    Buyer beware! This item description omits an important piece of information. These boots have the thicker "telemark norm" duckbill. Depending on your skis, they won't fit your 75mm 3-pin bindings, as they did not fit mine. This is not mentioned in the binding compatibility and the description is likely misleading, with no reference to telemark and direct reference to touring and nordic. Bummed because I really like to style and level of stiffness of these boots (much lighter and more streamlined than the White Woods 3-pin boots - which is exactly what I'm looking for. Bummed to be out the shipping dollars to learn this the hard way. Adding this review to help others avoid the same mistake (amplifying the info I only now have noticed is also mentioned in other reviews and customer Q&A).

    I have only had time to wear boots on one ski trip but the quality and performance left me happy with the purchase. I would recommend especially at the STP price.

    These boots do have the 3-pin toes for those older bindings; however, they are made for telemarking or back-country skiing, and the sole is too think to fit in our older cross-country ski bindings. They also have the higher ankle protection and slot in the heel like a telemarking boot - made for skiing downhill with bindings that hold the heel to the ski.

    75 mm 3 pin is the best for xc touring, off trail with hills. Boots are 75mm BC, work well with Voile 3 pin bindings. Nice boots, seem well made, probably take some time to break in.. but thats to be expected.

    These are stiff and strong ski boots. I'm still breaking them in, and the right boot still pinches painfully, but it's getting better with use, and the last time I took them out, I skied for 2 hours without significant pain. Note, the bills are for "backcountry" not touring bindings. I found I'd made a mistake, but I was able to shave a little rubber off to make them fit my touring bindings. NOTE: They run a FULL size large. The first ones I ordered were 10.5 (my normal size for boots) and way too large. I returned for 9.5 and they prove a good fit.
