Fischer BCX 6

I used these 1 season and noticed the Stitching was coming apart. Contacted the place I bought them at, sent a picture along. They said they would not warranty, because of wear marks near stitching that was coming part. So disappointed, what junk! A little wear should Not make a difference. I would go with another Company, I would not endorse Fischer products if they are not going to warranty their products! I used these 1 season and noticed the Stitching was coming apart. Contacted the place I… Full review

Alpina BC 1550

The worst! I tried two sizes to see if it was a size issue that was causing the break point to push down on the base of my big toenails causing much pain. The one size was just as bad as the other. I was able to return one pair, the other I had to sell on GearTrade. Don't waste your time with these; go for the Alpine Alaska. That one is worth the premium price tag and is what I'm currently using.   Full review

Alpina BC 1550

Best classic boots I have used. Comfortable, good support, right flex, warm, easy to put on and off with some thoughtful details. Only issue is that the surface material on softer parts of older version delaminated and flakes. The cloth version has not. In addition to summary, the lacing is outstanding.  Easy and quick to use and holds well. The strap provides additional support and ensures laces do not come loose. Best fit I have experienced. I have medium to wide foot, normal arch, slightly narrow… Full review

Fischer BCX 6

If you want a 200€ boot that lasts a good half a season. Used a total of 30 days before having to retire the boots. Within the first day the first seams of the boot started to unravel. The plastic exoskeleton wears out the boot material on the heel (this is only aesthetic). Above the toes on the top of the boot the seam between the hard plastic protective toecap/sidewall and the soft top material unraveled and the hard plastic also teared due to the boot flexing. This lets snow into the boot (first… Full review

Crispi Svartisen GTX BC

A solidly built, high-end NNN-BC boot that delivers on both touring and turning performance. The 2-buckle, hinged plastic ankle cuff boosts downhill control. A good choice for messing about in the Vermont woods or Norwegian style hut-to-hut touring with summits on the side. Back in the '90s, as plastic boots were rising to their current dominance in the backcountry ski world, I was a regular on rec.skiing.backountry, an online bulletin board for back country skiers. I was then and remain a proponent… Full review

Scarpa F1

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

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

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.

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
