Hiking to Everest Base Camp? You’re going to need the right pair of shoes for the job! The La Sportiva Tempesta GTX hiking shoe are lighter than boots, insanely comfortable and glide over rocks and stones and grip to boulders like a gecko on a wall.
I wore these all the way up on my 12 day Everest Base Camp trek and didn’t regret it. I didn’t get a single blister in these trekking shoes and found I could slip them on and off with ease.
They kept my feet really warm most of the way, but I’d highly recommend wearing a super dry, thick pair of socks up to Kala Patthar, especially in sub zero temperatures.
