Some great features but a difficult fit

These boots are less expensive than other mountaineering boots but I found the fit to be less than ideal. I wear a 9.5/10 and got size 42. The tongue bulges on the inside of the boot and seemed like it would rub on a long climb. The heels are also wide for a women's shoe and no matter how tight I got the laces, my heels slipped. I ended up exchanging these for the La Sportiva Nepals which I found to be much more comfortable. The Scarpas did seem very durable though and would likely keep my fight warm in cold mountain conditions.
