La Sportiva G2 Evo vs. Scarpa Phantom 6000

by AdamJV » Sun Jul 11, 2021 7:14 am

I'm looking at a choice between these boots initially for Aconcagua.
If anyone has hands-on (feet-in) experience with both boots I'd love to hear your views on how they compare.

Also, can anyone comment on sizing: for a regular street shoe I wear a 43/UK9, what size should I be going for in each of these boots?
That might sound like a stupid question (I should just go and try them on) but I live nowhere near a shop that sells these things so will be buying online.

Thanks for any help.

In case this helps anyone else...

I take a 43 in street shoes and have average width feet.
I ordered the G2 Evo in a 44 and found them too small (too tight around the toes - zero wiggle room).
Sent them back and got a 45. Perfect width. Maybe slightly too long but the boa system holds my foot well in place.
Did not try the Scarpa.
