Please read this disclaimer before purchasing.
The following boots are not every day hiking boots. They’re mountaineering boots and are not flexible enough for most hikes. See the recommendations from Asolo in each description.
The Arc’teryx Acrux AR GTX Mountaineering Boots is a pinnacle of design for mountaineering, ice and mixed climbing, the Acrux AR is the lightest, most durable, and lowest profile insulated double boot available. Available in men’s sizes only. limited sizing left.
The Asolo AFS Evoluzione is for serious cold weather mountaineering. Asolo recommends it for “scrambling on icewalls and icefalls and suitable for winter works on the mountain.” The warm liner is made of velveteen, which can sometimes contain silk, but I verified with Asolo that this boot is completely synthetic. The outer boot is waterproof and provides support and stability, while still being lightweight. Available in men’s sizes only.
LaSportiva’s Baruntse are equipped with a PU coated 2-layer PE insulating outer boot for durable warmth. Insulated with Ibi-thermo, a fibrous synthetic material with superb insulating properties that won’t conduct cold from the ground up and locks in natural heat produced by the feet.
Also in men’s.
LaSportiva’s Trango S Evo GTX are some serious alpine mountaineering boots that have a 3D Flex ankle-hinge system which gives support for front-pointing while also staying flexible for walking. They’re waterproof and the Vibram soles give traction no matter what the surface conditions.
Also in men’s.
Mammut’s Magic Peak High GTX perfect fit makes this ultra-lightweight, fully crampon-compatible shoe essential for alpine climbing: the shape of the Magic Peak High GTX® is provided by an impressive robust organic Hybrid Shell made from TPU. Only in men’s.
Mammut’s Nordward 2.1 High is a warm 2-in-1 gaiter-boot with a removable inner boot is the perfect companion on mountain tours, ice climbing projects and expeditions.
