La Sportiva Nepal Extreme

If properly fit and broken in, you can mountain run in these babies... If you get the right gear, you can take them higher without freezing your feet off. First off, add some Green Superfeet. Second, if you want to hike to break these in, be ready for some real pain even with a proper fit... These boots are so rigid, but once broken in are perfect. Or, do the warm water bathtub trick to break them in.  I've broken in two pair of these, one by each method.  Hiking, it took about 30 miles with swaps… Full review

Galibier Super Guide

Classic leather mountaineering boot that is still made, but hard to acquire if you live in USA. Will refine review upon arrival and some trail time. auvieuxcampeur.fr/super-guide-19.html I contacted Pelle Line, in NJ, in May 2020. They were nice BUT they wanted $845. So I declined and continued my quest. I contacted Paraboot directly—NO REPLY. I even got a contact at Paraboot, Pierre Colin, from Thierry Hoo at alaville-alamontagne.com in France that sells the SG's (but does not ship to USA). In… Full review

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 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 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 Kento High GTX

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

rated 4 of 5 stars
Salewa 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
