Garmont Prophet NTN
Where to Buy
Here's what other sites are saying:
In 2010 the Garmont Men's Prophet NTN Thermo Boot won so many awards that we've lost count. It's basically a free-heelers wet dream thanks to its sweet forward flex, alpine-like torsional rigidity and support, rounded toe for easy walking and scrambling, easy binding entry, and free-pivot touring mode. The Prophet also delivers the responsiveness that you desire when you arc down the mountain, and its Rabid Thermo liners custom mold to your feet.
Throw on the Prophet NTN boots from Garmont to charge through the deepest powder and over the tallest cliffs. The NTN system keeps building in popularity and durabilty, and these boots have a replaceable second heel underfoot interface that extends the lifespan of your boots.

Garmotn's new Prophet NTN uses the new Garmont Power Wrap shell design that follows the contours of the foot and ankle more precisely than traditional tongue designs for the most responsive, progressive flex.
Garmont Prophet NTN telemark boots are a free-heel skier's dream. They feature a smooth forward flex, alpinelike torsional rigidity and a round toe for easy walking. Power Wrap anatomic shells are constructed around the shape of the foot and have been prepunched to accommodate common irregularities of skiers' feet. 100% Pebax(R) plastic construction provides high stiffness and power without a lot of weight; Pebax plastic maintains a consistent flex in all temperatures. NTN boots do away with the duckbill traditionally found on telemark boots, making walking and scrambling easy; boots are compatible only with NTN bindings (sold separately). Lace-up custom-moldable liners feature 4 different foam thicknesses and densities throughout to provide the best possible comfort and support. Strobel-stitch design in the liners allows feet to sit flat for good anchoring within the liners; design also maximizes forefoot width. T-Bar Pebax(R) tongue reinforcement on the liners enhances shin protection and helps you power forward into turns; pull loops on the front and rear ease entry and exit. 3 Wide-Open buckles and catches on each boot close easily and securely; buckles swing completely open for unrestricted touring while still being held in place by the catches. Wide rip-and-stick power straps wrap securely around the outside of the cuffs, distributing pressure and bringing the cuffs as close as possible to your lower legs. Rear walk/ski mechanisms are simple and secure; flip the levers to the ski position for a locked-down forward lean position at 25deg. Replaceable, high-density nylon bellows protectors guard against sharp ski edges. Garmont Prophet NTN telemark boot soles feature replaceable NTN binding interfaces, something only offered by Garmont. See an REI ski shop professional to have the liners custom molded to your feet to maximize comfort and performance.
