OK, I like the lower cost, lower-weight, warmth-orientation of the boots... but I want boots that are stiff enough to take strap-on crampons for ~45 degrees slopes. At least the equivalent of a half-shank (preferably 3/4 shank), whether it be provided by steel or stiff nylon. Does such a boot exist?
