The alpine is calling.
The La Sportiva Women's Nepal Cube GTX Mountaineering Boot was designed and built for long days spent on the glacier and early mornings climbing a combination of vertical ice and rock. This lightweight single boot is ideal for all but the world's highest peaks, and features a Gore-Tex Insulated Comfort insert for waterproof and breathable performance and cozy comfort in cold alpine climates.
The tough upper is composed of Sportiva's Idro-Perwanger leather upper, which is silicone-impregnated for added protection from moisture, and it's reinforced with a full-wrap rubber rand to protect the boot from front point shrapnel. Underfoot, the Nepal Cube is fitted with a low-profile Carbon Tech honeycomb insulated footbed to add warmth while still maintaining a stiff feel for secure climbing. The PU midsole with toe and heel welts accommodate step-in crampons, while the aggressive Vibram sole offers rock-solid traction during the approach to the glaciated flanks of your objective.

Ready for Winter
- Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
- Fit: Runs small
- Size Bought: 39
These are my first mountaineering boots and I am amazed at how comfortable they are straight out of the box. The toe box is roomy and can accommodate thicker socks if necessary. It does come up high but the ankle articulation keeps it somewhat flexible. The removable tongue makes the fit more comfortable as well as the sock lining at the top of the boot. I The snug fit will help keep the snow out. I am still breaking in the boots and have not worn them outside yet. I do however enjoy doing squats and push up in them! They keep your form amazing strong. I am looking forward to the winter in these boots. I wear a size 8, but found size 39 fit better than the 39.5
