    Comments about La Sportiva Spantik Boot:

    I haven't put these to the test yet as I've had to return for an exchange due to small sizing. The product appeared to be high quality, and I can't wait to get a size that fits so I can use them in the field.

    [...] I'm planning on using these boots in January for Aconcagua. The boots for other routes have performed flawlessly, and so easy to put on with adjustments.

    Comments about La Sportiva Spantik Boot:

    These boots have exceeded most of my expectations. They are very comfortable, once sized properly. Note, I had to increase from my normal size 44 to a size 45 because they felt a bit constrained on the top of my foot with my foot bed inserted. Lengthwise they seem about ½ size smaller than I expected, but then again my foot beds may have affected this fit too. Take all of this with a grain of salt, as others have told me that theirs fit more true. These boots are simple to lace/adjust on the outside and I have found that the inner boots can be quickly adjusted by adding/skipping eyelets. I haven’t had a lace break yet, but do carry a spare. Given the softer upper materials/design I wouldn’t expect these to last as long as a harder plastic boot might, but they should last several of my seasons. While they are warmer than my older plastics, I still needed over boots and chemical foot warmers on a recent (very cold) Aconcagua summit bid. Around the Pacific NW they have been plenty warm. I have also noticed that they seem to dry faster than my old plastics.

    Comments about La Sportiva Spantik Boot:

    I did a week run in these boots to break them in. I used the boots for my snowshoes, they fit my crampons like they where designed together. The only time my foot where cold in the spantik boot, was the first 15-20 minutes in the morning. Once your feet get warm in these boots they won't be cold again until you take them off. I put my liners in my bag and left my boots out in the vestibule.

    • Comfort:
    • Breathes Well, Supple
