Title: Mountaineering boots for a newbie
Post by: alakso on Dec 15 2005, 04:31
I know someday I'll need plastic Mountaineering boots for the big Mountains. For right now I'm looking for a great pair of leather boots to use when I won't need plastic boots.

What does everyone recommend for great leather Mountaineering boots?

Are leather boots with a seperate liner recommended?

I take size 12 and have a D width and tend to have cold feet.

I've been looking at the La Sportiva Nepal Evo GTX.

Any brands/boots to stay away from due to being to narrow, not warm, or heavy-clumsy?
