Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
Fit: Runs large
light double boots. thats pretty much the only positive to these high altitude over priced boots. after a complete ice climbing season in south central ak, and the central alaska range. i am utterly disappointed. especially the time i was 6 miles out on a approach and stepped in over the top of the toe box deep water. 3-4"inches and felt the water literally pore into the boot before the climb. that was after spending weeks trying to get the heel lift manageable to actually climb ice. rubber rand starting peeling off one month into owning them. after owning the spantiks this feel like a step backward. yes they have boa, they also have a nice pinch point right at the top of the foot. save your time and money and don't even bother looking at this boots as a possibility. stick with the spantiks or get the phantom 6000, thats what i will be trying.
