Here's what other sites are saying:
A far cry from the bulky alpine boots of yesteryear, the La Sportiva Men's Trango Tower Extreme GTX Mountaineering Boot offers ultralight warmth and support to help you scale towering peaks in remarkable comfort-relatively speaking, at least. After all, if you don't suffer a little, then the mountain wasn't big enough. Gore-Tex Performance Comfort keeps your foot dry when you get caught off-guard by a freak snowstorm in the middle of summer, but still breathes well to keep you from overheating at lower altitudes.
