The Ganda Shoe by La Sportiva is designed for long approaches and actual climbing/guiding. 

An ultra technical model that is built around the foot, with a special ergonomic construction (Ergonomic Concept) that makes this more like a boot than a shoe.  The upper molds to your feet in order to create a stable, secure shoe that creates the most "natural" contact point possible.

La Sportiva used a "wet white" tanning process with a special full grain leather that looks lighter and more flexible, and uses only eco-friendly products.

The insole and the mold conforms to the natural foot design giving you less fatigue over time and enhanced protection from roots, rocks and gnarly terrain.  The sole gives you a raised forward surface making smearing and stemming quite easy, since the shoe is already shaped for that position.

The price is a kicker, but the shoe literally becomes like a climbing shoe for your feet, BUT protects them, reduces fatigue and provides a very stable platform to hike, climb and trek your way to the ultimate summit.

    Comments about La Sportiva Ganda Shoe (Men's):

    "Ganda" is:

    A. A town in the Nagqu Prefecture in the Tibet Autonomous Region of China
    B. An ethnic group native to Buganda, a subnational kingdom within Uganda
    C. By far the most versatile shoe I have ever owned.
    D. All of the above

    If you answered D you were right but really the only answer that matters is C. I really cannot stress how versatile these shoes are. So far, I have:

    Climbed 5.8 trad
    Bouldered V3
    Free-ride Mountain biked
    Ordered a large Americano at Starbucks

    In all honesty, I feel a bit bad about putting the last one on there - I went through the drive through so the role of the shoe was limited.

    In all seriousness, the versatility of these shoes is amazing. Read more at

          The soles peel off prematurely. la sportiva does not provide return shipping labels and you will have to pay to have them shipped. they will not resole them either tho their description states multiple resoles.
