Solid boots

Verified Buyer Reviewed by Dude in AK from Alaska on Saturday, April 12, 2014
I had a pair of Scarpa Charmoz for many years and really enjoyed those boots. Eventually the gore tex liner broke down and they started leaking, and they always seemed a little narrow to me. These Scarpa Triolet boots build on what was great in the Charmoz with a noticeably wider forefoot area and more durable suede panels in the upper. They are not as light as some other alpine boots in this class, and they use the Vibram Mulaz sole which I don't care for much with their very shallow lugs, but the boots are supportive and comfy so far. If you have funny shaped feet you may do better in these than in other, more narrow European offerings. The ankle support is average, and the lacing hardware is not the greatest, but overall a good light alpine boot for wider feet.
