    Pull on the La Sportiva Spantik Mountaineering Boots and climb higher and harder.

    The La Sportiva Men's Spantik Mountaineering Boots give you the warmth for high-altitude and winter mountaineering and the agility to send difficult ice and mixed pitches. The synthetic outer boots increase flexibility and help reduce weight to a low 5lb 1oz per pair. Heat-moldable, removable liners give the Spantik Mountaineering Boots a precise fit to ease foot fatigue and minimize heel lift when you front point steep ice. La Sportiva knows what it feels like to lace boots while you wear gloves, so the invented the Fast Lace System, which lets you cinch down these boots with a single pull—even with gloves.

    Small fit, awesome lacing system

    • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
    • Fit: Runs small

    Fits REALLY small in front half of the foot, loose in the heel. I had to return because the fit didn't work for MY foot. I wear New Balance sneakers as a reference. I thought the lacing system would be a gimmic, but loved how easy it was to lace up securely with one hand.

    4 5

    I was going to get these..

    • Height: 5' 7"
      Weight: 190 lbs

    I was.

    Was being the key word.

    I just got the La Sportiva G2 SM's and I am so happy I did. For $40 bucks more and having a lighter, warmer and an easily adjustable boot made all the sense in the world over the Spantiks.

    Why am I telling people this? Some may know the G2's are out there and that they have become available. Check out La Sportiva's website. For those who don't know there is a new boot on the market for only a few dollars more. I guess this 'review' is for you.

    The Spantiks are a great boot, there is just another option out there from La Sportiva worth checking out.

    And while throwing food for thought out there. Scarpa's new phantom boots are totally amazing looking too.

    This 2016 season is going to have a bunch of other options put out to the climbing community.

    Can you tell me how is it with the sizing on the G2's?

    The sizing is right there with both the Nepal Evos and the Batura 2.0's I own. I wear a 44.5 and the sizing is the same throughout.

    After watching my buddy trying to get his Baruntse's tightened I was even more happy with getting these. He is tugging and pulling just trying to get them firmed up, then trying to tie them while keeping the tension. Me... I just kick my heal back into the heal pocket and turn the boa system until I am satisfied. I am done and ready to go. I think he is kicking himself for not waiting to get the G2's.

    What size running/street shoes are you?

    I usually wear a 10.5 in any shoe I buy. In La Sportiva I always buy an 11. Even in the Boulder X approach shoes from them. I have a wider front toe area than most and that extra half size makes them fit normal. I like the tighter heel pocket that La Sportiva has in their boots and shoes. I tried Scarpas and the toe area felt great but the heel pocket was too loose and my heel wouldn't stay in place. I never thought I would be in La Sportivas. Going up a half size for me hasn't had any negatives with their performance.

    I see you did a review on their running shoes you own. I would stay with the same size in their boots.

    I usually wear Salomon running shoes and stay with my normal 10.5 in anything from them and my Hoka hiking boots too. They I would call a standard width. La Sportiva is worldly known as a narrow fit

    Perfect Fit

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: Runs small
    • Size Purchased: 39

    I have a small foot & very narrow heel. I wore other rental boots on a 6 day trip that gave me pressure sores, which left scarring. I invested in a good pair of boots for happy feet on future trips. So far, so great. These worked very well for me because only the heel (and not the toe box) seemed to run narrow in the 39, which fits my needs perfectly. I wear a US Women's 7 in running shoes & hiking boots typically

    Unanswered Question

    This is more a question about gaiters than the boot. I own size 39. Will the OR Crocodile Size Small gaiters fit over this boot? My other (short) size small gaiters don't fit (and wouldn't be tall enough regardless)

    Unanswered Question

    Will you sell the la sportiva g2 sm boots? If so when do you expect to see them?
    Thanks

    Unanswered Question

    does anyone use superfeet insoles with this boot?

    I wear size 9 on regular shoe. Should I go to size 10 to take into account the double socks and swelling at altitude?

    these fit small for me, I wear a size 10 in street shoe and with the spantik I started with a 44, then went to a 44.5 then went to 45 and it feels like 45 is giving me the best fit with an insert, and wearing heavy sock, and with the trango a 43.5 with medium sock fits perfect, imo if I were you I would size up, as you mentioned you will have on a heavy sock and when on your feet for several hours you can have some swelling

    I wear an 11 in Asics shoes and an 11 in Meindl boots. My feet run very, very cold. Would you guess size 45 or 45 1/2 for the Spantik? Thanks! Bill

    I would recommend sticking with your normal shoe size at first and getting the 45 (according to the size chart the 45 is actually an 11.5). I'm assuming that your going to be wearing thick socks with these to keep your feet warm. If the size you buy does not work you can always exchange them for a better size.

    I would always recommend trying on different sizes to try to get the best fit for your foot because unhappy feet = bad trip.

    Which Grivel G12 binding type is needed? New-matic or Cramp-O-matic?

    Hey,

    For these boots the Cramp-O-Matic will be the best choice. The Spantik is compatible with fully automatic crampons. If you have any other mountaineering questions please feel free to get a hold of me.

