La Sportiva Trango Cube (2014)

£275.00

Reducing weight in many products is relatively easy, but when it comes to stiff mountaineering boots there are limits to what can be achieved. Or at least that used to be the case, before La Sportiva turned to modern technology for an answer. Mountaineering boots have to be stiff to allow them to take crampons, hold an edge when climbing ...

Salewa Blackbird EVO (2014)

£225.00

The Salewa Blackbird EVO is a remarkable boot at a very reasonable price. It has Gore-Tex Duratherm inside, which offers extra insulation, making it warmer than any other boots in the same price bracket. The upper is synthetic with a leather overlay and there isn’t too much stitching, so it should be durable, but you also get a rubber rand ...

Zamberlan Fitz Roy GTX (2014)

£250.00

At 1832g (pair, size 11) the Zamberlan Fitz Roy GTX is the lightest boot in our test. The weight saving comes in part from the synthetic microfibre upper, which has minimal overlays of additional material. This appears to be a very durable option, and further protection is provided by a full rubber rand. Underfoot sits a Vibram New Mulaz sole ...

The North Face Verto S6K Glacier GTX (2014)

£330.00

The North Face’s Verto S6K Glacier GTX is designed to be used up to 6000m on Alpine mountains and glaciers, and if you grab it between toe and heel and try to bend the sole, it’s clear this is a true 4-season boot because there’s plenty of stiffness in that sole unit. Inside the boot there’s also a layer of ...

Hanwag Cengalo GTX (2014)

£235.00

The Hanwag Cengalo GTX is lighter than it first appears as it weighs in at 1914g (pair, size 11), making it the third lightest in our test – and its price tag is also very appealing. The boot has an upper made from a mix of synthetic materials with small areas of suede leather, and it also has a full ...

Mammut Magic GTX (2014)

£220.00

At 1908g for a size 11 pair, the Mammut Magic GTX is the second lightest and the lowest-priced boot in our test, so it’s instantly appealing, as all 4-season boots are relatively heavy and pricy compared with bendy 3-season boots. The upper is made primarily from synthetic materials with leather overlays and there’s a large amount of stitching here, which ...

Scarpa Manta Pro GTX (2014)

£280.00

The Scarpa Manta has long been the definition of a 4-season British mountain walking and mountaineering boot. This year it has received a radical facelift that transforms its appearance and moves it a step away from its more traditional-looking predecessor. The upper is made from a mix of leather and synthetic materials, with a dash of silver and orange to ...

Asolo Sherpa GV (2014)

£240.00

The Asolo Sherpa GV has always been a relatively well-priced option compared to other 4-season boots. It’s built around a one-piece leather upper, for maximum durability and water resistance, but you also get a Gore-Tex waterproof lining to ensure dry feet in the wettest of conditions. In addition, there’s a rubber rand around the whole boot for maximum levels of ...

AKU SL Pro GTX (2014)

£295.00

The AKU SL Pro GTX is rated as B2/B3, so it is stiffer than a normal B2-rated 4-season boot and so when compared with other B2-rated 4-season boots it is just too stiff. For hillwalking this is a drawback, as it is quite uncomfortable underfoot. However if you were looking for a boot for mountaineering and climbing rather than purely ...

Lowa Cevedale Pro GTX (2013)

£270.00

The Lowa Cevedale Pro GTX is lighter than first appearances may suggest and at 1922g (pair, size 11) it is third lightest in our test, behind the Mammut Magic GTX and the Zamberlan Fitz Roy GTX. Yet it also has the most aggressive outsole of any boot we looked at, with 6mm deep lugs that are very widely spaced plus ...

First test: Scarpa Manta Pro GTX (2013)

£280.00

Some things in life go together so well that they should never be fiddled with, such as Simon and Garfunkel, bacon and egg, and the Scarpa Manta and its leather upper. But Scarpa has just given the Manta a facelift that involves losing the blue leather upper and replacing it with a mix of leather and synthetic microfibre overlays. Can ...

Like some other boots in our test the Hanwag Friction GTX has a Gore-Tex Duratherm-insulated lining for extra warmth on high Alpine peaks.

La Sportiva Trango Extreme Evo Light GTX (2013)

£300.00

There are various versions of the Trango in the La Sportiva range, and this Extreme Evo Light GTX version is designed for the alpinist, rather than the more general mountaineering user who would suit the Trango Light GTX or Trango S Evo GTX. To that end the Trango Extreme Evo Light GTX has an insulated lining, and it does feel ...

Mammut Monolith GTX (2013)

£200.00

The Mammut Monolith GTX has been around for a few years now, and it’s well-priced for what you get. The boot has a slightly more ‘mountaineering’ appeal than some others, but it’s equally attractive to those who prefer a little more support when walking. The upper is a mix of fabric and leather, with a Gore-Tex lining to provide waterproof ...
