I MIGHT JUST BUY IT NOW DEAL OF THE DAY: Asolo Expert GV Mountaineering
Lately I’ve been craving some time in the mountains, and along with that craving comes a desire for some serious mountaineering boots. I was idly perusing REI.com as I often do when I’m bored and looking for some no-nonsense boots, and just stumbled upon these - that is an INSANELY good price! ALMOST to the point where I would buy them just to buy them, but IN THIS ECONOMY WE CAN’T HAVE ANY FUN and also I don’t think I’m going to need a boot that can take semi-automatic crampons in the next six months. Six months in which I will be searching for mountaineering boots!
Additional ammunition: the boots look pretty stiff and heavy in the picture but as I was googling around I found this pair on sale for THIRTY SIX DOLLARS, SPEAKING OF DEALS, and you can really see the rock-climbing inspired design, and they actually look kind of lightweight and comfortable. Some day, something like this will be mine.
