Product Description Item No.   10188515

The La Sportiva Men's Xplorer Shoe is an approach shoe for making your way through the mountain to your favorite rock face. The upper is constructed with all synthetic materials, Airmesh and Hi-Wear mesh for breathability, with synthetic leather and a Vibram rubber rand for durability against dirt and debris. The inner mesh lining at the back of the shoe and tongue helps wick sweat and dries quickly when tackling technical terrain. The laces start at the toe, ready for personal adjustments, for easy trail walking or scrambling unexpected rock. A dual density midsole cushions your foot for the full day while the EVA RockGuard at the forefoot protects against bumps and bruises. The Xplorer is finished off with the Vibram Idro Grip X-Traction outsole, providing sticky grip on the rocks. I suppose that means it's time to drink up some nature.

FEATURES of the La Sportiva Men's Xplorer Shoe

  • Toe box overwrap technology rand construction controls foot creep when edging and smearing

LA SPORTIVA FIT GUIDE and INFO

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.

ROCK CLIMBING SHOES:
• 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.

ROCK CLIMBING SHOE FIT SYSTEMS:
• 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.

HIKING, BACKPACKING and MOUNTAINEERING BOOTS:
• 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 Excellent for Canyoneering, Sticky-Sticky-Sticky! Got these for canyoneering because I wanted something that was like a lightweight hiker for the approaches and sticky for the scrambling sections. These shoes rock, if you'll pardon the pun! Very comfortable; add a nice gel insole and they are even better. They drain well and dry out quickly. I was nervous about getting Vibram instead of Stealth soles, but I have been really pleased with these. Only caveat, these are at MOST a D width although the laces go all the way to the toe for a bit more flexibility. They aren't showing any signs of wear yet, and they've been through 10 canyons since I got them 2 months ago. When they do wear out, I'm getting another pair immediately!
