Awesome Boots

Managed to get a few days on these before I left Japan and they are awesome! Light and stiff!
Out of the box with a quick mould of the Intuition liners and they are equally best fitting boots straight up I've ever had. And that is with my chronically difficult, hard to fit foot (read high volume and structurally very rigid foot).
I have high hopes that when I write my follow up review, after some more days skiing on these down here in Oz this coming down under season, I will be raving about them.
They certainly feel stiff enough to rip around the resort and work instructing skiing. And they also feel nicely snug around my ankle which is good. They are certainly a little more snug than my old Spirit 4's which are comfortable but not really stiff enough for a moderately sized bloke (95kg) who skis reasonably aggressively.
So I will keep all posted!
Happy skiing!

Ok so follow up on above review....

Have quite a few more days on them now and I love them. The most comfortable stiff boot ever for my foot. I love the nice stiff flex and super positive edging. All round a great boot.

I still needed to create a little extra wiggle room in the toe box for my EE/EEE feet and super high arches but they are by far the best boot I own.

I managed to get an extra 3 days on them touring at the end of the season here in Oz on the Main Range and all good, almost broken in. I felt like i could stay in them all day and that for me is amazing, usually I'm struggling beyond 3-4hours! Great to hike in reasonably light and some clambering over rocks I inadvertently had to do they coped well with!

My only wish is that they were compatible with regular ISO Alpine bindings
... then I could teach and ski on my carvers with them.... hmmm but I couldn't ski on my dynafit bindings.... hmmm maybe I have to get some Hurricane Pros!
