Part of Asolo's Alpine mountaineering footwear line, the Cholatse TH boots are engineered for high performance durability and stability, to help you make those impossible challenges possible. Designed for traditional ice climbing, as well as mixed climbing and dry tooling applications.

Thinsulate 150 g lining for warmth and breathability without extra weight—with appropriate socks, will keep most climbers' feet warm (as long as not standing around belays in subzero temps for hours on end)
Built-in ankle gaiters help maintain warmth and keep snow out
Bonded carbon and kevlar Asoframe technology uses a single molded structure (the chassis combines midsole, heel counter, and toe box) for solid support, comfort, and weight savings
"Summit" anatomic footbed reduces foot fatigue and helps maintain proper alignment in extreme conditions
Vibram® Lavaredo dual-density rubber midsole with PU (polyurethane) automatic crampon attachments
Vibram Bernina rubber lugged outsole provides excellent traction

Good boot, strange sizing
I have had several pair of Asolo boots and found that they all fit very different, despite being the same size numerically. I almost always wear EU 45, US 11-11.5, but these left at least a quarter inch at the heel if I put my foot all the way forward. They seemed okay when I bought them, but after I used them for a few days I really noticed the slippage. This was problematic for the calves when ice climbing and I ultimately sold the boots to a friend with bigger feet.

I like the built in gaiter; it kept the snow out for sure. They aren't waterproof but its usually not a problem when its frozen out. They are lightweight but keep my feet warm in temperatures down in the single digits.
