Price Paid: ~$200
These boots are great. They were comfortable from the start...when I went on a five-day trip after only wearing them around the house. They're extremely durable and waterproof and my feet have never gotten cold in them. They work wonderful with crampons.
I honestly can't think of anything bad to say about these boots. I've had them for a year and a half and other than a little dirt around the edges, they could be new. They're obviously winter boots and are way too warm for anything spring or summer, but they're perfect for any sort of winter hiking.
By the way, I'm a small woman and they seem relatively light...not nearly as heavy as some I tried.

These mountaineering boots are brimming technical features designed to provide comfort and function during demanding adventures. Thick 3mm roughout leather uppers are tough, abrasion-resistant, form-retaining, flexible and breathable. Wicking polyester linings disperse moisture quickly for quick drying and are treated with an antibacterial finish to inhibit odor. Padded, two-piece gusseted tongue protects from lace pressure while keeping out debris and water. High-cut rubber rands protect uppers from abrasion and enhance edging ability. Polyurethane midsoles absorb excess shock and supply cushioning for long approaches and descents. Nylon midsole supports control flex and create a torsionally rigid platform suitable for crampon usage. Vibram® Icetrek outsoles deliver superior durability, traction and braking on rock and ice.
