Great Boot!! Good out of the box.
So far, so good. I have had these for about a month now, and they were good right out of the box. They didn't need too much break in, and they are very strong and very warm. With synthetic wool blend socks these boots have done well for me in 0-10 degree hikes. My feet didn't even notice the cold.
The only fall back for me personally on these boots is i have a more long a narrow foot, Scarpa runs a little better for wider feet. They still fit well and seem to be great overall. We'll see as i continue to put miles on them and move into some very long hikes/mountaineering.
Highly recommend these!
