Topic - FS: La Sportiva Trango S Evo GTX - 99 (rrp 255!)

Jonny Allen - on 28 Feb 2014 - user since 01/Jan/14

Price: 99

As titled: A pair of La Sportiva Trango S Evo GTX boots. In almost unused condition.

Probably the best general mountaineering boot made to date in the ultra lightweight B2 idiom. The perfect summer Alpine, and U.K. QMD boot, winter or summer.
i.e. One that's way more comfortable and suitable for long QMDs than any B3, but wont compromise on leaving you incapable of strapping on up to a semi-rigid crampon should the opportunity arise either.
In fact, out of necessity, and during their first use, I actually proved just that. I stuck an Airtech crampon (also the best all-round crampon ever!?) on them and was actually able to climb a gnarly and sustained grade 5/6 mixed corner-crack route in them, with surprisingly little bother!

So why am I selling them if I think theyre so great?:

Well, I should have quickly sold them on a long time ago, as soon as it was revealed (only by the downhill scramble on the walk-out from that very route mentioned above) that Id managed to buy them half a size too short. Ouch!
But because Id loved them so much up until then (and every time i try them on in the house since!) I think I just went into some kind of cognitive dissonance related denial! - Both about the size problem/error, and that I almost certainly wont find some use for them (recruiting a potential new climbing partner?) in the future.
So I've just been holding unto them like a demented Gollum ever since!
Plus I also just couldn't accept there would be just no solution to the fact that the nature of the used gear market meant Id be unlikely to get more than half of their retail value too. Ho hum }:-/

Ive only priced them even lower than that now for a quick sale, due to my own stupidity in waiting until I find myself in a situation were I could do with the money urgently.
Well, that plus I don't want to potentially waste more or money on a premier post!
