I picked these up for my wife as an all 'round, all purpose boot. They are set up very well with Perwanger leather which is the best stuff in my opinion. The have an incredibly durable sole with plenty of traction. I don't know that I would get into much terrain needing crampons with them but they'll do fine for everything else. They fit as La Sportiva's typically do so they're a little narrow and true to size in the length. They come fairly stiff soled but pretty comfy straight out of the box.
