Clint McCulloch wrote a review of La Sportiva Makalu Mountaineering Boot - Men's on August 14, 2006
This is the second pair that I've had. They break in a little hard, but it's worth it. We packed into the Absoroka Beartooth Wilderness, eight miles last week. The boot performed wonderfully, its stiff enough that you can barely feel rock under your feet. The toe is ridged enough if you stub or have to kick in you dont pay the price for doing so.
