/ High altitude boot small size
I'm after a small size expedition / high altitude boot, 37. - 37.5, equal to UK 4.5, unfortunatley it seems like there is not much in that size....
Anyone has an idea where to get them or has a pair to sell ?
Good Luck, the Smallest the Scarpa 8000 comes in is a 38 as for the La Sportiva Olympus Mons that goes down to a 39.
is 37.5 what you would normally wear in a standard single skin (Leather) mtn boot??
most stop at 39, tho some 6000m boots and spantiks go to 38.
probably just have to lump it, tho you may be able to get a custom inner that fleshes out the difference.
If you are normally a 37.5 in Leathers than you are most likely going to be a 38 or 38.5 in phantom 8000 or Olympus Mons. Double boots come up differently than singles in sizing.
I would recommend to go and get your foot measured (while standing) and as a starting point go up 2 euro sizes. I know people that have gone up 1 size bigger than the foot measures BUT most people I know have gone up 2 sizes. as I said it is a starting point not a rule.
If the Spantik dose come in a 38 you could always buy the liner for a Spantik and put it in the Olympus Mons to help the fit. After all they are the same liner.
