La Sportiva shoes: The mountains in your DNA
Why should you choose La Sportiva shoes? It's simple: For some years now, hiking has experienced an enormous upswing, even among younger people. The connection to nature, the quest for adventures in forests and mountains is greater than ever. In order to be able to practise your favourite sport sensibly, the right equipment is obligatory. Especially in the area of footwear, you should be equipped to move safely on uneven paths, mud and slippery stones.
And that brings us to the topic of La Sportiva shoes: The Italian cobbler Narciso Delladio had a vision when he designed his first shoes in the Dolomites in 1928: the best possible protection for the numerous workers who carried out their day's work in the impassable Alpine forests. In the meantime, however, it is impossible to imagine outdoor sports without La Sportiva shoes: the Italians are among the world's leading premium brands, especially in climbing, skiing and hiking.
What are the advantages of La Sportiva shoes?
First and foremost, La Sportiva shoes impress with their outstanding quality. The claim that only the best is good enough is also reflected in the slogan: "Innovation with passion". The big names in outdoor sports have long since recognised the advantages - for example, the strong climbers Adam Ondra, Paxti Usobiaga or the infamous "Huberbuam" swear by La Sportiva shoes. "The fit and the rubber are just right," Thomas Huber, who has relied on the South Tyrolean climbing shoes since he was 15 years old, once said about La Sportiva. But La Sportiva shoes are not only a top choice for climbing. The company also cuts an excellent figure in the field of mountain boots, trail running shoes and hiking boots.
Modern technologies in the sole area not only ensure optimal grip. They also provide maximum support for the foot, ensuring optimal cushioning. In addition, the upper materials used protect the foot from moisture and cold, even in wind and rain: The famous, waterproof GORE-TEX technology is used in the wide La Sportiva shoe range, which extends from light, mid-height hiking boots to mountain boots suitable for crampons.
What distinguishes La Sportiva shoes?
La Sportiva shoes are tailored exactly to your needs. In this chapter, we will explain which features particularly distinguish the brand's premium outdoor shoes. Let's start with the trail running shoes from La Sportiva. These are specially designed for mountain runners. Accordingly, they are designed for longer off-road distances and provide a particularly comfortable feeling. The GORE-TEX membrane is impressive on several levels: It is permanently waterproof, windproof and maximally breathable.
The sole also features a special technology: The Ortholite soles used are characterised by a special quality of padding that ensures ideal and comfortable comfort long after the shoe has been purchased. Foam made from recycled and resistant polyurethane foam also guarantees a perfect foot climate that prevents fungus and bad odours. Thanks to the durability, you can look forward to a shoe that will accompany you on your tours for a long time.
La Sportiva mid-high hiking shoes come with extravagant features. They are specially designed for hikers who are looking for a technical and lightweight product for access, hiking and via ferrata. The highly adhesive Vibram Megagrip sole made of extra robust and durable rubber ensures a secure grip. Patented lacing systems, on the other hand, make lacing up easier. In addition, the upper made of high-quality chamois or nubuck leather with a rubber protective edge offers maximum protection against wear and tear when climbing. Mountain lovers and long-distance hikers get their money's worth with the protective approach footwear from La Sportiva.
The higher-cut shoes are dedicated to those who are on the move with a heavy backpack and co. and are dependent on maximum stability. These La Sportiva shoes are also equipped with a GORE-TEX membrane to keep your feet dry at all times. Although the Approach footwear appears somewhat heavier and bulkier, it guarantees freedom of movement with simultaneous ankle protection as well as perfect volume regulation and foot wrapping. But that's not all.
La Sportiva also caters for winter hiking aficionados. Mountain boots with elastic, waterproof and robust gaiters equip you for your adventures in the snow. Thanks to the cushioning midsole, your feet will always remain relaxed and pleasantly cushioned, even during longer climbing sessions. The Megagrip tread outsole also has a heel brake that ensures a reliable descent.
