La Sportiva Ganda Guide 43, Dropped to $150

Hi All,
Got a brand new pair of La Sportiva Ganda Guide's for sale. Ordered what should have been my size @ 43, but they're quite a snug fit even with the inner soles removed.

Have worn them down to the coffee shop and back, that was all I needed to know that they were too small - toes against the end when walking uphill is not a great thing!

A great hybrid approach/hike boot, am now on the hunt for a 44!

NOW $150!!! as I'm looking to get rid of them quickly.

Feel free to ask any questions you may have.

I'm generally a 42 or 43 depending on the brand. So I guess if you're a 41 or 42 in most things you'll be set!

Boots are still here, waiting for a suitable owner! Excellent boot, just wish it fit!

Can be used equally for approach and guiding!

The Ganda Guide is the boot version, whereas the shoe is the Ganda.

Other than the obvious difference of being a boot, the other differences are the fit (slightly broader than the shoe) and the sole unit (more of a hiking sole, with a toe/forefoot area for climbing, rather than the shoe which has a full Dot Sole).

The Guide isn't as suited to technical climbing as the Ganda, but definitely more suited to actual approaching!

Would just like to confirm fit . . .

Heya Macca,
I'm in Sydney (North Sydney-ish area). Depending on the weather, may be heading up to the Bluies this weekend (got a MTB race on Sunday morning down the Oaks trail).

You're of course welcome to try them on for fit!
