Superb ultra technical climbing and mountaineering boot for high altitude mountaineering to ca 5500m and for working outdoors in cold temperatures. A replacement for the Batura, but lighter feeling and even more comfortable, and, like the Batura, in our view suitable for winter climbing anywhere in Europe or North America and expedition use up to around 6000m maximum.

Superb ultra technical climbing and mountaineering boot for high altitude mountaineering to ca 5500m and for working outdoors in cold temperatures. A replacement for the Batura, but lighter feeling and even more comfortable, and, like the Batura, in our view suitable for winter climbing anywhere in Europe or North America and expedition use up to around 6000m maximum.

Quick and easy to fit, it features quick-drying materials. The rear flex zone facilitates walking on rough mountain terrain. Weather protection is maximised by the waterproof Cordura® gaiter with inner waterproof membrane and heat sealed zip with a Velcro zip cover.

Volume and weight are reduced to a minimum: the protective edge is made of a super lightweight material, PU TechLite™ while the midsole is made from Carbon insulation, Honey-Comb Tech 3mm.

The G5 has all the thermal insulation characteristics of a double shell boot but with the lightness and low volume of a single shell boot. 

  • Ease of fit and quick lacing system, even when wearing gloves, due to the Boa® lacing system (twist knob and cable) in the lower part of the shell and the velcro-strap at the anle meaning tension in both parts of the boot can be adjusted to suit walking or climbing. 
  • Enhanced flexibility thanks to the Flex Zone at the back of the ankle, facilitates walking over rough terrain.
  • Maximum water repellency due to the external Cordura gaiter with heat-sealed zip and Velcro cover and internal waterproof membrane.
Gaiter: protective outer shell consists of a Cordura® stretch, water-repellent and anti-abrasion + functional, stretch fabric + waterproof membrane.
Inner Shell: Four layer insulating structure: waterproof Cordura® + insulating felt + insulating polyethylene barrier + abrasion resistant, breathable mesh.
Lacing system: Velcro at the top, Boa quick lacing system at the bottom, external, waterproof zip.
Footbed: Carbon insulation, Honey-Comb Tech 3mm.
Midsole: 2mm Polyurethane with different thickness on the toe and heel for crampon compatibility.
Sole: Vibram® Matterhorn with Impact Brake System lugs and a good deep tread.
 
Please note that La Sportiva describe this boot as waterproof, however they have obviously not experienced Scottish slush at its deepest and wettest! The gaiter zip is not waterproof and prolonged walking in deep wet snow or fording streams may lead to wet feet. On the plus side though, it is amazingly comfortable.

Weight: ca 1.824g/pair (size 44).

Shoe/boot conversion sizes vary widely between manufacturers and even from one style to the next from the same manufacturer. The chart below is about as accurate as is possible to compile. To measure your foot length, stand on the floor with your weight on your foot and put a book against your heel and another against your longest toe. Now carefully remove your foot and measure the distance between the books in centimetres. Repeat for the other foot and then use the longest of the two measurements to work out your foot size.
