The Spantik is a much more comfortable alternative to technical plastic mountaineering boots and is just as capable. La Sportiva have created a very warm yet technically capable boot by using a double soft boot construction that has the comfort of summer boots with the full technical climbing attributes of stiff and heavier plastic boots.
The boffins at La Sportiva have designed a quick and easy way to lace the boots, a single lace is locked into place using an ingenious mechanism that eliminates knots and can be easily secured whilst wearing heavy gloves or mitts. The inner boot itself is a work of art, they are very different to the usual shapeless foam efforts often found in hard shell boots with well placed padding and supportive fabric overlays around the instep and ankle.
Like the outer boots they use a speed lacing system secured by a Velcro tab. This system is quick and easy to use and holds the lace tension securely. The inner can also be heated to achieve a true custom fit, just follow the instructions carefully! Whilst the inner and outer boots provide excellent insulation the majority of the cold is felt through the sole, as that's the bit that's in contact with the ground.
