All-around Fantastic BootIn my experience with many boot brands (Lowa, Asolo, La Sportiva, Scarpa, etc.). Zamberlan may be the most precisely-crafted boot of all of them. They are still made in Italy and the fine details are immediately noticeable. I own both this boot and the 996 Vioz which is basically this boot's bigger brother and they are both amazing. The soles are so well-suited for varied terrain and I feel both comfortable and locked-in when hiking at faster speeds with a pack. I'm a big Asolo fan, as well, and put Zamberlan right there with them. These fit true-to-size for me whereas I had to go a half size up in my Asolos. I have a medium foot width. I highly recommend Zamberlan. GREAT stuff!
