Finally got to test drive these yesterday. Snow conditions were early season with only about 15" of groomed cover with some slick spots. I had adjusted my new boots as best I could before actually skiing, and needed to make some other small adjustments once on the mountain. I removed the fabric bumpout that goes behind the calf as it was pressing a little too hard to be comfortable. I had to use a looser buckle setting in 1/4 previous buckle settings I made-not bad. Felt very comfortable and spacious without being to loose. I would say I have an average foot-medium width, size 9 on one foot 8 1/2 on the other so I ordered size 9-perfect. These boots are noticeably lighter than my old equivalent Nordicas which is a huge plug-I'm tired of dragging around extra weight. The tips of my toes started to get cold skiing basically in shade but I would consider these boots typical for the price. What I will do to improve heat retention is move my metallic thermal barrier from my old boot liners to these boot liners and that should boost the warmth. If the warmth in these boots somehow exceeded the norm I would have given them 5 stars.

Very nice boots. Couldn't get these at the ski shop for this price. Have to do the research yourself but well worth it. These are easy to get into and the liners pull out easily to dry. Very good looking with the white and black tops. Good flex.

We have purchased Technica boots before so we were hopeful that the quality was in line with our past experience. These boots look great, fit great and even though we have yet to ski in them we find no red flags.
