Wandrrwrote a review of Mammut Nordwand TL Mountaineering Boot - Men's on February 24, 2014
Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
Fit: True to size
This boot has many good features. I have climbed hard with the boot in wet, icy and cold conditions. I never had a problem with leaking and they keep your feet nicely warm in moderate cold. The easy pull lacing system and power strap work well together and the boots are quick to get on. The boot gaiter holds up to abuse. I think they could have done without the mammut stitching on the top of the boot. It looks good, but does nothing for the preformance(unravels and could be an eventual leakage issue). I treated mine with waterproof spray just in case but never had a leak. I have been on full day slog/climbs with these boots. They are a bit wide fitting in the heel. The only major issue I had with comfort has to do with the interior zipper pouch sewn at the base of he zipper. This reinforced pouch pushes into the top of my foot and eventually gets quite sore. I suppose that would have to do with foot shape, but it has been an issue for me. If you do feel I pushing down when you try them on, it might be an issue after many hours of wear. Light weight, precise on ice and good edging. Hope this helps! I gave them a 3 star because they hurt my feet. Otherwise they would be a 4.5.
