La Sportiva Hyper Mid GTX
Here's what other sites are saying:
Ascend the mountain like lightening while wearing the La Sportiva Men's Hyper Mid GTX Hiking Boot. More like a shoe with the personality of a grizzled mountain man, this boot grips loose trails, fends off the weather, and moves with a sure-footedness typically found in a full-blown backpacking boot. Rather than leave your ankles exposed during your high-altitude scramble, the Hyper protects it with a mid-height upper that laces from the very top of the tongue all the way to the top of the toe. Although it might look a little unusual at first, the security offered by this design is unmatched. Over time the leather breaks in to match the contour of your foot, adding to the comfort. Mother Nature can be cruel to even the most well-prepared hiker, and this boot is ready for the foulest of weather. Just beneath the upper lies a Gore-Tex waterproof breathable membrane that keeps your foot bone-dry on wet trails or during torrential storms, all the while allowing sweaty moisture to escape from within. Toss a pack on your back, point yourself toward something steep, and dig into loose terrain and you'll be rewarded with ample grip from the Vibram outsole. With all that it has to offer, this boot weighs only a touch over one pound. La Sportiva makes two over mid-height boots of this ilk, the Xplorer Mid and the Boulder X Mid, but the Hyper is the definitive choice for three-season fastpacking or technical backpacking in questionable weather and steep terrain.

Mid cut leather approach boot created using innovative solutions for the construction of the uppers and sole/midsole system developed exclusively by La Sportiva for the approach category. The ergonomic shape of the boot is particularly precise thanks to the all round tension straps which neatly wrap around the midsole at front of the boot, promoting perfect distribution of tension. This construction system is derived from La Sportiva's know-how in the field of climbing shoes. The rubber toe protection is also inspired by the climbing world, using a construction method that creates continuity between edge and sole to enhance sensitivity during climbing. The EVA midsole incorporates a "Rock Guard"platform in the toe and a shock absorbing insert to facilitate ankle movements and avoid unnatural torsion. The Vibram Idrogrip sole has been developed with specific features for approach routes and is equipped with the Impact Brake System on the heel and on the inside of the boot, suction pads and climbing zone. The finest La Sportiva technology applied to the word of approach routes.
