La Sportiva Olympus Mons Evo Boots - Unisex
One for the Himalaya, this superlight double boot features an insulated inner boot you can use for walking around base camp. The thermo-reflective outer boot layers on warmth, and a durable Cordura gaiter with Kevlar reinforcements lets you take it to extremely cold settings. Inside, a carbon fiber insole adds support, and closed-cell foam helps fend off the cold. EVA makes the midsole cushy, and TPU inserts ensure longevity. Reliable Vibram® PE rubber gives the sole plenty of traction, and the rubber rand protects the boot from wear-and-tear so you can tackle 8,000-meter peaks weekly.

Rubber on the toe and around the boot improves durability. It can also increase grip while scrambling.
Rigid boots with defined toe and heel welts can use compatible step-in crampons or any other type of crampon. Rigid boots with a heel welt but no toe welt can use hybrid crampons or strap-on crampons. Semi-rigid boots can use strap-on crampons only.
