Still need to take a pic of the pair that I have with smooth soles.


My soles are also worn flat!

I still have mine, they don't fit any more but used the heck out of them. I am thinking of putting them on eBay just for kicks to see what they bring.

I did lots of mountaineering in RR's. Sized right, smeared with SnoSeal, and used with gaitors, they were fine for navigating steep snow in places like the Bugaboos and Tetons, and I could climb almost as well in them as with any of the other smooth-soled more pre-sticky rubber board-lasted shoes of the day.

My impression is that La Sportiva might have even improved on the concept with their Ganda's, but sadly that shoe is now discontinued.
