/ B3 boots for small feet...
Has anybody else had this problem, and know the cheapest/most faff free way of going about getting small B3s.
very few will do 6/61/2 mens, same as size 13+ mens, rule of averages, not enough of you out there to warrant stocking,
maybe a few specialist stores will stock, try peglers, outside, needlesports, joe browns, climbers shop etc...
I'm a similar size and had the same problem... Most shops who stock boots of a brand will order in if you ask them, however you obviously don't get to try them first and you will usually have to pay postage unless they are ordering stock anyway. I used Mantas before and just took the plunge and ordered some Phantom Guides in the same size - the fit was fine for me. If you're anywhere near the Ice Factor we have Scarpa Mont Blancs as our ice wall stock, so could let you try a 5.5 or 6.5 no probs if that helps any - we don't have the in between sizes tho...
I also found La Sportiva boots in Nevisport in Fort William when I was trying to find B3s - no idea where you are tho so don't know if that helps at all!
Here is a link to the Scarpa Phantom Guides on the website:
At the moment it is not every supplier that they are doing an extended range with, but they have an extended range with Scarpa.
