    The perfect boot for the female alpinist foot.

    Today’s climb promises to be long, technical, and cold—the La Sportiva Women’s Nepal EVO GTX Mountaineering Boot is the footwear of choice. This heavy-duty leather boot features both lightweight insulation and a Gore-Tex waterproof breathable membrane to keep your feet protected in the big mountains. Not only does the Nepal EVO provide a contoured fit for any female foot, but the adjustable and removable tongue makes for quick fine tuning, and the EZ Roller hardware helps lock your foot in place. The lugged Vibram sole and rubber rands add durability for years worth of expeditions, and the sole’s Impact Brake System adds traction on ups, downs, and loose terrain.

    Great Boot!

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

    These are a great classic boot. So far they have been used ice climbing in Ouray, Co. The temperature was around 20 degrees F the entire time, and they were very warm! They were used with Grivel Air Tech crampons, and they worked great together. Love the lime greet color too!

    A key part of this boot is the tongue insert. For a skinny ankle, these keep your foot from slipping around and rubbing your skin raw. The insoles were a little flat, so my only addition was some insoles with arch support. The perfect boot!

    Pretty amazing.....

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
    • Fit: Runs small

    I have only used the boots once as we have had a run of warm weather in NH lately. I loved the boots. They fit pretty snug, I have wide feet but I ordered a half size larger and could wear two layers of socks with them. They stayed comfortable all the way on the ascent and I slipped into a frozen stream and the water didn't even touch them. Amazing waterproofing and my feet were warm the entire time. The only problem hit me on the descent. The ankle support in the boots started to give and dig in on my ankles. After ten miles both of my ankles were bruised and swollen from where they were digging in. I will test them out again when we get deeper snow. I might have to wrap the ankles and see how that works. Any advice would be welcome to fix the ankle support problem as I love every other feature of the boots.

    Pretty amazing.....

    Great Support

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

    Bought these to climb Mt. Hood in May. While we didn't get to the summit due to weather I loved these boots. They are supportive, comfortable, and warm! I like the tongue inserts to help fine tune the sizing to my feet. I wore these boots for the majority of 3 days with no break in period and I did not get any hot spots or blisters. I wear a size 9 running shoe and bought the 41 to accommodate thick socks. The tongue inserts help with fitting and added some warmth. Excited to use these again!

    Great Support

    Tried and True

    • Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share
    • Fit: True to size

    Gave as a gift and she had this to say!
    Couldnt have asked for a better boot! Comfortable for long approaches, keeps your foot warm , and offers great support for technical ice climbing. Wore them from 4am until 6pm for 4 days in a row, and have no complaints. Cant wait to use these bad boys in the next ice season!

    Love them!!

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

    Got this boot primarily for climbing waterfall ice. The fit is true to size (I just used my running shoe size and found the European conversion on the chart) and is very supportive. Warm and all around a well made boot. Very pleased so far and hope to get many years of climbing out of these!

    wet snow, warm feet

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

    I just got back from a week of late-spring mountaineering in the Oregon Cascades where the Nepals worked great. We were camping and traveling in wet snow the whole week and we got a daily minimum of three hours of rain but these boots held up wonderfully. My feet didn?t get wet until the third or fourth day of the trip and even when they started to soak through they kept me warm. I bought these boots second hand and didn?t do anything with them to see how they?d hold up so I?m sure if I had gotten them new or spent some time re-waterproofing them they would have performed even better.

    Initially, I was a little concerned about the sizing because the lace system is designed to pinch off where the top of your foot meets your ankle and I found that they would start to cut of circulation to my feet. After I played around with them a little, though, it started to work out very nicely and I never had any problems with numbness when I was using them. Also, because of that lacing design the Nepals allow you to adjust how tight or loose you want the ankle support to be while actually locking your foot in place so you don?t have to worry about toe-bang when you?re kicking steps or descending.

    Overall, these are a great shoulder-season mountaineering boot that give you good stiffness, the perfect amount of insulation for warmer snow camping, and a respectable amount of waterproofing.

    Love these

    Thank you to Ivan Mercado for the recommendation! I imagined these boots to be uncomfortable and clunky. Quite the opposite. Fits true to size, is light and totally comfortable. Can't wait to romp up Rainier in these

    Great Climbing Boot and Stylish Too!

