User Review: Scarpa Inverno (1997)
Use: winter mountaineering/ice climbing
Break-in Period: none
Price Paid: $270 (clearance)
These boots kick ass for cold and snowy conditions. They are also rigid for vertical ice. They are comfy and feel very durable. Since my left foot is at least .5 size larger than my right foot, I have to stuff the right boots with more socks, an extra insole, but seems to keep my heel better in place. Did great on vertical ice and kept my feet toasty in below zero temps and extreme wind chill.
If you can find these for the 20% clearence, get them while you can, otherwise it will be $340 for the '98, but probably still worth it - KILLER BOOTS!!!!!!
