      WELCOME TO THE CASCADECLIMBERS.COM FORUMS   02/03/18

      We have upgraded to new forum software as of late last year, and it makes everything here so much better!  It is now much easier to do pretty much anything, including write Trip Reports, sell gear, schedule climbing related events, and more. There is a new reputation system that allows for positive contributors to be recognized,  it is possible to tag content with identifiers, drag and drop in images, and it is much easier to embed multimedia content from Youtube, Vimeo, and more.  In all, the site is much more user friendly, bug free, and feature rich!   Whether you're a new user or a grizzled cascadeclimbers.com veteran, we think you'll love the new forums. Enjoy!

for sale FS: Italian Made Fabiano Midweight Hiking Boots - Men's 9 Narrow, Women's 10/10.5

Recommended Posts

Fabiano has long been associated with Scarpa. According to commentary on Trailspace in March 2007:

"Fabiano started as an outgrowth of a shoe repair shop in Boston.  The founder was an Italian immigrant bootmaker. He designed a series of boots, mostly leather, that were fabricated to his specifications in Italy, by Scarpa."
Features:

A vintage pair of hiking boots with light use.

– Midweight boot with just a little flex by hand at the ball of the foot.

- 1 piece all leather suede upper with a glove leather lining. The uppers are without scratches, digs or wear and look in “mint” condition. They haven’t even been “Snow Sealed”.

– Littleway sole attachment with the heels glued and screwed from Scarpa.

- At the toe, the sole was slightly separated but felt solid. I couldn't pry it open further just with my hands. To be on the safe side and certain of longevity, taking direction from Steve Komito, local Estes Park, CO boot repairman and climbing shoe re-soler,  the tips of the soles have been glued and screwed. In the photo's, you will see that I decided not to wipe off the adhesive that was squeezed out as the screws were tightened. I feel that this further reinforces the repair. Adhesive was also applied to the screws to prevent loosening.

– Alps Fabiano Extra lug soles with possibly 75% remaining life. Boots may be resoled.

– The boots stitching and the lacing hooks are in excellent shape.

- The leather lined interior is not dried up and cracking.

- Weight is 3lbs 5oz a pair.

Asking $65.00 shipped. Paypal or Venmo means of payment.
