User Review: La Sportiva Tibet GTX
Source: bought it new
Price Paid: $217
Do not miss it if you can find it from a forgotten stock.
- The leather is nubuck
- The size tends to be a little bigger than your actual one
Yes, it is off the production line, but is still on the market in Turkey, so when I see it on sale, I purchased a pair right away. I returned a brand new pair of Asolo Fugitives and got these.
The looks are a little old fashion, but when you put it on, one easily find out this is no ordinary backpacking boot. The outsole is rather stiff so it reflects this stiffness to the insole as well, I prefer somewhat softer insole feeling so I placed an additional pair of insoles inside.
I was in Croatia last week, after checking the weather I saw it was going be OK but I took em with me anyway to shorten the break-in period, etc. The weather was rather warm when I was there, during which time I wore the boots all the time and they breathed just fine thanks to their GTX lining, when the rain came, again my feet were all cozzy and dry. The outsole is Vibram. Ankle support is aggressive, locks your ankle tight.
My initial thoughts are all positive about them.
