Recent Mountaineering Boot Reviews

AKU Mustang GTX

rated 1 of 5 stars never buy an AKU boot I have bought this boot on October 2014. I used it three times and one of the boots started to bend... Normally this should not have happened. I have contacted AKU Italy and after all corresponding emails, I was left with a faulty boot. Their local dealer refuses to exchange or inspect even. I have never thought I would experience this negative experience from a reputable company. It seems they are not that reputable.    Full review

Lowa Men's Weisshorn GTX

rated 4 of 5 stars Versatile mountaineering boot with good performance that won't break the bank. Good for general mountaineering. This boot does a lot of things well. It's flexible enough to wear on medium to long approaches without killing your feet, yet it's stiff enough to use while front pointing on water ice. I chose Lowa because I have a wide foot with a high instep and I knew that I could get the fit I was looking for because of being a previous Lowa owner. The slanted top cuff allows the foot and leg to flex… Full review

La Sportiva Men's Nepal Cube GTX

rated 2.5 of 5 stars At the recommendation of the outfitter near Mt. Rainier I purchased these boots with a 90-day window to break them in. Supposedly 70% of the guides out there wear these. With three weeks before my climb and thousands invested to summit Rainier these boots hurt like hell.  I have tried Superfeet inserts of five types, several configurations of thick and thin socks, with and without liner socks, laced up tight to hold my heel down—they rub and hurt every time I take a walk. It is a mile around… Full review

Galibier Super Guide

rated 5 of 5 stars Bought my pair in early '70s for $52 in San Diego. They are exceptional mountaineering boots. I have no idea how many total miles since then. Great for off-trail and heavy packs. Third set of soles, one shank. Untold miles on the PCT, Continental Divide, Grand Canyon, and local California mountains. Served me well in Mountain Rescue and as a California State Park Ranger. They are sturdy, comfortable and yes, heavy, compared to today's standards. There is some break-in needed. Leather will generally… Full review

Garmont Men's Tower GTX

rated 4 of 5 stars Garmont leather boots (and the Zion, the full leather one is the best) are top notch. They last about five times more than other brands, such as Marmot, for heavy backpacking between 1,500 and 5,000m, for five years, five times per year. The lining will give in, but after years of abuse—an easy fix to a local clobber who replaced the lining around the heel with some leather for $25. I prefer all leather boots such as the Zion and with a bit of wax in between hikes they are indestructible. Great… Full review

Kayland Hyper Traction

rated 5 of 5 stars This is one really awesome boot! I bought Hyper Traction for winter mountaineering and ice climbing. For these pursuits correct fit is essential as cold feet is the result otherwise. I have a slightly wide foot and my left foot is slightly bigger than my right. When it comes to American shoes, the difference is not noticeable and no additional consideration for fit is necessary. But when it comes to mountaineering boots many Italian welts do not accommodate my width without creating detrimental… Full review

Asolo Men's Expert GV

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Great lightweight versatile boot. I bought these boots 8 years ago from REI. I have some challenges with the Italian welt at times. It seems my foot is slightly wide, although never noticed with American shoes. As a result, some Italian models are just too narrow, while other models from the same manufacturer are a great fit. I bought the Asolo Men’s Expert GV for the spring couloir climbing season in Colorado. For that reason I did not need a heavily insulated boot, but did need waterproof. Full review

MontBell Alpine Cruiser 2000

rated 5 of 5 stars Exceptionally light and fast alpine boots. The Japanese know a lot about snow, and it shows in these boots. These are technical mixed-climbing boots. You could wear them almost anywhere. These are beautiful boots resulting from a complete chance purchase. We had a family holiday booked and paid to the snow — but there was almost no snow. Anticipating a week of snow / slush / bush-walking in lieu I made a last minute decision to invest in a good pair of boots. I walked into the Mont-bell Australian… Full review

Salewa Condor EVO

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Greate boot for hiking, trekking, and some mixed climbing. Durable, full waterproof. Fit: This boots fit great on feet. Comfort: Well, they have comfort. Support: Perfect support for ankle. Water Resistance: Full waterproof. Traction: Like 4x4 Temp Control: Your foot will feel like you are at home. Ease of Use: Very easy to put on foot. Features: Satisfactory design. Construction & Durability: Strong construction and good durability. Conditions: Any time of year. Good for all outdoor activity. Full review
