Recent Mountaineering Boot Reviews

Galibier Super Rando

rated 5 of 5 stars Old school perfection! This is the "1970's" heavy duty backpacking boot. It has all the same quality and features you would have found on a pair purchased back then plus the best sole (Khumbu) ever made for hiking on granite and wet roots. I purchased a 46 for my 11" long feet which are low volume and fairly narrow. I wear a US 11.5 D in most boots except White's which I am a 10.5. The toe box tapers in, so with no insole and my foot slid forward, there was a good 3/4" or about a finger and wiggle… Full review

La Sportiva Women's Nepal EVO GTX

rated 3 of 5 stars They are absolutely bomber mountaineering boots and I recommend them to any serious mountaineer BUUUUT holy hell do these suckers hurt—so much that on my last climb I joked that hacking off my feet with my ice ax and descending on bloody stumps would be less painful. Wearing them feels like miniature shark attacks (one for each foot). They are ultra stiff, full-shank boots so I wasn't expecting them to ever be comfortable, but after using them nearly year-round for three years I thought they'd… Full review

Salomon Super Mountain 9 Guide

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Excellent boot. If you can get them they are worth it. I have used these boots in all conditions for the last 20 years and find them to be a very rugged boot. I am trying to find another pair as I have worn mine out. If anyone has a pair they are willing to part with in a size 11 or 12 let me know. Full review

Scarpa Men's Charmoz

rated 3.5 of 5 stars Modern, attractive, affordable, and durable. However they are so stiff and high I never felt sure-footed wearing them in dangerous steep country. I bought a pair of these to replace my Meindl Makalu Pros, which were great boots that I managed to wear out pretty quickly. Straight off the bat I was impressed with the light weight of the Scarpas. Experienced hikers will know that the lighter the boots you have, the more energy you will have at the end of the day. I'm always worried about blisters,… Full review

Scarpa Alpha

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Warm, stiff, and light for a double boot. Sadly no longer made, but these boots are exceptional and can be bought at bargain prices these days. I've led up to WI4 with no trouble and I'm sure a more experienced ice climber could climb much harder than that with these. Also took these to the Tien Shan twice and had no complaints about warmth, comfort, or climbing ability. Only went to 5100m but I reckon these would do 6000m and beyond pretty comfortably. Kept up with my friend's swanky lightweight… Full review

La Sportiva Trango Extreme Evo Light GTX

rated 0.5 of 5 stars The first season was great, although lifting heel. The second one fully wet. Are these boots meant to last one season only? Full review

Koflach Arctis Expe

rated 5 of 5 stars Классные ботинки для покорения вершин зимой. Рекомендую. [Google Translate: Cool shoes to conquer the peaks in the winter. I recommend.] Очень теплые. Удобные во время ходьбы. Не пропускает воду и удобны для одевания и зашнуровувания. Реально класные ботинки. Кошки держатся плотно. На высоте выше 6000 метров показывают… Full review

Salomon Super Mountain 9 Guide

rated 5 of 5 stars A superb ice climbing single boot for a day out on the ice. I have climbed in these boots for the past five years. They fit my feet perfectly but did take quite a bit of break in on the heels. They have held up incredibly well. Have added a Super Gaiter for added warm in the very cold White Mountains of NH.  These continue to be my go-to pure ice climbing boots. Not too bad to hike in (approach on snow to climbs) but not hiking boots. These boots are made for ice climbing. Super stiff with great… Full review

Galibier Super Guide

rated 5 of 5 stars The best boots money can buy. Well worth every penny. I have wanted a pair of these hand crafted boots for decades. I have just come back from Paris, and while I was there I bumped into a shop that still sell these wonderful boots. I could not get the money fast enough out of my pocket to buy them. And now I am at home I put them on, and they fit perfectly. The workmanship has to be the best I have ever seen on a boot, be it full leather or any other material. I love these boots so much I have just… Full review
