    La Sportiva Trango S EVO GTX Mountaineering Boots - Men's is rated 4.6667 out of 5 by 6.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Boot I was apprehensive about buying boots on line, however these actually fit perfect. Some reviews and other sites say these run narrow, however I consider my foot to be average to wide and have no complaints. They are soft enough for an approach hike and still stiff enough for alpine climbing with or without crampons. I wouldn't use these on sustained vertical ice. For me, these had a very short break in period and felt good walking around right out of the box. These may not be the warmest boots and are not 'recommended' for high altitude or winter climbs.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from These are great boots As is usual with the quality of La Sportiva products I'm quite happy with these boots. I tend to have low volume feet and the Nepal last (I also own the Nepal Top for ice climbing) has always treated me well - the Trangos use the same last. They fit my need for a light weight mountaineering boot for summer and winter climbs in California. The boot has also has generous rand for additional friction/stickiness. Used as a backpacking boot I wouldn't know - I tend to backpack in tennis shoes.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great summer mountaineering boots The Trangos are a fantastic summer / superlight mountaineering boot. If your needs include a rigid sole with a running shoe upper look here. The toe box is very flat, however. If you have a high volume forefoot really think if this will bother you. The toe box is flat in order to rocker the front of the boot. This feature, combined with the weight makes these things hike like a dream. If you're going fast & light these are hot. They work great with G12's, but with the spikes on you see the drawback from the rocker - Sportiva couldn't make the toe box any taller or it wouldn't accept the crampons. These have minimal ankle support, which also aids the fast & light scene. I love them but also have Nepals for slow, heavy & warm needs. I'm guessing durability may be a concern, but will likely get several years of sweet summits out of them.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Comfortable, easy to break in These boots are ridiculously comfortable. My feet are perfectly snug in these with no hot spots or other problems. In what is probably pure luck, these required pretty much zero break-in time with me and I was able to wear them on a climb about a week after buying them with zero problems.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from On my 4th pair I am on my 4th pair. I am a podiatrist as well as teach climbing. Because I use these year round (because of a foot issue), they get used every week on everything from ice, snow, rock, and trails. They work well for climbing rock and crampons work well on both ice and snow. I personally chose and understand that I am trading them wearing out earlier than other boots to get the lightness and support. I am having a pair resoled now with a new rand so will see how that works. Overall will continue to buy them until something better comes out that is this light!

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not a high-mileage boot As a mountaineering boot, it's great with snowshoes and crampons, has a sturdy platform, and the lifted heel makes inclines easy. However, I had trouble with comfort on high-mileage trips. I bought this as a backpacking boot (which was silly) and had lots of trouble with my pinky toes and friction. Honestly, I did about 50 miles in Crocs rather than use this boot all day. Also, the boot didn't withstand wear-and-tear very well. At 100 miles, the sole began to separate. At 200 miles, visible wear showed layers. At 300 miles, the tip of the toe is pulling off. I'll return these and get some backpacking boots.
