The Raichle All-Degree Lite GTX is quite simply among the most comfortable 3/4-season boots you will find – well-padded in all the right places, easy to lace up and very supportive. The fit’s quite broad, and they are also really light.
Hard to fault, the All-Degree is light and agile enough to compete with most high- performance three-season boots, yet has the added bonus of being crampon-compatible when it does snow.

Verdict: Perfect if you only want one pair of high-level boots – summer or winter – yet only envisage strapping on crampons a few times a year. Best for broader feet.
