Mountaineering shoes

biggest splurge shoes
  • Cost: $200

Shock proof... omni heat... water proof... friction proof... sprain proof...

These are some of the features of the first mountaineering shoes I bought in 2011. My Columbia high cut shoes lasted for two years climbing the highest mountains in the Philippines to the wildest terrain of Mt. Madjaas, Mt. Halcon and Mt. Guiting-Guiting, among others.

Last October my shoe grip finally gave up after climbing 15 exciting and difficult terrains around the Philippines. --Sherbien Dacalanio, Quezon City, Philippines
