Crampon compatibility with your winter boots is one of the most important factors in preparing yourself for winter mountaineering, be it hillwalking or full scale winter climbing. All four season boots should be suitable for crampon use. The grey area in crampon fitting is the flexibility of your boot sole and in some cases the width and size of the boots. The ideal answer to this problem is to take your boots to your nearest Nevisport store and get good advice.
If you are purchasing by mail order it would be a good idea to include details and brand of boots to be used with your crampons (in the special instructions box on our order form). Crampons come in a variety of styles and fixing systems and if you take our advice as recommended by most boot suppliers you can have peace of mind in your purchase.
