      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!

Lightweight Mountaineering Boots

Recommended Posts

I've got these enormous wide feet and I can't seem to find any crampon compatible mountaineering boots (except plastics, which fit great) big enough. Any recommendations? Does anyone know a manufacturer that makes an extra wide boot?

Has anyone taken a look at Salomon's new leather double boots? Who'd a thought they'd ever come back?

I'll tell ya what not to get if you have wide feet: La Sportiva Trango S. I have wide feet and it has taken me a while to break them in. They are really light though, probably one of the lightest full shank, crampon compatible boots out there. They are also NOT waterproof. Can't stretch the toe box because the rubber rand just holds the shape. My heavy Nepal Extremes are plenty wide, plenty waterproof, plenty comfortable, and plenty heavy. Good luck!!
