AKU Spider Kevlar GTX
Historic Range: $189.98-$599.95
Going on year 2 of having these great boots. They broke in quite quickly and have continued to astound me. Very comfortable and warm not to mention it's no big deal kicking steps into steep hardpack for hours on end.
They do feel very light compared to my friend's La Sportiva's
I had my feet get very cold on one climb only to find that I had on too thick of socks. After getting some thinner socks my feet have stayed toasty warm with the coldest I have had them in is -9 degree's.
