User Review: Galibier Super Guide
Source: bought it new
Price Paid: $90
Best boots I ever owned for climbing, backpacking, working in the woods. Excellent foot support and all-day comfort.
- Extremly durable and comfortable.
- A bit heavy, but somehow I don't seem to notice the weight.
I bought a pair of Super Guides in 1970 for ice and snow climbing. I was still growing, sold them, and bought a pair of Super Pros with plastic caps to protect the toe when kicking steps in snow and ice. Extensive alpine climbing and working in the Alaska bush.
Unfortunately I outgrew them also, and didn't know you could still buy them! If you dry them in gentle heat to prevent mold, and keep the reasonable treated with a quality boot wax, the will last for decades.
Amazing comfort and support.
