I am a converted believer in gore-tex boots! These boots worked like a dream. It took a couple of days to break them in (mostly worn in house and office and on walks) but now they fit and flex better than any boot I have owned. They have a full length steel shank intagrated into the polyethlene insole. This means that they can take a step-in crampon and also provide excellent protection against stone bruising. They handled my Lowe Foot-Fangs with no problem and never popped of once (unlike previous boots I have owned). The best part is how dry I stayed spending 5 hours climbing in snow! The leather looked wet on the outside but my feet were dry and tosty on the inside! I would recommend this boot to anyone!
