The long awaited updated La Sportiva Olympus Mons 'Cube' has arrived.
At just 1226gms per boot (size 44), it provides incredible warmth for a jaw-droppingly low weight. We compared it to one of the original Olympus Mons and it's 34% lighter!
If you are going somewhere really cold, for example to 8000m, Alaska or Antarctica, or perhaps you're 'future proofing' your footwear choice with your sights currently set on lower peaks, then you might consider this boot.
It represents the cutting edge of high-altitude boot technology and is much less bulky than previous versions, yet the outsole is made from a more durable rubber compound (meaning it's less likely to get trashed on scree/rock). That said, this is an extremely refined piece of kit, which you will need to look after carefully if you want it to last multiple expeditions.
