These boots are in great condition, but I need to sell them as soon as possible. I have worn them a handful of times on single pitch ice and twice on Mount Washington in New Hampshire. It was January on the Mountain and my feet were toasty warm. There are no cracks, damages, etc. I wear a size 44.5 and I thought I could make these work by wearing two pairs of socks, but I still get heel slip. They retailed for $550, but have now been replaced by the Baruntse, which retails at $625. This is a chance to get a really nice double boot, for almost half the price of a new Lasportiva double mountaineering boot. I will be happy to answer any questions about sizing, fit, performace, etc or send you more pictures if you want them. If you are a 45.5 and normally wear LaSportiva boots they should fit like a glove, I think if you are a 45 you could make them work as well. I am asking for $25 dollars in shipping cost and $300 for the boots. mrdotbriandotturk@gmaildotcom if you have questions or want to make an offer. Change the dot with a . for the email. I could not post pictures because it said the file was too big. If you are interested and want pictures, shoot me an email and I will send them to you.
