“Anyone know where these great French boots can be bought. Hard to break in but they are the toughest boot I have ever worn .”
“Found this in the Outside magazine archives, from 2002. I'm guessing not much has changed since then.”
“I found a post where someone was trying to find these boots and was told to contact this company by phone. http://www.cordonnerie-deuso.com/
Supposedly they claim to carry the boots but I cant read french so I cant find any info on their site.
The only other suggestion I have is to try Ebay. I'll keep looking around and if I find anyting else I will update it here.”
“My French skills are limited, but that place seems to specialize in repairs.
If we're lucky, gremlin will see this thread and enlighten us all. Hell I bet he knows about these boots anyway.”
“I clicke on the page, but couldn'tget in. I'll google Galibier and see if they haveadistributor's lis, ororder a catalogue.”
“I didn't find much. Google lists a bunch of shops and resortss in France that sell orrent their gear and then a listof resorts and outfitters at the mountain of the same name.”
“I tried www.galibier.fr and www.chaussuresgalibier.fr, but got nothing.
BTW,if anyone finds a site in french on this or any other topic I'll be happy to translate for TT.”
Oh, yeah ...
“What does "cordonnerie" mean?”
“Shoe manufacture - literally 'cordwaning'.”
“What does Pied de chameau mean again?
“Mont de Vénus?”
“The site above seems to be more of an advertisement for the shop. I can't seem to find a link to an online catalog or any sort of e-commerce at all. They do have a contact email address though.”
“Thanks everyone . Far more leads than I found.”
“I'll e-mail them to-morrow.”
“Another adress for Galibier boots and Zamberlan:
“I have Zamberlans and love them.”
I also have Zamberlans
“and also love them”
