North Face Verto S4K
The North Face was tired of seeing their elite athletes in other makers' boots, so they decided to make a boot of their own. The result of that effort is the Verto S4K GTX. The Verto is a technical/mountaineering boot very much in the class of La Sportiva's popular Trango S Evo. In-hand the Verto S4K feels quite a bit beefier than the Trango, but it turns out they're almost identical in weight: 3 pounds, 6.6 ounces per pair .
