Mammut Magic Guide High GTX

Tried a lot of the best Italian and USA companies. These blow them away dollar for feature. Mammut hits a home run with these. Outta the box comfortable immediately...! I'm probably incredibly stoked because I got an amazing deal on these. This is one of those times when it wasn't too good to be true—deal vs product-wise. Most notably, heel locking lace system with lace locking lower eyelets. Very lightweight comparably. Semi-auto crampon compatible with top of the line Vibram soles that make… Full review

La Sportiva Men's Nepal Cube GTX

My definite winter boot. Couldn't be happier! I needed some stiff boot for winter mountaineering and as per multiple friends' recommendations I was going to buy the trusted Nepal Evo. That was until I started digging a little more into the Nepal series... Enter the Cube! I admit, it was a gamble because there where very few reviews and no references from any fellow hiker. Cube's main selling point compared to the Evo is the carbon honeycomb insole that ups the price +160€ but adds extra warmth… Full review

I have owned the same boots...seriously! since 1974! I was 15-year-old kid in Alaska and worked several jobs to pay the $250 for them. Well, fast forward these many years and I am in Paris with my wife, I found they still make them and I am headed out to buy another pair and have instructed my wife to cremate me in them! My dilemma now is I have read a review on the Meindl Super Perfekt. Full review

Very warm and robust. Superb boots. Would highly recommend where a warm, comfortable, and robust boot is needed. Full review

Salewa Women's Rapace GTX

Great all-around lightweight boots for scrambly terrain. Great for summer outings. I love these boots. I've used mine intensely for the last three years and they are still good as gold. They are extremely comfortable and very lightweight. They fit my feet (I've got wide and flat feet) perfectly and don't even notice them on my foot due to their light weight. They are my preferred pair for summer outings in rocky terrain and scrambly adventures. The edges are perfect for scrambling and the soles… Full review

Mammut Men's Kento High GTX

Good boots...but not for heavy duty jobs. Same problems. Full review

Salewa Men's Rapace GTX

A good all-rounder. I've used this pair for 2,5 years extensively in the Cretan mountains on mixed rocky terrain and also in snow ascents. Salewa describes this boot for mountaineering use and for via ferrata and is crampon compatible which is kinda odd because even though it has a heel welt for use with semi-automatic crampons the boot is not insulated so my feet freeze even with a good pair of winter Primaloft socks! And I'm not a guy who gets cold easily... The color is "Night Black Kamille"… Full review

Great boots, flawless execution. The quality is fantastic with respect to stitch work, stitches sealing, leather quality, finishing, inside of the boots. Since the boots were coming from France to the USA, I was not charged the VAT. There are no high altitude mountains in the part of Texas I currently live, but they will be intensively used on local hikes. Just picked them up from the local USPS today (01/07/2019). Got the pair in EU size 42 from Au Vieux Campeur In France and the experience in… Full review

Mammut Men's Kento High GTX

Very light, but vulnerable and smelly (?) I came across this type of shoes in Zermatt and was struck by both its characteristics, and its low price (particularly for Zermatt and Switzerland): 279 CHF/ 253 €. It also stood out by being made of  "old fashioned" one piece leather, while still appearing to be light and compact. I did not intend to buy new boots, having bought my previous ones only two years before and being pretty satisfied with those. But I seized the opportunity, also hoping to… Full review
