Rated 5 out of 5 by from Where have these been all my life?! I’m a 45 year old lineman. Turned on to these by some younger mine hands. Climbed a 60 and over a Hughes arm a week after I got them. Never been so comfortable climbing in my career. They’re awesome. Take some time to break in, but great boots overall.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome Most comfortable boots I’ve ever bought. Took a little bit to brake in but after a week very comfortable. Made for the outdoors adventure. As a lineman great to climb in too.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Solid boot Purchased these boots about a month ago for Tree work And have been using them straight from the box. No major issues with hot spots or blistering. The only change I would make is the lining. Personally would prefer solid leather as cloth liners wear out too quickly. Otherwise a great boot...super stiff. I have some P.N.W. climbs planned for this summer so we will see how they deal with the mixed terrain.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from La Sportiva Great boot. True fit and my feet never bothered me even when they weren’t broken in. Would definitely recommend to anyone looking for something better than a Red Wing or Chippewa logger boot.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Bomb Mountaineering Boots I bought these specifically for mountaineering and couldn’t be happier. The break in period can be rough but once you get past it you won’t want to take these bad boys off.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from GREAT BOOTS I am a lineman and my first pair of boots lasted almost 4.5 years before some of the threads finally broke. I wore these boots roughly 60 hr a week.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Simply awesome! This is my second pair of Makalus and i love them! If you climb power poles like i do, do yourself a favor and get some! Few days to break in but then oh so comfy! Good on the ground too.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Boot Im an apprentice Lineman bought these boots about a month ago. Takes a while to break in. But once broke in they are a great boot. Perfect for climbing.

I am a lineman. I climb power poles. need a boot that is waterproof, steal shank all the way across, and has a steal or composite toe. I heard a lot of good things about your boots and hoping you can help me find the right boot. Thanks Jeff

Asked by: Jeff
jeff........won't last for you ............ get the old style REAL and heavy boots...........Galibier sg..........heavy, but will last long after you have broken in

Are they steel or composite toe though?!... I'm curious cause I want a pair but I need the safety toe!!...

Asked by: Elbery20
Hiya Elbery20, thanks for your question! Sorry, this boot does not have a steel or composite toe. Here is one that does: Danner Men's Vicious 4.5IN GTX NMT Boot https://www.moosejaw.com/moosejaw/shop/product_Danner-Men-s-Vicious-4-5IN-GTX-NMT-Boot_10321945_10208_10000001_-1_ Hope this helps!

What kind of waterproofing should I use on these boots?  I have heard Nikwax but just wanted to hear another opinion.

Asked by: Rick
Hiya Rick, thanks for your question! There are generic brands like Scotchgard and KIWI on the market. At the moment, we only carry Nikwax and Ugg waterproofing products. I personally prefer Nikwax waterproofing products.... they're lightweight, breathable and they don't leave a tacky film. Additionally, the Nikwax company has made a commitment to protecting our environment. Bonus! I'm sorry I don't have any recommendations!

do these boots have any ASTM ratings ?

Asked by: Rednex
Hiya, thanks for the question! Sorry, there is no ASTM rating for this boot. La Sportiva boots aren't safety rated by an organization or classified as such. Hope this helps!

LA SPORTIVA SIZE and FIT NOTES
• La Sportiva footwear is built and offered on European half sizes, which are smaller increments than US half sizes. This gives them four extra sizes per size run, and ultimately gives you a better fit.
• Find your US Size in the guide above, then find the Euro Size conversion and ADD ONE HALF SIZE.
• The ideal size holds your toes ever so slightly away from the front of the boot while the lacing system is snug across the top of your arch.
• If you can try to boots on beforehand, make sure you wear the same size and weight socks you would typically wear with the boots, and any orthotics or custom footbeds you use.
• It is ideal to fit boots later in the day since feet are prone to swell slightly as a day progresses.
• Wear your boots indoors only until you are confident about the fit.
• Your foot should feel snug (not tight) from the arch back into the heel pocket with just a minimum lift as you walk. If your heel lifts make sure the lacing is snug and not too loose.
• Your toes should NOT touch the front of the boot, but when you kick the toe into the floor, you should know where the front of the boot is. You want just enough room to wiggle your toes.
• If your toes or sides of your feet feel squished, most likely the width is too narrow and the boot will not work for you.
• If your toes touch the front of the boot, most likely it is too short and you need the next half size up.
• Make sure to keep all original packaging that came with your boots until you are sure that you are happy with your purchase.
