La Sportiva Shoe Demo Night
at Cliffhanger Indoor Climbing Gym
We're holding a La Sportiva climbing shoe demo night at Cliffhanger Indoor Climbing Gym in Altona (Vic.) on Thursday 23 May. Gym-goers will get the chance to climb in La Sportiva's top climbing shoe models: La Sportiva Solution (men's and women's) and La Sportiva Otaki. Bogong Equipment will also be bringing other models for you to take a closer look at, as well as a selection of hard-to-find La Sportiva climbing apparel.
Of course, there will also be special on-the-night deals and other goodies.
EVENT DETAILS >>
These are among the best bushwalking boots we have seen. An extremely solid boot, everything about it is high quality: from the Vibram® sole to the microfibre inner, to the plush leather cuff. Made in a wide fit by premium boot maker Asolo, the Lagazuoi are boots you should consider if you're looking for a serious pack-carry bushwalking boot for walking in rugged terrain.

Red Chili Voltage
New from Red Chili, the Voltage is a performance bouldering and climbing shoe with aggressive downturn. The Red Chili Voltage marries downturn with flex. Unlike many Red Chili shoes, the Voltage uses Vibram® rubber (XS Grip), and two layers of it. This is a synthetic climbing shoe and is ideal for people with wide feet.

Bogong Equipment was founded in 1989. Everyone who works at Bogong Equipment is a climber, hiker, mountaineer or runner. We have first-hand experience in cragging, multiday bushwalking, alpine climbing and trail running. We use the gear we sell. That means, we can tell you how a product truly performs in the field. That's how we only select the best gear to stock our shelves.
Our stock room in our brick-and-mortar store on Little Bourke Street, in Melbourne, is filled with purpose-designed, technical equipment. With our vast selection of gear, it can be tricky to know where to begin. Especially if you don't know exactly what you're looking for. That's why we employ knowledgeable, experienced staff. We can help you get equipped for your remote trekking expedition, your ice-cap crossing, climbing your first peak or simply your next wander in the hills.
