La Sportiva G5
The La Sportiva G5 is an ultra technical waterproof boot with an innovative lacing system, high durability, and high-traction sole that make it suitable for extreme high-altitude mountaineering or rigorous working outdoors in cold temperatures.
The La Sportiva G5 utilises the innovative Boe Quick Lacing system that is faster, easier to use, and more effective than traditional laces by smartly adhering to your foot’s natural shape for a totally secure and customised fit, all at the turn of the knob. This system is also much simpler to use with gloves! Extremely durable military-grade Cordura makes up the inner and outer shells for a resilience that will keep your boot alive and kicking (literally) against the most severe and aggressive environments. Its carbon sole is more insulating, the Impact Braking System provides more traction, and the rear Flex Zone allows for greater mobility over rough terrain, making this the perfect shoe for all cold weather activities on snow and ice.

Boa Quick Lacing System
The Boa Closure System is faster, more comfortable, durable, lightweight, easier to use, and provides a tighter, more secure fit than traditional systems. A simple turn of the knob allows for a smooth, even closure with no uneven pressure points and no risk of the system being compromised. This system allows for greater fine-tuning than ever before. Perfect for use in cold temperatures and with hand-restricting gloves.
Impact Brake System
Absorbs negative ground impact, helps traction, and improves downhill grip, increasing braking power by an average of 20% and decreasing impact forces by an average of 20%. The unique position of the sole’s lugs are oriented in opposing and slanted directions, allowing as many of them as possible to come into contact with the ground over a variety of terrains leading to a better distribution of impact forces and increased grip.
Cordura is found in abundance throughout the outdoor world due to its outstanding durability and high resistance to abrasions and tears. It has been used by the military in World War II and is still used by them today in their backpacks, boots, and apparel, as well as in other applications like airplane upholstery. In short, if you want something to last, then make it from Cordura.
Worn by mountaineers, climbers, workers, and a host of other sport and professionals around the world, Vibram is an authentic and trusted mark of quality on the sole of any footwear bearing its logo. Started in 1937 by Vitale Bramani, Vibram has been on the soles of the Italian climbers who first conquered K2, and it has expanded its reach to all types of footwear to become one of the most worn brands in the globe.
Enhanced flexibility thanks to the Flex Zone at the back of the ankle, facilitates walking through rough terrain.
