Kilimanjaro GTX Boot

Ecco Kilimanjaro Boot

Everybody always asks me what kind of boots you should have on Kilimanjaro. Really – it’s a matter of preference as long as they are waterproof. I have seen people in cross trainers, tennis shoes – and even Tevas. It also really depends where on the mountain you are, the time of year, and if you are comfortable with walking in boots for a week solid.

While I can’t vouch for these boots that are named Kilimanjaro GTX, they do look like a boot that would last a lifetime and be suitable for climbing Kilimanjaro. Although $200 is average, a bit expensive, you generally know in this price range that you are going to get something durable that is going to last for a long time. Remember, when you buy a boot, it takes a long time to break in, at least with leather ones. Don’t buy a boot two months before your climb. Buy one eight to six months in advance and try to use on regular basis, so your foot doesn’t get hacked on the mountain.
