Very tough boot
Verified Buyer Reviewed by Cmg805 from Santa Barbara on Monday, July 10, 2017
This is the first mountaineering boot that I've purchased. I would have liked to shop around a little more but I had a Mt Whitney trip coming up. This is a very stiff boot, perfect for crampons and climbing but a little too stiff for the hike up and down where a bit of comfort would be appreciated. I had a bit of an issue with my ankle bone rubbing and pressure from the boot but there is no stiff material there, it's padded and my left foot was fine. So maybe it's my ankle.
