jdstrongwrote a review of Vasque Super Alpinista Mountaineering Boot - Men's on November 15, 2006
Confused by the choice between non-water resistant leather or hard plastic boots? This boot is an excellent middle ground. The boot is made of a thick fabric surrounded by a flexible plastic, combined with a quick lacing system and excellent in-step crampon compatible soles. It takes some breaking in and as usual TRY BEFORE YOU BUY with any boot. I wear two sets of socks (main and liner) to prevent blisters and fill the boots and they fit perfectly. Also, these are mountaineering boots and will not serve well for extended hiking (there is a full shank preventing sole flexation).
