The Millet Everest Summit GTX boot of records and superlatives, with the quality “Hand made in Italy”, holds a major place in the history of mountaineering. Yannick Graziani wore it when climbing the southern Annapurna route and the previous versions of this boot have been a popular choice of clients and customers of Adventure Peaks for years. You may be making an attempt of Everest or tackling one of the other extreme expeditions we run including K2 or Vinson.
The boot features a semi-rigid shell within a reinforced Gore-Tex gaitor. The shell houses a removable inner slipper with a non-compressing fastening system to allow full blood circulation. The aluminised alveolite helps the Millet Everest Summit GTX to insulate down to -60°C. The latest version has Recco Safety Reflectors fitted. RECCO® reflectors do not prevent avalanches, nor do they guarantee location or survival of a buried or lost person. Reflectors are also not a substitute for an avalanche rescue beacon. However, when someone needs more help than their friends can provide, RECCO® reflectors do provide another chance.
The Millet Everest Summit GTX boot is our recommended boot for any high altitude expedition. It is a regular on 8000m peaks and is regularly used in our expeditions on Everest and the other seven summits. The new Gore-Tex Top Dry Fabric is has helped Millet to reduce the weight of this boot by 10%.
