Boots that breathe.

When the terrain is too tough for your go-to sandals and just the thought of stuffing your feet into a pair of stuffy leather boots makes you cringe, reach for the La Sportiva Women's Core High GTX Boots. Featuring Gore-Tex Surround technology, the Cores offer 360-degrees of breathability, leaving both the tops, sides, and bottoms of your feet cool when the trail turns hot and dusty. The AirMesh uppers only promote their overall breathability, while the Nano-Cell direct injection overlays wrap each foot for a natural and supportive feel on the trail. The EVA midsole cushions your feet over miles of rock-and root-strewn trails, while a TPU insert enhances their overall stability when the terrain turns steep and committing.

Still comfortable 7 hours later

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
  • Fit: True to size

I bought these the week before I hiked a 14-er. I barely broke them in a couple days before hiking. My feet and ankles were still feeling great after the full 7 hours of hiking, and getting back to the car. Would recommend!

I wore this shoe hiking 5 miles 3 times a week to get ready for an 8 mile trip. On the way back could hardly walk where the sides of the high top tubed my ankles. It happens when hiking on uneven ground. Took them this week to Sedona. The fist day I almost took them off and went barefooted it hurt so bad. My husband has the low top and loves them. I am waiting to here if I can take them back for the low top.
They are taking them back. Customer service you rock!
