The La Sportiva Baruntse Boot is a double boot for hitting up the cold mountain world of 6000 to 7000 meter peaks. At first glance you may think clunky, but when you're headed into the extreme, big boots are definitely what you'll need to keep toes and feet functioning properly. The inner boot is all about warmth, with speed lacing to make getting everything on and off all the easier. The outer boot is insulated as well, but more about keeping the wet out, from ice to snow to water. It'll hold up to abrasion and the incredible Vibram® Montagna gives the traction needed along the way, with toe and heel welts for crampons.

FEATURES of the La Sportiva Baruntse Boot

  • Equipped with a PU coated 2-layer PE insulating outer boot for durable warmth
  • Low profile all synthetic outer boot will not absorb moisture
  • Insulated with Ibi-thermo, a fibrous synthetic material with superb insulating properties that won't conduct cold from the ground up and locks in natural heat produced by the feet
  • Cordura coated inner boot with insulating high-density foam is super resilient and thermo-formable
  • SBR Aircushion midsole uses a honeycombe heel grid that flexes upon impact
  • Vibram Montagna Sole specifically designed for mountaineering and hiking

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 Great boot for mountaineering! Bought this boot to climb Mount Elbrus in Russia - it exceeded my expectations - wore this boot in 80degree weather in Mineral Vody airport in order to save bag room - my feet were very comfortable - once broken in (about 1.5weeks) the boots did not feel heavy at all. Once on the mountain over rocks and then cutting tracks in deap snow and on ice with crampons, the boots performed better than my expectations - feet always comfortable, never over heating but especially, never even remotely cold, even on a +12hr summit day during a raging snowstorm. Definitely recommend these boots!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Bottom line is these boots are extremely warm and still are good for technical routes This is my second pair of these boots and I love them! They are extremely warm and I've worn them up to 7,500m. They can be a little clunky but still are good for technical ice/snow routes. When I'm going over 7,000m/arctic I sometimes wear an overboot depending on just how cold it is. My only beef with these boots is that for wide feet you might need to widen them a bit at a boot fitter. I have to get the toe box stretched out a bit by a reputable fitter but besides that they are bomber! I definitely recommend them if you have a fit problem with the Spantik's like I do.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great boots! Comfortable, well-made, solid and far. I’m a Noob at climbing, but have decided to try it out by heading to Rainier. I bought these as a part of a massive gear purchase for the trip.,,,,I had heard that La Sportiva boots were the best, but they tend to run narrow. This made me nervous about purchasing online, but I pulled the trigger anyway. Upon receiving them I found that they do not feel narrow at all. I wear a 10 E size shoe. The 44's fit me perfectly.,,,,I haven't climbed in them yet, but I have been wearing them and I have had no discomfort. They are comfortable and flexible enough through the ankle that I would be surprised if I get any sort of "Shin Bang" that climbers regularly complain about with other Double Boots.,,,,

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Killer comfortable double boot I "broke" these beauties in up in the Sierras in March and I got blisters in places no doctor has ever discovered on my body...but then...then I got the liners molded pro-style and wore them 6 days straight in the North Cascades and they basically felt like worn in tennis shoes...heavy heavy hot tennis shoes. But seriously, I managed to keep the liners dry til day 4, and even after that with wet liners and wet socks my feet were comfy and toasty. Super stiff sole great for kick stepping and supporting your body + pack weight on your toes. Grivel G12s fit great. I have long narrow feet (normally wear 11.5/12) and 46.5s fit glove-style (after the molding). I would not hesitate to recommend these to anyone looking for a double boot and simultaneously looking to lighten their wallet significantly...

Rated 5 out of 5 by from These boots were brilliant - recently worn on my successful accent of Aconcagua (on the summit 18th I bought a size larger than my regular street shoes and they were a perfect fit. Although the temperatures were very cold - in particular on summit day, with just one pair of thick socks inside the liners - my feet were never cold. Fully recommend these boots...Interestingly 2 others in our group of 10 had the same boots and all three of us were happy with the Baruntse boots.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from great mountaineering boot the moldable inner boot is an awesome feature. boots are super robust and perform great for serious mountaineering trips. ,,,,used them for vertical wall ice climbing and they work just fine. you wont get the precision and feel that you would from a smaller, lighter, leather boot but hey, not everyone needs peak performance. ,,,,great boot

Rated 5 out of 5 by from good all around alpine boot for the money sizing is about 1 size up from regular shoe. I'm an 11w hiking boots, settled for a equivillant 45.5 EUR boot. Moosejaw has been very helpful during the exchange process. A necessity when you don't have an alpine store to ry out the shoes nearby.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Extremely Warm and Comfortable Mountain Boot I picked this boot up at a local climbing shop and I'm very happy to own it. The boot is extremely warm, comfortable, and sure beats the hell out of plastic boots. The inner boot is easy to cinch up and tighten even while wearing mittens. The boot does cost an arm and a leg and maybe a kidney but for those who venture into really cold areas and parts of the world, they will be glad they are wearing a Baruntse.
