Verified Buyer Reviewed by Want to Go Climbing from NC on Monday, February 20, 2017Nice wide toe box that later versions of boot seem to be using a narrower last
Verified Buyer Reviewed by Tom from South Carolina on Monday, January 23, 2017So far a 5. I have a pair and bought these for may Son. We really like the boots. They fit well for folks with a "wider fit".
Reviewed by Patrick from Colorado on Wednesday, November 30, 2016Just for sizing reference, I am around a men's size 10 and the 44 fits me really well. Takes a little bit of work to get the lacing right, but they work like a dream. This is a top-of-the-line mountaineering boot and a really good choice.
Verified Buyer Reviewed by Mike the Bike from Illinois on Monday, November 7, 2016Nice snug fit and a deal for the gaiter-boot price ranges.
Verified Buyer Reviewed by Climbing Guide from Washington on Friday, July 8, 2016These boots work great especially if you have wider feet. No problems with them yet but I have only worn them on one trip up Mt. Rainier so far so I cannot rate them on durability yet.
Verified Buyer Reviewed by Cop from Atlanta on Monday, May 23, 2016Ive been looking for my first pair of mountaineering boots so my experience is not much but I have tried on a lot of boots and done side by side comparisons.
These boots have the rep of being wide fit. It is true. My foot rotates slightly in the wider toe box. I imaging this would lead to some sore feet. The wider box is not dramatic but side by side comparison you definitely feel the difference. Even with thick socks.
These boots flex more than some. It's supposed to have full ridgid shank but the front foot does flex a bit. More than others so depending on intended use may not be great.
The laces felt very thin and cheap. The ankle and tounge felt very thin and dit not offer a ton of support.
I did not like the styling at all if that matters.
Overall I think these boots selling point is the super gaitor. If that is a must and you have slightly wider feet these could be a good fit but if not I would shop around.
