|Review:||These boots are a new purchase for me. They have performed extremely well so far, keeping the toes warm and working well with flexible, step-in crampons, as well as by themselves, and while strapped into a pair of snowshoes. |
On one long hike, they did get wet inside, but I believe that was primarily due to my decision to not wear gaitors. Assuming you don't want to go ice climbing (these boots are too flexible for front pointing), you can't go wrong purchasing a pair of these boots. They have been much more comfortable than I expected them to be.
