NB The sole unit of this boot is made of very lightweight material that is only robust enough for use on snow and ice with the occasional bit of rock and probably will only last for two expeditions. Thus it is ideal for 8000m peaks but not perhaps for Aconcagua etc where much of the ascent is on scree. However the sole can easily be replaced with a standard rubber sole unit once it has worn out.
