Trekking boots you need for your Mount Elbrus trip

Here are the trekking boots we recommend you consider for your Mount Elbrus trip with us. Obviously you will need quality Mountaineering Boots for your final ascent, but we spend 6 days trekking and acclimatizing around the North and Eastern sides of Mount Elbrus before we climb higher on the mountain. Check out our unique Itinerary.  I am going to present 6 different trekking boots you should consider for your Elbrus Trip. I have climbed Everest to the top and led 10+ trips to climb Mount Elbrus, Europe’s Highest peak.

La Sportiva have the very best in Trekking footwear

1). My favorite trekking boots at the moment are the La Sportiva Trango GTX. I like a more rigid sole under foot and these boots do a great job. They are warm, lightweight, great ankle support and water proof. I use these boots trekking around Mount ElbrusKilimanjaro, Everest Base Camp Treks and Inca Trail treks just to name a few. They  are still in great condition.  I also use them training and on some other treks in Nepal and South America.

Salomon are a favored boot of many

2). I really like the Salomon Quest 4 D GTX Trekking boots. More and more people are using these trekking boots on all of our trekking adventures and especially on Kilimanjaro, Elbrus and cold weather trips and around the world. They are comfortable, sturdy, waterproof and a very resilient trekking boot with excellent ankle support. Probably the best trekking boot available.

3). You should consider the Scarpa Kenesis pro GTX trekking boots for a few reasons They are a little heavier than other trekking boots and require a little more maintenance than other boots, but they offer excellent foot support, ankle support and very sturdy under foot.  Scarpa are always reinventing trekking boots and I am sure I will use these boots again in the future. They work great and last a long time.

4). I have used a range of Mammut trekking boots over the years. I really like the Mammut Trovat guide High trekking boots. They are really durable, reliable and will last a long time. All these boots will last a long time if you look after them well.

5). In my view the Lowa Renegrade is a good option for trekking around Mount Elbrus, Everest Base Camp in the warmer months and Inca trail treks. They are not that durable, they can tear at the seams as there is a lot of stitching and they use lightweight material.  They may not keep your feet warm on a Kilimanjaro trip. They need to be cared for if they are going to last. These might not be the right boots for you. They do have a good price point.  Try them they might suit you.

6). You could also consider using the Meindl Vaccum trekking boots are a really good option for walking and trekking in the Elbrus region.  I have seen a lot of people using these boots on all of our trekking trip, warm, durable and extremely comfortable. They are a little heavier than the La Sportiva and Salomon trekking boots.
