rated 5 of 5 stars The best boots money can buy. Well worth every penny. I have wanted a pair of these hand crafted boots for decades. I have just come back from Paris, and while I was there I bumped into a shop that still sell these wonderful boots. I could not get the money fast enough out of my pocket to buy them. And now I am at home I put them on, and they fit perfectly. The workmanship has to be the best I have ever seen on a boot, be it full leather or any other material. I love these boots so much I have just… Full review

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Last a lifetime. They are perfection for what they are designed for — mountaineering. But they also work as a rugged all purpose boot. I bought mine in the early '70s for hiking, backpacking, mountaineering, general wear, on the job. Put them away in the '90s in favor of lighter "modern" boots, which I've been very disappointed in. Just dug them out of the "archives" and they are like I never left them. Full review

rated 5 of 5 stars Bought my pair in early '70s for $52 in San Diego. They are exceptional mountaineering boots. I have no idea how many total miles since then. Great for off-trail and heavy packs.

They are sturdy, comfortable and yes, heavy, compared to today's standards. There is some break-in needed. Leather will generally… Full review

rated 5 of 5 stars I have had these boots more than 40 years. When people tell you they last they are telling you the truth. I have had these Super Guides resoled three times. Rebuilt once. My only regret is I let them talk me into using 3/4 shank instead of full shank. Consequently they aren't as good in vertical rough terrain as they used to be. I coated them with Snow Seal when they were brand new and numerous times since then. My feet have never been wet in these boots.  I have different size feet and was lucky… Full review

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
