User Review: La Sportiva Glacier
Materials: Full-grain leather, one piece upper
Use: off trail, light mountaineering
Break-in Period: 2 months
Price Paid: $180
These are great boots. None of the problems associated with the lesser Makalus. I broke these boots in for 2 months with frequent 1 mile walks. I spent 16 days in Alaska off trail and on glacier with these boots and they were amazing. With proper seal treatment, these boots were absolutely waterproof in low streams and deep snow. Plenty of rigidity for any type of terrain and a rigid enough for good kick steps. I have narrow feet and I had 0 blisters over the entire 16 days!! Great boot!
