User Review: Scarpa Inverno
Use: Mountaineering, Ice Climbing
Break-in Period: Good out of the box
These boots are quite comfortable for my wide feet and flat arches, but for long, level, approaches, I opt to put them on top of the pack and use approach shoes! The boots are quite warm, even in cold conditions (below freezing) with the regular liners. I have had some problems with the laces being shreaded by the metal grommets -- you may want to carry a spare set of laces on a longer trip. Oh yeah, don't expect them to be easy for any alpine rock climbing.
