Nice boot runs narrow. Has a precise fit and just enough flex. Not too heavy for a plastic. I have an older one before the Intuition liner. I bought an aftermarket Intutition Denali liner. Love it. I have a size 12b foot and am using a 13 boot with the Denali liner and custom footbeds that I switch between my ski boots and these.

I am on the lookout for closeout new ones as mine have taken a beating but are still living. I want to prepare for the future if Scarpa decides to discontinue. I hope not. These are my fav plastics.

These boots feel like a hybrid between a real stiff leather and a full bore plastic. I wear them for ice climbing, alpine, and winter BP. I have commonly done 10-20 miles a day in them peak bagging in the Northeast and they have worked admirably.

Obviously not as comfy as doing 20 in a soft leather or split leather but not freezing your feet off and have a warm dry liner in the morning outweight the discomfort.

If you have a narrowish foot I highly recommend them, fat feet people should buy with caution. Make sure you can return it.

Third pair of plastics for me. Much more nimble, plenty warm. Had read of durability problems but have two good seasons of use. Not a bad rocker for walk in, nice and easy to get on in the frozen morning. Great fit with my Grivel crampons. The best hard shell I have seen.
