    A smart choice for serious climbers.

    Footwear can mean the difference between success and failure in the mountains, so count on the La Sportiva Trango Extreme EVO Light GTX Boots for fast-and-light alpine climbs and massive ice lines. The Gore-Tex Duratherm lining ensures warm and dry feet even when you're sending a dripping ice pitch. La Sportiva used a combination of Cordura uppers and Vibram rubber rands to make these boots tough enough for life in the alpine realm, and the narrow-profile, crampon-compatible Vibram soles give you stability on and off the ice.

    La Sportiva Trango Best boot on market

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: 46.5

    La Sportiva has always been a leader in outdoor sporting goods. Now with the Trango it puts the competition to rest for three reasons. Firstly the weight, the sleek design and light weight make this boot great for comfortable long days without sacrificing durability. secondly the comfort of the boot is by far the best on the market, whether hiking, multi pitch or single it stands up to everything easily. And lastly price. priced cheaper and competitive with it makes it the go to boot for experience or novices to ice climbing or alpinism.

    Really wanted to love these, but...

    • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
    • Fit: Runs small
    • Size Bought: 46 and 46.5 (normally 11.5)

    They just didn't fit right. I've been looking for just the right mountaineering boot to climb Rainier and also use for general backpacking. I went to the REI flagship store in Seattle and tried on multiple brands - La Sportiva, Salewa, Scarpa - and I also bought some Asolo's (which is what I wear for hiking boots) online. I typically wear size 11.5 shoes, which is also what I wear for Asolo hiking boots, and my foot is on the narrow side, though I typically get normal width footwear. At REI I found that the scarpa's are generally to wide for me. When I get the length right, there's too much open volume in the forefoot. Salewa didn't fit me quite right either. The La Sportiva Trango Cube GTX fit me great - though of note it was a 46.5 (US 12.5) that fit - a full size larger than normal. The Asolo's I got also fit well, though both the Trango GTX and Asolo didn't have insulation, which I want since my feet do generally tend to get cold (and I'm from Minnesota so I have experience with this!). I decided to give the Trango Extremes a try. First I ordered the 46.5 but they ended up not fitting quite right so I tried 46 as well. The length in 46 was good, but I had to really tie them tight to keep my foot secure - which resulted in a couple pressure spots that I couldn't relieve because the lacing system does not give much option for tailoring tightness in different areas of the foot (which Asolo's do really well). I tried walking around in them for a few hours - I really wanted to love them! - but they just didn't feel right and I've still got a couple sore spots 24 hours later. They also were a little heavier and bulkier than I expected - though the insulation likely played a part in that. The boot looks great and I could tell it's great quality, but for the price it needs to feel and function great. Unfortunately this one didn't work for me.

    Fit me like a glove, or better?

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

    These boots could not fit my foot any better. I have not had a change to really test them on anything steep, but my less technical trip have been a dream for my feet. On one certain occasion the only part of me that was not soaked to the core was my feet in these boots. I will continue to buy these if they ever wear out.


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

    Warm, Great Quality, but very painful. I walked around for over a month trying to break these boots in, but no luck so far. When I walk more that 200ft or so, a sharp pain shoots up my fibula, in each left and right leg. I bought a size large than I normally wear to account for thick socks. I'm trying out different insoles now to see if something will help.

    These are really great boots, especially with a good set of crampons, so I'm hopeful that I can still make them work somehow. I'll come back and edit / add a photo to this post if I find something that fixes the problem. I bought 4 different insoles... something better work.

    A Cadillac Escalade Ride and Fit

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

    Wow, right out of the box and onto the PNW glaciers these boots never have gave me a problem. No break in needed just an awesome comfortable ride that kept my feet warm during many summit attempts throughout the PNW, even during a cold hunker on the side of Rainier in sub zero windchill.

    The lacing system allows for great adjustment and locking at mid ankle and the feather-lite weight helps to keep your legs fresh for those long days.

    They tend to run a bit small, so go up at least a half size to allow a great fit.

    Great Boot

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

    I love these boots! Solid enough for crampons yet supple enough to handle some technical rock climbing, they are a great compromise for mixed alpine ascents. They generally stayed very dry. However, when I had to climb through spring runoff, they kept my feet dry for quite a while. When finally inundated by runoff, they still kept my feet warm despite being wet. The sizing is great as I have found La Sportiva fits me well and find what fits in one model runs true to size in another; these boots are no exception.

