Looks like a pair of la sportive lhotse boots to me contractor. It's a warmer boot than the Karakoram- Should be great for winter use.

Haha-Yes, they could swim in those!

SEa, Air, Land...

The early SEAL's plucked from Navy UDT went to Ranger school. Now they have their own mountaineering school I believe.

They actually train at the Marine Corps. Mountain Warfare Training Center
at Pickel Meadows in the Sierra. My brother had done some training there during his time in the Corps. Semper Fi

There was a Boot, from 1978-79(?) that looked like "Herman Monster" boots. They Had A 3 inch high rubber rand, Vibram Sole, maybe a Vasque build for the Adirondack Climbing store,-The Mountaineer- in Keene Valley NY. I over paid Al Jolley For a pair. They were Ice Box's

Gnome, Jim Wagner designed them when he ran the Mountaineer.

They attempted to get away from the stitched Norwegian welt.

Good boat anchors!
