The mind-numbing has set in… OR day two consisted of me making the rounds and seeking out the goods. To be honest, nothing particularly groundbreaking in my opinion.

I’m really digging on these new sportivas—>>

 

According to the folks at Sportiva these high end kicks were designed by an Italian guida who designed these as a ‘Quiver of one shoe’ and are handmade. Rumor has it they will retail for over $200 us.  the suggestion is to remove the footbed for the approach, then slide em in for the climb for a more precise fit. I’ll check in again later. I spotted some new Mammut mountain boots with a similar vibram sole as the trango S. I’ll check em out.
