    Like the vulture.

    The Salewa Vultur GTX Boot bags all the peaks and leaves nothing behind for other alpinists to enjoy. Its Gore-Tex Performance Comfort boasts undeniable waterproof protection as well as amplified breathability so you can beat any competition trudging to the summit. Perwanger suede leather grants the upper comfortable stretch and long-lasting durability, while the lining boasts a CleanSport NXT treatment for anti-odor comfort.
    Underfoot, the Vultur boasts the same technologies that Salewa's technical footwear feature; the 3F System uses three stays at the heel to enhance support, flexibility, and fit. Salewa also added an MFF+ interchangeable insoles for customized comfort. Vibram's WTC rubber gives the sole plenty of traction for slippery surfaces, and when the surfaces get steep, the WTC's hybrid crampon compatibility gets very convenient.

    Great fit, with a couple of nits

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: 47
    • Height: 6'3"

    This is a post-purchase, pre-use review based only on fit. I'll update this when I've had a chance to try them out in the real world.

    I have very difficult feet to fit - long, narrow, low volume, and flat. It's the rare boot that both provides enough room for my toes and locks in my heel to prevent blisters. I tried this boot, along with just about all of its competition from La Sportiva, Scarpa and Lowa, and this one fit the best. Light, comfortable, should be fairly warm with heavy socks. I bought these for summer glacier climbs in the cascades and can't wait to get out in them. For whatever reason, these fit me more comfortably than the Ravens, which are essentially the same design with synthetic materials, and weight difference between the two was 50g per boot.

    Cons:
    - The neon colors make my eyes hurt. Perhaps it would help with search and rescue due to their visibility from orbit. This was almost a deal breaker. I'd prefer something a little more muted.
    - I'd prefer simpler lacing hardware. The bottom eyelets (through the leather, as opposed to hardware attached to the leather, more common in heavy boots) don't work well with the heavy leather, creating gaps between sides and tongue that crud and snow will get into. All exterior hardware would be better for perwanger. Also, the fancy cam lock lack hardware and rollers seem like unnecessary potential points of failure, but we'll see.
    - Overall fit outweighs these concerns, however.

    Hey dford876014, are you able to comment on the fitting specifics? I wear an 8.5 street shoe in almost everything. I'm not sure whether to go with a 41 or a 42. I'm low volume, narrower at the heel but average/wide at the front. I want the solid lock and I want no toe bang on descents(best of both worlds). I would say I'm a solid 41.5 in La Sportiva, and a 42 in La sportive is getting too sloppy. Thanks
