As the female version of the Sideral boot, the La Sportiva Starlet is an all-day ski mountaineering boot that is perfect for light and fast tours. Using decades of experience in footwear design, La Sportiva packed tons of patented innovations into these comfortable and functional skimo boots. After enjoying 68° degrees of ankle movement while racing to the top carrying only 1040 grams (2lb 4.7oz) per foot [size 25], you will be pleasantly surprised by the control offered by the Vertebra Technology™ backbone. Made of carbon reinforced PA12 Nylon, the vertebra transfers power like an exoskeleton down to your ski. And you'll be off in a hurry thanks to the one-motion Cam Closure System™ that locks the boot into ski mode with a flip of the top buckle. Best of all, with a comfortable last, flex zones in the tongue and liners, and insulated insoles, you can repeat these steps all day without getting cranky feet.
The boot comes set with a 14º forward lean. Use a screwdriver to replace the lean plate with the 12º or 16º ones in the box to suit your preferences.
