Raichle Mount Envy GTX

These climbing boots have a smooth climbing zone on Vibram sole; high rubber rand for durability; exceptionally stiff sole flex; solid toe box; excellent heel support; Nubuck leather adds durability to synthetic upper; Gore-Tex waterproof lining. But very heavy at 2070g (pair, size 11); stiff sole means walking will not be as comfortable as others; upper not as durable as full leather.

Verdict: Buy them if you want a mountaineering boot for climbing.
