Spire GTX Hiking Shoe
Whether you're taking on rugged peak-bagging day hikes or fast-moving backpacking trips, the La Sportiva Spire GTX Hiking Shoe offers the performance, durability, and protection you need when you're exploring tough terrain. This versatile waterproof shoe features Gore-Tex Surround technology, which not only offers waterproof protection in the lining and upper, but delivers effective draining for multi-dimensional dryness on the trail. One of the only pitfalls of a waterproof shoe is that although waterproof membranes keep water out, they also keep water in when creek crossings and other mishaps leave them soaking wet from the inside. The Spire GTX solves this problem by incorporating aeration channels within the footbed and midsole, as well as drainage ports towards the bottom of the shoe, giving you a fully waterproof construction that continues to keep your feet dry when the unexpected happens.
With this shoe you'll be prepared for changing weather in more ways than one thanks to the Vibram XS Trek outsole, which provides dependable traction and grip on wet, dry, soft, and firm surfaces alike. The outsole also has an Impact Braking System to ensure control on technical downhills. The shoe itself is highly durable due to the abrasion-resistant mesh, and features Nano Cell 2.0 technology to deliver maximum breathability on grueling hikes in warmer weather.

Third time is not the charm.
- I returned this product before using it
- Runs large
First ordered in size 42 (9) as that is size I wear in athletic shoes. My feet were swimming in the Spire GTX. Returned for an 41.5 (8.5) which is the size I wear in dress shoes. Appeared to fit, but as I walked around I noticed heel slippage regardless of the thickness of socks. So I returned and ordered another pair in size 41 expecting this size to be perfect. Try them on with the socks I had on (dress socks) and I notice heel slippage. Put on athletic socks and my front little toes are cramped and, get ready for it, heel slippage. The cupped heel and inner material seems to serious design fault to me. I'm returning and will not be trying another pair. This was my first pair of La Sportiva shoes...
