    I guess these are "seconds." One boot was find but the other feels like there is small lump in the sole

    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.

    I have another pair of these boots and the reason I like them is the Velcro strap across the ankle. It makes all the difference in keeping the boot tight to my foot. I cross country ski over all types of terrain and these are perfect for that.

    I replaced a pair of Rossignols that my dog had chewed with these boots. Skied 6 days on groomed trails in Alaska and these boots were awesome. The internal laces are brilliant - no plastic or fussing - easy to tie and they stayed tight. They were warm and comfortable for 4-10 miles a day!

    I bought this boot in my usual size (44 EU = 10 US, contrary to STP and some conversions) and it fit great. Although I don't yet have skate skis, as a newbie XC skier I still like the ankle support of this combi boot. I like that I *could* use it for skate skiing some day, and moreover I'd feel more comfortable going off-track (although perhaps not "back country") with these boots than with more flexible non-combi classic boots. The toe is still plenty flexible on these, so I have no complaints. At the STP price, I even bought a second pair for my 10yo son (38 EU = 5-6 US) to use with his new skate skis --and I like that he could also use them with classic nordic skis in the future, if so desired, as well. 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.
