Bloody good shoe. Very comfortable and no need to wear the shoe in. Very waterproof, great soles and overall a very strong shoe. I've had them for over seven years and wear them very often and never had a problem with them. Good for city wear too.
The only problem is La Sportiva don't make them any more. Well, I've got a pair so I'm happy... I'm just wondering how much longer they will last, it seems as if nothing will wear them down. (though the sole will need changing soon.)
Use: Rough trail, mountaineering, hard backpacking
Break-in Period: Very fast
Weight: 3 lbs.
Price Paid: $200
I really like these boots. Very waterproof with the Gore-tex bootie. I took them through the Amazon jungle and the Andes last summer.
They hav'nt failed me yet. The Vibram sole is awesome and has a lifetime warranty. The sole cleans it self when you trek. I've even used this boot for some tech.rockclimbing. Not too shaby. Very comfy & Very recomended!
It's a great boot for everything, even hot dates!!!
