Great heel lock, good toe feel, great on descent, you feel really secure on loose materials and scree.kept me warm while not sweating my feet out.these boots really look great, lots of compliments even though thats not what I bought them for.moosejaw and asolo really treated me well.
"Here's information that will help you get on your way to having comfortable and functional boots"
This boot has been through waste high rivers, climbed mounds of sharp jacked demolished bricks during a job. It cut through the sides of the sole just a little but defiantly still usable. It's been through mud, dirt, even a little snow down here in the dirty south. They are always comfortable and broke in virtually the first time I placed them on my feet. They are so comfortable I often find myself wearing them around the house wearing shorts since they feel so good to wear. So much so that even on a extremely hot day, I will often choose to wear jeans just so I can wear theses. I've had them for about 8 months and they barely show wear
Just got these boots and just got them broken in. The break in period didn't take very long. I never really had sore feet in the process either. I'll be using these for some trekking in Patagonia this year and I have high expectations for these boots. And did I mention they look super bad ass!
Let me start by saying these are my first Mountaineering boots, so I'm no expert. That being said they are very comfortable(with smart feet) and did well kick stepping and coming down steep snow. I like the way the laces are split into a sort of double system that makes them easy to get perfectly snug. They're warm, waterproof and have excellent traction. They also look bad ass.
