I bought these FC ECO 3.0 GTX boots before I went on my backpacking excursion into the Wilderness park for 4 days. I would recommend buying these boots. I backpacked up 5000 feet of elevation change this past weekend and didn't have any problems with the terrain. Went through muddy, snowy and even rocky trails with ease. These boots gave plenty support for my small ankles. I am excited to go on more hiking and backpacking trips knowing I have these great boots on my feet.

Great Job making these boots La Sportiva !

Just bought these. Went out for a short, but steep hike and love the fit of these boots. I have a narrow heel and always seem to have trouble finding a boot that won't give me blisters. I have tried just about every brand out there over the years, and i think I have finally found the one for me. Can't speak to durability yet, but they are very comfortable right out of the box (I didn't break them in at all). Good grip on a fairly steep downhill as well. If you have a narrow heel like I do, and have had problems with blisters, this may be the boot you have been looking for too. Kudos to La Sportiva for the Eco-friendly features. And I hope you will keep making this boot for a long time.

Overall these are very quality boots. I have worn them for one fall and winter. Comfortable and have a nice hold on foot. They are lightweight and seem fairly durable. It is really nice to have the split in the leather at the toes as it makes walking more comfortable and it may help with the durability there.

I wish there was more room in the toe area for my toes to spread out.
