User Review: La Sportiva Men's Glacier
Materials: leather treated probably with some resin
Use: Exclusively for very long glacial walks and easy snow/ice climbing.
Price Paid: 269 USD
These boots always start burning my feet after 4-5 hours of use. I walk the North Cascades, primarily Mt. Baker area. Last week I climbed Baker at night using the Coleman route and had to remove them twice to ventilate my feet and change the completely wet socks on the glacier and on the summit! The boots simply contain all the moisture from sweating inside like a rubber boot. I experimented with 6 different combinations of socks during the last 2 years but have not found the solution.
The boots are durable, have a good grip and foot support, work well with my Grivels, are reasonably comfortable and absolutely waterproof but again, in my case, the time limit is 4-5 hours even in cold weather.
Maybe Sportiva Trango or Scarpa Triolet? They have GTex.
I will be grateful for comments.
