La Sportiva Glacier Mountaineering Boot - Men's - 2007 BCS
If you've ever hunched over a map you couldn't quite trust or wondered if there might be some gnarly ice blocking your route, these are the boots for you. The La Sportiva Glacier Men's Mountaineering Boot is a heavy duty boot that can handle any terrain you might encounter in a week on the mountain. If the trail leads over a snowfield or onto a glacier you can slap on crampons and travel with confidence. The Glacier will even handle light mountaineering and it climbs alpine ice comfortably. With a little more flex and rocker than other heavy duty boots, it's more comfortable on long hikes with heavy loads. *AVAILABLE FOR NORTH AMERICAN SHIPMENT ONLY.

I would like to ask about how the sizing works with la sportiva boots. Do they tend to run larger or smaller? I wear a 10-10.5 typically

Very versatile boot and a lot for your dollar. They were comfy for an hour after the box so took them on a 12 hour climb (with a proper insert) and had zero problems. They were completely dry upon after a whole day in the snow. Yesterday I pushed them further into temperatures of 0 Degree F. and they stayed warm if I kept moving and kept breaks short. They performed better than expected during short intervals of ice climbing. The movable tongue helps a lot with fit as did the unique lacing system. For years I used once piece leather boots and tried synthetic boots with the Gortex. Now I am back to all leather for good.
