Recent Mountaineering Boot Reviews

Salewa Men's Rapace GTX

rated 5 of 5 stars Lightweight, good fit, should be a sturdy backpacking boot that also climbs well. I just purchased these and have yet to put them through a full season. I was seeking a backpacking boot with a firm but not rigid sole that will walk and handle long approaches well, and that will also take crampons and climb and handle off trail work well. I expect these to be a lighter and more comfortable alternative to a pair of old leather Garmonts that had fit the bill for many years, but that needed to be retired. Full review

Galibier Super Guide

rated 5 of 5 stars I have had these boots more than 40 years. When people tell you they last they are telling you the truth. I have had these Super Guides resoled three times. Rebuilt once. My only regret is I let them talk me into using 3/4 shank instead of full shank. Consequently they aren't as good in vertical rough terrain as they used to be. I coated them with Snow Seal when they were brand new and numerous times since then. My feet have never been wet in these boots.  I have different size feet and was lucky… Full review

Kayland 8001

rated 4 of 5 stars It's an outdated model from Kayland. They took these from the production line two years ago, if I am not mistaken. I bought the boots from a Spanish ebayer who was liquidating his mountain gear store two months ago. They looked solid and well build when I took em right out of the box. Having a double boot which is a first time for me, made me think my feet will never get cold until I snuggle in my sleeping bag and indeed, I was very comfortable when I wore em during a 4000+ m summit attempt last… Full review

La Sportiva Men's Nepal Extreme

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Absolutely outstanding boots. Very rarely do I manage to find boots which fit me straight out of the box. Very warm, super comfy and the versatile lacing/tongue system allows for a varied configuration to achieve a prefect fit. Absolutely outstanding boots. Very rarely do I manage to find boots which fit me straight out of the box. After renting a pair from Cotswold Outdoor to test them, I went straight out and bought some from Go Outdoors. With a little practice finding out the best placement for… Full review

Galibier Super Guide

rated 4.5 of 5 stars I bought a very clean, low miles, used pair in '79 and they fit me like they were made expressly for my foot! I am not a real 'mountaineer' like some of you folks. l just used them strictly for backpacking in the San Gabriel-San Bernardino mountains in summer and wore them all winter as work and walk around in the snow when I lived up in the San Bernardino Mts at 7,500 ft. They were so confidence inspiring I gave them to a friend who really needs them and am now on the website drooling over a new… Full review

La Sportiva Men's Nepal Extreme

rated 1 of 5 stars Despite being called Nepal Extreme these boots are NOT suitable for use in EXTREME conditions in NEPAL or elsewhere. Two of our team wearing them suffered frostbite wearing these boots at 5930 metres in Nepal. Despite the very misleading name these boots are not recommended for use over 4000 metres. On a recent trip to Nepal at 5930 metres the only two people wearing these boots suffered frostbite requiring hospital treatment. I have contacted the manufacturers who claim they are not recommended… Full review

Salomon S-Lab X Alp Carbon GTX

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Good for three-season mountaineering from trail head to summit. Now you don't need approach shoes any more. Light is fast and fast is safer. Review The weight and stiffness of mountaineering boots make them something I put on with reluctance and only when absolutely needed. For instance, to avoid wearing the big boots I hiked to Camp Muir on Mt. Rainier in Gore-Tex trail runners before donning the big boots to finish the trip. Conventional mountaineering boots are big, clunky and too stiff for trail… Full review

Koflach Degre

rated 5 of 5 stars Excellent boots. Easy to maintain. Light. Robust. Used for Search and Rescue in UK. Brought those boots to use them on the winter for Search and Rescue. They are a bit overkill for UK, but the low maintenance costs are the plus side. Used them on Scotland when climbed Ben Nevis and proven again that Koflach still remains a strong boot for the serious climber. Six out of five stars.  Full review

Koflach Degre

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Fantastic for what it is built to do. I just got back from a 5-day excursion in Northern Ontario. These were the only boots/shoes I brought. When not needed for more trying climbs/hikes, the boot was real easy to adjust loosely around the foot to be worn like a pair of slippers. The fit was right on the money with my measurements. Also, the boots stayed warm in temps that hovered in the negative teens F. Only in a few instances were my toes cold, very rarely. Snowshoeing in these boots was a dream. Full review
