      WELCOME TO THE CASCADECLIMBERS.COM FORUMS   02/03/18

      We have upgraded to new forum software as of late last year, and it makes everything here so much better!  It is now much easier to do pretty much anything, including write Trip Reports, sell gear, schedule climbing related events, and more. There is a new reputation system that allows for positive contributors to be recognized,  it is possible to tag content with identifiers, drag and drop in images, and it is much easier to embed multimedia content from Youtube, Vimeo, and more.  In all, the site is much more user friendly, bug free, and feature rich!   Whether you're a new user or a grizzled cascadeclimbers.com veteran, we think you'll love the new forums. Enjoy!

boot break-in

Recommended Posts

I finally got a new pair of mountaineering boots (Vasque Super Alpinista). Is there any kind of break-in I need to do to these boots?

That depends. Do you usually get blisters from new boots or do you have feet of steel?

Take them for a moderate hike. If they give you blisters try wearing them around the house and work to break them in. If they don't give you a problem, take a bigger or steeper hike. I find that the steeper the trail the more that the boots will irritate my feet.
