Thunder Boot

    Very nice boot had to add a superfeet but that's normal with most boots insole then the first time really used was on a hike on Cumberland Island Ga all flat but we did around 30 miles in 3 days can't wait to see how they work in the mountains. Overall this is a great boot.

    Very happy

      These are the latest boots I have bought in a long line of buying lasportiva boots for years. I do this with every new lasportiva boots... warmed the boots by the wood stove an applied severe coats nix wax leather cream once the boots are warm hand rub the cream into all the leather and it really made them soft and water proof. Spen the next few weeks wearing the boots around the house like there slippers. I finly wore the boots out side for a light 6 mile hike and am very pleased with how they feel and are very comfortable no blisters or soreness feel good on my wide feet and have broken in well

      La Sportiva Thunder II GTX Hiking Boot - Men's

        These boots run a little small. I am usually a size 10.5 but got an 11 or Euro 44.5 in this boot for a proper fit. I have an older pair of similar LaSportiva boots with a more breathable mesh. They held up for three years of rocky Arizona trail maintenance work and I hope to get the same out of the new ones. I like the grip of the vibram soles and the rugged toe protection. Great boot overall for my needs.

        Comfort

          Got to be one of the most comfortable pair of boots i've owned and through my career in the British Army,i've owned a few.Only had them for about a month now,so next time i'm home,in Scotland,i'm goin trekking,so i'll give you an update then.

          Moderate Hiking

            I've been using La Sportiva boots for (mostly) day hiking with a moderate pack for about six years. Unfortunately the models change over time (from Storm to Thunder to Thunder II), so there is always the worry that the next model may not be as good as the previous one. Luckily they all seem fit me rather well. I hike between 600 and 1500 miles a year (retired) and I haven't had a single blister in all the six years.
            Obviously, boots are a very personal thing. La Sportiva makes the best fitting boots for MY feet. I buy a new pair about every 18 months. I have them resoled once, but after that they're pretty much shot.

            5 days 4 nights 40 miles

              I'm now 100% convinced these were the right boots for me! I was looking for a light weight boot that could handle a heavy pack for multiple days, and be versatile enough for an annual winter ascent (The one pair to kill 'em all). I chose La Sportiva because I the fit is the best, and this model was the right style for my average trip. On top of everything else, Backcountry.com offered an amazing deal, and these boots required no break in time. I only had slight calluses on the bottom of my feet, probably because it was hot out and I was wearing thick socks...changing to thinner ones would have helped my feet stay cooler and free from the rough stuff. I only rate these a 4, should be a 4.5 because of some slight delaminating of the rubber around the top of the shoe...purely cosmetic.

              I've had a pair of Thunder GTX boots for a couple of years and I really like the roomy toe box. However, they are a little bit light weight for hiking with a heavy pack. Does anyone know of a heavier boot with a toe box similar to these?
