The Lowa Weisshorn. Nothing Better.
The best all-around boot I have ever worn is the Lowa Weisshorn. I have been lucky enough to try a bunch of boots over the years, including similar models like SCARPA’s Mont Blanc and LaSportiva’s Nepal Extreme, which are both excellent in their own right(s). The Weisshorn, though, walks better than the Nepal and climbs better than the Mont Blanc. The Weisshorn sets a pretty high bar for alpine footwear.
