      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!

Boots with wide toe boxes

Recommended Posts

I currently have a pair of silver trangos. I love the weight and how they climb, but they crunch my toes together. When I replace these next season, I will be looking for a boot that can climb very similar to my trangos and fits my feet which are not super wide but look like a upside down triangle (so my pinky toe is crushed). I am not sure if any of that made sense.

 

Anyway who makes lightweight high performance mountain boots for people with wide feet. I have heard scarpa boots have a little more room in them but I have yet to try a pair.

 

Thanks

Eric

You are correct, Scarpa boots generally tend to be a bit wider in the toe box. I have a pair of Scarpa Phantom guides that fit me like a glove and my forefoot is pretty wide. This is a different type of boot than the Trango but Scarpa makes a number of other "mountain boots" that may work for you depending on your specific needs.

Wearing a La Sportiva for me is like wearing a brand new rock shoe, only you have to walk in it for hours on end, and it never gets better.
