With all the excitement on Friday we nearly overlooked the arrival on Friday of our newest La Sportiva hiking boots and trail running shoes.
For you hikers, we received the La Sportiva Cascade GTX, the FC 3.0 GTX, and the FC 1.1. All of these are excellent hiking boots. The Cascade GTX is a heavy-duty waterproof leather and fabric hiking boot for long days with a heavy pack; the FC 3.0 is a lightweight, versatile, flex-friendly, mid-height fabric and leather waterproof hiking boot for day hikes and moderate backpack loads. The FC 1.1 is a great-fitting, lightweight, breathable, multi-use, light hiking shoe.
For you trail runners, we received three men’s models and four women’s models so far. In men’s, we have the newest Crosslite, La Sportiva’s low profile neutral lightweight shoe with aggressive lugs for increased traction and cushioning. The Crosslite was a Runner’s World Best Buy after its review in October, 2008. We also have the Wildcat, a stable, neutral, and extremely well cushioned trail running shoe. And we have the newest Fireblade, a popular, low profile, neutral, lightweight extremely stable performance trainer with moderate pronation control.
In women’s La Sportiva trail running shoes, we received the Fireblade, Crosslite, Wildcat, and the Sonic, an extremely versatile neutral trail running shoe for lower volume feet.
Be sure to come in to see these La Sportiva shoes, or check the website. We should have these available for online purchase soon at Schnees.com
