Blue mens Scarpa Manta M4 B2 boots. Bought ages ago and used for a short while until I realised they are just a little too small for me when wearing winter socks.
Generally good condition but with a bit of wear in the heel lining of the right boot. I just stuck a bit of zinc tape over it and this didn't cause any comfort issues and wasn't felt at all when wearing proper socks.
These aren't very warm boots in my experience so you need to account for thick socks if you plan on using them in proper winter conditions and should consider sizing up a bit. I do get cold extremities so it may not be such an issue.
They have both toe and heel lugs but I've only used them with C2 crampons with a toe basket.

Any questions or reasonable offers welcome.
Just an edit to say that these are the leather versions with the black leather ankle cuff. Bought around 2006 I think.

Priority to Jamie though of course
I've had a chat over email with Gethin, and come to the conclusion that these are likely too small for me; I tend to take either 42 or 43 in Scarpa and he reckons these are on the smaller end of the scale. So I'll step aside. If you find they're too big for you, though, then drop me a line!
Sold now thanks.
Hey so I bought these off Gethin in the end - arrived here in Ireland safely, thanks Gethin! Unfortunately they do seem to run a good bit small. I’ve always been a comfortable 42 in pretty much any boot but reckon these might be more suitable for someone 41 or even lower. So happy to sell them on if anybody fits that bill...
Ah, sorry to hear they don't fit. That's really annoying, I really didn't think they were comparably small and hope you don't feel I mislead you. I tried my best to give you an idea about the boots I now have and how they compare.
Hope you find someone who they fit.
No worries at all Gethin! It's always a bit of gamble buying before trying, no matter what descriptions you have prior...
Boots in great condition and a good deal anyway.
Still for sale in case anybody else out there interested!
