Looking to replace my light ice and mixed boot. I currently have the scarpa rebel pro and sadly their life is coming to an end. The rebel was always a touch wide for my feet and that is why I'm considering the trango ice cube. I also know that the trango last fits me well. I was wondering if anyone with experience with the trango ice cube could tell me how they are?

I bought a pair just after the start of the season. Out of the box they impressed the hell out of me. Super light! First few times I climbed with them they were great. Very warm for the weight, stuff underfoot but great articulation, did I mention light?

After climbing in them more I was less impressed. An area just behind my big toes on top of my foot started bothering me that ended up creating a lump on both feet. Almost stopped using them, but they were the only boots I had avalible. I've loved my Napal's and my Trango Extreams, but the Ice Cubes are cut differently. After about 10-15 days I noticed the plastic lace hooks started to pull out of the boot. I limped them along to finish the year, but will have metal lace hooks installed before next season. 

Over all I wished I'd had gone with the Phantom Guides as I love my 6000's

I love them! although I got mine a tad to small because with thick socks they are to tight and I feel it cuts of circulation and my toes tingle and hurt...  With light socks they are great, but not as warm as my Phantom Guides.

Over the years I have had both the Nepal and the Trango for me I found the Nepal to be a better fit the trango just seams to be a tad narrow in the toe box and instep they are both quality boots so suggest you try both and see which one fits better

tried them on and was turned off by the lack of ankle support and the cheap plastic parts. Went with the G5's. They are sexy.

how does this size relative to other boots? I'm 43 in the silver Trangos

Guideline #1: Don't be a jerk.
