 Trango Extreme EVO Lt GTX.. reduced price

La Sportiva Trango Extreme EVO (the silver and black color). Size 44.5 (11 USA). Like New In Box (LNIB) and purchased last winter. These are very warm and light weight, but I have a very difficult fit. Thought these would work, but wrong again. Unfortunately, the local store (Denver) where I purchased these boots doesn‘t have a good exchange policy. I wore these only 4 times on and tried every combination possible of socks, lace, and footbed; must continue my search. Asking $250 obo; these are $400 new. Absolutely LNIB !

thx

Dang, too bad you are an 11. I would certainly try them on if they were a 12 (46). Seems like a good deal. I recently tried on the Mont Blanc and they seemed a bit much...and the Red Trangos and they seemed not warm enough. These would be the logical mid point between the two I am guessing. 2 questions if you don't mind...what was the coldest temp you used them in where they were warm while inactive? And what is the general shape of your foot...as to why they don't fit? Mine is narrow heel, wide up front (D), a bit of a high arch, big toe longest. Thanks...and good luck selling the boots.

Fit Question     2012-12-15 10:27:26
Powhound,
Thanks for the interest and to answer your questions: 1) Temperature comfort while inactive? The coldest conditions were teens with subzero windchill. My feet did feel chilled, but not uncomfortable; however that trip was short too (Sniktau) so a longer day may yield less favorable result. 2) I have a difficult fit. Basically a very narrow, low volume, nearly flat foot; with Toe box shaped like gumby's head. Climbing shoes are generally my perfect fit. I have been on a quest to find the perfect boot…. but its seems more like a quest to invest as its been frustrating. The toe box of these boots is narrow and why I was originally drawn to them; however, the heel area is a bit wide for me so I experience to much heel lift. This, however, could be more exaggerated by the boot's stiffness. They are very light weight. I'm currently experimenting with Salewa's Alpine trainer and Repace. These boots have lacing potential that can accommodate a wide-range of foot shape. So far, I'm very happy with the trainer and have yet to really test the Repace. If you're interested, I can come down in price more. Their condition is truly LNIB. I simply don't need them taking space. Thx !
