La Sportiva Shop

Climbers and boulderers have been relying on climbing shoes, approach shoes, and hiking boots by the tradtional Italian brand La Sportiva for over 80 years. If you are not sure which La Sportiva climbing shoes best suit your needs we recommend having a quick look at our climbing shoe buyer's guide!

La Sportiva Climbing Shoes

Climbing shoes by La Sportiva leave nothing to be desired, and the brand's large selection is sure to include a good fit for everyone. Unlike some other brands, La Sportiva offers a variety of women's models, like the Katana W, the Miura W, or the Mythos W. The La Sportiva Mythos is known as a classic among lace-up climbing shoes. The Mythos was conceived for longer outdoor climbs and is a good all-round climbing shoe. La Sportiva's high-end model Testarossa sports an extreme downturn and aggressive asymmetry, qualities that are preferred by those demanding the highest technical performance from their climbing shoes. VS models like the La Sportiva Miura VS are velcro versions of their lace-up counterparts. The La Sportiva Futura, La Sportiva Solution, La Sportiva Katana, and the La Sportiva Python also feature velcro fastenings.

La Sportiva Outdoor

Among La Sportiva's hiking and mountaineering boots the La Sportiva Nepal Evo reigns supreme. The highly technical Nepal Evo is crampon-ready and conceived to satisfy highest standards even in extreme conditions. La Sportiva backpacking boots are well-suited for putting large distances between yourself and civilisation, as well as being designed with the possibility of climbing in mind. Approach shoess are a prime choice for situations when the parking lot is not directly at the foot of the climb. The La Sportiva Boulder X is an excellent approach shoe.

La Sportiva Running Shoes

La Sportiva also makes specially designed running shoes. There are many women's models available in this category as well, for example the the Raptor W for cross-country and mountain running use.

La Sportiva: Sport made from Tradition

For over 80 years, La Sportiva has been making shoes for climbing, approach, ski touring and trail running. Where does the brand come from? And what does it stand for? Aside from shoes, what else can be found in its collection?

From the beginning, and with La Sportiva this goes back to the 1920s, Narciso Delladio spent a lot of time in his little leather and wood workshop. What Narciso certainly could not have anticipated back then is how popular the brand would become within the climbing, bouldering and Alpinist scene. In the early days, it represented wooden clogs and leather boots for loggers and farmers in the Fassa and Fiemme regions of the Italian Dolomites

Logo La Sportiva

As with many other footwear manufacturers, it is the reputation of quality superior craftsmanship which quickly breaks the regional boundaries and so it was with the small "Calzoleria Sportiva". Soon after the war, the reputation of the company's work, supported by an increasing number of employees, quickly spread to Trento and Bolzano, where today, in Tesero in the region of Ziano di Fiemme, the company headquarters can be found.

La Sportiva: A success story from the mountain world

In the 1950‘s La Sportiva popularity spreads even further. Francesco Delladio, the son and successor of the founder Narciso, goes beyond making not only boots and shoes for all kinds of outdoor activities, but extends the range to ski boots and more technical footwear, gradually achieving a leading position in the market. La Sportiva wins recognition firstly at the Milanese exhibition, where the brand is unveiled for new designs and sophisticated solutions and later becomes a well-known name throughout Europe

Right from the very start, the family has had a feel for footwear innovation. However what Narciso’s grandchildren along with resourceful shoemakers in the 80s and 90s pioneered, still stands – literally, today. La Sportiva’s climbing shoes helped the brand achieve tremendous recognition among the fast-growing climbing scene. Models such as the Mythos, Katana, Miura, Miage and Solution have helped climbers conquer rock walls since the 1980’s: Athletes worldwide from climbing greats such as Alexander Huber, Nalle Hukkataival to Adam Ondra have been wearing La Sportiva climbing shoes. La Sportiva is inextricably linked to the history of climbing and bouldering.

La Sportiva Shoes: From sandals to expedition boot

La Sportiva shoes can also be found just about everywhere else in the world of mountains – whether attached to crampons on a back country touring boots, expedition boots, hiking boots, approach shoes and even as an aggressive trail running shoe. – This traditional brand’s shoes prove themselves in both expeditions and spectacular first ascents, as well as for everyday wear, global travel or in the climbing and bouldering gym. Wherever superb workmanship, quality, fit performance or a sharp design play a role, La Sportiva shoes stand out – with comfort. Shoes such as the Mythos climbing shoe, the Nepal trekking boot, the Trango or the classic approach shoes Boulder X Fringe or Ganda are an indispensable part of the alpine world. Meanwhile, the traditional manufacturer also has a mountain trail-running collection that offers, among others, winter running shoes.

Whether it be a climber or any other mountain enthusiast that travels with the yellow and black logo, has already made a statement for themselves, however La Sportiva fashion statements don’t just stop at shoes. Today this vibrant label will deck you out from head to toe – a climbing hoody, a vibrant Trucker Cap or a colorful hybrid insulation jacket, are all in the range. The new climbing apparel collection wins with a combo of retro charm and pure functionality for the bouldering and climbing scene! What else would you expect from fashion-conscious Italians! The balancing act between modernity and tradition has been La Sportiva success in every category – it’ll be interesting to see what they come up with next!
