La Sportiva announced that for the first time in the brand’s history, it will offer wide sizing. Available in the Nucleo High II GTX and the Ultra Raptor Mid II GTX hiking boots initially, the new wide sizes will accompany traditional widths to appeal to a broader customer base.
Additionally, La Sportiva introduces the Aequilibrium line of lightweight, technical mountaineering boots, two new mountain running models, four new climbing shoes, and an expanded approach shoe lineup for an extensive new product offering available Spring 2021.
“For years we’ve believed that we could appeal to a broader North American audience by offering a wider fit in some models, particularly hiking boots,” said Jonathan Lantz, president of La Sportiva North America. “The new Nucleo High II GTX and the Ultra Raptor Mid II GTX hiking boots are the first two models and we expect that customers will appreciate the additional sizing options. La Sportiva has always appealed to core users and that will never change but by adjusting our sizing in some categories, we can give more customers the opportunity to experience our brand.”
Both the Nucleo High II GTX and the Ultra Raptor Mid II GTX hiking boots will be available in Spring 2021 in traditional sizes and a wide version.
