    Very comfortable boot right out of the box.

    Overall it's a good approach shoe for technical approaches and not too technical climbs.
    Thomas Blum
    The shoes are very sturdy and have a rigid, solid sole that is good for downclimbs.

    Friends:

    These are the best technical hiking shoes I have ever owned in 20 years of being an Alpinist. Technical moves on climbs up to YDS 5.5 can be accomplished as well as the approach with a light pack. These shoes offer technical control and comfort. I bought one size bigger than usual so I could wear warm, thick socks. I am the author of the book: " The Art of Solo Climbing " and I am very particular about what equipment I use on Alpine climbs that have long approaches like the Teton mountain range.

    I branched out from Salewa to get these shoes. I ordered an 8 after trying them on. I compared them to a pair of Salewa I have that are size 8.5 and found they are EXACTLY the same length. So, reader, know I had to order a whole half size smaller in the Garmont Dragontail Lite to get the perfect fit the Salewa 8.5 gives me. The Dragontail initially felt a little tight on my fat foot so I loosened the laces and have been pleased ever since. I have not tried the shoes in the mountains at all, but figure they would perform with excellent comfort and support. I have no reason to think otherwise. The tread is not as aggressive when compared to my Salewa Mtn. Trainer, a bummer but not a big deal. The shoes bend easily with my movements and feel beefy as a whole. The padding that surrounds the whole foot is comfortable and protective. The shoe colors work well together, giving them a unique look. Keeping the red and yellow colors in the sole clean does wonders in maintaining a "new" looking shoe. I use a toothbrush with a little soap. Yes, I would recommend them to a friend.

    I usually wear a size 9 shoe, but knowing the history of this brand, you may want to order a half size up and even a full size if you have a wider foot. Very comfortable boot right out of the box. I am used to Asolo boots everyday, and these Garmont's are light and extremely durable. Five stars!

    Purchased these shoes for a strenuous scramble in Great Falls, VA. The shoes are very sturdy and have a rigid, solid sole that is good for downclimbs. The black bordering of the shoes (where Garmont is written in white) is a very tough, scratch resistant surface. I thought I had scuffed the shoes on numerous occasions during my scramble and was pleasantly surprised that the shoes retained their appearance. I think they will make the perfect shoe for approach climbs.

    I do a lot of hiking in mountainous and rugged terrain, often with heavy backpacks. Without a doubt, this shoe has never given me any grief. Much of the time, I don't even notice my feet after miles of travel. They are light, comfortable, warm and waterproof where it counts. I've been doing serious mountaineering for 25 years.
