Scarpa Phantom Guide

Redefining mountain performance, this boot is suitable for challenging the most technical routes in cold climates, whether ice cragging or in the high mountains. This low-profile boot provides the perfect balance between warmth, comfort and dexterity. Whittaker Mountaineering guide team member, JJ Justman wears these boots on Rainer, Mexico summits, Ecuador and Elbrus.

"The Scarpa Phantom Guide Boots have an easy lace-up system, and for such light boots they have kept me very warm on cold, late season days on Rainier. The built-in gator on the boot is very durable. I have worn one pair day-in and day-out on Rainier for the past two seasons, and they have held up incredibly." - JJ Justman

I use the Scarpa Phantom Guide on most of my trips, from Rainier and Aconcagua, to Elbrus. My pair have over 200 days on them and are still going strong.

Mountaineering Boot Fit

How a boot fits is without question the most important factor of boot selection. While trekking boots and hiking shoes should fit the same as your street shoes, general and high alpine mountaineering boots are fit a little differently. A good fit correctly addresses the three dimensions of your foot.

Boot Fit Tips

Always Size Up - one-half to one full size. More room = more circulation = warm feet

Prevent Toe Bang - Half of mountain climbing is walking downhill. Make sure your toes do not touch the front of the boot. Test for this by lacing your boot up tightly and tapping your toe behind you. If your toes feel crunched against the end of the boot, size up.

Comparative Fit - They shouldn't fit like ski boots. Mountaineering boots are made for walking, so you should have a looser, roomy fit. Tight boots are a recipe for discomfort, decreased circulation and potential frostbite.

First Impressions - Have your sock system, lace up the boots and walk, stand sit, tap your toes and scuffle around for 15 minutes?

Brands and Models - If a boot fits too tight overall, you're likely in the wrong size. If the boot is pinching in some areas but is loose in other, your in the wrong brand or model. Boot brands used different lasts, even between different models.
