Olympus Mons Evo
The Olympus Mons Evo is made for high altitudes and big mountains. Super insulated, this double boot combines a lightweight Vibram® PE outsole, reflective insoles and dual-density, ventilated foam liner to provide best-in-class insulation for your high altitude objectives.
This super lightweight double boot has a PE thermal insulating inner boot that is coupled with a thermo-reflective outer boot with an integrated gaiter. We used a super insulating lightweight PE outsole to keep the weight down and the TPU midsole is excellent for step-in crampon compatibility and stability on steep terrain.

Tips: La Sportiva recommends that you add one 1/2 size to your street shoe size. You should be able to slip one finger behind your heel when you are standing up with the boot unlaced and your toes touching the front. If the boot is too short, your toes will get smashed walking downhill. Too long and your heel will slide up and down and give you blisters.
