Spring-time snow climbs

    Great boots for spring-time snow climbs with longer approaches: Rigid enough for crampons yet comfortable for the approach. The leather definitely needed additional water-proofing. As with most heavy leather boots, they need to be taken out a few times before spending a full day in them.


      They are very comfy and light boots. I tried it out for a 2 h hike around the town before going on a big trip to Mt Rainier. The boots did not hurt me at all although I had a 40+ lbs backpack and hiked up 4.5 miles with a 4600 ft elevation gain; so they did not need a break-in period. Crampons were very comfortably fitting on the boots. I treated the leather with a conditioner after purchasing it and gladly they did not got wet when passing through glaciers. I need to note though that my feet are 35.5 and I needed to buy a pair of 38; the sizing is off.

      Could anyone tell me what the weight/height difference between the regular La Sportiva Glacier Boot and the EVO Boot is? I only found the regular Glacier on the La Sportiva page. I am looking for a back-up pair of boots for wildland firefighting, and know that the Glacier Boot is approved (in certain sizes), but was wondering if the EVO would be ok also.

      Also, does anyone know where to find the overall heights of the boot in different sizes? I need an 8" boot...I'm guessing the women's is too short, but need to find out if the smaller men's sizes would be too short also. I believe my size is around a 39.5.

      Thanks to anyone that can help!

      what is a newmatic crampon? Would the black diamond strap crampon work on this boot? How would you compare the La Sportiva Womens Nepal Evo boot to this boot?


      A newmatic crampon has a heel lever which clamps to the ridge on the heel of this boot. A newmatic crampon will also have a fabric strap around the toe.The BD Sabertooth is a good example of a 12 point newmatic crampon. The BD contact strap crampon is full straps- toe and hell. It will work here and on any boot.

      I'm looking for an all-around boot that can handle everything from light day hiking with a small pack load ~20lbs to backpacking part of the Appalachian trail with ~ 50lb load, and still handle Mt. Rainer and Alaska glaciers while still being comfortable. Would you suggestthe glacier evo or the regular glaciers?

      Just wondering what is the difference between the regular Glacier boots versus the Glacier Evo's?

      Best Answer

      There are a few differences. First off the EVO is a heavier duty boot made for more of a range from heavy backpacking, glacier travel to mountaineering. It does have a little bit more advanced lacing system with a locking mechanism. The sole is just a little grippier on the EVO for ice or glacier travel. Also the EVO has a 3/4 shank where the other has just a 1/2 shank. One thing I do like better about the regular glaciers is that they are using Perwanger leather which I'm a huge fan of. Both are great boots. Just a little different in a few areas.Hope that helps.
