The Spectre is back and better than ever in its second generation featuring a higher volume fit, especially around the top of the foot!
An alpine touring boot with the full wrap feel of a four buckle boot, feather light, and packed with La Sportiva‚s innovative design functions, the Spectre takes its place as the lightest four-buckle boot on the market. But the most impressive design feature is the price, a top of the line boot at an incredible price. At 1445 grams this boot still has all the comforts of a bigger AT ski boot and powerful energy transfer to match. The buckles are placed high on the boot coupled with a Vibram rocker sole for boot packing through the nastiest ridge lines and boulder fields. La Sportiva has been innovating footwear for decades and they continue to deliver in the backcountry world.

I have been testing my new Sportiva Spectre for a month now. So far it has delivered on the promise. Lightweight, good fit, great performance for an AT boot. The fit is little tight on top of the foot and may require boot fitting. Overall, I think this boot is a top contender in the AT world at a great price! Thanks la Sportiva, great job CCBC!
I haven't tried every four buckle touring boot, nor have I tried every ice cream in the world, but I figure Cookie Dough is reasonably the best... just like I believe the Spectre to be the best four buckle touring boot.
Super light! 3.14oz per boot for my 28.5
60 degrees of "I can't believe how this this is" cuff rotation
Customization (micro adjustments, toebox, foreward leans, ect)
Rockered sole/toe makes walking extra normal
Vibram sole kicks butt!
Nice and wide for those w/ normal feet.
Sometimes the latches can flip loose wHile touring, but this is an easy fix once you micro adjust the buckles to proper tightness when not flipped closed... this is VERY nit picky.
I loooOOOooOOOoove this boot!
