Will be spending most of next year in Italy and want to bring a bag with some mountaineering gear. But want to bring only one pair of boots. I have some mid-weight plastics and the bomber la sportiva leathers. what would be best to lug over for fun on mont blanc?

thanks

Bring leathers; you'll buy new boots in Italy anyway, as you'll see the prices.

are leathers a good idea for the conditions...in addition to the prices of plastics? are leathers ok just for the summer season?

Depends on wich leathers, which altitude you're going, wich routes, and on you too. Over 4000 m in winter you'll probably want a warm plastic boot.
