La Sportiva Hyper GTX

Colour: Carbon/Neon
Size: EU 41.5

The La Sportiva Hyper GTX Men's approach shoe is made from leather and features a waterproof Gore-Tex® Extended Comfort lining designed for use in moderate and warmer conditions, or for higher activity levels.

Taking inspiration from climbing shoe technology, the Hyper GTX features an all-round lacing system that fully wraps around the foot, providing a very snug fit. Other features taken from climbing shoe designs include a smooth area on the sole at the toe to create a climbing zone and a protective rubber toe cap.

Other features of note are the "Rock Guard" wedge of EVA in the midsole for impact protection combined with shock absorbing cushioning in the heel and extra support in the ankle to avoid torsion. The sole is made of sticky Vibram with the often seen Impact Brake System to assist with traction whilst retaining good shock absorption properties.

Overall a great approach shoe from La Sportiva and is well worth trying if you are after a particularly close and technical fitting approach shoe which will stand up to most terrain and weather conditions.

    The heel has no material / padding (Comfort lining, where?) verry hard. while you may expect this may need some braking in i did not expect the blisters i got from approach shoes. disappointed
    R&R 100% as always .

    Nice shoe, well made but I do have a worry. The heel padding is almost none existent and has a lip, which catches my socks. So I don’t believe it’ll be that long before it goes through and I end up with another pair of shoes with holes in the heels. Which makes them very uncomfortable to wear. With retail price £160 you’d think they’d make sure the shoe out lasts the sole but alas I believe not in this case.

    I tend to live in my approach shoes and these are excellent. Straight from the off very comfortable and supportive. Good customer service too.

    I am usually a uk10 or. 45 eu.
    In sportiva I have a 45.5 normally. These are very spacious in a 45 for me. I have about 15mm dead space at the end. Also I find the heal a bit rubby. They will need breaking in.
