La Sportiva's radical new shoe, the Mistral, is an extremely comfortable high-performance slipper. It has all the benefits of a normal slipper (easy to put on & hugging fit) plus those of a traditional lace-up, since the Velcro tabs provide an extremely precise, tight fit.
Features include a neoprene inner (exclusive to La Sportiva), twin heel loops and a radical design.
The Mistral will prove to be a highly popular all-rounder, used on both easy and hard sports routes, in competitions and in the mountains.
The stitching is in the toe, thus guaranteeing a precise fit which does not stretch over time. This renders the Mistral as firm and precise as a lace-up.
The innovative feature on the Mistral is its Velcro fastening, which with its single elastic strap holds the inner firmly in place. As the neoprene is one-piece, there are no annoying problems about the tongues overlapping.
