The award-winning Men’s Core High GTX hiking boot combines La Sportiva’s mountain heritage with an innovative GORE-TEX technology to deliver lightweight (roughly 13.47 ounces per shoe) traction responsiveness and truly breathable waterproof protection.
One look at the synthetic upper of the Core High GTX and you know that this isn’t your average hiking boot. Innovative Nano Cell technology wraps the entire AirMesh synthetic upper in a supportive web that shrugs off abrasion hugs your foot and allows maximum breathability. This construction delivers out-of-the-box comfort and avoids the break-in period of traditional boots. The GORE-TEX Surround lining offers waterproof protection while helping to push warm air from the interior of the boot to help keep your feet cool and comfortable. A compression-molded EVA midsole provides underfoot comfort and TPU inserts aid in stabilization and support.
A Vibram Nano rubber outsole ensures on-trail durability and grants the boot excellent traction. La Sportiva’s Impact Brake System technology is employed to increase braking power by an average of 20% and decrease impact forces by an average of 20%.
Sold in pairs the La Sportiva Men’s Core High GTX hiking boot has a gender-specific fit and is available in a broad range of sizes (consult sizing chart for European conversions).
