Cinderella Shoe Thread

Post by JanoSA » Tue Jan 15, 2019 2:58 pm

Hi All

I have two different sized feet which sucks when buying climbing shoes. I can't be the only one.

Recently saw a similar thread over on MountainProject.com so I thought I'd try the same thing here.


Sadly we can't buy split sized shoes locally, but nothing stops us from improvising our own shoe swap. If you are keen on linking up with your "Sole Mate" so you can buy shoes together or have an extra shoe you won't or can't use, post your shoe sizes and brand preference or the shoe you want to donate/sell/trade and lets see if we can link people up and save ourselves unnecessary torture.

The reason I'm starting this is I've owned a pair of La Sportiva Miura in UK9/Eur43 for ages now, After stretching they fit my left foot very nicely, but were too big on the right. Got a good deal on a new/old Pair of UK8/Eur42 this week. Love the fit of the right foot but the left is unbearably tight. So I thought I'd find it a new home.

To get the ball rolling and the reason I'm starting this now:







PS.
Let's try to keep this going, so feel free to post your particulars like the following.

Left foot Street: UK 10.5.

Right foot Street: UK9


Shoes I'm interested in:

La Sportiva Otaki/Kataki Right foot UK8 / Euro 42


Shoes I have to offer:
La Sportiva Otaki - UK 9/Euro 43


Received a brand new pair of La Sportiva Otaki in UK9 this week (6/5/2019). Super chuffed with them, but as expected, the right foot is bigger than I would like them to be, so tragically hoping someone is lusting after the same shoe and has the reverse of my L UK9/ R UK8 feet and would like to swop shoes. If you are my Prince Awesome, give me a shout.


Will add pics of the Otaki

Previously had a surplus UK 8 Miura, gave it away already. Just leaving pictures for reference.

Bumping this as I'm sure someone out there could use a UK 8 Miura for something. No point in it rotting in my closet


Also, just ordered a new pair of UK 9 Otaki and I'm stubbornly clinging to the idea that I can't be the only mutant in SA :thumleft:
