Salewa Women's Rapace GTX

rated 4.5 of 5 stars 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

rated 3 of 5 stars Good boots...but not for heavy duty jobs. Same problems. Full review

Salewa Men's Rapace GTX

rated 4 of 5 stars 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

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
