Very comfortable light mountaineering or hiking boot from Scarpa. Really sticky Vibram sole, leather upper, flex gusseted tongue, stiff last, hard rubber toe rand, these inspire confidence on rugged terrain. Used twice: one trip to the Wind River Range and one to Colorado. Great shape, cosmetic scratches to outsole (pics included). GTX really works. Size is 44.5 (USA 11), but true fit would be 9.5 USA with thick socks. I’m a high volume 10 USA and these are just too narrow.
