Why We Like The Trango Tech Leather GTX Mountaineering Boot
The La Sportiva Trango Tech Leather GTX Mountaineering Boot bridges the gap between being a backpacking and mountaineering boot that helps us confidently tackle all types of terrain. Its low profile sole and midsole allow technical footwork and edging capability when climbing easier graded routes, while also offering semi-automatic crampon compatibility for glacier travel.
The leather upper and GORE-TEX membrane keep your feet dry and protected across mountainous terrain, and the gusset free tongue construction increases comfort for long miles on the trail. Additionally, the Trango features a 3D Flex system that promotes precise support on rough terrain and a to-the-toe lacing system that delivers a precise fit for enhanced control. The latter's appreciated always, whether you're climbing a new route or traversing technical terrain.

Great boots but wont handle everything

I bought these for my first mountaineering boots and they have performed well in relatively mild conditions. The boots have enough flex that there is no issues using them on decently long approaches, but are still stiff enough to perform on steep snow and short scrambles. They kept my feet toasty on chilly days but my toes began to get pretty cold when the temp dropped to around 10F one evening hiking into camp at about 12,500 ft. All in all, great boot if you are looking for an affordable option to try the sport out or if you plan on sticking to well established routes in the lower 48 during early spring/late fall. If you plan to cross a glacier, you may want to look for a sturdier boot.
