Slip into Boreal's Stetind Mountaineering Boot and start pushing your way to the summit of the breathtakingly beautiful pinnacle that this boot was named after. Designed for technical alpinism during high mountain ascents, the Stetind Boot boasts a highly waterproof, supremely breathable, and durably abrasion-resistant gaiter to protect you from extreme weather. Inside the gaiter, the Stetind has three layers of Thinsulate insulation for assured warmth in low temperatures. Underfoot, there's a Vibram Teton rubber sole for reliable traction when the mountain's base is bushy, muddy, rocky, and slippery, and automatic crampon compatibility helps you stay afoot when the ascent gets icy and vertical.

I did not buy this boot, but tried it on at the 5th Season near Mt. Shasta, CA. I have wide feet (fore-foot and toes) and high arches and I easily get cold feet. There are only two boots I have tried that fit me well: This boot (Boreal Stedind) and the Scarpa Phantom 6000s. The only reason I did not buy the Stedind is because it is not a double boot. I wear size 8.5-9 running shoes, but I wear size 43 (10) mountaineering boots.
Are these boots suitable for a 7000mts peak expedition?
Hey Rafael! No, I would not consider this to suitable for a 7,000m boot. I would look more towards a double boot, with more insulation. I think if one ran really warm and potentially had an over boot bootie to go with it, then they could definitely get away with these boots, but they are not ideal. Feel free to give me a call or an email, and I would love to hear what peaks you're looking at as well as chat more with about getting you into a more suitable boot for 7,000m peaks.
