The FC Eco 3.0 GTX from La Sportiva is a mid-height lightweight hiking boot designed for day hikes and backpacking with light to moderate loads. At 527 grams per pair their weight is on par with many low-cut light hiking shoes, making them a good choice for those who want the light weight and flexibility of a low-cut hiker combined with the extra ankle support of a mid. A waterproof Gore-Tex lining provides insurance against summer storms, while the Vibram Eco-Step outsole is made with 30% recycled rubber. Ideal for hut-to-hut trips in New Hampshire and other lightweight adventures.Note that the FC Eco 3.0 GTX is built on European half sizes, which are smaller increments than US half sizes. This essentially adds four extra sizes per size run, so you can find the pefect fit. Refer to the size chart in the gray box above for US size conversions.

Good Solid Boot
My husband had a pair of these that lasted about 4(ish) years. Not bad considering how much wear he put on them. We had gotten him another boot/brand and while comfortable at first they made him long for the LaSportiva Eco GTX boot he had had. Got him another pair AND the same in a GTX shoe version and he is a most happy man again. Happy husband, happy hiking!
Attention geezers, a decent boot
This is a special needs review. I'm 71 and weigh only 10 lbs more than I did in high school, but my feet have grown from size 9.5 to, currently, 11.5 or 12. I have trouble finding boots that fit my wide forefoot and don't slide in the heel. These seem to fit the bill. Bought them 2 months ago and have worn them for about Read More...
Attention geezers, a decent bootThis is a special needs review. I'm 71 and weigh only 10 lbs more than I did in high school, but my feet have grown from size 9.5 to, currently, 11.5 or 12. I have trouble finding boots that fit my wide forefoot and don't slide in the heel. These seem to fit the bill. Bought them 2 months ago and have worn them for about 100 miles of day hiking. They are comfortable and have good traction. Don't yet know how they'll hold up over the years (don't know how I will either), but they seem sturdy. My only complaint is that the leading edge of the heels seemed to protrude a lot, and kept catching on things, almost tripping me. I whittled it down slightly, and now the problem seems to be solved.
