User Review: La Sportiva Makalu
Materials: heavy leather
Use: rough trail w/ heavy pack
Break-in Period: short break-in for me
Price Paid: $220
These boots are awesome! Slight break-in period with help of a boot stretcher (one hot spot). I backpack with heavy loads (60-80lbs.) OFF the trails and the Makalu supports my feet and ankles perfectly. The Makalu is a heavy boot, and if you're used to sport hikers, light loads and easy trails, these boots aren’t for you. However if you get off the trails and ramble the mountains hunting and camping you can trust your life with these boots.