    La Sportiva/ Trango Extreme Evo light GT

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    I wore my new Trango Extreme EVO light GT's two days working around my property and was worried they were not broke in enough for my next big trip. I was wrong. I climbed Mt Whitney, Mt Shasta, Mt Hood, and Mt Rainer in a 2 week period and they have worked great. I encountered extreme heat on Whitney (88 degrees) and had no problems. Then on Mt Shasta we had 70 to 80 mph winds and a chill factor down to 0 degrees and my feet never got cold. They work great in the snow, with crampons, on snowshoes, in loose rock and just about everything a person could throw at them. Great boot.

    as good as they get

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    i've used these for the past year, spring in the sierra nevada, early winter in mexico on a pair of volcanoes. they're are probably more durable boots out there but the warmth to weight ratio of these is unparalleled. cold feet have never been an issue. designed for technical jaunts at which they excel, but have also survived the miles of hiking i've put on them as well.

    If you wanna look cool, buy these boots!

      Bought these last winter to use for some casual ice climbing and mountaineering. They've been good to me so far. Didn't feel like it took a particularly long time to break them in. Surprisingly cozy, in my opinion, for a mountaineering boot. My feet sweat a lot but haven't had too much trouble with these so far.

      I'm usually a size 10.5, depending on the shoe. My left foot is about 1/2 a size longer than my right and I've found with La Sportiva's it's always good to size up a half to a full size. I went for a size 45 on these and they work like a glove.

      Also, if you're looking for style points, I've gotten lots of comments on these from my more seasoned ice climbing buddies.

      Favorite climbing boots

        Sad to say - you really need to try these on in a store. Took me a couple times to get the size right. I'm a 9.5 and am happy with the 43 and thick socks. These boots climb amazingly well. Great for vertical ice and rock. However, mine seem to leak a lot. 4 stars because I had to seam-seal the boots and keep up a schedule of a Nikwax spray down. Also, these boots wear quickly. However, the performance of these boots is worth the wear and tear. They are not a winter expedition boot. If it's a weekend's worth of climbing in cold conditions - this is your boot. Also - the interface between this boot and the new Petzl Lynx crampons is amazing. The best fit I've ever had between any boots and crampons.


          These boots are great! They're warm, light, and provide a great feel while climbing. Ankle articulation is awesome allowing backstepping, stemming, and other tomfoolery while climbing. I would recommend these to any alpinist whether they be a weekend warrior climbing waterfalls to a serious peak bagger.

          My first love

            Never having owned a pair of mountaineering boots I didn't know what to expect. I picked up a pair of La Sportiva Trango S Evo GTX boots this past summer, but unfortunately they were a size to small so I never got to utilize them in their element. After some more research I decided on the 'Silver Bullets', and couldn't be more excited. They have a tad bit more rocker than the red Trango S Evo, and a full shank which makes them an ice climbing monster. I sized up a half size from my traditional street shoe size of 10 (42) to a 42.5 euro. I'm glad I did as these run a little narrow so my fit is perfect now. The break in period on these babies is about 4-5 days worth of hiking, climbing, and hanging out. Overall I'm very impressed with their warmth, water proofness, and fit.


              Great boots, light enough to hike a long approach without tiring me out and stiff and warm enough to spend all day on snow and ice afterward. On my first non-break-in outing with these I was foolish enough to skip the gaiters as I wasn't expecting deep snow...of course by the end of the hike I'd gotten so much snow over the tops of the boots that my socks were TOTALLY saturated and I could wring them out! However my feet were still warm on that 15 degree day thanks to these boots and quality socks.

              FWIW I sized up a half size over the new Makalus because of the narrower last.


                if your into extreme terrain buying something else would be a mistake my biggest problem is not wanting to take them off. if spiderman were to wear boots he would be wearing these.


                  these area boot without a limit! they are slim light and fast, yet tough and warm enough for the gnarliest rock and ice terrain in the world! take the time wearing these around hiking or on short climbs to get the WELL broken in at first, this will save you a lot of trouble on really long approaches with rubs and hot spots and such. perfect for auto crampons and climb GREAT right on alpine rock! stiff enough to get good register on even small foot placements with no crampons yet flexible enough to twist your feet into all the right places.

                  my life changed the day i brought these bad boys home!

                  winter alpine solo

                  Great boots! One of the very best all around lwt alpine boots available. If you are looking for durability and a bit more warmth check out the Nepal.

