You know the ones that were normally blue... what the nearest thing now? Trango tech?

Hey Jez,

Trango Tower is probably the direct replacement. I reviewed a pair, and found them slightly clumpier. 

Trango Cubes have a very similar fit, but are stiffer. Amazing for big boot rock climbing. A friend described them as Fiveten Whites for big boot rock climbing. I’ve had a couple of pairs.

Outside have a killer deal on them currently.

A slight curve ball suggestions which are great value are Kayland Cross Mountain. Very similar fit and last to the old Trango S. You can buy them from Crib Goch in the village. 

HTH

Perfect info, thanks Tom!

That Cube price is insane! I already have some Ice Cubes and love them. Tower is probably what I’m after, it’s for ML courses and scrambling stuff.

I have the Towers and they are very similar to the old Trangos but I find the sizing slightly longer. Def worth trying on rather than just getting your old size automatically

Hope you are all good and looking forward to being releaserd into the wild!

La Sportiva have the most rubbish naming systems going - see the start of: https://www.ukclimbing.com/gear/footwear/mountain_boots/la_sportiva_trango_tower_extreme_gtx-11846 So the Trango Tower GTX and the Trango Tower Extreme GTX are quite different boots! I used to have Trango S (first gen. from 2002 I think when they hadn't even put goretex in them yet), but they added Evo to various different models though because my old ice boots are La Sportiva Trango Extreme Evo GTX! I bought those in 2006. So do you think your old ones were just Trango Evos or Trango Extreme Evos - as they would be totally different! LOLs.

I have some Trango Evos and Trango Evo Extremes...! And some Ice Cubes!

They do seem to have a massive range with very confusing names....

This thread prompted me to try for an unwanted pair of the old S Evo if anyone has, or the Trango Tower. I think the extreme are the same but take a full crampon but I won’t bet on that haha!

Jez, this is the "best" info I could find on what all the similar names mean:

I went with the Cubes on the back of that (and the price at Outside....)

That's a handy video! I was trying to work out the difference between the Towers and the Cubes a while back but couldn't seem to find any info. I ended up just getting my old Trangos resoled so should hopefully get a bit more use out of them.
