Ideal for mixed rock and ice climbing as well as glacier travel, these insulated mountaineering boots persevere in difficult mountain conditions. Durable split-grain leather and Cordura® nylon uppers are flexible and abrasion resistant while maintaining ample support for heavier pack loads. Waterproof Gore-Tex® bootie construction with sealed seams prevents leakage; nylon linings disperse excess sweat for fast drying. Additional insulation layer extends comfort in cold conditions; gusseted tongues keep out debris. High rubber rand envelopes lower part of uppers for enhanced abrasion protection and additional grip when edging. Polyurethane midsoles absorb shock and provide durable cushioning for all-day approaches. Nylon midsole supports add torsional rigidity for a static crampon platform. Vibram® Expert rubber outsoles deliver stability when ascending and descending and are fully crampon-compatible.
Lowa designed the Cristallo Expert GTX Extreme Mountaineering Boot to provide you with unparalleled support and performance for mountaineering in the harshest conditions. The Expert GTX mountaineering boot is a warmer, more stable version of the popular Cristallo GTX, and is designed to be worn in the most intense climbing conditions. When you're slugging up that couloir, the Vibram Expert sole provides longitudinal stability and is crampon compatible for bomber traction. Gore-Tex lining gives you exceptional waterproof/breathable protection and exceptional insulation to keep your toes warm, dry, and comfortable and also on your feet. Lowa included burly, abrasion-resistant Cordura and 2.8mm split leather upper to stand up to the roughest alpine terrain. The extra-high rubber rand adds stability and increased weather and impact protection.
