/ Dynafit TLT5 Ski Touring Boots
I want to buy these boots as part of a package from Conrad Sports in Germany. Unfortunately, nowhere in UK stocks them but I need to try a pair on before ordering.
Long shot, but does anyone in the Bristol area have a pair in size 28.5 or 29.0 that I could try on?! I would certainly buy you a beer!
Don't think Mountain Spirit are stocking them this season. Other Dynafit boots, including the One, but not TLT5, though I expect they could order them for you.

I was told (about a month ago,) you can rent them there.
Thanks for all the replies guys. Will contact Mountain Spirit - will be up in Highlands in a few weeks. For those of you with 28.5 TLT5s (or 29.0), what size feet are you? I am a size 9.5 shoe and have size 44 Scarpa Grand Jorasses (slightly close fit) and size 44 La Sportiva Baturas mountaineering boots.
I've tried on the Scarpa Maestrale in Ellis Brigham and found 28.0 too small and 29.0 to be a comfortable, if slightly roomy, fit. Again 28.5 couldn't be tried on because half-sizes are not stocked!
I'd prefer the TLT5 if they fit because they're lighter.
I would check out the new range of dynafit ones if you can. think they are called dynafit one? they made them more of a normal last.

Size 28 and 28,5 have the same shell size. If there is sufficient volume in the 28 shell the boot-fitter will mould the liner to your foot.
Just in case you didn't know. (Thats why shops often only stock whole boot sizes)
In scarpa boots 28,5 and 29 have the same shell size.
In dynafit 28 and 28,5 have the same shell size.
