Product Features

The La Sportiva Sparkle boot, for women, is the lightest 4-buckle boot on the market, weighing just 1,245 grams (2.75 pounds) per boot in size 24. The boots feature 60-degree range of motion in touring mode, so a skier’s stride is limited more by ankle flexibility than by the Sparkle boots. The backbone of the Sparkle is carbon-reinforced Grilamid, and the shell and tongue are also Grilamid, which has excellent progressive flex. The award-winning Sparkle can drive wider backcountry skis without charging a weight tax, in the backcountry.

  • Grilamid shell and Pebax cuff
  • Carbon-reinforced Grilamid backbone
  • 4 Pegasus buckles® with optional power strap
  • EZ Thermo moldable liner
  • 3 preset forward lean options (10, 14, 18 degrees)
  • Vibram sole

"WOW!!!! Might be the best piece of outdoor gear I own!"
I bought these boots sight-unseen, no try-on from a friend's recommendation. I've just returned from skiing them in BC (Selkirk Mtn Lodge) and they outperformed all of my expectations. Skinning in them is a breeze - great on the steeps - they articulate like the mouth of a crocodile but are super stiff yet responsive on the downhill runs. Help guide your skis through all conditions effortlessly, even crud - fabulous, accurate, efficient transfer of energy to the ski but still super-light. I skied them hard on the downhill at Jackson Hole Mtn Resort in-bounds before the trip and was awe-struck by their performance. Pricing and customer service - fast shipping - great website - all fabulous at OMC Gear! Thanks!!

Yes, I would recommend this product.

"WOW!!!! Unbelievable lightweight, stable, well-fitting boot."
Boot has incredible articulation for uphill skinning. Super stable and plenty stiff for downhill - even in heavy crud. Fit can be a little tricky at first but with some effort and patience they feel like bedroom slippers - definitely recommend using the laces. Fabulous product!!!

Yes, I would recommend this product.
