The high cut collar protects the ankle and confers flexibility and stability for a full control of the support of the foot while the STB Control System™ provides further structure and torsion stability on traverse routes. The boot has a clean and simple design with waterproof features and breathability that are guaranteed by Gore-Tex. It guarantees high abrasion resistance thanks to the PU TechLite all-round rand the MegaGrip Vibram sole, which has a climbing zone at the toe and a rear Impact Brake System, making the boot ideal for climbing and return routes on technical terrain. The lacing system is derived from the Mythos climbing model and allows adjustment of the tension and the fit volumes in just one move.

A bit dubious as these were my first pair of la sportiva (usually buy scarpa) I'm really pleased with them. The fit is true to size and they are super comfy and perfect on rock. Very lightweight too. Good buy!
