These boots fit great from the ankle down. Even without a break-in my first hike left me without blisters. The problem is with the tongue, it won't stay put. I have tried velcro, and frequent readjustment, but I just can't keep the things from falling down the side of my foot. It seems that about everyone here has had the same problem, so it seems to be a design flaw. When the tongue is at the side, the comfort ranges form no pain to great pain, it just varies for some reason. If find these boots at a great discount and you try them enough to tell if you don't mind the tongue then get them they feel great on the feet, otherwise I'd pick the SL's. I am going to try to exchange mine for some SL's if Scarpa will cooperate.

Break-in period was for pressure area across the toes where the toe cap stiffness pressed against toes. Tongue on left boot kept sliding far to the left. Manufacturer was willing to replace or suggested gluing velcro to tongue and inside of ankle area to prevent problem. It worked and may "retrain " the tongue so velcro may be removed in the future.

JUNK!

I had the boots for one month and the Gore split from the upper. I sent them back to ED Fabiano and he had the nerve to say it was my fault and that he would only cover half of the price.
