2 veces por el Aconcagua, quien los conoce Utiliza la diferencia ....

comodos, seguros te hacen caminar pensando en el paisaje y no en los pies ...

I used Asolo 8000s to climb high on Aconcagua Mt. in 2011. They worked fine, good traction, fit me just about right, worked great with Sabretooth crampons. Most important, they kept my feet warm in -20° C.

Fit is paramount...some folks cannot receive the proper fit with these boots. Shop for a reputable brand that does.

I purchased them brand new in 2010.

Beware of renting plastic boots! I heard of one guy who rented Asolo 8000s in Mendosa, Argentina, and lost toes because the boots did not protect him from the cold. Plastic boots, because of the hardness, do not show much in the way of wear. What happens is that the insulation within the boot gradually gets compressed and loses its insulation properties! You might rent that same pair or a similar pair at a rental shop.

Overall, if they fit you, and you require a plastic boot they'll do the job for you, though I always bring my trusty Hotronics boot heaters just in case.

Price Paid: $204 incl shipping... killer deal

This a great pair of boots if the fit is right. Spent a week on Mt. Washington in February. All day in the boots with a liner and Smartwool Mtn socks. No cold feet. No hot spots. The liner was supple, molded to foot and kept me warm. Temps were in the single digits and as usual windy. If they fit I would highly recommend them.

Materials: plastic
Use: week long +/expedition/winter
Break-in Period: they are plastic, they break you in.
