The grippy, all-synthetic La Sportiva Xplorer Approach Shoes are designed to perform well on approach hikes as well as easier rock climbs and alpine climbs.

- REI refers to the men's version

An all synthetic upper eliminates stretch and repels water while keeping the weight down. The Overwrap rand construction technology addresses edge roll issues by encapsulating the midsole in the rand construction, which lets you comfortably stand on smaller edges. The Vibram X-Traction outsole with Idro Grip compound combines lugs and edging platforms for walking and climbing performance. To-the-toe lacing allows you to easily adjust the fit for various end uses and a dual density midsole provides excellent cushion for long days and big objectives. An excellent tool for moving fast in the mountains or getting to the crag.
