Men's Alpine Expert GTX
The Lowa Alpine Expert GTX is hands down the best mountaineering boot I have ever owned. I have worn the equivalent boot made by La Sportiva but they were always a bit too narrow. The Alpine Experts really fit my medium to wide foot perfectly. I sized up one full size from my street shoe size and that was the ticket. They are great for long approaches and perform well on moderate to steep ice. I used them for the first time ice climbing in Hyalite Canyon this winter and they really helped make the experience that much more pleasant. I highly recommend this boot for anyone with medium to wide feet.
