La Sportiva Spectre 2.0

rated 4.0 of 5 stars
photo: La Sportiva Spectre 2.0 alpine touring boot

Finally tiring of heavy tele gear, I was looking for a decent boot for plodder level SkiMo events. Bought these used, and my feet and legs are happy at the end of the day.

Pros

  • Pretty low boot weight for price and age (these are +3 yo boots @ 2020)
  • Good range of motion
  • Nice looking

Cons

  • Buckle (4) design is a bit troublesome
  • Who actually needs the powerstrap (I removed mine)

I am very happy with the boot, and the overall build quality.  I feel La Sportiva is a top tier brand, and they are my preferred brand for footwear.

I found the powerstrap to be a nuisance. I removed it, and feel I have a better range of motion, and less shin-bash when loosend up.  

The buckles have a tendency to pop up/out when not tightened down hard.
