Here's what other sites are saying:
A crazy-strong all-leather design for year-round backpacking. Though not insulated, the Arete is supportive enough for light mountaineering and easier ice climbs. This is a pretty fab choice when you need one boot to handle a variety of demands. Rough-out leather is heavily treated with silicone and backed up by a waterproof Gore-Tex membrane. Vibram Vertige outsole is a classic mountain unit that boasts an aggressive tread pattern to latch onto treacherous terrain. Toe and heel ridges accept step-in crampon bails. Outsole is stiff enough to keep from popping out of a crampon. Rocker shape permits a natural (non-Frankenstein) stride onto mixed terrain. The size/color dropdown box refers to men's sizes.
