The 1445 gram La Sportiva Spectre is a boot that might sneak under your radar in the super-light touring boot category. Performance wise, it goes head-to-head with boots sporting far more excess weight. A four-buckle design, oversized power strap, and rock-solid walk/ski mode mean this boot can live up to the fresh legs it delivers after the climb. The boot is the lightest four-buckle option on the market, and also sports the greatest range of motion in walk mode. Here at the shop, we waited for some early fitment quirks to be worked out before bringing the Spectre in, and we think this year's revised last shape provides an awesome fit. If you're in the market for a serious touring boot to do it all on a modern setup, you've gotta check out the Spectre.
