Fit great out of the box, one small punch required for a nuisance of a bunion. Fit/comfort/walking/skiing all 5 star. Simply awesome boots.
I haven’t had a chance to use any of the gear set up yet! Waiting for that snow to pile up! But it sure looks pretty hanging out in my living room.
I do have to say though, that my fitting (and therapy of decisions) sessions with Jim Howarth were absolutely amazing!! He was incredibly informative, and did a great job at listening to my needs. Getting into any new sport can often be very intimidating, and I have shy’ed away from touring for so many years because it seems like such an elitist cool crew club. Jim has done a great job at opening that door for me, and I am so excited to get out there and try it out!!
I just started ski touring 3 seasons and this was my third new boot in a row. First one the fit was too narrow and I couldn't get comfortable all season. 2 seasons ago, I tried a boot that fit better but still wasn't performing like I wanted it to (I grew up alpine skiing). Last season I read a lot about this boot and tried it on. I tried this on at cripple creek in Avon and was blown away! It fit great (even perfect after heat molding), had a nice toebox fit, and the walk mode is incredible!!! Thanks Cripple Creek!
