Looking for a lightweight, flexible AT boot which I can fit a wide foot into following some foot surgery. Very accommodating thermal fitting options, including a mold-able outer shell I had to sit out last year's season here in Colorado due to extended recovery following bone spur removal surgery. Nevertheless, I'm back in the saddle so to speak and am looking to expand into the AT realm. Following doing a fair bit of boot research and getting good advice from a Scarpa rep I spoke with I chose the… Full review
Dalbello Sherpa 2/8 I.D.
Where have these been all my life? These are my first brand new boots and the first I have bought online. I must admit I was worried about the fit but I was very impressed after they arrived. These are also my first touring boots. I own two other pairs of downhill-only boots. These were on super clearance. They may be discontinued. My skiing style: As the boots say, I am 80/20, meaning I ski 80% in the resort and 20% off-piste. I am a blue-black skier trying to become better at diamond runs. Rainier… Full review
Dynafit TLT 5 Mountain TF-X Boot
This is an extremely light boot that is ideal for fast touring. If you value the up as much as the down, this boot is great. Even if the down is more important, you'll have more gas in the tank to enjoy the descent with these boots. I am blown away by how much faster I can tour and how much more energy I have at the end of the day. I knew that getting lighter boots would make a difference but this is amazing. I can make uphill facing kick turns smoothly and in control whereas before, I always… Full review
Black Diamond Prime
Very good lightweight touring boot. Comfortable for wide feet. I have the first version (white and grey) of these boots. Very comfortable, suitable for people with wide feet. The heel stays tightly in place. Warm too, and I love the Boa attachment system for the liners. Good performance when skinning, sufficient articulation, although there is pressure on the shins, due to the plastic overlapping at the front. I prefer boots with a tongue like the Dynafit Zzero, because you can loosen it to gain… Full review
Dynafit Mercury TF
A great "quiver of one" boot that is equally capable of driving your skis on piste, doing laps in the side country, as well as downhill focussed backcountry touring. I had been using the Garmont Radiums to ski my K2 Hardsides (170cm long / 98mm underfoot) with the G3 Onyx binding. However after three return trips to the boot fitter, the Radiums just wouldn't do the job for me (they had too much volume for my feet). So the retailer swapped them out for a lower volume boot. After re-evaluating… Full review
La Sportiva Spectre 2.0
Finally tiring of heavy tele gear, I was looking for a decent boot for plodder level SkiMo events. Bought these used, and my feet and legs are happy at the end of the day. I am very happy with the boot, and the overall build quality. I feel La Sportiva is a top tier brand, and they are my preferred brand for footwear. I found the powerstrap to be a nuisance. I removed it, and feel I have a better range of motion, and less shin-bash when loosend up. The buckles have a tendency to pop up/out… Full review
