The La Sportiva Batura 2.0 is likely the most talked about boot on the market. La Sportiva has labeled this boot the 2.0 version, though it is technically the third iteration of the boot. This newest, latest version is truly a 2.0 as it involves major improvements over the previous two version. The Batura 2.0 GTX is a highly evolved and tested super-gaiter boot made from top-shelf materials.
La Sportiva has discontinued the Batura. You may still be able to find it discounted on some online retailers.
The Batura 2.0 wins our Editors' Choice award because it climbs ice, rock, and mixed amazingly well, while keeping you warm and dry. Not only does it do all of this, but it weighs less than any of our other super-gaiter boots. The Batura is a game changer for pushing the limits of light and fast alpinism in mountain ranges around the world.