    Size problem

    Awesome boots but i am confused on size. i rented Nepal EVO sz 39.5 and those were quite comfortable.
    Spantik i tried 40.5 and they seemed to fit but was not sure :(

    La Sportiva Spantik size 40.5

    La Sportiva Spantik size 40.5

    La Sportiva Spantik size 40.5 fits perfectly with Grivel g12 crampons. I used Grivel's super asymmetric bars because I found that with my small size boot, the G12s with standard bars didn't quite match the curve of the boot but you can use the standard grivel bars too. I was just nit picky.

    Heck yeah! Nice shot.

    I'm trying to figure out my fit. What is your street shoe size?

    I want to decide sizing. I have try the spantik in 40,5 and 41 and still not sure which one to get. Does it get loose with the use? I have the Olympus in 41. It fit well but after years it feels a little loose and I was wondering if i should size down half size with the spantik.

    The Olympus and Spantik have very similar characteristics and uses. I would stick with the size that you know is going to fit, if you wanted to you could always try on a 40.5 and see if your toes do not knock the front of the boot when you kick a step or walk down a flight of stairs.

    Amazingly comfortable double boot

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

    I knew these would be warm, but I didn't realize how comfy and usable they would be. I've never once been even the slightest bit cold, and they are easy enough to walk in that if I want to go on a 'posh' alpine trip in the lower 48, I might even bring these. It's not a huge deal to take long approaches in these, despite their weight.

    Thanks for the review, Chris!

    Himalayan Worthy!

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit: Runs large

    I got these for a trip to some 6000m+ Himalayan peaks, never once had an issue with cold feet the entire time. Did some ice climbing while there too and had plenty of control for the technical parts, well worth the extra money over the Baruntse's.

    I have a size 42 in the Nepal Evo's which fit perfect and went up half a size for the Spantiks which was the perfect fit.

    I am a woman climber and wear standard US women's size 8 is my running shoe. What size will be best in spantik?

    I wear a US women's 8.5 in a running shoe, a 8 in a street shoe. Thought the 41s would be too large, but I just ordered them and they fit nicely w/ light liner and heavy wool sock. I tried many other double boots as I wanted to avoid the steep price tag for these Spantiks...but they are by far the most comfortable boot I've tried. Feel VERY warm too. Quite bulky and not as light as I'd hoped, but gotta go w/ best fit.

    Best Answer

    I wear a size 8.5 women's running shoe and found that the size 40.5 Spantik fits me well. Try a size 40 - might work for you!

    I am a size 38 so I bought a size 39.5 Spantik (both pictured)and could not wear the boot even without socks because my toes were crammed in. Total shock to me. An 8.5 women's shoe is too big for me, so I think I should be able to get the 40.5, like joindc mentioned, and have room for socks.

    great boot

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: True to size

    Got for denali and used for training hikes and ice climbing this winter. I had a pair of scarpa phantom guides i wore up rainier and they ripped holes in my heels so i was scared about how much worse a double boot was going to feel. Never have i been so wrong. These boots are so comfortable. Can do 20 miles in a day in these and have no hot spots.

    I am a girl looking for a double boot for...

    I am a girl looking for a double boot for mountaineering 6,000 to 8,000 meters. Looks like the Spantik is the best option but I would need size 38 and I can't find it anywhere! Does anyone know of a women's specific double boot similar to the spantik?

    Best Answer

    I'm in exact same situation, grrrr. La Sportiva makes this boot only to size 39: http://www.sportiva.com/products/footwear/mountain/spantik
    Only brand that seems comparable is Millet and they don't seem to sell much mtneering goods in U.S.

    We're stuck with heavier, less flexible double plastics from Koflach and Scarpa.

    Very comfortable

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

    These boots look to be huge on the pictures, but when you put them on with your snow pants, they are not that big at all. They are very comfortable for my feet. I wear size 45 tennis shoes, and I got size 45 for these boots and they fit great. I have not had a chance to take them hiking yet, but I wore them the whole day ice fishing with some quite long walks on the lake in deep snow and they worked great. My feet stayed dry and warm the whole time. Also, These boots are not as heavy as they look like. BTW, all other people on the lake were impressed with my boots and were asking about them :) I am planning to take these boots to the top of Mt Rainier in June. I am not afraid it's overkill. My feet stayed warm when it was about 20F and wind in the morning, and I didn't feel they are too warm when it got to 50F during the day.

    Simon, I was considering these for Rainier this year and higher peaks after. How did these work for you on your Rainier climb? Warm/not too warm? Comfortable? Thanks!

    Daniel, I had the same concerns last year but went with my gut and bought them knowing I would do higher peaks after - it was a great decision. My feet never got too warm (and I run warm) but best of all they were never cold, when other people's were who chose to wear a lighter boot like the Evo. Of note though, I was on Rainier the last week of May. I would definitely recommend them if you know you will be doing more in the future. Extremely comfortable, and it's the only boot that has never given me blisters. I have since used them on Mt. Elbrus and was thankful I had made the investment up front! Hope this helps!
