La Sportiva Mountaineering boots - EUR 43.5

One pair La Sportiva mountaineering boots (not sure what they're actually called, it just says "Mountain" on it :)

Used for a few short walks before conceding 43.5 was just a little too small for me as my toes hit the ends going downhill.

Beautifully made, one-piece leather, with fixings for crampons (not sure which type as I never got around to using them) and a solid metal shank (steel from memory).

In excellent condition. $99 ono.

Can try on in Kew.

Interested,
Will need to check my sizing for that sort of boot
And what sort crampons will fit...

Cheers

They are La Sportiva K3, and were around in the late 90's.. Will suit front bail style crampons.

Slightly heavy for a leather boot, due to the full Thinsulate insulation layer. I found them to be warm to wear during single day winter alpine climbs in the Canadian rockies.

The leather did wet-out in damp conditions, so may benefit from some form of treatment.

Thanks ant! Appreciate the info.

Yeah I certainly noticed the heavy-duty weight :)
