Supportive & comfy combi boot, great for boys and girls as well as women

Verified Buyer Reviewed by HiRezNut from Rochester on Monday, April 2, 2018
I bought this boot in 39 EU for my kids, mainly for next season. It's very similar to the unisex/men's version (of which I already purchased 2 pairs: 38 EU for my son, and 44 EU for myself), distinguishable mainly via the blue vs red color, both of which are suitable for both boys and girls, according to everyone in our household. I still like the ankle support of this combi boot, and the fact that it can be used for either skate or classic nordic skiing. The toe is still plenty flexible on these, so there is no problem using it for classic style, while the ankle support makes it well suited to skate (as well as off-track) skiing. I just wouldn't completely trust the STP sizing conversion from EU to US: Alpina's own size chart looks more correct to me. E.g. I wear about a 10 US and the 44 EU in the unisex/men's version is plenty big for me, while my kids (boy & girl) currently wear 4-5 US and were comfortable wearing both the 38 EU unisex/men's and this 39 EU women's (Eve) version --which my son said he'd me more than happy to wear-- although I think they both have room to grow into them as they grow.
