anybody every put some strap on crampons on these boots?

chr,

Are you shopping for boots? Or are you shopping for crampons? The answer changes a bit one way or the other. To put it simply: I would not put crampons on these boots. However, what types of activities are you hoping to do and what kind of crampons do you intend to use?

I'm mainly going to be backpacking and hiking in them; however, I need to make sure whatever boot I get can handle a crampon, similar to a black diamond. I'll be in the N Cascades for a few days with them. I don't want mountaineering boots... to uncomfortable.
Any thoughts or insights are appreciated.
Tx!

It sounds like you're going to be spending quite a bit of time in the snow, yes? Even if you don't want to get a mountaineering boot, you probably want to look at something with additional waterproofing, such as a boot with a Gore Tex liner. Nothing like soggy feet to ruin your day. For a similar boot with more water proofing, check out the Moran:

Or the lighter Fugitive
