I paired this boot with the 3 pin Voile HD bindings and some Rossignol BC70 skis. This setup is perfect for off track skiing around Minnesota.
What I like about the boot: - The boots fit true to size and didn't really have much of a break in period.
-They feel very solid and give a lot of support. This does mean they weigh more, but I don't mind if i'm getting great support and construction
- I've been out in temps in the -5 to -10 range for an hour or so and my toes have never been cold. I use a "darn tough" ski sock when I go out and thats all I have ever needed
- They keep snow out really well. I have never had an issue with snow getting inside my boot.
- They look good and should age well. I have boots that are all sorts of wacky colors and while they are still functional, they are super ugly now. So these boots shouldn't suffer that fate
- 3pin 75mm binding feels so good for BC touring. I can push my skis around a lot better then a NNN BC setup and the flex. of the boot is far better then a NNN BC boot.
Here are the things I don't like about them. -Straps are just a bit to short and can make getting into the buckles a pain. They work fine, but an extra cm would have been great.
-The boot makes a little noise against my voile bindings. AFter 10-12 rides, the sound has gone away, but it was the tread along the edge of the boot that was slightly rubbing against the binding. It wasn't bad enough that I felt like grinding it down, but it was something I noticed.
- The binding release isn't the most obvious in the instructions. I actually put the boots on, buckled up and then couldn't figure out how to get the damn things off. You have to push down on the outside part of the buckle, so the buckle goes into the strap. The instructions look like you have to lift it and it took a few minutes of looking at it to make sense of it. Once you know what to do, it's great.
Overall a great boot and I have no hesitation in recommending them to others.
I use them for off track skiing. Warm and comfortable with easy to adjust fit.You will need to wear them around the house to break them in before doing any long trails. I have paired them with waxed touring skis and metal edged army surplus skis for use in the woods.
Is this 100% traditional style or can this be used for skate ski as well?

Best Answer:This is a BC touring boot for a 3 pin 75mm binding and touring skis that are often waxless and metal edged. You will want either a cuffed Combi boot or a pure skate boot that uses a NNN or SNS binding.
