The North Face Men's Verto S4K GTX

The North Face Men's Verto S4K GTX 4.5 5 2 2
Excellent 4 season scrambling boot The North face Verto s4k are designed specifically for peaks up to 4k meters. They have a semi rigid sole that comes under the B2 category, but are not as rigid as other similar boots such as the Scarpa manta or Mammut monolith. I do believe they have been designed this way specifically for additional speed and comfort. This has its benefits and drawbacks. The extra flex allows you to move much faster over scrambling terrain and non technical ascent with much more comfort as the toe box flexes slightly, it will still fit a C2 semi automatic crampon with no issues. The additional flex however makes the boot less useful when trying to balance on the toes on smaller ledges and is slightly less effective at step kicking, but not significant enough to be concerned. Because the boot is designed only to go up to 4k meters it is not as warm as some other boots, but The North Face have designed the S6K for this, which is stiffer and will take a fully automatic crampon. The Goretex material is excellent at keeping your feet dry so at least you will have dry feet, get some warm socks to compensate for the thinner linings. The heel cradle is a nice feature which stops the heel lift you may experience in other boots that give you horrendous blisters. The boots also have a vibram sole which gives plenty of grip where you need it. The actual boot quality is excellent, it is well manufactured, they look and feel tough, the lacing is well done and they look the part. I found the sizing was slightly big, I found the size chart on the north face website to be really useful when measuring up, I usually take a size 45, but ended up getting a 44.5. 24 February 2015
bagged a bargain as they had 40% off! Great quality B2 boot and at £135, good luck trying to find similar for that price. Really warm and comfortable and gtx liner works very well. Fantastic boots at an amazing price! 03 November 2014
