        Dan Andrews always wears them must be good ?

        •  

          Stairman Dan could probably use a pair of these to help him traverse his way up to his verandah.

    This makes me sad.

    Wonder how many years it'll be till anyone can safely travel to areas requiring proper mountaineering boots (NZ has awesome mountains but not a real need for rigid midsole boot).

      Still useful for blue lake in kosi (although major overkill). Wear them in and use them down the track overseas.

      Have you summited Mt Cook?

    •  

      Mt cook is technically more difficult than Everest.

      Do some practice there.

      •  

        It’s cheaper though 😉

      • +6 votes

        I'm sorry Mt Cook has technical elements, but it is nowhere near as difficult as Everest mostly due to elevation.

    •  

      I feel ya. Was supposed to climb Mt Lenin last year but that got cancelled.

      All our mountaineering gear sits unused in the garage.

    Do they come in toddler sizes?

    Pity there is no interatiional travel .. these boots are a waste of money at the moment.

    But gotta love the brand … my brand of choice for my next everest summit.

      brand of choice for summiting Mt Druitt

      • +5 votes

        I had to google … "Mount Druitt is at an elevation/altitude/height above sea level of 51.1 m above sea level."

        • +18 votes

          Mt in name only. It's actually a hole. Boots would be handy to scale down its sides ;).

          Don’t forget the active wear!

        at least they'll stay on your feet, try that with a pair of Nike Tns / Max Tailwinds in that area and see how you go

        I did my last everest naked, carrying weights and with no equipment. I'm doing Olympus Mons as soon as we can travel again.

          I was carrying my three kids and mother in law, who initially only wanted to tag along. We slept in a shoebox. Every morning an unknown to me sherpa would slice us with a butter knife.

      Say Hi to "Green Boots" for me!

      If you are planning an everest summit, then you pre-plan and buy…….certainly wouldn't be a waste of money

    Something not made in china finally

    •  

      Where does it say that? I can't find where it's made.

      •  

        The high end La Sportiva boots will be made in Italy.

        But about 40% of their stuff is made in China and Vietnam.

    •  

      I challenge you to find a product in this category that's made in china

      •  

        Lol why are you challenging me? I'm simply asking where it's made. I wouldn't care if it was made in Mars.

        •  

          comment was for DEvok

      • +2 votes

        And for 1000 bucks a piece I believe it's made in Italy lol. They probably got like 30 different people hand stitching every piece.

          i just imagine 30 people all sitting round with the "Italian hands" that was recently added to the emoji alphabet, holding needles and thread

    Are these as good as the aldi ones?

      La Sportiva …. say no more … one of the few brands that you would use for a serious summit attempt … (not this model for a +6000m summit though) …

    Have a few pairs of these and they’re better than Jordans or yeezys. My mates compliment me every single time.

      “It is not the most durable boot, so we recommend keeping it for snowy adventures and avoiding rough, rugged trails and too much rocky terrain.”

      •  

        Also they weren't waterproof also!

      •  

        wtf, 1000 bucks and its not even durable

  •  

    Many thanks OP. I have been search everywhere for a pair of high performance mountaineering boots!!!

    Now to find a mountain (or a hill) that I can actually climb …..

      Now to find a mountain (or a hill)

      You can start at rooty hill then make your up to mount druitt.

      The way there might get dangerous not from the terrain but from the likelihood you might get shanked on the way there.

    I suggest pairing it with this deal:

    https://www.ozbargain.com.au/node/616797

    the $2000 softshell jacket then is only $1200, and the pants only $600. Perfect for the lift pass prices at Thredbo/Perisher etc this year, it'll only be about $2300 to get a set that will be the envy of every other Porsche 4WD owner at the chalet until the Lamborghini Urus owners turn up with whatever they've got direct from Milan this year

    Can I use these for basketball? Look like fantastic ankle support. Won’t be my ankles broken when I hit with the, cross.

    •  

      Gonna press x for doubt

    •  

      Do you know how these boots work?

      They are dual boots .. you put on a boot, then put the boot inside another boot … then you go and climb a 5500 to 6000m summit … I see that as being too heavy for basketball.

      •  

        Except there will always be that one guy that would go. Challenge accepted. Just saying.
