Size 8 ? I have some to sell. If not, decathlon and try on loads to see what fits and what size you need, then have a swatch at eBay.

i had super old & super heavy plastic Scarpas, so anything will be an improvement on those,,

was looking at : "LA SPORTIVA NEPAL TOP EXTREME'S" - partly because of the price
but the name puts me off... 'Nepal extreme' sounds like a bit of a marketing ploy plus things with extreme in the title are usually trash. in my experience anyway...

again id just be in Scotland,
anyone had any experiences with them or other sugestions?

In this case it's not. Nepal Tops have been around for yonks and, while most people have moved onto lighter, nimbler recent versions, the old Tops were very solid and hardwearing (if my memory isn't failing me, never owned a pair).

Great price at Decthlon just now.

If you want something a bit lighter and more flexible, but less warm and supportive have a look to see if you can find La Sportiva Trango Evo Extreme GTX http://www.ukclimbing.com/gear/review.php?id=1782

That's what I'm currently using and they're pretty decent, but getting hard to find now.

And you can use Go Outdoors price match to beat the Decathlon price by 10%, making them 207.

If they are a reasonable fit (more important than anything else) you will not be disappointed, Had a pair for years and while they are distinctly less comfortable for walking in I can't fault their performance
