It can be tough to find a shoe that will perform well both hiking to your route, as well as scrambling up anything technical to get there, not to mention being able to actually perform while climbing. Lucky for you, there's the La Sportiva Men's Boulder X Mid GTX Approach Shoe. La Sportiva started with a durable leather upper to ensure that the shoe won't break down on you. A Gore Tex lining keeps your feet nice and dry, since you don't want to pull a wet foot out of your shoe when you roll up to start your climb. The Vibram sole with La Sportiva's Impact Brake System makes sure that you have a sure grip on your whole trek, no matter how many banana slugs you might accidentally step on. To keep these stiff enough to hike comfortably with a pack, La Sportiva made them board lasted.
