walking boots

La Sportiva FC ECO 3.0 GTX

This is a mid cut, lightweight “eco-friendly” hiking boot suitable for moderate bushwalking loads and day hikes.

Ecological design features: the upper is made from Nubuck Leather and 100% recycled nylon mesh, and the lining is a mix of Gore-Tex®/Dri-Lex® Bristol with 40% recycled nylon.

For further information, including details on working conditions, check here.

La Sportiva boots are widely available in stores around Australia. If your local doesn’t – as yet – stock the Eco you may want to suggest they get them in.
