Approach shoe in leather, designed for technical approach routes and offers innovative technical solutions with both the uppers and the sole/midsole system developed exclusively by La Sportiva for the Approach category.
The Gore tex lining guarantees a lightweight, waterproof and breathable boot, thanks also to the mesh uppers. The precise, ergonomic fit is achieved by using the all-around pullstrings which hug the 360° clinking to the lacing system via a series of hoops and high frequency reinforcements. This construction method derives from the know-how gained by La Sportiva in the climbing scenario. The protective rubber toe-cap also derives from the climbing shoe. The midsole “Rock Guard” wedge contains a layer of EVA with an injected shock absorbing cushion at the heel and offers enhanced support to the ankle to avoid torsion of the foot.The Idrogrip Vibram sole has been created according to the specific characteristics and contains graded zones: the climbing zone at the toe, lateral suction pads of various sizes and a shock absorbing cushion at the heel.The most innovative La Sportiva technology applied to approach shoes.

We have been using these shoes for several years, both my son and I, a shoe that for us does not need any introduction. Perfect dress for narrow foot as well as being soft and comfortable inside. I bought two pairs one for myself and one for my son, those for my son were perfect while those ordered for me had a problem. The left shoe was narrower and smaller than the right one, probably either the label inside the shoe was wrong or a manufacturing problem of the upper. I reported the inconvenience and I made the return. Congratulations to the staff, very kind and helpful, after about 10 days I received the credit of the money since it is not carried out the exchange of goods.
Usiamo queste scarpe da diversi anni sia io che mio figlio, dunque una scarpa che per noi non ha bisogno di presentazioni. Veste perfetto per piede stretto oltre ad essere internamente morbida e comoda. Ho acquistato due paia uno per me e uno per mio figlio, quelle per mio figlio erano perfette mentre quelle ordinate per me avevano un problema. La scarpa sx era più stretta e più piccola di quella dx, probabilmente o l'etichetta interna alla scarpa era sbagliata o un problema di fabbricazione della tomaia. Ho segnalato l'inconveniente ed ho effettuato il reso. Complimenti allo staff, gentilissimo disponibile e cordiale, dopo circa 10 giorni ho ricevuto l'accredito dei soldi visto che non viene effettuato il cambio merce.
Fell a little small, so my tip: 1 / 2-1 order number larger.
The shoe has the makings of a favorite piece: He does everything with him, also because he looks decent.
The only drawback: The laces rub on easily and must be replaced by better ones. I think that's not bad.
Fiel etwas klein aus, deshalb mein Tipp: 1/2-1 Nummer größer bestellen.
Der Schuh hat das Zeug zum Lieblingsstück: Er macht alles mit, auch weil er dezent aussieht.
Einziger Nachteil: Die Schnürsenkel reiben sich leicht auf und müssen durch bessere ersetzt werden. Das finde ich aber nicht schlimm.
