  • the specs say that it is compatible with alpine bindings, however the product photo/video does not show the front toe welts that would be necessary for this to be possible. they appear to alpine touring boots, however missing a critical part. Alpine touring boots are designed to be used with compatible alpine touring DIN-releasable AT bindings only. AT soles do not fit most downhill bindings and/or could interfere with release mechanisms. they seem to be incompatible with any binding system and should not be used unless STP can offer clarification on the missing toe welts. DO NOT BUY.

  • As mentioned above DO NOT BUY...I bought these last year and like mentioned they do not have the correct binding for release mechanism. I took a bad fall, did not clip out of my skis and ended up tearing my meniscus and ACL. May be good for touring but not downhill skiing, I don't know why they are listed as alpine ski boots or even similar to.
