When established trails aren't really an option.
From Himalayan treks to hauling a heavy pack across remote mountain ranges where trails are far and few between, the Scarpa Men's Grand Dru GTX Mountaineering Boot was designed and built for rugged mountain terrain, primitive trails, and packing heavy backpacks. When you encounter mud, frequent creek crossings, and wet brush, the Grand Dru's waterproof and breathable Gore-Tex membrane ensures that your feet stay dry and you don't have to dry out soggy socks after you set up camp after a day on the trail. Adding to the overall durability of the boot, Scarpa built the Grand Dru with an Italian-crafted Perwanger suede upper that's reinforced by a burly rubber rand for added protection. A stiff midsole puts an emphasis on stability while navigating rock-strewn trails and talus slopes, and it's compatible with hybrid (semi-automatic) crampons when you need some extra bite to reach your objective.

I bought these boots less than two weeks ago and they are becoming my favorite pair I've ever owned. The fit is excellent. I have very narrow feet. In most boots I have a lot of problems with side to side movement, but not with these. They snug right up and fit like a boot should. The tread on them are very aggressive which I like. The tow box is roomy enough for me to be able to wiggle my toes and not slam into the front of the boot on steep downhills. If you're looking for an aggressive solid boot that is comfortable, look no further.
