Gore-Tex® Mountaineering Boot from La Sportiva
is a tough-as-nails, waterproof, insulated beast of a mountaineering boot. It
is made from silicone impregnated Italian Idro-Perwanger Roughout leather. Perwanger
has been making superb leather in Italy since 1780; and this particular leather
is the most durable leather available. The tanning process creates a leather
that is exceptionally water repellant, but breathable. The Lhotse GTX comes
with a removable EZ Flex tongue with Dry-Best® lining for customized fit and
comfort. For ultra waterproof-brethable insulation, the boot is lined with insulated
Gore-Tex®. The Lhotse's structure is reinforced with a 2mm coated full steel
shank for rigidity for crampons while a SBR (synthetic butadiene rubber) midsole
provides high performance shock-absorption. To finish it up the Lhotse GTX Mountaineering
Boot from La Sportiva features an automatic crampon compatibile MPE (Mountaineering
Performance Evolution) outsole made by Skywalk. Bottom line: this tried and
tested mountaineering boot has the toughness and the features you need to do
your next ascent with comfort and confidence.
