Great climbing boot
I absolutely love this boot the build quality is amazing and they ar very comfortable. Get a size lager than usual for a proper fit. I use these boots for both hiking and snowshoeing and they are great for both.

This boot, like some other things I owned from Italy, is all about the style. Quality is also top notch, build last forever. However, it is certainly not the most comfortable boot I have owned. First, the very stiff sole design translated into serious traction on snow, which was also the main reason I bought them. However, after I wear these boots and took a hike for more than 5 miles, it become very uncomfortable for my feet. The whole thing is way too stiff. If you simply just want some hiking boots, you might want to look some other places. It also contains a lot of leather material which absorb water easily. Although the Gore-Tex material did its job to stop the water from getting into it, these boots were become very cold my feet after walking in snow for several hours. One last thing to remember: buy these boots at least one full size larger than you normally wear!! I bought them half a size larger than my regular hiking boots and they felt tight on my feet.
