Our View - La Sportiva Ultra Raptor II Mid GTX:
The La Sportiva Ultra Raptor II Mid GTX Ultra Raptor Mid II GTX is a mid-height fast and light hiking/trail running hybrid which doesn’t compromise in either conditions. The slightly higher cut compared to the shoe version of the Ultra Raptor Mountain Running icon, is ideal when you plan to be in rough, technical terrain for linger durations and potentially carrying light loads. The extra height provides that little extra protection and comfort.
Waterproof and breathable thanks to the Gore-Tex® Extended Comfort membrane. The soft Comfort Collar protects the ankle from the entry of stones or mud and integrates the easy-fit spoiler for maximum ease of fit.
The upper is in abrasion-resistant, breathable mesh fabric, perfect for use in all conditions. The rear stabilizing heel allows perfect control over the traverses. Perfect volume adjustment and foot hold thanks to the dedicated lacing elements means you will get a perfect fit every day. The TPU skeleton is especially important allowing the lace pull-force to be distributed equally over all areas of the upper.
The Ultra Raptor Mid II GTX is a great all round fast and light mountain boot and is also available in a wide-fit comfort version to accommodate different foot-volumes. See our alternative listing for details.
