Nepal Cube GTX Mountaineering Boot

The La Sportiva Women's Nepal Cube GTX Mountaineering Boot was designed and built for long days spent on the glacier and early mornings climbing a combination of vertical ice and rock. This lightweight single boot is ideal for all but the world's highest peaks, and features a Gore-Tex Insulated Comfort insert for waterproof and breathable performance and cozy comfort in cold alpine climates.

The tough upper is composed of Sportiva's Idro-Perwanger leather upper, which is silicone-impregnated for added protection from moisture, and it's reinforced with a full-wrap rubber rand to protect the boot from front point shrapnel. Underfoot, the Nepal Cube is fitted with a low-profile Carbon Tech honeycomb insulated footbed to add warmth while still maintaining a stiff feel for secure climbing. The PU midsole with toe and heel welts accommodate step-in crampons, while the aggressive Vibram sole offers rock-solid traction during the approach to the glaciated flanks of your objective.

Heel popping goodness

I've owned multiple pairs of Nepal Cubes simply because they are the only women's mountaineering boot on the market. It is still difficult to fine my right size (37.5), so I ended up with a pair of 38s (after slipping around in 39s for 2 years and losing multiple toenails to a 37). Overall the boot works and is durable, as I've been using my current pair for the last 4 years. My biggest gripe is that no matter what modifications I make, I can't seem to get it so my heel isn't sliding around and popping out every time I use my front points. I wish they had a double version of this boot with a boa system so I could make sure my shoelaces stay tight through the whole climb. I also wish they were warmer, as my feet inevitably go numb every time I'm out. At the end of the day, I guess I should be thankful there is one women's option, but this is a pretty basic boot and doesn't offer as much warmth or security as I want.

Excellent Ice Climbing Boot

I purchased these boots for a summer job as an ice climbing guide on a glacier in Alaska, and they never failed to impress me. I never worried about the waterproofing failing, and the full shank design with heel and toe bail worked well with any pair of crampons for an excellent climbing experience. I would choose a lighter shoe for extended glacier trekking, but for climbing, these win!
