Crampons Compatible with Size 47 Boots

I have a pair of LA Sportiva Trango Tech GTX Mountaineering Boots Men's Size 13 (Euro:47). I'm looking to buy a pair of crampons to go with them but the ones listed on REI's site only go up to Men's size 12 (46) Is there anyway to special order these or should I look elsewhere?

Hey @PMikuljan just fyi but I saw this on REI, and it's actually pretty interesting

btw, I read on the black diamond site that you can get a longer center bar for their crampons (from black diamond), not sure if REI sells them.

Hi @PMikuljan - most brands have "extender bars" for crampons that will give you the extra length you need. For instance, we sell these Black Diamond Long Flex Bars that are designed to go with Black Diamond crampons. I don't know what brand of crampon you are looking at, but just make sure that you stick with the same brand for extender bars since each is designed slightly differently.

My husband also had to get extenders for his crampons (EU size 48), and they work perfectly!

Hope this helps! Happy winter adventuring 🙂
