The baddest, burliest boot on the block.

Born in a top-secret lab hidden deep in the Italian Alps, the Il Moro T I.D. Ski Boot was developed in collaboration with Dalbello's pro team riders to give top athletes the performance they need to shred pants-wetting lines and scare the crap out of themselves in the park. Unfortunately it doesn't come with a diaper, but it's got everything else you need to take your game to the next level. 

Everything the Il Moro does is made possible by its three-piece Cabrio Design Architecture. By combing a stiff PU shell and cuff with a shock-absorbing polyamide tongue, Dalbello was able to give the Il Moro a smooth, progressive flex with that has plenty of backbone, so you can drive your skis hard without overpowering your boots. The progressive flex also works with a full-length Landing Gear anti-shock footbed to take the pain out of hard landings and minimize shin bang.

Like a symphony, the Il Moro truly works because all its parts are operating in concert. The Dynalink Rearfoot Retention System, for example, uses an instep buckle that's linked to the medial (inside) ankle of the shell, rather than to the cuff, as is traditional. This provides bomber heel hold without interfering with the flex of the upper boot, since the instep closure isn't attached to the cuff. It also prevents distortion during flexion, so you never develop sloppy spots when consequences are high. There's also an inverted bottom buckle, which closes on top of the shell to force the foot down into the bootboard, increasing control and power transmission.

Since the cuff offers such a carefully-crafted flex, it has a Double-Wide Park Trekker Cuff Buckle, which ratchets an extra-large plate down over the top of the cuff to prevent any loosening around the upper ankle. The heat-moldable wrap-style I.D. Thermo IL Moro Liner is designed to work with the Trekker Buckle to secure the leg with 360-degree support, unlike traditional tongue-style liners that tend to have dead spots when flexed in certain directions. In addition to the liner, the Il Moro offers full customization in the form of twin canting and forward lean adjustments, so you can dial in the fit to insane degrees. The only drawback is you won't have any more excuses when you case a jump or ragdoll down your line.

day one review...holy heel hold

broke these out today and was seriously impressed. although i do take a few laps through the park i would in no way describe myself as a "freestyle" skier. i rode these everywhere but the park today and couldn't have been happier. i'm sure they'll be great in the park and so far they are great outside of it.

couple things:

- out of the box fit was really comfortable, didn't feel any pinch points at all during the day. feet became numb at points but that was expected and was easily fixed by unbuckling for the ride up. i haven't added any insoles, nuked the liners yet, or gone through any fittings yet and may not need to.
- heel retention is the real deal. i have very narrow heels and haven't found a boot yet that could hold me down even on day one. i may need to add some "j-bars"/c-pads in the future but maybe not.
- contour 4 is as advertised. i'm switching to this boot after a couple seasons in FT high-fives with a 102 last which i bought for comfort after years of crushed feet. in addition to very narrow heels i have sneaky wide, some say deformed, forefeet. however, i didn't feel any of my classic forefoot pain points (or any pain points) in the il moro's.
- the flex on these is way, way, WAY smoother than any other boot i've had, including my FT's. i rode these straight out of the box with the exception of stiffening the flex up to about a 110 with the parts included with the boots.
- incredibly light. it actually took me a couple runs to get used to how light these felt. which is surprising since it looks like the FT's are actually lighter based on the FT specs on their website.
- the upper "trekker" buckle is really sweet and works as well if not better than any ski/hike feature offered by other 2-piece boots. it was kind of a pain in the d!*k to get unbuckled at the end of the day but all-in-all, sweet.
- these drive fat skis like ricky bobby on trucker speed.

The heel cup on the KR2 is more pronounced. Does it hold better than the Il Moro?

So comfortable.!!!

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

Usually when i get done with the day skiing, my feet kill, i've used these boots and it feels like my feet are on the skis, and they never hurt. The new top strap is amazing to walk in. the liners mold to your feet and there is no pinching anywhere, Love these, used to only ride full tilts, now, i'll only ride dalbello.

How much do these boots weigh? Trying to compare some Dalbellos to FT Boots and can't find any specs

They are lighter than FT's, and you will be able to notice the difference too.

Style + Comfort + Top Notch Quality

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

All around amazing boots. I've used them 8-10 times and they already feel broken in and custom fit to my feet. These look even better in person. No shinbang, easy adjustment with the buckles, and the cuff buckle makes hiking and walking in these boots extremely easy without buckle flopping around. Can't go wrong with these.

Comfort when going hard

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I've been ripping around on these for a few seasons and they're all around awesome boots. No shinbang, easy adjustment with the buckles, and they've made it through some of my gnarly wipeouts. Would highly recommend to any skier looking for big mountain lines to taking laps in the park

Best Freeride Boots out!

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I have been using the IL Moros for 3 season now and i do not see myself switching in the near future. They are great supportive boots that are perfect for jumps, rails, halfpipe, powder, or whataver you like. I have not had any pain or shin bang ever since i started to use them, the only weakness would be if you have a wider foot. these definitely fit a more narrow footed skier.

yea hey there strange as it may sound to the KR 2 lovers which are indeed good boots and fit a batch of slightly wider feet maybe better than these I prefer this iL Moro. Its a matter of stance and ramp angle which I feel are more correct on the Moro imho. The flex is smoother on the Moro design not that its inherently bad on the KR 2 ( I have a pair). The KR 2 approaches things from a more upright stance which supposedly helps you wth today's moustache rocker or more center mounted skis. I get that but believe it can be harder on your knees while rippin rough terrain. Would be interesting for Dalbello if they have their ears turned on to use aspects of the KR 2's lower shell where they relieved hot spots, put the old ramp angle back which is perfect on the older KR's and current Moro's and use the Trekker Cuff ratchet for an updated Moro.
