    I usually wear a 37.5-38 in La Sportiva and sized up to a 39.5 with the Nuptse. Although the fit was great for ice climbing, after 8 miles of AT skiing, a quarter size amount of flesh was exposed on both of my heels. These do work better for me than the Scarpa Invernos, but I fear a long break-in period is ahead. Be aware and plan ahead when you take these out for the first time! That said,they stand up well to the sub-zero temps of interior Alaska.

    I normally don't leave negative feedback but my experience trying to get a pair of these boots was bad. I typically wear a women's 7.5 (men's 6/EU 38). I ordered a 38.5(women's 8) but had to jam my feet into the boots. I exchanged them for a 40 (men's 7.5/women's 9). Even this size boot was way too small. I gave up at this point [...] to end up with no boots. There is a note on the boot description saying to order a 1/2 size larger but the note is way off and useless. [...] I have bought a lot of things here but will never order a pair of shoes from here again as one can't rely on their sizing comments, especially for this product.
    • Cons: Uncomfortable
    • Sizing: Feels full size too small
    • Was this a gift?: No
    • Width: Feels too narrow

    These run really small--had to order 1.5 sizes bigger than normal. The toe box is also tight, width-wise and up and down. Once you get the sizing figured out, they are really nice boots.

    Haven't been out on these yet. I bought them after researching the best boots for snowboarding/splitboarding. These boots came up in discussions many times. I am planning a trip to the White Mtns. this spring and bought these boots specifically for that purpose. Will try to write a post-review when I get back for the trip.
