    Details

    Protective performance to the core.

    The La Sportiva Men's Core High GTX Boot uses Gore-Tex Surround technology to enhance waterproofing and breathability for backpackers and hikers. Unlike traditional waterproof membranes, the Surround membrane wraps completely around the foot for waterproof protection, and it ensures excellent breathability through the sole's breathable mesh inserts. La Sportiva's Nano-Cell upper fuses ventilated AirMesh with protective PU reinforcements for comfort and long-lasting durability.

    Underfoot, La Sportiva worked with Vibram to give the Core High GTX Boot's sole plenty of traction on any terrain. The Impact Brake System places slanted lugs at the heel to increase braking power and decrease impact forces by 20%. A compression-molded EVA midsole gives you plenty of cush for long trails, and the TPU inserts ensure stability on rugged ground.

    Super comfortable, already leaking.

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit: Runs small
    • Size Bought: 46

    PROS:
    I love the comfort of this boot. I have day hiked in these about 50 miles total. I have hiked in the cold and snowy to the middle of summer and never really been uncomfortable. They are warm-ish in the winter and cool-ish in the summer. The boots look great as well. The traction is awesome. I live in the Pacific Northwest and these grip great, even when wet.
    CONS:
    They run about a half size small. I normally wear 12US and needed a 12.5US in these. They are not real protective. The outer shell while durable does not offer much more protection than a thick sneaker against rocks or roots on the sides of your foot. Being in the Pacific Northwest, it is wet here a lot. Lots of water on the ground. These boots have started to leak a bit around the toes and bottom of the foot. Not sloshing around or anything but still leaking.

    This is a GoreTex boot, and I bought them because of that, but they are leaking which is not cool. I have not trashed them at all. I would say I have barely rubbed the initial texture off the treads so they are not that old. Probably another 500+ miles on the tread.

    Good thing about GoreTex though is that if they leak they warranty them.

    Excellent Boots -

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: 43.5

    I used these boots on the Tour du Mont Blanc trek and came away extremely impressed with these boots. I used the boots on rainy days in slippery ascents / descents and the grip was tenacious. Feet remained dry throughout rain & streams, while the breathability was phenomenal. I never once felt my feet were overheating, even on very hot days. I highly recommend these boots.

    Watch out

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: 44.5

    Really I don't know if it's only me, but I got this shoes in and is comfortable, good looking and supportive (30 lbs pack) but it has an issue, I took my shoes to a local outdoors store so I could climb a rock ( fake) to simulate hiking, the rock it's only 3 feet high with a good incline, this shoes slid like I was on skates, so they had a pair of La sportiva Syntesis ( low version of this shoes) just as bad, what's up with that? What is the break thing do anyway? If I was out on a trail and hit a wet rock? On my ass I would go for sure, La sportiva you disappointed me. So I say, do your research before you buy it, or you may find your self on your ass with a 30lb pack

    In the past I used La Sportiva Trail shoes without a problem, except for their sizing which is all over the place. I have gone from a 41.5 to 42.5 depending on the model. What is their Problem?
    Thanks for your honest review, I will stay away from these.
