Re: Thinking about new boots, 75mm vs NTN, from my perspective.

If you want to continue with 75mm, there are tons of bargain boots on ebay and likely craigslist depending on your location. I recommend buying a cheap 75mm boot now and using the savings to start a fund for NTN. Unless your fit issues are a big deal. If Scarpas are too narrow for you the older Garm...

Spring loaded, but it seems like there is two attachment points? Some kind of crossover between the Salomon pilot and NTN duckbutts!?! Wow, wow and WOW! So that ...
