The La Sportiva Spectre was the best selling boot at the shop. And for good reason, it fits almost any foot size and is stiff and light. The updated version, the Spectre 2.0, is sure to beat it out. Already an impressively light, yet stiff, 4 buckle boot, the 2.0's have an additional five percent more stiffness thanks to additional strength added at the cuff pivot and back-calf area of the boot. This translates to a true 120 flex as compared to the originals. For the weight conscious tourers among us, these boots weigh in at 1445 grams/boot and have a 60 degree range of motion, making them some of the lightest and stiffest touring boots on the market. The cuff and tongue are made out of light and burly Grilamid, with a Pebax shell, and Vibram sole. Whatever uphill binding you have, these boots will fit it, including your older siblings ancient and heavy step-ins.
Boot Fitters Tip: The Spectre is the widest fitting boot on the market. If it does not feel wide when you first try it on it maybe because of the progressive shape of the boot and a footbed or footboard could pull you up into the widest part of the boot. The biggest issue with the Spectre in its first edition was that the cuff sections came together right where the liner seam produced a hard ridge. La Sportiva has fixed this issue with a whole new redesigned
