Super Guide

rated 4.5 of 5 stars I bought a very clean, low miles, used pair in '79 and they fit me like they were made expressly for my foot! I am not a real 'mountaineer' like some of you folks. l just used them strictly for backpacking in the San Gabriel-San Bernardino mountains in summer and wore them all winter as work and walk around in the snow when I lived up in the San Bernardino Mts at 7,500 ft. They were so confidence inspiring I gave them to a friend who really needs them and am now on the website drooling over a new… Full review


rated 5 of 5 stars Worked in an outdoor sports shop (Sun Cycle, Ashland, Oregon) in 1974 and bought a pair of Vercours for $57. Had a pair of Super Guides also. As a geologist, backpacker and climber I have owned more than a few pairs of boots. NOTHING surpassed Galibier products. They are COMFORTABLE out of the box, DURABLE, and HIGH PERFORMANCE! Shell out the money and never buy another pair of boots in your life! Full review

Super Guide

rated 5 of 5 stars The boot of boots. Purchased new in Olympia, Washington, January 1976 for $125. (The monthly rent on my 2-bedroom apartment at the time was $135.) Broke them in doing garden work for four years. Broke the original wooden shanks and destroyed the midsole. Had them rebuilt with steel shanks about 1984. They have been resoled at least four or five (?) times, most recently December 2012. I use Obenauf's LP leather treatment ONLY, and have for over 30 years. They are waterPROOF. Three of us went up and… Full review

Super Rando

rated 5 of 5 stars Galibier boots are still available! Do you remember Galibier boots from the 1970s and '80s? They made classic mountaineering boots, full leather, with Norwegian welted soles. The Vercors were very popular as a general mountaineering boot, but were very stiff.  I had a pair of Randos which were less stiff and well suited to backpacking.  I researched them and found they are still made in France by Paraboot. The two models are the Super Guide and the Super Rando. I was able to order the Super Rando… Full review
