La Sportiva G2 SM
The La Sportiva G2 SM is a lightweight, ultra-warm mountaineering boot for prolonged high-altitude missions in extreme cold temperatures. The La Sportive G2 SM features a double boot design, consisting of an abrasion-resistant Cordura gaiter with a taped and laminated water-resistant membrane, a mega insulated outer boot with a Boa closure and a polyethylene and EVA foam inner boot, a combination which provides the ultimate weather protection, abrasion resistance and warmth. Extra warmth comes from an air-injected rand in the gaiter, as well as through the use of fast-drying materials in the inner boots for extended wear over multiple days. The Vibram Matterhorn sole with Impact Brake Technology ensures grip and stability over solid ground, while the carbon fibre Honeycomb Tech insole makes for the ultimate rigidity in the lightest possible package. Climbing, walking or keeping warm – the G2 SM has got everything you need for high-elevation expeditions.

Impact Brake System
A proprietary technology in outsole design where the lugs of the soles are oriented in opposing slanted directions. This opposition increases braking power by an average of 20% and decreases impact forces by an average of 20%.
The most trusted name in the boot sole business, Vibram is an authentic mark of quality and an essential feature of any reliable mountain boot.
The Boa closure is a clever system of wire laces that are attached to a little wheel, which is used to tighten or loosen them without the hassle of standard laces. Ideal for use in cold temperatures, the Boa system allows you to achieve an all-over precise fit without pressure points, and is easy to adjust on the fly.
