Heat Moldable Liner Important Instructions: 

La Sportiva recommends that you read the following instructions carefully before proceeding to heat mold your boot.  The company does not accept any responsibility for damage caused to third parties due to incorrect use of product.  La Sportiva recommends that heat molding is carried our at a specialist shop.

Steps to follow for the correct adaptation of the shoe to your foot: 

1) Turn on the oven and set to the ideal temperature of 130 degrees C.

2) Put the La Sportiva liner in the oven and leave to warm up for 10/12 minutes. 

3) Make sure the external boot shell is completely open and that it is kept at room temperature.

4) Insert the foot bed into the liner to determine the "top-cap" height within the boot.  Use a sock to help the foot slide easily into position.

5) Remove the liner from the oven and insert your foot.  Make sure that the underfoot seams present are not deformed.  Proceed as quickly as possible so that the lining does not cool down thus losing its properties.

6) Fasten the liner tightly.

7) Allow the foot to slip within the liner and the liner shell, keeping the gaiter open.  Be careful not to damage the liner in any way.

8) Make sure the heel is well positioned towards the back of the liner. 

9) Buckle the external shell with just sufficient adjustment in tension and set the boot aside until completely dry (about 10 minute) 

After Care: 

  • Remove the liner after every outing
  • Allow the boot to dry naturally, never by a heat source
  • Avoid over heating the liners.  Store in a cool dry place during the summer months
  • The liners can be hand washed in cold water

The Spantik is a very important boot for me in Alaska, the Himalaya and winter in the Cascades or Alps. It is not hard to find boots that climb as well (such as the Batura), or boots that are as warm (such as a million clunky boots you see in Everest photos), but what makes the Spantik special is it is both extremely warm AND climbs steep, technical terrain really well. For hard routes in really cold places, this combination is critical.

I purchased these boots for a technical climb up Liberty Ridge on Mt. Rainier. THESE BOOTS PERFORMED FANTASTIC! right out of the box. The route had a long approach on day 1 - Followed by mixed climbing on day 2, with a 3500 ft gain of steep ice on day 3. In all conditions they were excellent. These boots are warmer than most double boots. I used a thinner sock as a result on Rainier. I still had to dry the liners every night in my bag because they were wet. I purchased Spantiks with future colder climbs in mind(Alaska or The Andes).
