La Sportiva is proud to announce that the Sandstone GTX-XCR has won the prestigious Gear of the Year award for 2007 in Outside's annual Buyer's Guide.

“The Sandstone ages better than Mick Jagger,” says Outside editor Marcus Woolf. “After weeks of abuse, the midsole was as springy as on day one, while the rock-solid upper showed only the slightest (and most superficial) signs of wear.”

A low-cut light hiker with La Sportiva's Impact Brake System™, which increases traction while decreasing impact forces, the Sandstone features a gusseted, mesh-lined tongue for comfort and protection from trail debris. A Gore-Tex® XCR® lining ensures breathability and comfort in a multitude of conditions, while a toe cap made from a mixture of sand, glue and rubber provides lightweight protection. An arc of TPU plastic along the side of the shoe helps to maintain foot stability while transferring energy from heel to toe during flex.
