The La Sportiva G5 is an extremely versatile mountaineering boot for alpine or winter climbing.
The mountaineering boots consist of an abrasion-resistant Cordura gaiter with a membrane and zip that will prevent your feet from getting wet. The inner boot is made up of 4 layers and consists of water-resistant Cordura, insulating and non-slip felt, polyethylene insulation and breathable mesh fabric. Thus, the boot is waterproof, breathable and provides warmth and comfort. As an alpine climbing boot, it is completely crampon compatible and can be used for ice climbing as well. In addition, the quick lacing BOA system will provide a secure fit and is easy to adjust. A hook and loop closure on the shaft adds to an overall feeling of stability. The TPU midsole and PU Antishock midsole ensure comfort when walking and provide plenty of cushioning. The 3mm honeycomb insole serves to insulate the shoe.
Finally, the Vibram Matterhorn outsole will master snow and rock beautifully and provide optimal traction on technical terrain. The boot also features the Impact Brake System, which serves to improve the breaking power on descents.
