Recent Mountaineering Boot Reviews

Lowa Men's Cevedale GTX

rated 5 of 5 stars I use these for climbing 14ers in Colorado. Highly recommend for a variety of situations. These guys will get you up and down the mountain without ever losing traction or giving blisters...even straight out of the box. I absolutely love this boot. I spent roughly an afternoon breaking these bad boys in and that was probably excessive. Out of the box they were very flexible and easy to work with. For how durable and tough these guys are they are extremely light and easy to move in. The week I got… Full review

La Sportiva Men's Karakorum

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Replaced a pair of long lived Asolo TPS 520s with these in preparation for a mountaineering climb that required crampons. I loved the Asolos but needed something with a more rigid sole. In 1989 I bought my first "real" hiking boots. The $80 Vasque boots bragged of full-grain leather, double-stitched soles, steel shank, leather liner, and Vibram soles. They made me feel like I could go through anything. They lasted me about 10 years until one of the soles separated from the upper 7 miles up a snowy… Full review

Galibier Vercors

rated 5 of 5 stars Worked in an outdoor sports shop (Sun Cycle, Ashland, Oregon) in 1974 and bought a pair of Vercours for $57. Had a pair of Super Guides also. As a geologist, backpacker and climber I have owned more than a few pairs of boots. NOTHING surpassed Galibier products. They are COMFORTABLE out of the box, DURABLE, and HIGH PERFORMANCE! Shell out the money and never buy another pair of boots in your life! Full review

Lowa Men's Weisshorn GTX

rated 5 of 5 stars Excellent overall boot, especially for technical alpine work. Surprisingly comfortable fit. I've always had to use a stiff boot due to injuring both ankles in a bad skiing tumble ages ago. After using my Kastinger Denali boot for close to 35 years (and going through three sets of soles), I decided to move up into something new. I chose Lowa as their boots usually fit my feet the best of all brands. I originally wanted the Silberhorn, but I waited too long, and they were sold out. First Impressions… Full review

The North Face Verto S6k Glacier GTX

rated 5 of 5 stars Light and comfortable, but solid boots with a full shank that take any crampons if needed. Comfort/Ease of use: I did what you should never do — bought these a couple of hours before a climb into pretty difficult conditions. I'm really glad I did though. We climbed up into knee to hip high fresh powder snow. Breaking trail and kicking steps was not a problem. Due to the worse than expected conditions we never made it to the peak but my feet were never a concern. I had solid footing and could… Full review

Koflach Degre

rated 5 of 5 stars I like the best! Koflach has been pioneers and has been around the longest. Solid durable boot that's warm and holds up under the most demanding of circumstances. I have my assistance guide license in Alaska. I guide for Dall sheep mostly and the terrain in which they live demands a top shelf boot. Packing up to 140 pounds in our packs quite commonly also demands a solid supportive boot. They are lightweight, and the removable liner is nice for drying out. I really like the Koflach Degre and plan… Full review

Lowa Men's Mountain Expert GTX

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Great boot! Warm, comfortable, and breathable! Really comfortable boot! I've used them for snowshoeing in the dead of winter (-20 degrees C) , and climbing in the summer. They breathe well and have stayed waterproof so far! I find that they are nice and stiff so I can easily wear a step-in crampon, or kick into hard snow to make a step. I'd recommend them to anyone looking for a good all around mountain boot. Full review

Scarpa Wrangell GTX

rated 4.5 of 5 stars This is a very sturdy boot, made with quality materials. This is a very sturdy boot, made with quality thick suede and metal eyelets with an adjustable lace system to hold your heal tightly in place. It runs about 1/2 to 1 full size small. Even though the sizing runs small, they are made with correct proportions for average to wide feet. I did replace the factory insoles with Superfeet inserts to add support and comfort before I went on an outing with them, so I am not able to tell you how they… Full review

Lowa Men's Weisshorn GTX

rated 5 of 5 stars These boots are superb for technical mountaineering and ice climbing. These boots saw extensive use this past season in New Hampshire's White Mountains ranging from backcountry technical mountaineering climbs to general redline mountaineering on the trail. For me, these were an evolution in boots up from the Lowa Mountain Expert GTX, which is also a great boot for more general mountaineering. The Weisshorns are basically the Mtn Expert on steroids. I'm an 8 1/2 and went with a 9 as it appeared sizing… Full review
