This boot retails for $999.99 US dollars.

2. Who are these boots for? These boots are for high altitude and cold weather mountaineering and mountaineers.

3. Pros: The Millet Everest Summit GTX boots are very comfortable and feature a great deal of adjustabiltiy. The liner and exterior boot feature a lacing and velcro strapping combination that make adjusting the boot easy for the desired comfort.
