Bought these in 1994. Takes some time to break in. Great stiff, durable shoe. It's March 2013 and I just waterproofed them and they still look new. I took excellent care of them. I use for fishing, moderate hiking trails and casual wear around town. Best with a thick pair of wool socks. Use a wicking sock in warmer weather. Not recommended for extreme cold. Takes the shock off walking, excellent ankle support.

I have hiked for 15 years in these wonderful boots and now the is very little traction. I have very wide 9.5 EEE feet.
Scarpa says the ATTAK is not longer made and that I should try their SL M3 wide.
Has anyone made this change? I am going to hedge my bets and get my old Limmers resoled.
Use: Heavy summer pack, and winter mountain day.
Break-in Period: Thought they were more comfortable after two hikes
Weight: Approx 1700 grams a pair
Price Paid: Approx £80
Have used these boots in the lakes, Monroes and Welsh mountains mainly in winter or wet weather with and without crampons. Grip extremely well on wet boulders. Have had these boots now for 15 years and still nearly as new. Amazing.
Materials: Leather inside and out - no goretex
Use: Rough or no trail, moderate pack
Break-in Period: 1 month
Price Paid: $129
These boots kept my feet dry through stream crossings, stuck like glue to granite and also did a good job with strap-on crampons and gaiters. They helped me bear my pack weight very well and I still have all of my toenails after a day's down-mountain trek.
What else can I say? Scarpa makes a great, well-made, hard-working hiking boot.
Use: Day walking all seasons
Break-in Period: About two days.
Weight: Not light!
Price Paid: GBP90
I can only guess at the price as it was around 18 years ago. They have never let in water, never made my feet tired and have walked more miles than I care to remember.
Anyone know where I can get them resoled?
Use: Rough Trail
Break-in Period: 2 Weeks
Price Paid: £120
Good boots, still going strong a number of years after purchase with no problems.
