BC 1550

rated 2.5 of 5 stars These could be one of the best nnn bc boots out there if not for one major issue, as everyone else has also noticed. It's a shame, really. These are really good boots with just the right balance of flex and support, they're well constructed, have great materials and perform really well on bc skis. But the toe box, oh that stupid toe box. Seems to fold over when flexed, pushing down on the toes just like everyone else has said. I'm sure it could be broken in over time, but during that time would… Full review

BC 1550

rated 1 of 5 stars Exactly the same problem as another reviewer—blisters on big toes. There is a group of four of us that all have these boots and we all have this problem. I wouldn’t recommend these boots. Not only do I have blisters on my big toes but the backs of the boots rub on my heels causing terrible blisters. My friend got the red coloured ones and she says that they are much better. Full review

rated 2 of 5 stars Warm boot, but the toe box collapsed putting pressure on the top of my right toes at each stride. I am currently shopping for a new boot due to the discomfort of these boots in the toe area. Full review

BC 1550

rated 2 of 5 stars Nice looking sturdy XC boot that is well lined and great for cold weather, but with a MAJOR problem.

After about five trips; perhaps 4-7 miles, the toe box collapses right at the break where the laces end and the firm toe area starts. I keep trying different socks, snugging up the fit, but no… Full review

Alaska 75

rated 5 of 5 stars Good value for money. Good overall boots for rolling in fells. Bought these boots to replace 20-year-old Asolo telemark boots. My usage is around 75% of skiing and 25% of downhill so the flex is perfect for my rolling in nearby fells. Now after <100 km of skiing these boots are breaking in properly. Heel keeps in place quite well after switching to waxed laces instead of cotton ones. Coldest temperature of using these boots has been around -10° Celsius and no frostbites with one liner sock.
