Boot Type: Heavyweight Backpacking Boots
Make and Model: La Sportiva Makalu
Approximate Weight: Really Heavy
Review: My feet don't take kindly to boots, I've had problems with every pair I've owned. When I bought these I was looking for a really stiff boot that I could break in for a trully custom fit. The Maklus took forever to break in, but fit very nicely in the end. I've encountered blisters on my heels due to the deep heel cup, however one blister on each foot is better than a foot full of blisters. They are an excellent all around boot if you are willing to lug them around. They're dry, a sturdy (full length steel shank), and cozy. Plus the support the use of toe bail crampons.
