Alpina 1550 Backcountry Boot
The Boots are warm and have a wide toebox--something i was seeking. but, the lacing system is painful on my ankles and the overall fit of the boot is large. that said, i wear a second pair of short socks in them. i have yet to master the laces in a way that is comfortable on a long ski.
the boots appear to made of cheap material and it does not easily bend or mold.
overall, they are better than what i had but i feel like for the money i spent the boots should have some componet of leather and be easy to cinch around my foot.
