Really really good

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

AmaZing boots for alpine climbing. Warm in the winter time even at 0 f with a thick sock. One draw back , the shoe laces seem to work them selfs loose on mine which could be very bad if you are burning trail and get snow in them. I guess that's where gators come into play though.

I wear a 43.5 in the Ganda Guide. Anybody out there have an idea about how the sizing for these two models match up?

Best Answer Responded on

Hey!
you are going to find that these have a classic la sportiva fit similar to the Ganda Guide, narrow throughout the toebox. There will be a few big differences in sizing consideration. You will want to account for the type of socks you will wear and also how cold the temps will be. Generally I would go up a half size at least to allow for a thicker sock/sock liner and allow room for your toes in cold temps. If you are only going to be in moderate temps you could probably size the same 43.5. If you are interested in trying a few sizes out, I can help you get an order set up!

Responded on

43.5 what the hell is that not everyone is European or an experience Mountaineer just getting started wear a 10 to 10 and half depending on brand what's that in European sizing

Also how do you determine if your foot is wide or narrow A simple measurement??

The best boots so far

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

The best boots so far, I used in a mountain of 6385 m altitude WITHOUT ANY problem. Very comfortable, not cold feet, in mixed terrain are very good almost like a cat feet.

Excellent for ice climbing, I used with the Black Diamond Cyborg Clip Crampons also in mixed terrain.

In the photo summit of Peque�o Alpamayo 5.370m Bolivia.

They need to fit

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

If the boots fit your feet, they are hands down an amazing boot. they stick to everything, are super adjustable, fit my crampons wonderfully, and flex well when approaching and down climbing.

One issue that i have is my right foot is smaller than my right resulting in some heavy blistering on the smaller foot from heel lift. The tread wears pretty fast, so limit the time you spend walking the streets of Chamonix.

Do yourself a favor and get these the same size as your street shoes, and add a quality insole. I do no recommend "sizing up" to accommodate thicker socks for added warmth - this will lead to heel lift and reduced circulation in your feet from tying the laces super tight.

These boots have basically zero insulation and at 4800 meters, my toes were ice. if you are climbing in 0 C or above, these will be perfect.

I recommend trying these on in the store and spending no less than 15 minutes walking around in them. I wear a 43 in asolo boots and ordered a 43.5 (too large) returned for a 43 with no issues in heel lift or toe jam as long as the boot is laced properly.

I wish I bought these

Just returned from a successful 3 day summit of Mt Rainier. 4 people on our team were wearing these boots. Everyone was very pleased with them. I purchased the Salewa Pro Gaiter and had a bad time. I wish I bought these.

what size is 11.5 in this boot? 44.5 or 45? thanks! also, how does this boot fit compared to the new Nepal Cube GTX?

Best Answer Responded on

Hey Seth,

The size for a 11.5 is going to be the 45 and this boot and the Nepal Cube GTX are built on the same platform so the fit will be the same.

I am doing field work in Antarctica this coming Austral Summer. I need solid mountineering boots for crampon use, some technical use, and warmth. What are the general thoughts on this model. It still needs to be comfortable for walking on exposed rock areas for some distances.

Responded on

The Nepal is a really great boot and I think would be a good choice for that purpose. It accepts a crampon really well and hikes great. Warmth is generally good on this boot but not sure what temps you are going to be facing. I am emailing you to get a little more info and help get you set up with the proper boot.

I am going for Everest Base Camp on December...

Posted on

I am going for Everest Base Camp on December 2014 and I have no idea on what boots to wear. I have read that it can get down to -20C or - 30C at night and -5C during the day. Are these boots good for this trip? I guess they are OK for the temperature, but I am afraid that they are very hard and not flexible for hiking. I imagine that most of my way will be only trails and rocks, with a few ice and snow. Any tips?

Best Answer Responded on

Dont think about the nights, you wont be sitting in these anyway, If you are wearing these at night then they will be more than warm enough as you are probably moving. Think about this boot http://www.backcountry.com/la-sportiva-makalu-mountaineering-boot-mens?ti=UExQIENhdDpNZW5cJ3MgTW91bnRhaW5lZXJpbmcgQm9vdHM6MToxOmJjc0NhdDQxMTAwMDMx&skid=LSP0092-NA-S42, a lot lighter, still accepts a crampon. See in the day if it gets cold chances are your probably moving. In the night if it gets really cold you are bundled in a sleeping bag and wearing down booties. Just my 2 cents.

Responded on

I trekked to Gorek Shep and around the Khumbu in Dec/Jan 11/12. You should use a warm heavy-duty hiking/backpacking boot not necessarily a mountaineering boot. I own the LaSportiva Nepal Evos and use them for crampon-based activities. The walk to EBC area typically does not involve using crampons (and I did not use crampons in winter 11/12). If you are doing the three passes (Cho La) you may need some ice protection. Otherwise, look at a warm hiking boot - I used the Vasque Summit GTX with success.

Tough all-round mountaineering boot...

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

I've had this boot for over 5 years and it still works as well as it did the first year. I typically wear a US 9.5 shoe and have narrow feet. In a size 43 this boot gives me enough room to wiggle my toes with a medium/heavy wool sock and comfortably kick my front points into ice. I generally wear BD Sabretooth Pro crampons with this boot and they fit perfectly, feels like one complete system. As others have mentioned, the lacing does seem to come undone on longer climbs. However, one nice feature is the lace-lock found near the ankle. This feature has kept my boots tight from the ankle down giving me time to fix the laces later on the route.

Comfort and Precision

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

This is one of the most comfortable boots I have ever worn. The flex is perfect not overly stiff. If your looking for a long term all around great mountaineering boot this is what your looking for.

Great Versatile Boot

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

I have used these on several summit climbs in the North east.
Temps from 60 TO - 50 . On a long 20 mile single day Trek . I would
Reco these be used with a heavy weight wool sock in the winter as these do not have a liner . For leathers they are about the best around . These are about the same weight as plastic boots 2.5 lbs each . Not as warm as plastic boots but they allow for much more footwork.
Evo's offer amazing balance on all mixed terrain from rock to ice.

I wear a 44 in sportiva light hiking boots and they are pretty snug. Should I go with a 44.5 or 45 as I will probably be wearing thicker socks with these?

Posted on

How does the sizing of the La Sportiva line of boots compare with those from Scarpa? I've got several pairs of Scarpa boots size 42 and wonder if the 42 in the Nepal Evo would be comparable.

Best Answer Responded on

From my findings, Scarpa tends to run wider than La Sportiva. Best to be able to try before you buy!

Responded on

I agree with Chris, about the Scarpa boot and def try them on and spend time with both brands to determine which fit "your foot" best.

Hi, Do You recommend these boots to peaks between 6000 and 7000 meters?

Hi, Do You recommend these boots to peaks...
Best Answer Responded on

i would recommend going to a warmer boot for peaks that high. There are a bunch of companies making a '6000 meter boot such as the scarpa phantom 6000. These boots will be much warmer at those altitudes.

The nepal could be OK if the temps are warm.

Responded on

I would look at either the Baruntse or the Spantik. The Baruntse is a warm double boot. The spantik is a warm double boot WITH the ability to climb more technical routes with ease.

Responded on

Thanks for the help, At the end I decided to buy the Nepal EVO GTX for a mountain of 6385m, at the end of the expedition near july I will be posting the performance of the boots.
