    I have had a pair of these for over 5 yrs and they are still holding up great. Feel great when they are on my feet and I haven't hiked on a trail that they could't handle. Thank You Kayland : )

    The shoe is hard and give lots of pressure to my leg. The inner side of shoe should be more soft

    When I ordered these boots I didn’t know what to expect. So far I have been pleasantly surprised. They are stiff enough to kick steps in hard snow, yet requires very little to break them. I haven’t had them long (only two trips) but to this point have handled all terrain comfortably (snow, easy rock, and approach). Would recommend to a pal.

    At this juncture, I haven't put these boots to the test yet. But I have to say, for the quality of the boot, you're getting a ton for your money. I'll use these for vertical ice as well as general mountaineering. I've used plastic boots in years past and finally upgraded to a quality leather climbing boot. Fit is a little tricky. Much like a pair of LaSportiva approach shoes I own, the toe box is narrow. I have very average size feet but having climbed all these years, I understand why the boots are designed this way. That said, I'm typically a size 9 and after trying them on, sized up to a 9.5. Even the 9.5 though is a touch snug. I experimented with a few different socks though and found a great fit provided I'm wearing a thinner hiking sock. There seems to be ample insulation in here so I don't have to wear a really thick sock anyway. There's a double tongue and it's attached by Velcro except in the toe box where it's sewn in, so it's not removable. At first this caused some problems with rubbing but once I flattened it out, no issues. I'm confident these boots will prove to work out really well. And for half the price of most boots in this category, I'm pleased with my purchase.

    Bought these for an upcoming winter trip to mount Whitney-was stoked when they came in, i like style of the shoe, seems functional, built to last.

    comparatively to nepal Evo's, they seem to run somewhat narrow (i have an "average" foot with and felt they were pretty snug), but obviously size up due to feet swelling and want not at altitude

    seemed about as durable as the Evo's but more stylish

    Gator feature is a little odd- crinkly when you slide them on, and tricky to slide them on initially. and they can be somewhat noisy when you really articulate the ankle- not sure if this is really a deal breaker, just something i noticed!

    returned them to size up, but i guess they ran out of my size!! oh well, all and all seem like great boots, just didn't really get a chance to take them out for a spin like i had hoped!
