Great boot, weird fit.
I use a Garmont boot because I like the design. I think the buckles, the overlap construction, the sole, and the general design are the most simple and useful on the market. However, the fit is a bit weird on these boots. The toe box is very narrow, and the heel pocket is too large. I think next year's shells are supposed to be updated to accommodate this. If you have the patience to do the bootfitting required to get these to fit, you'll love them, but for an out-of-the-box fit these aren't the best.
