User Review: La Sportiva Men's Glacier
Materials: leather, Gore-tex
Break-in Period: long time
Weight: fairly light
Price Paid: $220
These are great boots. I have a narrow, low, long foot and have a lot of problems with finding quality boots but these fit great. I put a hardcore pair of insoles in them and they are, so far, the most comfortable mountaineering boot Ive ever had. Great flat toe edge for mixed rock, a nice tall, but unrestrictive boot. I blew out my knee not too long ago and dropped my Norweigen welt Montrail Mazama for these lighter Gore-tex boots. Def. require a lengthy break in time as with all decent boots. Some flex, but overall a stiff boot,would imagine they would be painful on long stretches of vertical ice...but that's what a plastic boot is for anyways...
