La Sportiva Mountaineering boots - EUR 43.5
8:08:13 PM
One pair La Sportiva K3 mountaineering boots - still available.

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 (front bail style - someone else pointed out) and a solid metal shank (steel from memory), thinsulate insulation layer.

In excellent condition. $99 ono.

Can try on in Kew.

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

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 :)
