Waterproof upper

This La Sportiva boot-type product features a synthetic QB3 waterproof fabric upper with Thermo Tech Injection. The latter refers to a thermoplastic material over-injected to the upper to reduce its overall weight and minimize seams. Moreover, the Gore-Tex Performance Comfort membrane lines the upper to provide both water protection and breathability.

Excellent ankle support

The La Sportiva Trango Tech GTX (men’s and women’s) uses the brand’s patented 3D Flex System. It allows the user’s ankle to move more freely without compromising support on uneven terrain. The boot’s front end is reinforced with a rand for added protection from bumps. Its ergonomic tongue gives comfort while preventing debris from entering the footgear.
