I have not used that many boots, but these boots are far and away the best I've tried. I am prone to shin bang, and to cold feet, and to blisters - I am a lot of fun. But th…

No question the warmest dbl boot I have used. Climbs really well on steep ice and rock and you cna walk in them. Most of the big boys are using them on anything cold and ext…

It's been 751 days since my 1st review. In that time we (the boots and I) have gone through break-in (which wasn't bad), several (6) ambitious climbs, and most (that means mo…

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 Sport…

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…

These boots are great. Just use them for a 18,500 peak, with 5000 vertical climb on 50 degress or more glaciers, and they performed flawlessly. Front pointing, stepping in, et…

I bought these for quick alpine trips around the pacific NW. They excel in areas where you may encounter mud, water, slush, snow, and ice all in the same day. As straight hiki…

I'm little skeptical of how long this boot will last. After only 40 miles, the sole is starting to delaminate from the boot and if I try to get the boots decently tight the ri…

I tried my best to break in these boots, but to no avail. I wasted $250 and now the boots just collect dust. If you've had success breaking in rugged boots then you experienc…

These boots are fantastic. I wanted a pair of uninsulated mountaineering boots for some alpine style climbing this summer and La Sportiva came through. The boots are comfortab…

This boot ROCKS! I have hiked over 100 miles in my pair and they seam barely worn and are cozy when its cold, dry when its soggy and comfy throughout. In buying such a stout b…

These boots are designed for very cold weather, high altitude climbing. I got them to use on Denali and, hopefully, Everest. They're expensive, but so are frostbitten toes,…

These boots have been Denali tested and proven. On summit day we had 35+ winds making our windchill temp -50F. A few of our team members said they had cold feet....mine were t…

Light, waterproof, fit like a glove, wicks well [feet stay dry though wool socks are pretty damp at end of day], great foot, ankle and stance stability. No break in, just go.…

I struggled to find hiking boots that were comfortable, protective and functional. I tried these on and immediately fell in love! 2 weeks into my backpacking trip everyone had…

I bought this mountaineering boot because I already own a pair of La Sportiva Trango and I am extremly satisfied with the fit of the Trango. Now, I needed boots which are more…

I have been working in Antarctica for the past few months and these boots have been ideal. Warm enough to keep my feet from feeling the cold and solid enough to do a 4 week Se…

If you’re serious, you need to consider these. Sweet style handmade in Italy. Don’t get cheap boots; save and work for the best-fit you can afford.
La Sportiva is seri…

La Sportiva Mountaineering Boots
Even if you don't enjoy isolation, your feet do... Especially from the cold and wetness. We've collected a few La Sportiva mountaineering boots you'll definitely want to get a hold of if you plan on getting to high altitude terrain and ice.
For appetizers, we have the La Sportiva Makalu Boot. This boot is a classic leather mountaineering boot designed for years of abuse. We can't forget about the Nepal EVO GTX mountaineering boot, fitted with Gore-Tex/Duratherm lining which makes it completely waterproof and breathable. The insulating Ibi-Thermo footbed gives the boot exceptional insulation from the cold. You would like to finish the journey with all ten toes, correct?
If you're into plastic, take a peek at some La Sportiva mountaineering boots on the main menu such as the Olympus Mons EVO Boot. You're going to want to have a pair of these friends if you plan on mountaineering on the Himalayans. This pair of boots contains the most insulation one can find. Or so we think so.
Whether you're attempting to save glaciers or climb a mountain, La Sportiva mountaineering boots are a must, so take a look at the menu!
