What do you do when you need a comfortable, all-day touring boot that you can also use to climb your favorite technical ski-mountaineering objectives' You pull on the Women's Starlet Alpine Touring Boot from La Sportiva. The outer Grilamid shell is stiff enough to ski hard and hit big lines, but lightweight enough that you won't feel as if you're hauling cement blocks up every skintrack. A thermo-moldable Palau liner eliminates discomfort in the way of hot spots and chafing before they even have a chance to start. To help keep your toes warm on those frigid dawn patrols, La Sportiva added a removable WarmSole insert that helps avoid the loss of heat through the bottom of the boot. With its multiple forward-lean settings, you're sure to be able to find a configuration that makes your skiing comfortable. When you're front-pointing up a steep ice slope or traversing windblown ridges in the high alpine, the 68-degree cuff rotation and LazerGrip Outsoles provide excellent stability and traction.
Speed touring, randonee racing, or just shedding some pounds on your feet, are all possible with the La Sportiva Starlet boot. The women's specific shell and cuff, with 3 forward lean positions, can predictably push skis in and out of turns. The Skimo liner, when molded, can accommodate foot irregularities, and it's featherweight, in the up-track, make this Starlet a star.-- Grilamid(R) shell with PA12 Polyamide/Nylon cuff-- Features Skimo Liner with Palau(R) thermo-moldable EVA, a patented lacing system that allows for a custom fit, and built-in flex zones-- teel toe fittings are compatible with all Tech-style bindings-- Not compatible with plate style bindings; tech bindings only-- Highly durable 75 A" rubber toe and heel inserts
