La Sportiva is a market leader in adventure apparel, specialising in climbing shoes, mountain running shoes, mountaineering shoes, approach shoes and more. The company began in 1928 and has been fine tuning their designs ever since, making them a household name in the present day. La Sportiva shoes are known for their exceptional traction and durability, able to handle the toughest terrain.
If you are in the market for a pair of hiking boots, La Sportiva has many ranges to choose from. The La Sportiva TX5 GTX Men’s/Women’s Approach Boots are perfect for tackling difficult hiking terrain. Described as ideal for backpackers or frequent hikers. This boot is designed for comfort, with soft Nubuck uppers, as well as a ventilated lining to prevent your feet from overheating. These shoes are also waterproof, which is handy if the track is a bit wet or if you need to cross a stream at some point. Traction is ensured by the grippy MegaGrip compound and Impact Brake System. In laymans terms, these shoes allow you to maintain traction on uphill climbs and traction on steep downhills to prevent a nasty fall. If the terrain you are tackling is particularly rough, the high cuff design will prevent bits of stone or gravel from flicking up into your shoes. The women’s version has a slightly lower volume whilst the men’s is slightly higher. Once you’ve got your hands on a pair of hiking boots, all you’ll need is a quality hiking pack from Osprey and a pair of trekking poles from Leki.
If rock climbing is more your speed, then the La Sportiva Katana Climbing Shoes are a good place to start. These climbing shoes are designed for those who value both comfort and performance. Perfect for free climbing in particular! These shoes are great for technical climbs, keeping their shape over many hours of frequent use. They also allow for secure edging on the smallest of holds, thanks to stiff rubber sole. The front part doesn’t have any lining, which allows you to feel your way along as you go. The velcro straps help the shoe to fit perfectly to your foot. Get sorted for the rest of your climb by getting your hands on a La Sportiva chalk bag , Deuter Gravity Rope Sheet and the Deuter Gravity Climbing Backpack.
Trail Running Shoes
La Sportiva has a bunch of trail running shoes available for both men and women. These are a great choice for those who find themselves dealing with a variety of different terrain, from muddy paths to gravelly trails. The Bushido II Mountain Running Shoes are a great option for many reasons. With a FriXion compound sole, you can maintain a good grip over every surface. For comfort purposes, this shoe is extremely breathable with a comfortable heel fit. The EVA layer provides optimal cushioning and absorbs some of the impact whilst your run. Once you’ve got the shoes sorted, you may want to invest in a good sports drink bottle like the Camelbak 17oz (500ml) Quick Grip Chill Handheld Drink Bottle, which is especially designed for runners.
