Description

Climbing shoes may get you up the rock route you planned to climb at Joshua Tree, but they almost certainly won't get you to the route in the first place. So give your feet some protection and support on the hike in with an approach shoe like the La Sportiva Boulder X. It features the Vibram Idro-grip rubber sole, stickier than standard light hiking shoes, so you can scramble more securely across the slabs at the bottom of a climb, even when the rock is wet. La Sportiva added extra padding underfoot for long approaches and the exclusive Impact Brake System on the sole increase the comfort factor on long days.

Features:

  • High-cushion LaSpEVA layer above the 2mm polypropylene insole cushions the foot on long approaches
  • Mythos lacing system for a highly adaptable and custom fit
  • Ideal terrain: Approach and hiking on technical terrain requiring friction footwork

Specifications:

  • WEIGHT: 16.97 oz/ 481 g 
  • LAST: Boulder 
  • CONSTRUCTION: Board Lasted
  • UPPER: Leather 
  • LINING: Mesh (back half and tongue only)
  • INSOLE: 2mm Polyproylene/2mm EVA foam
  • MIDSOLE: Micropore EVA foam
  • SOLE: Vibram® Idro-Grip V-Smear™ with Impact Brake System™

Approach Shoe, Day Hiker, Through Hiker

The boulder-x is one of my favorites for so many reasons. This shoe is such a workhorse. Depending on how you plan to use this shoe you should size appropriately, but it excels at every category. Common choice of many through-hikers, it is stiff enough to support a heavy pack, sticky enough for wet trails and still lighter and just as durable as a pair of hiking boots. As an approach shoe I felt super confident hiking the trails to all of the local crags, and actually climbing in them with a full pack on long slab approaches. These are one of the best approach shoes on the market and make for a pretty good looking rugged sneaker for someone just looking to go on and off the trail.
