User Review: La Sportiva Makalu
Use: Rough trail/ heavy pack
Break-in Period: 3 or 4 trips
Price Paid: $235 US
These are very good boots. I used the same pair for 5 years now. They are finally starting to be fairly trashed. Very comfortable. I have never even gotten a blister despite many miles and climbs with heavy packs.
If they fit your feet, buy them.
