The MILLET RADIKAL PRO ($399.90, is the newest member of the successful Radikal shoe/boot line (other models include the Radikal Rock, Lite, Speed, and the classic Radikal). This year-round mountaineering boot notches up the tech, using a Phylon honeycomb structure in the upper and Millet’s trademark AIR SKIN 3D lining to create internal air circulation and reduce weight (each high-cut, rigid, waterproof boot weighs only 2lbs). The Pros are isothermal from -13 to 4 F, meaning they’re seriously warm, and feature the twist-to-tighten BOA® closure system, letting you dial the fit quickly; you also get a stretch mini-gaiter that keeps heat in and snow out. The versatile Pros let you slog in comfort, and then, when it’s time to get technical, step into your crampons and climb with serious control.
