Nice boots

Overall very nice boots. They have been a little rough on my heels during the break-in period (mole skin a necessity). There's also a pinch behind the right ankle bone, I thought it was just me, but a friend that also has the boots said he experienced the same thing during the break in period.

Overall, though, they are very nice boots. The optional tongue liners they come with are super nice. I found they added a nice bit of warmth, and made them very comfy as well. Toe box room is also very adequate.

When buying these boots I compared them to Scarpa's and found the Nepal's just really fit nicely (a little lower volume). Overall, it felt like it held my foot better, with a little less slop. The sole also has just the right amount of rocker built into in the front that it's very natural to walk in.

Responded on

Can you tell me more about the pinching. I have a pair I just returned because of that exact thing. It happens especially when my right foot rolls to the inside as if stepping sideways on something sloping. I got another pair and they do the same thing and I'm thinking of taking them back. $500 boots should'nt pinch. Does this go away?? - Thanks?
