La Sportiva Nepal Evo GTX Description
The La Sportiva Nepal Evo GTX's are a revised and updated version of the popular classic, the La Sportiva Nepal Extreme's. These technical mountaineering boots are made for winter mountaineering and classic alpine climbing and are of course fully crampon compatible.
The Nepal Evo GTX's builds on the success of La Sportiva's older Nepal Extremes, with an enhanced design and all new features, which include a completely revised Evo sole unit. The full leather uppers feature the innovative “3D Flex System”, which is a multidirectional ankle section that incorporates an elastic anatomical snow cuff. This allows much better control and movement in the ankle when climbing without compromising overall support.
The fit has been improved too, with a new, more secure fit and more comfortable last. The sizing is also a little more generous than the older model Nepal's.
The removeable Ibi-Thermo footbed gives the boot exceptional insulation from the cold and this is combined with a Goretex® Duratherm® lining throughout the boot which protects and insulates your feet from extreme cold temperatures.
The new Evo sole features an IBS (Impact Brake System), developed in collaboration with Vibram®, which is designed to soften the impact on hard ground. The fit can also be customised using a removable ventilated tongue system, meaning that you can tailor the fit of the boots to suit you perfectly, or adjust the fit as you go for optimal comfort. There is also an 'EZ OUT' pull loop that allows for effortless unlocking of the lace lock. A full circumference rubber rand protects the upper from the unforgiving mountain environment, and the outer heel section is reinforced with a plastic bumper.
