Recent Mountaineering Boot Reviews

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

La Sportiva Men's Glacier EVO

rated 1.5 of 5 stars Fell apart after quite moderate usage at the same heel seam that other mention. Such a basic design fault and they cannot have done much product testing at all. I'd avoid La Sportiva in future for that reason — selling a reasonably upper end mountaineering product that hasn't been properly tested is appalling. Took a long while to break in and were only moderately comfy till then. However, just as they're broken in the same heel stitching problem has beset me — they are falling apart. This is… Full review

Lowa Cevedale Pro GTX

rated 3 of 5 stars Great looking, lightweight footwear, but too soft for backpacking. I own far too many boots, so I really didn't mind when I felt how soft these beautiful boots were in the store. My wife bought them for me (the men's boots) because they looked so good. Now, they're my favorite for walking around in the Seattle winter streets. Full review

Scarpa Mont Blanc Pro GTX

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Solid classic gets several small but innovative upgrades. I found myself on a different continent with sudden opportunities to go up to the Mont Blanc and do some ice and mixed climbing. I had some gear with me but not my mountaineering boots. After visiting all the rental shops that were open and not finding a boot that fit me, I had to bite down and buy a new pair. It hurt, but relatively little in the feet.  Fit: The Mont Blanc Pro GTX (upgrade from the Scarpa's classic Mont Blanc GTX) is built… Full review

Scarpa Phantom 6000

rated 5 of 5 stars Boots are very light and rugged. Can see why these would be the last mountaineering boot a person would need to buy. Fit very well, has great support and feet stayed warm and dry. Will know more in a few years of use. Full review

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
