The Real Deal

Reviewed by Rob from Switzerland on Sunday, September 6, 2015
These are some great boots. On the train now after climbing to the summit of the Breithorn in Switzerland. Crampons fit perfect and the stiffness was also really good. I appreciated the integrated gaiter since the snow was a bit slushy on the descent and was a bit thick in places. Lastly, these boots will keep your feet warm. We had temps in the -10s with strong wind gusts and my feet never felt chilled.

Sizing was a half size big for me. I tried on some AKU boots in a store before ordering from STP, so the fit was great for me.

These are well constructed Alpine boots that will excel in adverse conditions. I don't think they'd be suitable for long flat hikes since the soles are really stiff. But for Alpine environments, ice climbing, they are the ticket. Plus they're handmade in Italy and serialized so I know the quality is top notch.