                  Still over all this is an awesome boot, winter and summer in the alpine or on water ice.

                  Best Answer


                  As with most specific questions about gear: it depends. Namely, it depends on what activity level you'll be using them for. If you're moving quickly and don't size them too small (so you can layer a warm pair of wool socks underneath) these are a great technical ice and mixed climbing boot. The boot is also lightweight and sensitive, making it a great tool for all but the coldest, lower altitude, 4 season climbs. If you'll be pulling long belay duties in these temps, you may find yourself doing some calisthenic leg-swings to keep your toes warm.


                  I've used this same boots several times on Mt. Rainier (once in subzero temps due to storm), Mt Baker, Mt. Hood and other PNW peaks and they'll definitely keep your feet warm at 20 degrees. Just as Micah stated, don't get them too small. I in fact went up a size to allow for a thin pair of liner socks and a thick pair of SmartWool heavy trekking socks.

                  Thanks Scott! I think I'm going to go with these. I wear a size 9.5 in men's shoes. Size 10 for my hiking boots. I wear a liner and thick wool socks, should I get a 43 or go with a 43.5? How true to size do these boots usually run? Thanks for the responses!

                  Ron? not sure if you already bought these or not? If not, I have the same size foot as you, 9.5, and was worried about the size too. I actually ordered a 43.5 in this boot and a 43 in a mammut mamook. To me, they felt the same in terms of size. I kept the 43.5 Extreme? going out this weekend with them. Hope you have the same luck, will let you know how they

                  Thanks wayp417858! No, I haven't ordered them yet but was going to put an order in on Wednesday for the 43.5 a take a shot in the dark to see if they would fit. Now i fell better, hopefully they will fit good. Thank you and good luck on your trip!

                  How do this Trango Extreme Evo compare with the Nepal Evo GTX?

                  They are quite different boots. The Nepal is an incredibly warm comfortable boot for general winter mountaineering that in my opinion (and use) excel at long high altitude climbs. Super rigid but just enough flex in the ankle. The Trango Evo Extremes are much like the other models. Light weight mix climbing boots capable of tackling almost any terrain in early winters and late springs. For longer colder climbs Id pick the Nepal over these but on shorter technical routes these rule! Size up a half size as the heels fit real snug. cheers.

                  I'll be doing field work on rugged terrain...

                  I'll be doing field work on rugged terrain and alpine rock climbing in the Bugaboos, Cascades, and Rockies this summer. Are these boots too stiff to be used for both every day field work, approaches, and climbing?

                  Best Answer

                  i climb year-around in these boots in Cascades, and they rock. given the length of the approaches, i wouldn't go for a stiffer boot - too much suffering. for climbing, i'd say this is the one.
                  for work, they'd probably feel great on your feet, but they aren't that stiff. work use will probably depend on how much you're planning to abuse them and drop stuff on them.

                  Quick question. I am trying to climb Rainier...

                  Quick question. I am trying to climb Rainier and the Grand Teton this summer and am trying to figure out which boot would excel at both types of these climbs. I realize they are two different types of climbing, glacier and alpine rock, but what one boot would you suggest for this? I'm looking at these Trango Extreme's as well as the Salewa Raven Combi's.

                  I can't comment on the Salewa's but I used the Trangos to climb Rainier 2 summers ago and loved them. My feet didn't get cold and they were so much lighter and more comfortable than a double boot. I live in Alaska now and have used these in temps lower than you will find on Rainier in the summer. They are also great for ice climbing. Everyone is different but I think these boots are great.

                  How warm are these for Winter trips, such as Rainier? I live in Utah along the Wasatch mountains and play in the snow. How do they compare to the Nepal EVO GTX in terms of warmth? I am not a hardcore mountaineer, so the price on these are a little more appealing then the Nepal's.

                  Best Answer

                  Trevor - The Nepal is a slightly warmer boot, and also provides a bit more ankle support. The Trango Extreme will provide warmth when you're in motion during extremely cold days, but if you are stagnant at camp your feet will probably feel a bit chilly. In this case bring along a pair of compressible down booties like for hanging around camp. Overall I would recommend the Nepal's as a mountaineering boot as the Trango Extreme's are more of a waterfall climbing or warmer temperature boot.
