Looking to get some.

Can anybody point me in the general direction of a few good models?

Given that if you treat leather properly, it'll be waterproof, and given that most water that will get into any boots will get in over the top, and given that Goretex breaks down (leaving you with a leaky, stinky sweatbox) before the boots themselves fail, why bother following the masses in believing the Goretex myth?

The disussion on this thread may be helpful: http://www.ukclimbing.com/forums/t.php?t=546394. Meindl boots are pretty good and well worth the investment.

I've just used whatever I've been hillwalking in that year, never quite understood having scrambling specific boots.
Recently scarpa SL (old model) which have been fine uo to vdiff but keep the leather well looked after. I got some nice scrapes after taking a sporting line on tower ridge.
Favourite boots were made by Crispi but the seemed to have disappeared off of the radar in this country?
