other boot. Yes, they are that good.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Durable and reliable I've had these boots for a while now and been out in all sorts of weather and terrains on both long and short hikes. They are listed as mountaineering boots but doubles well as heavy duty hiking boots. They are really warm and fits really well. I never got a single blister from these bad boys. They are 100% water proof. They are very stiff, so if you plan on using them for regular hiking like I do you have to adjust your stride a bit, but it's no problem once you get used to them. I bought them for a Rainier climb, but they do really well in all sorts of terrain except pavement, so don't wear them out on a Saturday night.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Lhotse is a very solid and reliable ice climbing and winter mountaineering boot. I go ice climbing in Colorado every weekend and on climbing expeditions in the Cordillera Blanca and Cordillera Huayhuash of Peru with these boots. They have withstood very cold temperatures, glaciers, hard ice, and nasty scree and moraine slopes. After all this when they're cleaned off, they're still like new. The only downside, which is every mountaineers constant struggle, to find lighter equipment, and since this boot has the steel shank (very beneficial for ice climbing) it is heavier than the average boot.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Quarry boots! ;) Extra durable boots (extremely rugged, thanks for inner steel shank). Very comfortable. Heel stabilizer is really good as for protection, and so on for heel stabilization when you climb and walk. But the ruber rand must be higher, and without gaps around the boot, for more protection against elements. Gtx and duratherm work properly, no question about it. And at the end, definitely this is big bro of the small, good and old Makalu! =) Big 4 with plus!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Oh my god... I bought these for a trip to Mt. Whitney, took them out of the box and headed out to the mountain. Felt a little uncomfortable at first, from the ankle up and was worried I should've broken them in before actually hitting the trail. 3 days later, after walking on through snow, water and dirt these babies didn't leave a single blister right out of the box. And the best part, kept my feet warm and dry after the beating they took. Awesome!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Bomb Proof Boots I bought these boots years ago and they have taken absolutly everything I have throwen at them. I am very impressed with these La Spotivea boots and the way they have held up to years of abuse... Hands down I will ware these boots till I die. Great for long backcountry treks but bilt to last. Built for long adverse weather and terrain abuse. Did I say Bomb proof? ,, Have a great day, and love the Madness!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from They do the job I picked these up to begin my training program for the Himalayas. I brought them with to New Zealand to climb both single and double cone in the Remarkables outside Queenstown. The traverse was amazing with perfect weather and a great partner. The boots met the mark with crampons on snow and on steep rock. If you make it to the area I highly recommend the climb and the boots for the big cold stuff.,,,,

Rated 5 out of 5 by from jos papineau ,,,,I have been pondering about a great all around winter boot for ice climbing, snoeshoeing, generalized climbing you name it. I found this boot to be tremendous in all regards. It is light, rugged, great traction, superb craftmanship and teriffic to climb in. They are equally comfortable with crampons on climbing a waterfall or just hiking up the trail. They work not only well but incredible!,,,,
