Right boot, for the right job, 14 July 2011
By MDW (Portsmouth)
I agree with the other review on here that these boots are not always comfortable on long treks and i've also had some swelling in my ankles. However, I don't get this anymore and i've had blistering with all my boots that are new out of the box. They've just taken more time to wear in than leathers.
On the plus i've used mine climbing in crampons and found them to be excellent. They seem to help distributing my weight and I always feel as though I have a solid foothold. They're also completely dry and my feet have never gotten cold.
I don't think it's really a fault with the boot - try on a variety in the shop, think about what you are going to be using it for (and how often) and pick whats right for you. It's a heavy, solid, warm, reliable plastic boot, but if you need something different then there are plenty of leather alternatives on the market.

Wore these boots on a three week mountaineering expedition in central asia. These boots are extremly heavy and make long days at altitude even more tiring. The boots also caused severe blistering around both of my ankles. I would not recomend them.
