These boots are quality Italian made x-c ski boots. Thick leather, Vibram sole, gusseted tongue, quality lacing hardware, good laces.

The ONLY downside is the current lot they have in stock are sized in UK sizing. One full size too large. I wear 11 or 11 1/2 size footwear. I ordered a size 11, had ... Read More

    Nice all leather boots. Made in Italy. I haven't been skiing in them yet (July in Utah), but just walking around in them, I can say the fit is true to size.

    They will definitely take some breaking in, as is the case with most leather boots. They only have one seam on the entire outer boot, so I think they should hold up well.

    The toes fit well in my Voile 3-pin bindings.

    Looking forward to trying these out!

    Great boot, well built, comfortable, stable. Good back country boots. They do require a BC 3 pin binding. The pair I bought were at least 1-2 sizes larger than labeled. Had to return them.

    I like the looks and feel of these boots. They go well with some older skis that I am using. The are a good balance between keeping my feet warm, providing support and not being too heavy.

    After 6km (2x 3km) of classic X-C skiing, I can't tell how good the boots will be. They are not completely comfortable yet and still hurt my feet a bit. It seems promising though. The insulation is good enough for a dry -20, but it seems to thin for colder temperature or even warmer but humid wheater.

    Talking about shipping, it is another story !

    1- STP took two weeks to actually ship the boots.

    2- STP ship their stuff through UPS. After many negative experiences with UPS over the years, there is one thing I can say : they offer a consistent service, no surprise, always the same. They loose the parcel, they can't copy and paste the address the shipper gave them without doing a mistake, they send the parcel back to the shipper whitout notifying the receiver... think of something and it can happen ! They have nice representative on the phone but that's it. Looks like that company is to big to get it together at this point.

    So thinking of buying from STP ?
    Think about their shipping method, and avoid them if you can ! Took 5 weeks to get the boots to Canada from the States when 2 weeks are enough to get a parcel from France or England !

    3-pin x-country ski bindings are going the way of the dinosaur and decent boots are becoming more difficult to find. I had worn out a pair of Alico boots and, when these appeared in my size at Sierra Trading Post, I immediately placed my order. I was very satisfied with my previous pair and I expect that the new boots will serve me as well. There have been a few minor design changes, but it is essentially the same boot. The boots are comfortable and provide great support.

    The boots run true to size, if anything, a little large.

    The principle design change from my previous pair is the sole. In the old design, the boot was sewn to the sole and leather formed the top layer of the sole, including the toe. That ensured that, with use, the boot would not separate from the sole. I think that the leather also reinforced the toe. But, with several seasons of use, the leather on the toe started to wear through and, eventually the toe cracked (even good boots don't last forever!)

    I will be curious to see how well this new pair holds up - only time will tell. There are two possible issues. In the new model, the boot appears to be glued to the sole. But, as can be seen in the photo, the boot is held in a cup in the sole and appears to be a design feature intended to mitigate the risk of separation. The sole also appears to be constructed in two layers, presumably a design intended to prolong the life of the sole because cracking of the toe is always a risk with 3-pin boots.

    The boots appear to be designed and constructed to provide several seasons of use.
