I'm trying to choose between this one and the Hanwag Alaska. I go mostly without crampons, but would like to be able to use crampons once in a while for the final bits of an ascent. This one seems more suitable for crampons, but my concerns are (1) that they won't be as long-lasting as full-leather boots, (2) that they will be too wide for my narrow feet. Any views on that, i.e. does Scarpa usually fit their boots narrow or wide, and is my view correct that all these new materials aren;t as robust?
The Triolet Pro is mostly leather with a full rubber rand and is one of our most popular boots for Mountain Guides so you can be assured that they will be plenty robust. People looking for a lighter (aka less robust boot) will go with the Charmoz which is all synthetic materials. The Triolet Pro tends to run pretty average for width so unless your feet are really really narrow you should be okay.
