This is the all-round mountaineering boot everyone wears in europe, and for good reason!
Firstly, the quality of build is outstanding. Every seam, every overlap is perfect. The yellow leather upper is superbly moulded to hold your foot firmly without twisting or feeling like a ski boot, and the adjustable lacing system with locking eyes allows ultra-quick adjustments throughout the day. They are fully waterproof of course, and the insulation ensures that even when your fingers have dropped off without you noticing, your feet will stay warm.
The performance of the boot is no less impressive - the upper allows just enough flex to make them comfortable to walk in, but retains its moulding to pull the foot round to the toe for great precision. The sole is unbreakably rigid, but the vibram rubber transmits all the feel you need, and the innovative sticky rubber rands permit a surprising degree of technical rock climing to be confidently tackled!
Lastly, the Nepal Extremes take wire bailed crampons with a fit like a glove. The superbly rigid sole prevents any bending, and the power is delivered right to the big toe where mono points would be.
Anyone who climbs in the mountains, from beginners to experts, would benefit from these boots' superb features. You'll never want to replace them.