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

    Bought these for a Mt. Rainier Climb. They are great boots. I did get some hotspots on my heels but other than that no complaints. I do disagree with the one person who said "no break in needed." I did not find this to be the case. They kept my feet warm and comfortable. I was a bit concerned before I bought these because other reviewers were saying their feet got cold. I run cold but had not problems. Very comfy.

    Most amazing mountaineering boot

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

    These shoes are the best. I am a size 6-6.5 shoe and i had to go with a 38.5. So they run small but when you get the right fit they fit like a glove. Super light weight and comfy for a mountaineering boot. the Vibram sole allows you to stick to snow with just the boot no crampons or snowshoes needed. You can basically hike up anything in these. The grips on the bottom had different directions and heights for going uphill and downhill. Total power house! Amazing technology. way to go Sportiva

    Off to a great start!

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

    Recently received these and have worn them out a few times so far. The first day was a long one and these boots were so comfortable and at the end of the day I didn't have any hotspots or sore areas....literally no break in needed. Digging into snow and climbing slopes, no issue of cold feet or dampness. I find them super solid yet comfy. I sized up to allow for a second layer which also really helped to obliterate any toe smashing yet still a perfect fit in the heel. Practicing self arrests all day and frolicking around in feet were in heaven. My shoulders, well that's another story.

    Can't wait to keep testing them out.


      I have also been in the sizing dilemma until finally I was able to try one on. I am generally a 5.5-6 or 37 and have a more narrow foot (hence found Scarpa did not fit me). I found a La Sportiva 39 suited me best (could do a 38.5 but they are so hard to find!) However, I am going for the 39 because I inserted my own orthopedic foot bed, I like to be able to move my toes to keep them warm and the size allows me to wear two thick (not overly thick) socks if I want. The heel gave me a good snug fit.
      I got some good advice by the fitter. Your feet will swell not matter the temperature. Better to go a bit bigger than smaller as you can play around with socks and laces and the boots come with an extra pad that inserts over the top of your foot and ankle. It is important to have a really good heal fit that helps prevent forward foot movement no matter how much length you have or room you have for your toes.
      Well that's my opinion.

      Cold in 0F little activity conditions

        Size up if you don't want very cold toes ... especially if you happen to have long ones.
        I wear a US 8.5 or EU(DE) 39.5 usually. With my high arches (this boot is clearly not build for high arches, but you can leave this portion laced looser, and you can fix the laces above the arch and have the upper portion tighter), this translated to a 40.5 in these boots, which felt like the right length. However, when wearing middle thick merino socks over thin ski socks (the technical type, less thick than tennis socks) there was very little room in the toe box and the toes got very cold. With my narrow heel it is usually not a good idea to size up so I did not and spent a "refreshing" day ice climbing in 0F conditions, even with little wind. Can't imagine these doing well in extreme conditions unless you size up considerably with lots of extra insulation i.e. thick socks or maybe add an insole to reflect body heat. The cold seemed to be seeping in from the whole of the bottom/sole mainly, felt like standing on cold tiles. Don't think my high arches will be compatible with adding insoles but if you have flatter feet that may well work. Loved the narrow heel part. A less good fit for my feet but softer more padded and WAY warmer option was the Mad Rock "Alpinist" boot (men's size 8), no women's version as far as I know.

        On sizing and boot selection

          After painstaking research I chose this boot for climbing in Ecuador (over a double plastic). Happy to report that my shins and toes have felt great--worlds better than the beating my shins took in double plastics. People will give you mixed guidance on whether the boot is appropriate for that altitude (~19k ft)--my experience was good. My feet got a little chilly while standing and waiting up high, but warmed back up quickly.
          I typically wear a 9.5 or 10 and ordered a 42 in this boot.

          Great for ice and high-altitude climbs

            I have had this boot for two seasons now and have used them for ice climbing in the Northeast and mountain climbing in Peru. First, they are built on a womens last, so they are narrow in the heel and shug around the ankle, but have lots of room in the toe box. They are extremely warm so keep your feet warm when you are just standing around belaying. I have had no problems using them in lieu of a double boot for high altitude mountaineering. In extreme cold conditions, you could put a super gaitor over them. They are light enough so I used them as an approach boot to the glacier, so got a way without having to take two pair of boots. The lime green color is shockingly nice, too.

