The La Sportiva Boulder X is a versatile, technical approach shoe that works for both climbing and via ferrata.

With a toe box designed for cragging, and an extra grip sole that's perfect for via ferrata, the La Sportiva Boulder X is the ideal shoe for those who love multi-activities in the mountains. The new and improved Vibram sole design provides even greater grip while climbing or doing via ferrata, whilst the Impact Brake System offers enhanced braking power for descending routes. The soft 2mm EVA insert guarantees optimum anti shock properties, and full rubber rand offers maximum protection against abrasion while climbing.

La Sportiva Boulder X Great shoes.

I have had these shoes for about 2/3 weeks, I live in north Wales and they have been on the mountains most days, great kit, comfortable, rugged, flexible not strong, the only thing better than a new pair is an old pair.

Great all-round shoe

Shoes lasting well. Now 14 months I've been wearing them, mostly for scrambling, walking, biking and casual wear. Probably best all-round shoe I've had and are lasting well. Will get a couple more pairs when they are on special again and in my size. Not waterproof but don't care. Grip is fantastic. I went a half size smaller than my usual shoe which paid off as the snug fit is both comfortable and great for scrambling and climbing on Caithness sea cliffs and rock. My only bugbear is the laces don't seem to stay tied - not operator error I promise - but a double double knot seems to sort this out.
