It’s arrivederci and buongiorno time at La Sportiva as we wave goodbye to the much-loved Sparkle and welcome a brand new star this winter – the Vega.
This new freeride touring boot takes the best features of its predecessor (mega lightweight boot with 60° of motion) and gets rid of the not-so-good – aka the old fiddly buckles that have been replaced with new easy-to-operate alpine-style EZ-Tech buckles – hurrah! For just 1300g of weight you get a beefy 125 flex, making the Vega ideal for big mountain turn earners looking for bombproof performance in a lightweight, comfortable package.
It will set you back a few beans but you’ll be rocking a super-stylish boot laden with time-tested touring tech, including Vibram outsoles, fully customisable pre-moulded liners that go easy on your ankles, and La Sportiva’s Pebax Rnew bio-based EZ Flex Tongue for super-smooth striding.
Also available for men.
A durable dynamo with real downhill skiability.
