Trango Tech GTX Mountaineering Boot

The La Sportiva Trango Tech GTX Mountaineering Boot bridges the gap between backpacking and mountaineering for a boot that can confidently tackle all types of terrain. Its low profile sole and midsole allow technical footwork and edging capability when climbing easier graded routes while offering semi-automatic crampon compatibility for glacier travel. The waterproof uppers and Gore-Tex membrane keep your feet dry and protected across mountainous terrain and the gusset free tongue construction increases comfort for long miles on the trail. Additionally, the Trango features a 3D Flex system that promotes precise support on rough terrain and a to-the-toe lacing system that delivers a precise fit for enhanced control that's appreciated whether you're climbing a new route or traversing technical terrain.

Rigid + Cushioned + Light = Bravo!

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: True to size
  • Size Bought: 45

I'm a hiking guide in southern Utah canyon country. I wear a Euro size 45 in most boots (La Sportiva, Salewa, Asolo), and a Euro size 45.5 in Scarpas. I require boots that are notably rigid from heel to toe, because they prevent my feet from the constant bending that triggers plantar fasciitis. Yet I also need boots that have sufficient cushioning to allow me to hike long slickrock routes daily. I much prefer all-synthetic boots to leather or partially-leather boots. And, of course, I want my boots to be as light weight as possible. Previously, I relied on La Sportiva's Trango TRK. I was very happy with them, but they've been discontinued, so I switched to the Trango Tech. Opinion: It's excellent, and will be "my" boot as long as La Sportiva keeps it in production. The Techs are just as stiff as the TRKs, perhaps a bit more so. If anything, they might be slightly more cush. And they're exactly 1 ounce lighter (per pair, without insoles) than the TRKs. My size 45 Trango Techs weigh 2 lbs 13 oz, according to my scale. Sizing for the Trango Tech seems to be nearly identical to the Trango TRK. Perhaps the Techs are a smidge shorter (due to the angled toe box), but size 45 still works for me. Conclusion: If you're looking for that rare combination of lightweight + rigid + adequate cushioning, in an all-synthetic boot, for technical dayhiking, the La Sportiva Trango Tech might be your boot.

So far so good

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
  • Fit: True to size
  • Size Bought: 42

Bought these for anything where the Nepal Evo (or similar mountaineering boot) is not necessary. Aside from about 20 minutes on a class 1 hiking trail, wore these for the first time on Capitol Peak in Colorado (17 miles, 5,000+ feet vert and lots of heads up class 4). They are comfortable, and right out of the box performed extremely well everywhere from the fast paced approach to technical edging where it really counts. The break in period is minimal, however even though I didn't have to use moleskin/tape, I recommend at least having some with you if you're doing a long outing the first time using these.. Based on first impressions I strongly recommend this boot.

Regarding sizing, my climbing shoe size is 41.5, and bought these in a 42. I was wearing a moderately thick wool sock and the fit is pretty good. It's on the roomier side, however a 41.5 with this thick a sock would be too tight. If you are not planning on wearing a thicker sock and will not be using them in cold temps, you will probably be ok sticking with your true climbing shoe size.
