    Details

    Lighten up your load, without sacrificing durability.

    Durable, supportive boots are a must when covering miles of rugged terrain with a heavy pack on your back, but overly heavy boots can take a toll on your feet and legs when you're walking upwards of 15 miles a day. Designed to save weight, without sacrificing the durability for which La Sportiva is known, the Trango TRK GTX Men's Boot is a solid choice for the weight-conscious backpacker that still wants a boot that will withstand heavy wear in mountain ranges as rugged as the Tetons, Beartooths, or North Cascades.

    An abrasion-resistant polyester mesh is supported by La Sportiva's TPU Thermo Tech Application reinforcements for bombproof durability, while rubber toe and heel rands protect against rocks, downed logs, and brush in those prone-to-wear areas. Behind the Trango's lightweight upper is a Gore-Tex Performance Comfort insert for waterproof and breathable protection for those days a mid-afternoon rainstorm catches you somewhere between the summit and camp. Sportiva even gave the Trango an aggressive Vibram Mulaz sole for rock-solid traction on surfaces ranging from packed dirt to gritty granite in the high alpine, and added a lightweight dual-density MEMlex midsole for extra comfort when exploring miles away from any trail, or well-established route.

    La Sportiva's Trango TRK GTX Boots Rock!

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: Euro 44 / US 11

    I'm just back from 40 miles of backpacking in Colorado's Weminuche and Rawah Wilderness areas. The Trango TRK GTX Boots performed flawlessly.

    After searching for months to replace my full leather/GTX Merrill Perimeter boots, I finally settled on these La Sportivas. They were the perfect balance of seamless fit, weight and support. I was also intrigued by the boot's combination of GORE-TEX® Performance Comfort bootie combined with La Sportiva's patented TPU Thermo Tech coating. The former is purported (by GORE-TEX) to "combine durable waterproofness and optimized breathability... an ideal solution for the widest range of outdoor activities and changing weather conditions". La Sportiva claims that their TPU Thermo Tech coating on the uppers adds durability while reducing overall weight.

    Before heading to the backcountry, I tested these boots on five, or so, humid, 95 deg x 3 mile walks around around Ada Hayden Lake in Ames, Iowa. My feet were warm (did I mention that it was humid and 95 deg F?) but the boots felt great and I my feet had no hot spots nor blisters.

    In Colorado, the boots performed even better. On our first two days we had to contend with wet snow on top of saturated, horse-trodden trails (there was no avoiding mud and puddles). My feet stayed completely dry. On another day, the Trango TRK's light weight, support and comfort helped me overcome 6 miles and 2000' of elevation gain in less than 3 hours. My feet were never fatigued after long days on mixed rock/dirt trails and, again, I had no hot spots / blisters.

    I'm looking forward to testing these boots on my next adventures. Highly recommended.

    4 seas. backpacking, light alpine style

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: 12 (45.5)

    I bought these in a pinch to climb 12,500' Mt. Morrison in the Sierra Nevada during winter when my Nepal Evo's were on loan to a friend. They actually worked well for that class 3 snow climb. I certainly was not frontpointing and wasn't kicking steps either. Slopes were up to 45 at times but snow was soft so it was easy to get purchase with my strap on crampons and these boots. My feet were fairly moist after the 6 hour approach to the base of the climb where we camped. Down camp booties were essential. The next morning they were mostly dry after using them as my pillow (the standard method I use on winter alpine climbs - works great!).

    Most of all, these things are really light! I got by with them on a winter climb, but the Trango S EVO's are really the right tool for that job. I am planning on using these to fill the niche between a summer hiking shoe and my Nepal Evo's. 4 season backpacking, 3 season scrambling up class 3 peaks (maybe, might stick to low top approach shoes for this purpose), maybe some shoulder season peak bagging when I expect snow and strap on crampons. In that sense, they are pretty niche. I suspect they would be a perfect backpacking boot for the PNW where rain is always possible and temps are cool. In the Sierra, I am concerned about the gore-tex liner causing my feet to sweat and blister up in summer conditions. Can't comment on that yet.

    I wear an 11.5 street size. I wear 45.5 in the Nepal's. I got these in a 45.5 and they fit perfect. They were SO comfortable right out of the box. Just wish they weren't so ugly!

    New lightweight kings!

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: Runs small
    • Size Bought: 46

    This is an entirely new high tech hiking boot from La Sportiva. The toe box is a bit taller which may allow for a half size down from their other boots (I ended up staying with size 46, same as Trango cubes, and Older Glaciers for me). I've been out for several short hikes up Tiger Mtn., 2k foot elev., 6 miles round trip. These guys are so light it's almost cheating,. The toe box is well protected in case your a rock kicker, will come in handy later as the snow melts in the higher elevations around here in the PACNW. Almost broken in out of the box, with excellent traction on loamy and root bound trail. I generally wear 11.5 in shoes, so you might want to size up a bit, I went with 46's (about a 12.5).
