Black Diamond Push Telemark Ski Boot
Great Boot! I got these last season as a step up from an old pair of Scarpa T1's w/intuition liner, and I noticed a huge improvement in power and energy transfer. I would recommend them to anyone. They are still supercomfortable even when super clamped down. I recommend getting some better footbeds than what they come with, but I've done this for almost every ski boot I've owned. I don't know what the reviewer who cracked them several times was doing - in all humility, I ski pretty hard, and I have not noticed any unusual wear and tear. Get the Push.
Great Boot, but wide
- Gender: Male
- Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
I demo'ed these this past weekend and thought the boot itself was great. I wear a 10 shoe, 26.5 dobermann and used the 28.0 Push and feel I was in a size too big. Also, the boot is very wide so I would want something narrower.
if you want more than one season from em
- Gender: Male
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
This boot is super fun to ski on, and they look really cool. they work well for cruising groomers, or steeps. For XtrEmE skiing you might want the custom or the T race. The boot is very warm and the boa system is quite effective! The boot skis fine, but the durability of the plastic is extremely questionable. I have cracked a pair of these in the back to the right and left of the ankle on both boots, and so has my friend. My same friend also cracked the new pair that black diamond supplied him with in an insane fashion. He cracked the front of the duck bill off, and the whole lower inch of the boot started to peel and crack off, and you could stick your fingers inside and touch the liner. That same day he cracked the other boot in the back about 6 inches. His and my boots absolutely blew up!!!! Black diamond did indeed replace the boots for free in about 2 weeks, but it is not all worth the hassle....You might as well buy scarpas and save yourself an extra 2 weeks of skiing instead of waiting for a new pair of boots. T1s or T race.
Any chance of these being sold in size...
Any chance of these being sold in size 30.
Should have bought them sooner
Great fit! The right stiffness. It took me a lil bit to get used to them from my previous boots (Crispi XP). The BOA system for the inner boot is amazing! My foot felt good and secure before I even tightened the outer boot. I'm going to enjoy these boots for many seasons to come!

Somebody give me the what's what on these boots. Are they pure, melt your face awesome? How is the touring comfort?
Has anyone tried strapping crampons to...
Has anyone tried strapping crampons to these? I've got the Black Diamond Cyborgs.
The BD Cyborg Pro Crampon will work with these boots.
i just got these boots and personally...
i just got these boots and personally prefer there to be a natural bend up at the ball of the foot (flex crease) so that when standing out of the bindings on level ground the tip toe peace is ruffly a cm of the ground. i understand this does gradually come with time, but i have seen and heard ways of tying the boot down in a flexed position overnight with 3-pin bindings (which the 'push' can't do), so my question is what is the best way of doing this without using my bindings and blowing out the cartridges?
WHY! would you want to do that? The boots are designed without rocker to engage the binding sooner.read:"more control".Binding companys sell wedges to reduce rocker.
I am a mondo 29.2 should I go with a 28.5-29...
I am a mondo 29.2 should I go with a 28.5-29 or 29.5-30 shell size?
I would go with the bigger one. I made the mistake of sizing down and I regret it. You can always use padding to custom fit them if you goo up a size.
So I have been fitted for a 29.5 in a...
So I have been fitted for a 29.5 in a scarpa T-1 and T-2 Eco which on scarpa's size chart and BD's size chart equates to a 12.5 men's size but I wear a 11.5 us men's size shoe. I'm trying to find out what size boot I should order, a 29.5 what i have been fitted in or a 28.5 what the size chart says. Also what is the difference in sizing between bd and scarpa boots? Oh ya btw I live in San Diego and no one deals in scarpa or black diamond tele boots here.
If by "fitted in" you mean you have tried on the 29.5 and it fits, I'd go with what your body says and ignore the chart. Szing between Scarpa and BD is similar in length, BD tend to run a bit wider and higher volume.
Good Improvement from the original.
Got a chance to get in these boots and they are definitely a step up from the original. The first thing that you notice is the complete redo of the liner. It works a million times better for warmth, fit, and BOA use than the original. The boa was repositioned and I believe less of a BOA line to coil now too. The cuff flex on this boot matches the bellows flex.
It's a definite good choice for an overall, not needed to really rail boot.
