I don't know, but those shoes are sure sexy! Are those old Mega's or Kendos?

The original Mega. Very silly looking these days but bare in mind the what people wear wearing on their legs back then!

Yeah, check out the gear I was wearing in 1990:

I'll find some from the 80s later....
I recall I was climbing in Kamet shoes- the Monisrat and Joshua Tree... couldn't afford the Sportiva shoes back then!

The name was the Kamet Montserrat (like the climbing area in Spain), not the Monistrat.

Yes, it's Reckoning on the West Ridge. I really liked those shoes--I'd still be using them if possible. I'm pretty sure I never wore short shorts, and I definitely never wore lycra! (I preferred Levi's).
