I have multiple pairs of this boot. It fits my foot well, but I have a low volume foot, average width. It evidently doesn't work well for people with thick (top to bottom) feet. If you can get it to fit you, I think it is awsome. Never climbed ice so well, it's my favorite boot for technical ice climbing.

I used the boots on my first ice climb and was quite miserable. Reading all the reviews on sizing issues with the boots, I ordered them 1/2 size larger and they were still way too tight. Because of that my feet were cold the whole time and I had bruised toes at the end of that trip. NO GOOD!!!

This is a surprisingly good boot, I was very disappointed it didn't fit and had to return it. It is much warmer than any other boot I've tried in it's weight class(coming from a Trango S). I guess that honeycomb stuff works. The outer material is also very waterproof and seems like it will be more durable than most synthetic leather type stuff I've seen. Unfortunately, even though I have narrow feet, the boot did not fit. The toe box is not tall enough, it pinched my foot. Even wearing thin socks it didn't fit. I usually wear a 11.5 and a 12 for large boots. I ordered the 12.5 and the length was right but as I said, the toe didn't fit. If I were to get the next larger size even if the toe fit, it would be too long. I got the Millet Radikal and it fits small too, but has a larger toe box. If you get this boot consider sizing up 1-1.5 sizes.

“Can this boot be used on long(multi day) approaches with 60 lbs on your back? I'm hiking aconcagua in February and I'm looking for something for the days leading up to double plastics and also a trek into base camp.”
