great boot- wish it was right for me

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!
