these high top stiff boots are not designed for the track or flat terrain skier, they are great for telemark or alpine terrain, or steep mountainous trails where braking and turning have consequences, they require a break-in period, and otherwise are really nice way back in the country

    Look good, leather with rubber bumper, comfortable, very light weight, ski well, run a ½ size large even using heavy socks.

    Boot is well made , stiff enough for turning, looks like it will last along time. But we had to return the 7.5 L must have been miss marked , because it was over an inch longer than any other insole the my wife had , I was able to put it on and I ware a 10 M !
  • Reviewed by I stop for shoes from Oakland, CA on Friday, October 31, 2014
    I was hoping to replace my faithful Asolo Snowfields with these but was disappointed. They are unyielding rather than supportive. While pinching my toes, they simultaneously caused blisters on the backs of my heels due to their failure to bend in the forefoot during the "kicking" part of the cross-country stride. I couldn't get uphill to see if the stiff construction bore any benefits on the downhill. This armor-like quality reinforced my doubts whether the boot is made of "polymer impregnated" leather. I wanted to believe that I got a real deal, but I didn't.
  • Reviewed by Fifie the xc skier from Oregon on Tuesday, March 11, 2014
    These boots are great. They are old school type xc boots compared to newer 3 pin binding boots but if you haven't made the change to NNN bindings these are a great value. However, there are not many boots for 3 pin bindings to be found that are not more suited for more extreme backcountry xc skiing.

    If your are the type that prefers blazing your own trails the 3 pin binding offers great stability. Paired with these boots you can be comfortable and warm. These are great for the recreational skier with some daring but satisfied to keep its somewhat tame. They are supportive enough to do some telemarking.

    Comfortable and warm, great for flats and gentle slopes. BUT, not for the steeps, or expecting a lot of support.

Question & Answer

Questions about this product? Get answers from community and staff experts.

  • “How do I know if these are the right size? Specifically, how much room should there be in the front by the toes? If the arch is in the right place and my big toe isn't hitting is that the right fit even if I'm able to wiggle all my toes up and down a lot? Maybe it's good not to be too snug at the toe but how much should I be able to wiggle my toes and at what point might the boots be too big and I have to go down 1/2 size?”
    Asked by Love to Ski from Portland, OR on 2/8/2013 12:00:00 AM
    • Flex both feet. If the boots are properly sized, you should be able to feel your toes in light contact with the inside front of the boot.|Walk around the for a few minutes, paying attention to any hot spots, rubs or pinches. Touring boots in particular are sized rather like hiking boots, so if you're not comfortable walking around in them for a couple of minutes you probably won't be comfortable skiing in them for any length of time, either.

  • “How does the fit of these compare to the Alico women's Tahoe Hiking boots? If I wore a women's size US 10 for the hiking boots, would the same work for the ski boots? Thanks!”
    Asked by jumph from Unknown on 12/2/2012 12:00:00 AM
    • Yes the fit is very similar.

  • “One of your customer care answers claims these are for BC but not for telemark bindings. Can you revisit that? It's clear that they are 75mm, and not NNN-BC. Would they not fit fine in a conventional 75 mm cable (telemark) binding? I cant tell from the pictures that they have the groove for the cable.”

    • Sorry for the mix up, These are classic telemark boots, they will fit great with a conventional 75 mm cable (telemark) binding.

  • “what would it take to break these in,make them a little less stiff?”
    Asked by Anonymous from Unknown on 11/22/2011 12:00:00 AM
    • The break in period all depends on the amount of use. Do things like wearing them around the house will speed up the break in period

    • I think it will just take time. They're a perfect fit for me, and they'll keep my feet a lot warmer and drier than my current pair of boots (actually two pairs, so I can switch boots when my feet get wet).

  • “Are these boots appropriate for touring in very cold weather?”
    Asked by Marguerite from Girdwood, Ak on 12/13/2010 12:00:00 AM
    • With a thick sock they will be fairly warm but they will not be extremely warm as they are not insulated.
