Show Description

Ultra technical boots for dynamic winter environments and high-altitude mountain routes. Their weather protection is maximized with a water-resistant Cordura® gaiter, heat sealed zip, Velcro cover and an inner water-resistant membrane. The rear flex zone aids walking on any type of terrain, and a Boa ratcheting cable lets you make fast, precise adjustments for comfort or accurate foot placements. To keep both volume and weight low, the protective edges are made of a super-light polyurethane TechLite™ while the midsole is insulating honey-combed carbon. All-in-all, the La Sportiva G5 brings together the warmth and security of a double-shell boot with the lightness and agility of a single boot.

  • Outer gaiter with a stretch Cordura® water-resistant laminate provides exterior weatherproofness.
  • Water-resistant asymmetric zip with a Velcro closure flap for weather protection.
  • 4-layer inner boot consists of waterproof Cordura®, felt insulation, PE insulation plus abrasion-resistant inner mesh for dryness and warmth.
  • Insulated removable footbed.
  • Carbon fibre insole with reinforced honeycomb structure for an insulating air pocket.
  • PU midsole reduces weight while creating a rigid climbing platform.
  • PU TechLite™ rand, toe cap and heel counter provide full protection.
  • Vibram® Matterhorn lugged rubber outsole for cold weather traction and braking.
  • Step-in crampon compatible.
