Check: FOOTWEAR SIZE CHART - APPAREL and ACCESSORIES SIZE CHART Please note that as La Sportiva is selling technical products for specific outdoor activities, we always suggest to carefully try on any of our products before buying them. If this is not possible, we have to inform you that the correct size choice can change from style to style, even if they have exactly the same length in terms of cm/inch, depending on your foot features, internal volumes of the footwear and the many different last that La Sportiva uses in the shoe manufacturing process. We recommend you to use the same approach in choosing products from our apparel collection.
We weigh our shoes in half pair, sample size Men's 42 (US 9) and Women's 38 (US 7). Apparel weights is defined from our salesman samples in S/M for Women styles, in M/L size for Men.

We are not technical equipment and hardware producers so we are not able to suggest you specific brands and products to use with La Sportiva boots: hardware and technical equipment are constantly evolving and improving so we suggest you to ask for information to your local dealer. If you are not going to purchase your crampons and technical equipment by an outdoor shop with the proper help from the shop’ staff, we suggest you to buy crampons and technical equipment only after having tried and possibly tested it. On La Sportiva website you can find very detailed product sheets in which you can discover if our styles are full/half crampon compatible or not.

The thermal properties of a boot is one of the factors that are impossible to measure due to the fact that there is a subjective component of resistance to low temperature and the field of use is particularly delicate. In general, above 5000 metres most people require a double construction boot (shell + inner > models with double construction are marked on the product sheets).As for the lower altitudes (up to 5000 meters) the choice of footwear must be oriented according to the season and the weather condition of the moment.

Keep your shoes and boots out of extreme temperatures. Never leave your shoes in the trunk of a hot car or in the direct sunlight. If your shoes get wet, allow to air dry and do not use a heat source. Make sure to clean your shoes/boots after each use and re-treat as needed. Store footwear in a cool, dry location.

For general purpose waterproofing, we suggest Nikwax Aqueous Wax as this performs the best. Re-apply this product as necessary or after every use in severe conditions. Download del pdf warranty booklet
Wipe out the boots with a damp cloth after every use. Failure to condition the leather lining may void the warranty on the boots. If the lining is not maintained properly, dirt and salt from sweaty feet will pass into the lining and reduce the life expectancy of your boots. The salt from your sweat dries out the leather lining and causes it to deteriorate rapidly.
