User Review: La Sportiva Men's Nepal EVO GTX
Source: bought it new
Price Paid: $500
Most important for a great all-around mountaineering boot is all day comfort, which the Nepal EVO GTX excels at. Even though the description does not mention any info about using this boot for technical climbing, I have found they are very solid for mixed/technical terrain. I highly recommend this boot and they keep my feet toasty!
- Climb well
The fit is true to size and is uniform to all La Sportiva boots. I have a high arch and use insoles which work very well. The lacing system is efficient at customizing the boot to my foot.
I went on a 14 mile hike in winter with the boots right out of the box and experienced no discomfort. This boot provides very good comfort and support. They are very rigid and have a solid feel which helps climbing steeper inclines.
I have yet to encounter any issues with water leaking in. These have kept my feet 100% dry.
Excellent grip in both snow and dirt but slippery on wet rock.
Keeps feet very warm but can overheat if temps get too high.
Very consistent boots that are very well made and last for years. I bought them in 2009, used them every winter/spring season and they're durability is amazing.
