Wasn't able to get it on because I have a very high instep. I wanted a walk ski boot that was wide. This fit the bill but because of my high instep, I couldn't use it. The walk ski feature has a limited range but is way better than a regular ski boot.

Purchased just in time for Xmas week ski vaca. STP is top notch in terms of shipping, returns, etc. KILLER PRICE with all the coupon codes via email,
my friends thought I stole the boots! I'm an expert skier about 6'1 and around 200 lbs, so I needed a stiff boot to do the job. The skiing was hard pack and fast and these boots held up well to the speed. They sit considerably higher on the calf then my old Dolomites, I'd say around 2" at the back cuff. The Intuition liners were great- did some playing around, footbeds in and out- decided to ski without after experiencing some hotspots (a bit tight) with the bed- but I do have a large volume foot and warm socks took up some room as well. As others have said- and I experienced, the liner tongue does get caught on the boot shell when putting on, and it's a [...] to put right- some bloodied knuckles from the shell but I think it will get easier with time. Also, noticed I had the boot shell-tongue in b/w the shell buckle overlaps a couple times (correct needs to be under shell overlaps), didn't affect/ notice while skiing, only after!!! It's the black piece that runs from the bottom buckle all the way to the top and kind of spreads the buckle tension of all 4 evenly to better lock you in- a first for me and I like it. I also think it serves to stiffen the boot flex progressively as a result.
Overall a very successful few days on this boot- very pleased. They are quite stiff and overall very comfortable once dialed in (had to relocate the lower cuff buckle outward for more room- upper was fine- and I don't have large kankles!). Tremendous leg support with high cuff. Walk function is obsolete in a real world alpine ski day- I tried using it on several occasions but didn't find the function necessary on 2nd day- as it provides forward movement not the backward which I find would be better suited for walking. Excellent grip from the soles. Super light weight- compared to my wife's 27.5 Mono Atomics, my 30.5 Mono's were lighter- she was in awe.
Couple ski tech guys on the mountain stopped me to ask about it- so it seems to be a regarded product.

Been skiing them for a week or so now. Definitely a "break-in" period as the Intuition liners molded to my feet, but feeling great now! Three days in a row now of 8:30 AM to closing ski days. A good all day boot. Haven't toured in them yet. Walk mode is adequate when top buckle and strap are loose.
