I really want to find a boot like La Sportiva Trangos. Something that will not suck for approach hikes and can do reasonably well for rock climbing. I've been researching online and calling around and I've had a terrible time finding anyone who manufactures anything above a US size 14. Thus far I've called La Sportiva, Lowa, Asolo, Scarpa, Kayland, and the American Alpine Institute to see if they have any advice. I've worn the Lowa Civetta Extremes several times in the past and, while functional, that's not really what I'm looking for.
So, what do fellow big foots do? Are we stuck w/ hard plastic double boots like the Civetta and La Sportiva's Baruntse? Is getting a custom made boot an option? Any help is much appreciated.
