Recent Mountaineering Boot Reviews

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

La Sportiva Men's Nepal Extreme

rated 5 of 5 stars The standard by which other mountaineering boots are measured. I was surprised by the one-star review for this product, until I read the full review. As a person who has been mountaineering for over 37 years, I felt the need to comment. I have to swallow hard these days when entering an outdoor store. Shops that were once the domain of self-reliant enthusiasts have been replaced by a "new" breed of outdoor consumer. They increasingly shop by online reviews, like this one, or by taking the… Full review

La Sportiva Men's Trango Cube GTX

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Much more than your average boot, the Trango Cube GTX Highlander boots are great on more technical trails and rock scrambles, and perform ideally when the weather turns less than ideal. Highlander Model Note: The Trango Cube GTX Highlanders I tested are the same as the Trango Cube GTX mountaineering boots, but in a camo pattern aimed at hunters. I tested them primarily with that use in mind. Conditions: Trekking along the ridges and valleys of the Allegheny and Appalachian mountains, these boots… Full review

Koflach plastic boots

rated 0.5 of 5 stars My old Koflachs have just fallen apart today. Despite looking perfect at the start of the walk. I guess that there are changes happening in the plastic that are imperceptible. All walkers and climbers should be aware of the risk of this in old plastic boots and I suspect that a responsible manufacturer - there is no such a thing - would warn purchasers of this. Take care out there, I may be gone for some time. Full review

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
