      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!

Vasque ice 9000--wide feet?

Recommended Posts

Hey all,

I'm looking to get a pair of warm boots (up to 6000m) that will fit my fat hobbit feet. More importantly, though, i'd like a pair that climbs well technically. Has anybody with wide feet tried the ice 9000s and mind commenting on their fit? Right now I have a pair of sportiva's trango extreme evos as my low altitude/warmer weather technical boots, but I still freeze and squeeze my feet because my feet are wide (at the ball section of my feet, kind of a triangular shape almost) and I always have to wear thin socks. (I know la sportiva makes some of the narrowest shoes, but the price was right. Stupid decision since boots are one of the main things where you shouldn't skimp on money-wise). Anybody have any suggestions for a wide and warm boot?

Sounds like we have a similar foot type. I have been very happy with my 9000s. My only complaint is that they tend to be hard on laces, so be sure to carry a spare or some 2mm cord.

Marmot Mountain Works in Bellevue, WA carries some. VERY few sizes left as they are discontinued, but if you have huge or tiny feet you can get them on sale!
