Scarpa Men's Baltoro Gore-Tex
Light strong boot for 2/3season hill walking
I've purchased Scapa boots for the past 25 years and this my first 3 season pair which complement my 4 season Manta Pro's. I particularly like the Vibram which is similar to the Manta which give excellent grip, especially on wet rock. The ankle support feels good and the boot is certainly waterproof, handling wet boggy ground with ease. Two great pairs from Scapa.

Great product - even better service
Without the patient and knowledgable help of the sales assistant, I would not have able to find the right boots to help in my getting back walking after ankle fusion operation. He spared no effort to get a boot that would fit, allow me to get my swollen foot easily into the boot and ensured that I knew how to lace them properly. A very happy shopping experience. I have a comfortable and secure feeling in these boots and on top of that they look good.

Nice boots, seem to perform well
Odd sizes which didn't help get a decent fit to start with. Also ended up with a 9.5 when I'm usually a 10.5.

Very comfortable walking boots
I was looking for replacement walking boots. My wife bought a pair of ladies Scarpa walking shoes, she has found them to be excellent, comfortable from the word go!
This reason is why I went for the mens Scarpa walking boots.
I am very happy with my purchase, and can happily recommend them!

A comfortable, robust boot for the mountains, well made and good quality from Scarpa
I bought this boot to replace my worn out El Caps, and was n't sure if I'd ever find a true replacement. Having had them for a few months I can say they are a step up, being comfortable, lighter, and with a slightly harder rubber, and better grip on the sole. Though slightly different purposes in role, I have found the Baltoro a nice boot to wear, and expect them to last a good few years. No major issues, perhaps the laces should be a little thicker.

Was looking for a new pair of walking boots that would suit most weathers and terrain. Going off reviews online this boot seemed very suited to me. Very comfortable and supportive. Smallish fittings I'm usually a 10 but needed a 10 1/2. Haven't had them out in bad weather yet so cant comment on waterproofing

Good quality lightweight boot
Good lightweight boot. Good build quality.
Better than average comfort, in particular excellent ankle support.
Memory foam ankle support feels a bit funny initially but is excellent once it warms up - 10/15 minutes into the walk.
A warm boot, but not too warm for Summer walking.
