Ladies boots 14 Jan 2012

The trusty Raichle/Mammut MT trail GTX boots have a full thickness split in them, am in urgent need of replacement.  The boots suited me quite well as they are quite rigid and could take a C1 crampon.  They lasted 2.5 years 60+ munros and many many miles but not sure if I just want to replace them with the same as I don't really want to be having to break in a new pair of boots every couple of years.  Also they have Nubuck uppers which isn't great for major bog factor hills. 

Any suggestions ladies?  There really doesn't seem a lot out there in the 4 season, B1/B2 category for ladies.  In fact the only ones I can really find are the Scarpa Mantas and I was hoping not to spend £240.  Or am I just being unrealistic?? 

Please help

We've gone for La Sportiva Evo S GTX, (they do a women's specific) they're very light and take a crampon well.  On they're currently £190.
