    Should you fancy some ice climbing in the Dolomites of Italy, where The North Face Men's Verto S4K Ice GTX Boot claims its craftsmanship, you'll find your feet in good hands, so to say. Gore-Tex Duratherm keeps your feet dry while you're busting through snow crust and climbing ice walls, but still allows your feet to breath while you struggle with a tricky ascent. The Vibram Mulaz sole provides the grip you need on snowy approaches, and includes a toe and heel welt for step-in crampons when the going gets rough.

    The sharp edges of the daunting task ahead are made softer by the comfortable details this mountaineering boot provides. A multi-layered footbed combines a 2mm molded OrthoLite top layer with 3mm of EVA to promote natural foot positioning as you climb. The Cradle TPU midsole is engineered to absorb impact from ice and rock, stabilizing your foot for reliable support, while providing additional cushioning and comfort. 

    • Mountaineering boots designed for ice climbing and alpine ascents
    • Gore-Tex membrane provides waterproof and breathable performance
    • Vibram Mulaz outsole offers superior grip on ice and snow
    • Insulated for long days on ice walls and setting boot packs
    • Multi-layered footbed provides cushioning and support
    • Smartlite PU mudguard discourages buildup and associated weight
    • Lace closure and steel eyelets provide a durable, secure fit
    • Item #TNF02VZ

    Doesn’t work for wide feet

    • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: 10
    • Height: 6'1"
    • Weight: 180lbs

    I’m a fan of the North Face brand. And I also have weird feet: left one is 10E; right one is 10EEE. Bought these in size 10 and laced ‘em up to walk around the house. Length was perfect, true-to-fit. Width-wise, left one was snug, with thin sock liner and medium-thick wool sock. Right one was going to cut off my circulation. I’m sure it’s a great boot, but not for an exceptionally-wide foot. On to other styles/brands.

    Comfy single boot system

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: Runs small
    • Size Bought: 11
    • Height: 5'11"
    • Weight: 180lbs

    Honestly this boot is enough for most of what you can do in the contiguous US. I've used it ice climbing and on 12.5k peak in March. Kept me warm with quality wool socks and was comfortable the whole way up. A great boot for someone just getting into mountaineering or Ice Climbing that doesn't want to break the bank right away. Our gear closet at backcountry doesn't have hal sizes, so keep that in mind, but for reference I use a size 11 in these boots, but a size 10 in the TNF's S6K's.

    Ice Climbing WOW!

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: 9
    • Height: 5'10"

    Loved the fit on these shoes. I would maybe want a little more width in the toe box, but once I was happy with how i laced and tied them up, I was super warm, and comfortable on my first couple Ice Assents. I normally wear a size ten in most shoes, and I actually fit in to the size 9 boot with room for a thick sock, but could wear a half size up for longer and colder days. I WOULD recommended!

    Great Starter Boot

    I'm relatively new to Ice climbing and tested these out last weekend. Comfortable and warm in the teens. They keep you dry and offered enough technical maneuverability for someone new to ice climbing like myself.

    I was impressed

    For what ever reason I had stopped looking at The North Face when it comes to technical gear but I gave these boots a shot and brought them out for my first day of Ice Climbing this year. They are warm and very comfortable. Maybe a bit narrow around the foot so they might not be the best for a wide footed person.
    Bottom line is if your setting yourself up with Ice Climbing gear you can spend more on some dope tools like the Petzl Nomics and save yourself some cash with these bad boys. Their probably the best price for performance you'll get with an ice climbing specific boot.
