La Sportiva – G2 SM

Developed in collaboration with the Italian alpinist Simone Moro known for his winter ascents, Gashebrum 2 is an ultra-thermal, dual layer shoe for extreme mountaineering and for prolonged exposure to low temperatures.

The shoe provides maximum water resistance thanks to the lining used for the gaiter, the no wicking materials and the inner insulation package.  The Cordura® fabric guarantees abrasion resistance.  The bootie is made using quick dry materials and is therefore ideal for prolonged use in the mountains. Volumes and weight are kept at a minimum thanks to the Honeycomb Tech midsole in carbon fibre and the compact, high performance construction in true La Sportiva style. The inner shell uses the exclusive quick lacing BOA® system for maximum easy and a more precise fit. G2 represents the ideal completion of the La Sportiva high mountain line with its look deriving from the famous Olympus and Batura models. It is the ideal choice for mountaineering at 6000 and 7000 metres.