            Size notes

              Regarding size - I wear a women's 6.5 to 7 shoe give-or-take and after Googling the crap out of "Nepal EVO women's sizing" and not getting a whole lot of guidance, ordered a 38.5. The fit was too tight for anything beyond a liner sock, so I'm sending them back for a 39.0.

              I'm really nervous ordering, especially after reading this, but I'm a women't size 6.5. I've tried on these boots in a store a while ago and I know I asked for a 6 and a 6.5. The six (which would be a size 37) were slightly too small (I think... at least I'm worried about thicker socks with them) and the 6.5 was a little too big, but I was planning on thicker socks. If you're also a 6.5 in a 39.... hmmmm, I'm wondering if I'm way off on my ordering with these sizes! Why are women's ice climbing and mountaineering boots so hard to find?? Guess I'm going to risk it and try the 37 since that's all they carry in stock and hope they work.

              Good idea to include this information.
              For what it's worth, I wear a size 6.5 in street shoes and am a 38 in these. I wear mine with heavy mountaineering socks and a thinner liner and they're very comfortable. I could prbly go down to a 37.5 and still be comfortable, but they didn't have that size available when we were purchasing. Versatile boot: good for ice climbing and am always surprised at how well they edge.

              I wear a size 6 and most 37 mountaineering boots work beautifully for me, however I ordered these in a 38 and they seem to be fitting very well, they don't feel squeezed even after swelling. I use a liner and a medium weight merino wool sock.

              Did any of you purchase the size 37 boots and they didn't fit and want to sell them? I am looking for some but can not afford them at full price. Email me at if you have any you want to sell!!

              Hi, are the nepal evo gtx ok for mountains above 18000 ft ?? Any other la sportiva boots that could work ok for this altitude? Or any brand, I'm open to suggestions. It is my first time climbing volcanos this high so I want to make the right choice. Any advice will be more than welcome. Thanks in advance!

              Is the sizing for this boot the same as for the Women's La Sportiva Trango Cube GTX boot? I have a pair of those that fit great and wonder if I should order the same size in the Nepals.

              I am a size 6 in shoes sometimes a size 5.5 depending on the shoe. I am not able to try these boots out locally as no one carries them and I would like to avoid a return if possible. Does anyone have any idea what size I would be? I would be using this boot primarily for ice climbing. Also, what set of crampons work well with this boot? Again, for ice climbing! Thanks for the help in advance!

              my normal street shoes are usually 38-39

              but when i've tried these boots on in the store, the staff have put me in a size 42?!!!

              I can't believe that it really is 4ish sizes bigger than normal. that doesn't seem right. what am I doing wrong?

              The 42 seems enormous, like a clown shoe, but in the 41, when i toe-kick the ground, i stub my big toe after only 2-3 kicks... is there something i'm doing wrong?

              Best Answer

              HI Olivia,

              here are a few ideas. with mountaineering/ice climbing boots you want to size up a bit to keep your toes off the end for when you are kicking your front points in on vertical ice and to keep from smashing them while walking down from the summit. also having a bit more room is nice because your feet will stay warmer with the added wiggle room and maybe a thicker sock.

              so those reasons are probably why the folks at your local shop are putting you in a 42. but that does sound like a huge jump. one thing to try in the 41 you said you hit the end pretty easily is to get a thicker insole to move your foot up in the boot so that it holds your ankle better, if you have a really low volume foot this could be why even though you have sized up you are still hitting the end of the boot when you kick. you could also try wearing a ski sock that has cushioning on the shin to help give your ankle some volume so that the boot can hold your foot back.

              so maybe if you can try a 40 or 41 with those suggestions you will find the right size, good luck!

              Best Answer

              These boots are a very good alternative to plastics. They are very good for winter mountaineering and climbing. They are the most comfortable boot I have ever used. I use them for everything in the winter from technical climbing to long days hiking. Be careful doing over night trips, keep them warm so they do not freeze.

              I"m planning a trip to Mt. Elbrus next summer. I tend to have problems with my feet getting cold easily. Would you say that these boots would be a good choice for this summer trip or is there another La Sportiva boot that you would recommend?

              No, I would not use those. I own them in men's and would only use them for vertical ice and a 3 day mountaineering trip. Any trip longer than that and it will be impossible to dry them out, and since you already get cold feet I would recommend getting a boot with a removable liner so you can dry them in your sleeping bag when you sleep. Go with a double plastic boot since they will keep your feet the warmest for the price.
