Barbara P.wrote a review of Garmont Celeste Alpine Touring Boot - Women's on March 21, 2013
This is my first 100% touring boot so I was nervous that it would not be stiff enough for skiing. My first thoughts putting them on were that I could hike to my favorite summer spots in these! The lugs on the bottom are huge and the bottom is canted like a mountaineering shell so you can actually walk. Skiing in them was not the issue I thought it would be they perform great on the way down! And they are light weight and flexible in walk-mode making the trip back up enjoyable. The cuff was a bit tight around my calf when it came stock but with a couple tools I could adjust the buckle to allow for some more room to buckle by placing the ladder the next hole over. The ski/walk mode is easy to switch back and forth too. For extra long hikes in you can adjust the forward lean 2 degrees to make your lower leg more upright for better walking and back to forward lean for the way down (however I haven't tried this yet but I'm sure it works great). For such a light boot it puts out a solid performance and the build of it doesn't feel flimsy either.
