Here's what other sites are saying:
The Lowa Ice Comp GTX ice climbing boot is specifically designed for high-performance vertical ice climbing. Developed by world champion ice climber Ines Papert, this fast mover is equipped with Black Diamond's Raptor bolt-on crampon. The whole set-up weighs up to a pound less than if you wore a traditional boot and crampon combo, giving you more energy to get up the ice. These low-bulk unisex waterproof boots are constructed with a split leather and synthetic upper with a Gore-Tex lining. The rigid nylon insole provides the stability and stiffness required for steep ice. The high sticky rubber rand increases durability and improves your smearing power.

These sophisticated boots have one mission: pure, vertical ice. Developed by World Champion ice climber, Ines Papert, for superior performance. Combining the attributes of split-grain and synthetic leather as well as Cordura®, these uppers offer ample flexibility and durability. Seam-sealed Gore-Tex® liners with wicking nylon linings stop moisture leakage while allowing moisture vapor to escape. Lace-to-toe design allows a secure, precise fit while full sticky rubber randing enhances edging ability and protects uppers from abrasion. Adjustable cuffs seal out debris and icefall to keep feet drier and more comfortable. Rigid nylon midsole supports offer a solid platform for tricky routes. Built-in Black Diamond Raptor crampons with mono-points for thin cracks and spike heels for dynamic heel-hooks.
