Galibier Super Guide

rated 5 of 5 stars 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

rated 3 of 5 stars 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

Kayland Apex Plus GTX

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Looking for an inexpensive ice boot/light mountaineer boots, this is it! Low cost, fairly light, and burly! I was looking to upgrade my Koflach mountaineering double boot, which I use to ice climb. Those boots are workhorse. I've been to the top of Mt Washington in winter, Aconcagua, and a lot more. I paired them with Charlet Moser (Petzl) crampons for climbing and Petzl Vasak to hike. I still used them until last year to ice climb and lead grade 4. For a few years now, I was looking for a lighter… Full review

Kayland Apex Plus GTX

rated 5 of 5 stars Technical insulated boot with integrated gaiter, developed for winter mountaineering and suitable for use on ice and mixed terrains. Only removable insoles, no inner boots. According to my research, the Kayland Apex Plus GTX boots proved to be a worthy companion when tackling the snowy mountains. It was appreciated for its grippy sole, compatibility with crampons, and efficient waterproofing. The Kayland Apex Plus GTX boots meet the expectations of mountaineers.                              … Full review

Mammut Magic Guide High GTX

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Near perfect balance between comfort and fit, durability, features and innovation, grip, insulation, support, sure-footedness and weight Handsome looking boots. Recently purchased these B3 mountain boots for planned late Autumn/Fall expeditions to Alaska, North West Canada, and Chamonix. So haven't yet tried them out in the frigid conditions they were bought for. But they have seen some use when engaged in less technical (grades I-II) climbing and scrambling in Northern England and Scotland. I was… Full review

Galibier Super Rando

rated 5 of 5 stars Old school perfection! This is the "1970's" heavy duty backpacking boot. It has all the same quality and features you would have found on a pair purchased back then plus the best sole (Khumbu) ever made for hiking on granite and wet roots. I purchased a 46 for my 11" long feet which are low volume and fairly narrow. I wear a US 11.5 D in most boots except White's which I am a 10.5. The toe box tapers in, so with no insole and my foot slid forward, there was a good 3/4" or about a finger and wiggle… Full review

La Sportiva Women's Nepal EVO GTX

rated 3 of 5 stars They are absolutely bomber mountaineering boots and I recommend them to any serious mountaineer BUUUUT holy hell do these suckers hurt—so much that on my last climb I joked that hacking off my feet with my ice ax and descending on bloody stumps would be less painful. Wearing them feels like miniature shark attacks (one for each foot). They are ultra stiff, full-shank boots so I wasn't expecting them to ever be comfortable, but after using them nearly year-round for three years I thought they'd… Full review

Salomon Super Mountain 9 Guide

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Excellent boot. If you can get them they are worth it. I have used these boots in all conditions for the last 20 years and find them to be a very rugged boot. I am trying to find another pair as I have worn mine out. If anyone has a pair they are willing to part with in a size 11 or 12 let me know. Full review

Scarpa Men's Charmoz

rated 3.5 of 5 stars Modern, attractive, affordable, and durable. However they are so stiff and high I never felt sure-footed wearing them in dangerous steep country. I bought a pair of these to replace my Meindl Makalu Pros, which were great boots that I managed to wear out pretty quickly. Straight off the bat I was impressed with the light weight of the Scarpas. Experienced hikers will know that the lighter the boots you have, the more energy you will have at the end of the day. I'm always worried about blisters,… Full review
