About La Sportiva
La Sportiva has developed a rich history of providing outdoor enthusiasts with
the most advanced technical footwear to take on the challenges of nature. Entrenched
in a longstanding tradition that continues to yield the most innovative shoes
and boots on the market, La
Sportiva never fails to step up to the challenge and exceed the
demands of everyone who has ever loved to stand proudly atop a summit.
Not only was La Sportiva founded in a small Italian village tucked inside an
enchanting alpine valley, but that is where they still conduct business by concocting
their magical shoes. With a factory of no more than 150 people, La Sportiva
maintains an intimate, personal approach to building every piece of footwear.
In fact, La Sportiva has no plans to ever leave their location, nestled in the
alps, as they promise to continue pioneering outdoor footwear and working tirelessly
to have a positive impact on the environment.
With climbing shoes like the Katana,
it is no surprise that La Sportiva has rocked out prime gear for the past 80
years. In fact, the entire men’s line of climbing shoes is stacked with
high performance pieces of footwear, but one round in the Katanas will unveil
the entire story. Constructed from Lorica leather and lined with a super breathable,
moisture wicking Pacific material, these shoes beg to summit any pitch. Reinforced
with the powers of Vibram XS Grip to ensure precise maneuvers and solid edging
for every ascent. If this clutch kick is any indication, there will be decades
more, packed full of innovative wonders for us to enjoy.
Trail running will never be the same once you sink your feet into a pair like
Raptor GTX. La Sportiva has perfected this model for tackling technical
terrain. A Gore-Tex lining provides a waterproof experience in any muddy, or
wet conditions. Super sticky rubber outsoles are made possible through FriXion
technology so you can get unlimited traction even in the most adverse conditions.
The TPU lacing harness system gives you a quick, efficient fit while a wrap
around toe bumper lets you crash through clutter and demolish all obstacles
without hesitation. Thrashing countless trails is all in a days work for La
Sportiva and their shoes like the women’s Raptor GTX.
If you plan on doing some serious business with mountains, La Sportiva has
a sweet stockpile of hiking and mountaineering boots to get you up that hill.
Glacier WLF Hiking Boot and the women’s FC 2.0 GTX Hiking
Shoes were made to rumble in the tundra. By keeping your feet dry and loading
you up with massive amounts of traction, there really is no trail you can’t
handle. When you up the ante by engaging in the most intense action that mountaineering
can throw your way, you can feel safe going all in with the La Sportiva men’s
Lhotse GTX and Women’s
Trango S Evo GTX Mountaineering Boots. Engineered for nothing but
performance and protection in adverse conditions, these groundbreaking boots
have forever changed the game. In fact, once La Sportiva puts their logo on
any of their products, the world is forever altered.
