For Spring 2019, La Sportiva introduces its most comprehensive collection of apparel yet. Spread across three categories for both men and women, the Climbing, Running, and Traverse collections all contain apparel designed to give mountain athletes their best shot at top performance. The Climbing and Running collections follow customer feedback for more compelling fit and colors while the Traverse collection features unique styles designed for alpine climbing and hiking, featuring synthetic materials and trim, and functional silhouettes.
“La Sportiva’s focus on apparel as a tool for performance in the mountains has improved each year and the Spring 2019 collection is our best yet,” says Jonathan Lantz, president of La Sportiva North America. “We have built an excellent apparel R&D team in-house and the results are apparent in this year’s offering. The colors are on trend, the fit has been adjusted to cater to more athletes, and no detail has been overlooked. Our customers will have a lot to be happy with in Spring 2019.
