    I don't know
    But I am getting the M-inlaw to source used boots (look at my Trade Me)
    There is far more variety of model boots (Scarpa-Meindl-Lowa etc) in Europe than we get here
    These are not new - so they may not make anymore
    They were/are very popular in wetland Europe Boar/Elk hunting (Siberia etc

    PS
    The photos are the actual boots FS

    Can you guys clarify please - is a size 47 outside the norm ??
    Wife reckons there be very few who would have such huge hoof ??

    Don't want to get them in if only 1 in a 100 qualify for size.
    Looking on Google size charts looks to be a size 12 ??

    Probably need the width sizing as well. I bought, without trying on, a very nice pair of Meindl boots, in size 11, which is my nominal size but they were too narrow. I needed size 11 in the wide fitting, not standard fitting. I think NZ population have wider feet generally.

    That is why now I try and buy used (but near new)
    Then if they don't suit or fit perfect - you can generally on-sell and get money back or at the very least not loose to much
    Did buy new last year and tried on in shop - still cocked it up as they ended up being to big on the hills with heel movement.
    Lost a bundle on them
