    My growing teenage son's feet have grown to the end of his Mondo 26.5 alpine boots . Just in time for his first alpine ski trip this year at the end of next week ! If anyone in Melbourne or at Dinner Plain or Hotham has a pair of Mondo 27.5 boots (42 to 42.5 European size, AUS mens 8-8.5) you want to offload PM me please. Not looking to spend a lot as he'll probably grow out of them by xmas.

    If you want my old boots for the season after I have a pair of old boots with very little time on them.
    Lange X09 I bought them tight and then my feet stretched. 29's Free to a good home if you collect from Geelong You can have the mouldable footbeds too, they should be good for one more heat up Isn't a Lange 29 everybody elses 28.5?

    Thanks Moondog but he's fitting a 27.5 this season. Who know for 2020 though, he could be a 28.5 then. For that, if we are coming be Geelong way later I'll PM you and see if the boots are still available :)

    That was what I thought would be OK.
    2020 not the rest of this season. Boots have no real value unless you have really [ I mean really really really] skinny feet. Less than a weeks skiing on the damn things after I bought them and they didn't fit anybody on the hill that season

    Thanks. We'll keep those boots in mind. We visit Ocean Grove occasionally to see a friend so a boot try on could be done then. Cheers!

    PM me for the phone and address when you are ready Goski, if headed to Ocean Grove you practically drive past our house in Norlane

    Hi Goski. I have upgraded my alpine ski boots this year. So I have the old boots which are Lange Crl 70 in size 43.5 just sitting in the cupboard. Will suit a narrow foot. If you think they might be worth a try, send me a pm. Any reasonable offer considered. Might do for a year or 2.

    Hi @chriscross Thank-you :) however my son is a euro 42 at present - just too long for most Mondo 26.5 boots. I think 43.5 would be too long for him this season. He's closing on my modest 42.5 boot size but I have only AT boots and Tele boots, neither of which will do for my son on his alpine skis.
