Why We Like The La Sportiva Makalu Mountaineering Boot

La Sportiva's Makalu Mountaineering Boot delivers peak performance with classic style, whether we're grabbing one of the tallest summits in the world or trekking into the backcountry under a heavy pack. The full-length steel shank and resilient cushioning stabilize and soften our steps, keeping our feet spry and morale high as we push through grit-building conditions. When ice tries to stand in our way, the rugged sole bites hard and welcomes crampons.

Great boot

I do a lot of hiking at work and used them every day for 4 year. I am gonna retire them and buy a new pair. Highly recommended.

Not like the originals

I ordered these for my wife to replace an old pair. The sizing is about a 1/2 size small which is normal. There are some differences from the original. The deal breaker is that the tongue of the boot is removable and secured only to the boot by velcro. It’s padding does not taper toward the toe causing a wired bulge and potential issue. It is unfortunate as these boots otherwise are great and the other changes are positive like the capped toe.
