The La Sportiva Men’s Boulder X approach shoes features Vibram Idro-Grip sticky rubber, which stays sticky on every type of rock even when wet. Additional padding underfoot offer comfort for long approaches. The all-leather uppers and sticky rubber toe rands offer durable protection.
The Roughout leather upper is extremely durable and has double stitched seams for a long life span. A sticky slingshot rubber rand increases foot protection on rough and rocky surfaces, and eliminates stretch for a secure fit.
The Micropore midsole of the Boulder X is extremely dense but lightweight offering shock and energy absorption. Micropore is a microcellular rubber with a closed cell pattern that is highly durable and will not absorb water.
La Sportiva’s Boulder X uses their Impact Brake system, which reduces up to 20% of the impact forces acting on the feet, legs and back with each step while walking on hard ground. The impact forces are reduced due to the slanted and opposing angles of the lugs. The lugs actually deform upon impact to absorb some of the shock.
The Mythos lacing system, which extends down to the toe area, and wraps around the heel area, ensure a highly adaptable fit.
Sold in pairs, the La Sportiva Men’s Boulder X approach shoe is available in a broad range of sizes (consult sizing chart for European conversions).
