Wide Toe Box
Softer feel for a stiff boot performance
Good presentation, not loudly coloured or gawdy colour combinations
Heat Moulded Liners
slightly on the heavy side
These ski boots were at the time one of the widest toe box boots available in the price range (Paid £260) that I could afford with the kind of performance that i was looking for. They're very well made. The feel of the boot is quite contradictory in a way. They're quiet soft and cushioning internally but when strapped down for the days skiing they have a racey feel to them. A stiff shelled boot which allows for an accurate point and ski approach. For those who have a bowed or knock kneed alignment the boots have active canting adjustment. This means that the boots tilt from big toe to little toe on each boot leg respectively can be altered. This is useful as mentioned above if your legs are bias either edge in helping to keep the ski level at rest. The boots aren't understated in colour - yes they're predominantly grey, but the silver and metallic orange trimmings (subtle trimmings) make this a modern boot with a modern presentation.
As an addition to this already inviting intermediate/advanced boot technology combination, heated liners thrown into these boots mean that they can be customised for your foot on the inside, giving an all together much more comfortable fit. The only down side is, even for ski boots they are a little on the weighty side - this doesn't make much difference when your ability improves and the nimble movements make up for this anyway! Mine have lasted 4 seasons now, though only skiing a few weeks in all they've more than paid for themselves!!
