Named after a breath-taking beautiful pinnacle shaped mountain in Norway, Stetind is a modern and lightweight mountain boot designed for technical alpinism, winter climbing and ascents of alpine peaks. Stetind takes full advantage of the best modern materials to give you more comfort, less weight and better climbing performance than ever before.
A fully integrated outer gaiter keeps the elements out and is neatly and simply closed with a single premium quality water resistant zipper. Inside you’ll find an upper made from lightweight synthetic textiles and a closure combining the best of conventional laces with a Velcro ‘power-strap’ at the ankle to keep your heel locked down. Triple Thinsulate™ layers surround the whole foot (even underneath!) providing superb warmth with no cold spots and our unique Dry-Line® lining ensures absolute waterproofness and superior breathability.
Stetind is fully compatible with automatic crampons and uses dual density crampon lugs, hard at the rear for a secure fit and soft at the front for reducing vibration when frontpointing on bullet hard ice. The advanced carbon composite midsole is rigid, yet incredibly lightweight and ample underfoot cushioning is provided by dual density shock absorbing PU and EVA layers. Finally, our choice of a deeply lugged Vibram® Teton outsole will help keep you upright on the approach.

The reader can assume from the number of stars I awarded the boots—two—that I was not impressed. The reader would be correct in this assumption. To be fair, the Stetinds have some redeemable attributes and can serve the right situation well, such as high-altitude treks. But for technical alpine and ice climbing, I would not recommend these boots to anyone. This is unfortunate, because my first pair of rock climbing shoes back in 1992 were the Boreal Aces—so Boreal's products hold a fond place in my heart.
