Alpine mountaineering shoes

Total Feet > Alpine mountaineering shoes

Their kingdom : steep walls and the glacier summits

Designed with very waterproof materials, the sole is very rigid in order to give the foot a stiffness for  a secure grip  while climbing and the use of automatic  crampons  on glacier sections The weight of the shoe is its enemy: more than 2000gr/shoe. The stiffness of the sole makes approach walks  very tiring. In recent years, a new generation of mountaineering boots has appeared, built with new materials, allowing the weight of the boot to be reduced while maintaining excellent thermal insulation and a more anatomical fit for greater precision.
