Devestating

these boots destroy my feet. It's hard to find a wide slection of BC XC boots so i felt somewhat trapped by Alpina. I think my foot just doesn't fit their design, the heel is wider than mine so i get blisters every single time i use them (despite copious moleskin, duct tape, inserts, etc.). For many they can work, but if you have a narrow heel, save yourself the agony!!

i agree i have a sixe w 10.5 shoe and the boot while light and flexible is too wide in the heel and toe box for me...it packs out quite a bit too...my husband loves his but i am shopping for the narrower karhus!
