the La Sportiva Trango Cube GTX features the signature ultralight Vibram "One" sole, a Thermo-Tech Injection™ moulding which not only reduces weight but removes areas for water and snow to penetrate the boot, and Thermoplastic Urethane hooks that are integrated within the boot's lightweight exoskeleton to remove the need for lace eyelets and shed further grams, all whilst maintaining a secure fit. Other features include a Gore-Tex® Performance Comfort lining for the greatest versatility across all weather conditions and the Impact Brake System™ to provide extra grip and traction on all terrains. This lightweight boot is for any mountaineer in need of a boot that loses grams without losing quality.

La Sportiva 'One' by Vibram®
Signature rubber designed exclusively for La Sportiva. Has a lower profile to reduce overall weight, with stickiness for rocks and the ability to shed snow and dirt. Designed specifically to work with La Sportiva's shoes.
Gore-Tex® Performance Comfort
Designed for moderate weather conditions, GORE-TEX® Performance Comfort balances waterproofness and breathability to provide protection in harsher conditions but still maintain comfort. Thanks to this balance, they are the ideal choice for the widest range of outdoor activities and changing weather conditions.
Seamless construction method that thermally fuses the different parts of the boot together, eliminating the need for stitching. This reduces the overall weight of the boot, as well removes areas for, and reduces the chance of, water and snow seeping in. The ideal choice for environments where boots are likely to be soaked or in wet conditions, like winter mountaineering through heavy snow or ice climbing.
Impact Brake System™
Absorbs negative ground impact, increases traction, and improves downhill grip as well as up. Created and developed by the R&D department at La Sportiva, the IBS uses unique positions of the sole’s lugs. Orienting the lugs in opposed and slanting direction allows as many of them as possible to come into contact with the ground at any one time for greater impact absorption and grip surface area, as well as increasing the shoe’s grip downhill. Ideal for high impact sports and fast downhill descents where traction is paramount.
