Dave's Boots

La Sportiva Makalu Style 238


Traditional design meets advanced technology in the Makalu. This classic leather mountaineering boot features a Skywalk® MPE sole to ensure stability and traction in rugged environments.

We used a burly 3.0mm Idro-Perwanger Roughout Leather upper for classic mountain boot performance and fit. This is a full steel shank boot that will accept an automatic crampon and kick steps in snow all day without a crampon if needed. Additionally, the protective Vibram® rubber rand adds excellent toe protection and the EZ rollerball hardware makes these boots easy to lace up.


• Ideal terrain: General mountaineering and heavy backpacking
