JohnK,

You've attached a link to Bogong, therefore I'm really hoping you bought them there.

There seems to be a plague of climbing shoes/boots that are too small (posted on Chockstone) that are looking for new owners.

I'm betting people are buying on-line and getting it wrong, the only thing worse than this is trying them on at a shop (eg Bogong) then buying on-line.

I know it is tempting to save some $'s by doing this, but in the end it is false economy if they don't fit.

Support your local shops, otherwise they might not exist in the future (eg Snow Gum)

I agree in principle jdb, often when buying online you only end up saving a few bucks once postage and currency conversion are factored in. However, I reckon these boots are an exception as they normally retail for a few hundred dollars more here than overseas. Also not being a very popular item they are rarely on sale. Gearing up for mountaineering is expensive as hell and that few hundred dollars can pretty much equate to having a new ice axe as well!

More than 200 views - winter is coming - someone must be interested in these! Bump!

p.s. boots were tried on in the shop for nearly an hour - they just proved a bit too tight for long days that's all.
