Recent Mountaineering Boot Reviews

La Sportiva Men's Nepal EVO GTX

rated 4.5 of 5 stars These boots are bomber. They are definitely too stiff for approach hiking, however they shine bright when put into glacier travel and ice climbing. If you can afford them get them, otherwise look for some used ones. Fit: They run an accurate size. Comfort: Once broken in they are great! Support: Full shank... enough said Water Resistance: Gore-tex so good Traction: Surprisingly great Temp Control: Very good, however heavy thermal socks recommended for any temps below -5°C. Ease of Use: Pretty… Full review

Alico New Guide

rated 5 of 5 stars Traditional leather mountaineering boot. Alico New Guide Men's Mountaineering Boot Size 8.5 over 2 pounds each Vibram soles, notice the rare green dot, explain please Traction- SBR compound - "Consisting of a compound specially designed for mountaineering footwear which ensures a good grip on different grounds." "The green dot signifies a dual hardness compound which means the sole would be more durable and harder and may not grip as well as a single hardness sole. The red dot signifies fire compound.

Alico New Guide

rated 5 of 5 stars These boots are the backpacking boots on the market. Structural superiority and comfort. Old style Italian craftsmanship. A great boot for backpacking and mountaineering. These Alico New Guide Mountaineering boots are a sensational pair of backpacking boots. I have had them since July 2016. During that time I have hiked the complete JMT and did not have one problem. I did a 50-mile, break-in period and never had a hot spot or blister. On the John Muir Trail they performed outstanding. Great stability… Full review

AKU Men's Zenith Leather

rated 4.5 of 5 stars This model is discontinued, I can't find them anywhere. Very comfortable. I bought mine for $90 on Sierra Trading Post. I have crossed streams etc. After reading the negative reviews here, and had no waterproof issues. I never put anything on them either. Maybe Aku's manufacturing is inconsistent. I love the leather interior lining, because it doesn't pick up burrs or other organic splintery things like fabrics do. The regular price is a bit much. They are rather lightweight, comfortable. I wear… Full review

Galibier Super Guide

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Last a lifetime. They are perfection for what they are designed for — mountaineering. But they also work as a rugged all purpose boot. I bought mine in the early '70s for hiking, backpacking, mountaineering, general wear, on the job. Put them away in the '90s in favor of lighter "modern" boots, which I've been very disappointed in. Just dug them out of the "archives" and they are like I never left them. Full review

Salewa Men's Raven 2 GTX

rated 4 of 5 stars Very well made, very high quality. May not be the perfect match for every foot and ankle. The Lamborghini of boots. Very rigid shank even though it's not steel, provides enough flex in the  front of the foot for comfortable movement. Top quality materials. I purchased these a few days ago after having done thorough research and trying on multiple other comparable boots. I have begun to notice, after three days of wearing, some slow to arise comfort issues, primarily with the footbed design that's… Full review

La Sportiva Men's Trango S Evo GTX

rated 4.5 of 5 stars This is a great summer mountaineering boot for general mountaineering and glacier travel. This is a great summer mountaineering boot as it is not insulated and is very waterproof. It is incredibly lightweight and sturdy, although the sole wears down quickly on rock. They work well with semi-automatic crampons, but do not have a toe welt for fully automatic crampons. They have a 3/4 length shank and rockered sole which allows them to hike very well. The laces are smooth and easy to use, especially… Full review

AKU Mustang GTX

rated 1 of 5 stars Never buy an AKU boot. I bought this boot in October 2014. I used it three times and one of the boots started to bend. Normally this should not have happened. I have contacted AKU Italy and after all corresponding emails, I was left with a faulty boot. Their local dealer refuses to exchange or inspect even. I have never thought I would experience this negative experience from a reputable company. It seems they are not that reputable.  The bending boot: The non-bending part: Full review

Lowa Men's Weisshorn GTX

rated 4 of 5 stars Versatile mountaineering boot with good performance that won't break the bank. Good for general mountaineering. This boot does a lot of things well. It's flexible enough to wear on medium to long approaches without killing your feet, yet it's stiff enough to use while front pointing on water ice. I chose Lowa because I have a wide foot with a high instep and I knew that I could get the fit I was looking for because of being a previous Lowa owner. The slanted top cuff allows the foot and leg to flex… Full review
