You Pre-Order is prioritised (at no additional charge); meaning that, as soon as the product arrives with us, we can wrap it straight back up and get it sent out to you - it often never even hits the stock room shelves!


With Pre-Launch, the date when we expect to receive the product ourselves is still a little too hazy to be confident in accepting Pre-Orders.

So, instead, you can submit your email address against the item you are interested in and we will email you as soon as stock arrives on the system.

  • Approach Shoes - La Sportiva Xplorer

    A technical, all synthetic shoe that performs on the walk in and on the rock when you get to the crag.  Perfect for lower grade alpine style climbs and Via ferrata, the Xplorer's are set to become a real favourite with mountain guides and instructors.

    An all synthetic upper eliminates stretch and repels water while keeping the weight down. The Overwrap rand construction technology addresses edge roll issues by encapsulating the midsole in the rand construction, which lets you comfortably stand on smaller edges. The Vibram® X-Traction® outsole with Idro Grip compound combines lugs and edging platforms for walking and climbing performance. To-the-toe lacing allows you to easily adjust the fit for various end uses and a dual density midsole provides excellent cushion for long days and big objectives. An excellent tool for moving fast in the mountains or getting to the crag.
