La Sportiva's Karakorum is the best in women's mountaineering and backpacking boots. The 2.8 leather uppers can withstand years of abuse and the aggressive Vibram sole, with semi-automatic crampon attachment, makes alpine climbing a breeze. Easy flex and faster break in period are promoted with the multi-directional 3D flex hinge, making this boot perfect for nols and outward bound courses.
These tough Karakorum mountaineering boots from La Sportiva supply plenty of heavy-duty support for extended hauls and have the added bonus of crampon compatibility. Uppers feature 2.8mm Idro-Perwanger silicone-impregnated roughout leather, which is highly water-resistant, breathable and extremely abrasion resistant. Vibram(R) rubber toe rands protect feet and uppers from bumps and abrasion; cuffs are reinforced with Cordura(R) nylon for increased longevity. Dry-Best(R) linings optimize moisture transfer away from feet with a system that includes Hydrofil(R) wicking nylon, keeping feet dry, cool and comfortable. 3D Flex(TM) ankle hinge system articulates for side-to-side flexibility and improved agility on uneven terrain; system also helps shorten break-in time. Polyurethane SBR Aircushion midsoles absorb shock and provide ample cushioning for long approaches. 8mm high-density nylon insoles with anti-torsion plates provide support underfoot for handling uneven terrain and heavy loads. Vibram Couloir rubber outsoles supply superb traction on rough terrain; compatible with hybrid crampons.
Blending a tough, weather resistant leather upper with a high-traction Vibram Couloir outsole makes the Karakorum boot from La Sportiva an ideal choice for serious all-season trekking. Your feet are protected within silicone-impregnated leather that is both water- and abrasion-resistant while grippy Vibram Couloir outsoles help you maintain balance and traction.
