This boot begs for abuse again and again. Karakorum used a new tapered 8mm high density Nylon® that provides a smooth flex and protection throughout the boot. This allows for new-matic crampon compatibility and long lasting consistent flex. The 2.8mm Idro-Perwanger leather upper is ideal for water repellency, breathability and durability. A SBR Aircushion sole provides cushion and helps insulate from cold or hot climates. Perfect for light duty mountaineering, heavy hiking and backpacking or various types of outdoor work situations where you need durable support and all-day comfort. IDEAL TERRAIN: general mountaineering and heavy backpacking. WEIGHT: 30.97 oz/ 878 g. LAST: Makalu. UPPER: 2.8mm Idro-Perwanger Roughout Leather/Vibram® rubber rand. Cordura® cuff. LINING: Dry-Best. INSOLE: 8mm high density Nylon® with anti-torsion plate. MIDSOLE: SBR Aircushion. SOLE: Vibram® Couloir. SIZES: 38-48 (half sizes).

My go tos!

These are my go to boots, I use them for general backpacking and most of my day hikes. Many people would argue that these are overkill for day hikes but I beg to differ. The support and grip of these boots are insane, yet are still flexible enough that I understand why La Sportiva rates them as a 'light' mountaineering boot. However, that being said I've used them on every surface imaginable from rock fields, to ice/snow, heavy mud/rain and each time I've been nothing but impressed. You may read reviews online saying others have experienced the sole separating from the top of the boot but I haven't experienced such issues and love La Sportiva/Gear Coop so much that if something like that were to happen I know they'd have my back.

We won't do anything without asking your permission first. These are your images, we just hope they can help future outdoor enthusiasts find the gear they need.
