    Details

    Long-lasting lightness for any alpine condition.

    The Men's Trango Ice Cube GTX Mountaineering Boot is La Sportiva's lightweight, insulated, and Gore-Tex option for technical alpine missions in any season. Thermo-Tech Injection's seamless construction works with the waterproof breathable Gore-Tex Insulated Comfort membrane to shed snowflakes, resist raindrops, and keep your foot dry from start to finish. The stretchy Schoeller gaiter also assists with wet weather protection without interfering with your mobility on the mountain, and the thermo-sealed zipper offers a secure closure that doesn't allow seepage.

    Underfoot, the Trango Ice Cube uses a sturdy, supportive, and warm Honeycomb Tech footbed with various midsoles underneath. PU adds stability at the toe and heel, cushy EVA comforts the center and heel, and TPU inserts enhance stability where you need them most. Vibram's One sole is exclusive to La Sportiva, featuring rugged lugs and semi-automatic crampon compatibility to help you conquer any terrain you come across.

    Great boot but durability concerns

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: 42.5

    These boots are awesome. They're very light and climb ice exceptionally well. I got the same size as my Nepal Evos and the fit was perfect.

    Unfortunately after 7 days of normal ice climbing, one of the plastic lace locks on my left boot broke off, rendering the boot largely unusable on steep ice (you couldn't tighten the laces around the foot/ankle junction). Backcountry responded to my RMA request and it would appear they're sending me a new set of boots, but I'm concerned that this could happen again in the future. I also know of at least one other pair that had this same issue.

    Hey James,

    DId you have any pictures of the breakage?

    I guess I should also be asking anyone from Backcountry what La Sportiva said about the breakage and about warrantying any of them that have future issues. Is the plastic vulnerable to cold? Is there a solution in the works?

    The Trango cubes have been out long enough to show signs of weaknesses in the design and construction.

    How cold were the days you were climbing in?

    Impressed with the quality.

    I know it doesn't look like it, but I have been on the fence with boots from La Sportiva.

    The Batura's were the first of the new generation of boots I got from them, now followed by the G2 SM's and these Trango Ice Cubes, which have pushed the boundaries of the Trango Cubes even further.

    I was using the Evo's as an all around boot, but was just getting tired of their weight. Throwing those things on the pack and humping them up to the snow line during the summer. It sucked. The Batura's seemed like too dainty of a princess to be slopping through the scree and non existent snow conditions of last year. Then, low and behold, La Sportiva comes out with the G2 SM and the new Trango Ice Cube. Yeah, I wanted to have them.
    While I feel that I could get rid of a few of the previous purchases, I won't.
    Each boot serves a purpose for the different conditions.

    These new Trango's are impressive. There was some minimal glue ick around the sole connection to the boot, but all and all, they are one of the best boots I have seen for quality and construction. They make the Salomon X alps look and feel like complete Chinese garbage.

    My first impressions of the Ice Cube was the stiffness and the lack of toe rocker. The stiffness is broadcast because of the lack of rocker. You start to walk and you are heel to tippy toe almost like a ski boot. Trying on the other boots while still keeping the Ice Cube on my right foot was interesting.. The Batura is a stiff boot and it has a similar feel of stiffness when walking in it. The Evo just initiates walking in it with it's rocker, as does the X Alp with even more rocker. You wouldn't think it would be a big deal until you start to stub the toe in your first few steps or going up any stairs. That extra 1/2" or so does make a bit of difference until your brain makes the correction.

    I was on the fence with getting the Trango, I called La Sportiva in Boulder and had a chance to speak with a Rep who has been in them this winter. The biggest concern we spoke about was the temps you could get away with wearing them in. He mentioned being stuck belaying and any standing around if there was any traffic jams on the mountain. Both great points he made. I asked him about warmth compared to the Nepal Evo's and he said they should be slightly warmer than the Evo's, though, La Sportiva doesn't have a temperature chart way to scale their boots to one another. That was really all I needed to hear.

    We also spoke about adding a -40 Below overboot with them, he thought that would be a great option to get more usability out of them throughout the year.
    When I called -40 Below I had a chance to speak with the owner there. He suggested either the Penguin or the K2 overboot. I am going to go with the K2, I will just use them as my gaiter and have extra warmth if things get cold and the snow deepens.

    The only things I can come up with that could be construed as a negative about the boots.. The lack of a pull loop on the heel for assisting in getting your foot into the boot and the lack of any toe rocker. The later, might not be an issue at all.

    The boot itself is seamless. The quality is amazing and the weight is going to be heaven climbing in.

    It is really making me think about getting a pair of Trango Cubes when the Salomon X Alps bite it.

    From what I have written above.. Is it the boot that someone should get over purchasing a Nepal Evo? My feet haven't gotten cold on Rainer in the Evo's. If these are comparably as warm and you add an overboot if needed.. The only downside I can think of is that they aren't the tank of a boot that the Evo's are, which take a beating and just keep going. Calling the Evo's a tank of a boot also seems funny. A few years ago they were the lighter option for mountaineering during the summer over using the heavy plastic boots.

    Times are a changing and these lighter boots are super cool options to be able to choose from.

    I never thought I would have a quiver of boots to choose from.

    Impressed with the quality.

    Hey Robert,
    I will agree that they are slightly on the narrow side compared to the other boots I own from La Sportiva. But just slightly. I have a wide toe area and I have gone up a 1/2 size in all my boots from them. I have been wearing them more lately trying to break them in for our June Rainier climb. The thing that is weird about them is the lack of rocker. It makes for a weird walking gate.

    Used them on Rainier with the Snaggletooth crampons. We were standing around for hours in the snow on the lower mountain and I never had cold feet. If anything, my feet were sweating like pigs.

    When I knew the temps were going to be in the sub zero range I did switch over to the Batura boots for our summit climb. Even then my toes got a little chilled with how cold it was. I did bring the K2 overboots, but just figured I didn't want to mess with them in the dark on the way up.

    I will be using them throughout the summer on Hood, Baker and Rainier again.
