The La Sportiva Women's FC 3. 2 GTX Hiking Boot is lightweight yet supportive for backpacking with light to moderate loads. Gore Tex Extended Comfort gives this boot guaranteed waterproof protection that remains highly breathable for warmer weather. Nubuck leather keeps the FC 3. 2 strong, while mesh panels ensure ventilated airflow. A Dri Lex lining helps wick moisture and dry quickly to keep your feet comfortably dry. Underfoot, La Sportiva equipped the FC 3. 2 with a dual density EVA midsole made of recycled materials. There's also a LaSpEVA midsole for extra cush, and the TPU Shank ensures stability on a variety of terrain. Vibram's EcoStep sole uses partially recycled rubber for grip, and the Impact Brake System helps when you lose control on the downhill.
