La Sportiva Trango Alp Gore-TexRRP £199.95, added Dec/2008, see all La Sportiva news & reviews
announcement by La Sportiva
A new entry in the Trango family: particularly recommended for alpinism, vie ferrata and alpine excursions, originally developed from one of our range's reference models, Trango S Evo, it differentiates itself for the type of soles used, for the upper's increased height and for the different lace-up system, made of High-Tec hardware.
They are possibly the ideal boots for a summer ascent of Mt. Blanc. They are also perfectly suited to high level trekking - great for the Chamonix-Zermatt Haute Route, one of the Alta Via or a GR route. The Gore-Tex lining means they happily cope with snow, ice, mud and rain.
Upper: perfect synthesis of leather and fabric, uniting structure and resistance over time. Gore-Tex® lining for maximum breathability and waterproofnees. The 3D Flex System multidirectional joint ensures ankle support and mobility in all directions. Lace-lock for a precise and personalized fit. New Vibram® sole with Impact Brake System technology which absorbs impact, helps during traction and holds while braking on any terrain even the most inaccessible. Protective toe cap in front and Newmatic crampon compatible.
