Ease the pain.
A far cry from the bulky alpine boots of yesteryear, the La Sportiva Men's Trango Tower GTX Mountaineering Boot offers ultralight warmth and support to help you scale towering peaks in remarkable comfort—relatively speaking, at least. After all, if you don't suffer a little, then the mountain wasn't big enough.
Gore-Tex Performance Comfort keeps your foot dry when you get caught off-guard by a freak snowstorm in the middle of summer, but still breathes well to keep you from overheating at lower altitudes. The rugged upper with Honey-Comb reinforcements withstands the roughest punishment the mountain can dish out. PU in the midsole offers support and cushioning when moving over rocky terrain, and EVA inserts decrease weight while still absorbing impacts and providing excellent rebound. Rounding it out is a Vibram One outsole for reliable traction on precarious ridgelines and the durability needed to withstand season after season in the high alpine. This sole is also equipped with an Impact Brake System for better control on descents.

So Far So Good
I went a half size larger than normal and they are a bit tight. After a short five mile hike I can see where they are going to break in. I am spending the next year in Europe and hope to put them to good use. Ankle support is above what I expected from the get go. These boots feel more like a stronger alpine boot than I thought they would. Not a complaint. I am 6' 6" and weigh in at 250 so I can use all the support they can offer. At the same time they are light and didn't feel like I was working hard to move forward. More to follow, but as of right now I am happy as always with their product.
