La Sportiva’s crampon-ready outsole
The Glacier WLF provides grip on most surfaces through the crampon-ready Vibram Ice-New outsole. The small, upward extension in the toe area protects against accidental bumps. The undercut heel renders braking ability.
Its profile also includes widely-spaced, aggressive lugs to facilitate muck removal and create stability on bumpy terrain.
Glacier WLF’s durable midsole
This high-cut boot comes equipped with a polyurethane (PU) Aircushion midsole. It absorbs negative ground impacts and provides durable cushioning. The heel area has a dual-density rubber which maximizes shock absorption upon ground contact.
Atop the midsole is an 8 mm mountain flex insole. It has a 1.5 mm half steel shank which is coated with Dacromet. This water-based coating makes the insole resistant to heat. It also gives stability to users when tackling uneven surfaces.
Glacier WLF from La Sportiva carries a sturdy leather upper
The upper of the La Sportiva Glacier WLF has an abrasion-resistant 3 mm Idro-Perwanger roughout leather. This Italian-made leather offers breathability and water resistance. It has a Dry-Best lining which wicks away moisture from the inside, promoting comfort.
