      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!

Seeking US size 15/16 mountaineering boots

Recommended Posts

But not plastics! I really want to find a boot like La Sportiva Trangos. Something that will not suck for approach hikes and can do reasonably well for rock climbing. I've been researching online and calling around and I've had a terrible time finding anyone who manufactures anything above a US size 14. Thus far I've called La Sportiva, Lowa, Asolo, Scarpa, Kayland, and the American Alpine Institute to see if they have any advice. I've worn the Lowa Civetta Extremes several times in the past and, while functional, that's not really what I'm looking for.


So, what do fellow big foots do? Are we stuck w/ hard plastic double boots like the Civetta and La Sportiva's Baruntse? Is getting a custom made boot an option? Any help is much appreciated.
