“This is the most comfortable approach shoe I have ever worn that also climbs like a champ. The Boulder X comes from a long history in the La Sportiva line up and this shoe improves and has built on its ancestry. The padding in this shoe is what puts it above its competitors. The Vibram® Idro-Grip rubber is some of the stickiest I have ever used in an approach shoe.” –Colorado Mountain School
