"Great but a bit narrow boots"
I can agree with the others that the boots are great, tho keep in mind that these ones have a narrower design, but the toebox itself is relatively wide and roomy.
"Love the boots great feal"
Put them on went to work love them and they look good to omc gear gave me a great price thanks
"Narrow toe box."
I have owned 2 other pair of La Sportiva boots and have enjoyed them immensely. However, this recent pair (Pamir hiking) have a very narrow toe box. La Sportiva does not offer them in wide sizes and I developed a blister within 3 miles. It is recommended to go up 1 size over your regular size due to the tight fit, but I had to go 2 sizes up. Also, these boots do not have a very good grip once the soles become even the slightest bit wet. I have never had problems in the past with La Sportiva, but now I have a pair of boots I cannot wear. I purchased a pair of Asolo boots and they fit and feel great. Sorry La Sportiva, but you lost this customer unless you make a wider toe box like in the past.
The boot is strictly off the Chain!!!! Don't be cheap grab a pair. Great for my line of work utility lineman...
"Overall, theyre they are very good trekking or backpacking boots that handle technical terrain very well."
I've had the boots for almost a year now and i have worn then almost everyday. They're stiff boots, which is excellent for more technical terrain, but because of this the boots will only break in so much. They have great support, for I have only sprained my ankle once in them I have very wide feet and the boots stretched a little after a while and in turn became more comfortable. Some of the black rubber on the upper has come unglued, but that wasn't hard to fix. They are not insulated but with some warm socks do fine in the snow. They're okay with crampons but of course step-in crampons don't work with these guys. It seems that La Sportiva expects that their insoles will be replaced because they were very very thin and offered little additional comfort. I wore threw them after 8 months of use. They're pricey for trekking boots, but I have found them to be worth the price.
