Recent Mountaineering Boot Reviews

Galibier Super Guide

rated 5 of 5 stars Bought my pair in early 70s for $52.00 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. 3rd set of soles one shank. Untold miles on the PCT, Continental Divide, Grand Canyon and local California Mtn. Served me well in Mountain Rescue and as a California State Park Ranger. They are sturdy, comfortable and yes, heavy, compared to todays standards. There is some break-in needed. Leather will generally form… 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

Scarpa Men's Charmoz Pro GTX

rated 5 of 5 stars Lightweight boots for spring to early fall mountaineering and hunting boots. I hunt sheep and goat in Alaska in steep mountain terrain. I have other boots for my late hunts (October to December) which are very stiff and not made to walk flatter terrain. I bought these for my spring and summer hunts and scouting where there is a lot of rolling hills and lower level mountain terrain. They also give me solid ankle support, packing out 80 pounds for several miles. Because they are non-insulated, in… Full review

Alico New Guide

rated 5 of 5 stars It took me a while to find a pair of new Guides. I've been using Danner Mountain Light boots for many years. I thought I understood what it meant to break in a leather boot...clearly I was wrong. It was obvious to me  from the moment I opened the box—the 7 plus pound box—that these were different. These boots make my Danners and old Asolos feel like jogging shoes. The quality and durability is unbelievable. I use them for work and play. I basically wear them every day. But be warned, it took… Full review

Asolo Aconcagua GV

rated 4.5 of 5 stars I just found out from Asolo that these are a limited offerring NOT DISTRIBUTED IN THE USA (see my source below who suddenly listed a few all as almost gone, but in several sizes 9.5 to 13). Asolo Medium boots typically run on the narrow side for foot volume and heal width, but have nice toe box size. Little Mt Si isn't the highest point in the Western Hemisphere, like Mt Aconcaqua.  However, the Asolo Aconcaqua Mountaineering boots, with its' pinnacle name, can help me conquer almost peak in comfort… Full review
