Just a thought, winter boots can give you sticker shock if you go with a good boot. Personally, boots is one area that I consider critical. Regardless of the type of boot you end up with IME in North Conway has a large selection of mountaineering boots downstairs on consignment. You just might score an expensive boot for a considerable savings and at the very least, you can see a variety of examples and even try a bunch on for fit reference. I was down there just a short time age and they had a few good Koflach plastics, while I don't care for plastics anymore, they are warm, you can sleep with the liners and your feet will never get wet in them. Not to mention, they take a crampon with ease.
Good to know. Not being able to go anywhere and try the boots on was what essentially derailed the search last year with my concern about narrowness. I don't mind buying new but it would definitely be nice to try several brands and get some expert guidance on the process. IME is the place on the right just after Joe Jones heading out of town right?
