La Sportiva Nepal Evo GTX Women’s

Guide Pick™: Melissa Arnot



The Evolution of the Nepal Extreme has taken hardcore mountaineering boots to another level. The addition of Gore-Tex Duratherm lining makes the boot completely waterproof and warmer for high altitudes and extreme cold along with a new breathable tongue for moisture management. With the addition of the patented 3-D flex ankle system hinge, an intergrated anatomical elastic snow gaiter and the 3.2mm silicone impregnated Idro-Perwanger Roughout Leather with sticky rubber rands the Nepal EVO will climb better than ever. The sole has a new tapered HP3 midsole with shock absorbing PU inserts under the heel and the ball of the foot, the new IBS (Impact Brake System) designed exclusively with Vibram to soften impact on hard ground and improve traction. The Women's model is built on a real women's last with a more flexible, graded midsole for better handling lighter body weights. The best single leather mountaineering boot just got better!

I bought my La Sportiva Nepal Evo GTX specifically for ice climbing. I initially bought my size a 38.5 but had to return it to get a half size larger which turned out very comfortable. My first outing with the boots it was 5 degrees F outside and my feet did get cold while standing belaying but each time I started moving my feet warmed up. I love the light weight as compared to plastic boots and the fit is so much better, women specific! I love how they handle in snow. I've been hiking in them and the ankle support is terrific. They are a great all around mountaineering boot and I am so glad I found them. You may need a warmer boot in very cold temps and do buy a 1/2 size larger. I would definitely recommend this boot.

Thanks for the excellent price offering and sizing advice from Whittaker, I got a pair of my first pair of La Sportiva boots and took it to a climbing trip at Mexico - Izta and Orizaba. La Sportiva Trango was way too narrow for me so this time I went half size up with a plus (39.5 plus). It turns out to be plenty roomy. Almost the kind of roominess I typically get from Asolo boots. I was able to wear wool liner and two pair of thick mountaineering socks and still have good space to wiggle my toes. No breaking was attempted till I landed my feet in the high hut at Izta. I didn't experience any discomfort/pain other than the stiffness expected from such boots. It was plenty warm throughout a two full day hike up from 12,800 ft to 15,700 ft and 17,000 ft up and down. However I did experience a cold feet on the subsequent Orizaba climb. It was a normal early morning start around 1:30 am. At 16,400 ft level, both feet (more so on the toes) started feeling a bit numb and stayed somewhat numb all the way close to the summit. Going downhill helped warm up the toes and I felt a tad itchiness. The weather was calm and temperature was ideal. I was not sure it was because of the three layers of socks or my own body effect but I was not prepared to experience the cold feet with this pair of boots. I didn't use the tongue insert that came with the boots. It looks and feels awful. I don't use insert in general. Overall I am pleased with the boots and consider it a good investment for climbing in the volcanoes. Not sure I could take it up to the volcanoes in Ecuador or Per.
