There is a significant difference between the Yeti and the Everest. The Everest is a Polymer molded shoe with a riveted crampon/boa binding. The Yeti is an aluminum shoe with a FREEFLEX pivot rotating toe cord which is a lot more durable in hard use like rock and spruce traps. A rivet in to polymer deck would not be as durable in rough conditions in deeper snow conditions over rocky terrain.
