Two thumbs up

Had these out for two short tours since purchasing, skid/flexed well the first turn, unlike several other boots I've owned. The bellows are a bit softer than BD's Custom boot, witch is good IMO, a lot smother flexing while just as laterally stiff, I think these are a few ounces lighter too. The walk mode is an added bonus, and the craftsmanship/durability seems to be top notch, I love the vibram soles, they seem to offer a bit more traction and durability for climbing up stuff. The heel retention buckle is also amazing, loosen the others and just leave that one done up for touring. I have a normal width foot and these fit snug, but I haven't molded them yet. Part of me wants to buy another pair in case scarpa stops making these like the last T-Races...

Edit: The plastic used in the bellows guard on these is exceptionally soft, ie: not that durable, after a half season I'm wearing into the actual bellows, great skiing boo tbut durablity is still an issue, the bellows and everything has softened up quite a bit too.. plan on packing out at least a half size...
