Amazing shoes

The lightest and warmest boots I’ve ever owned. Only problem is the outer material around the tongue starts to fray after a season but still functional and so so warm.

Safe and secure mountaineering with expedition boots

Expedition Boots

Expedition boots are an essential piece of equipment if you really want to head up high into the mountains! Even the name evokes a sense of adventure, icy heights, snowy peaks and untouched nature. Expedition boots are a type of trekking boot made for extreme conditions. Temperatures of -50 °C are no problem for expedition boots thanks to their excellent insulating ability. The feet are kept warm by insulating layers and protected from the cold and, more importantly, against frostbite.

What do expedition boots need to be able to do?

Good expedition boots are made of high-quality materials, because they have to be absolutely reliable in even the most extreme of conditions. They need to be highly insulating, but also breathable, because thermal efficiency decreases rapidly when there is moisture inside the boot. This can be particularly dangerous in cold conditions and can even lead to frostbite in extreme cases. Lots of expedition boots have integrated gaiters which help support thermal efficiency and protect against moisture.

One step at a time towards the summit in your expedition boots

As with trekking boots, it is extremely important for expedition boots to have a non-slip sole made of high-quality material. Sure footing is essential up in the mountains and the sole needs to provide you with optimum grip both on the way up and on the way down. Expedition boots must also be crampon-compatible, because safety is the number one priority in the mountains and on the glaciers. Quality comes at a price, and expedition boots aren't exactly cheap. But they are certainly a worthwhile investment! If you're looking to scale the highest peaks, you won't be able to do it without a pair of solid, safe and warm expedition boots.
