Ski runners: your savior has arrived.
Go light and move fast when you slip your foot into the Dynafit Dy.N.A. PDG Ski Boot. Similar to its big brother, the Dy.N.A. Evo, the PDG offers the same hiking and gliding performance with only 100g of added weight. From its Quick Step-In binding compatibility to the light, stiff shell and plenty of forward-lean capability, you'll find all the race-ready features you need to ascend with speed and descend with power.
- Injection-molded shell is thin and lightweight, with a soft and more progressive flex than that of this boot's big brother, the Dy.N.A. Evo
- Fiberglass cuff and spoiler help to minimize overall boot-weight without sacrificing the ability to drive hard through turns
- Racing last is spartan and streamlined, but maintains a high level of comfort so you can run fast and aggressively without beating up your feet
- Race liner keeps your boot lightweight, offers thermo-moldable customization, and provides a warm, cushioned surface between your foot and your boot
- Hook-and-buckle catches allow you to micro-adjust the buckles to dial in the perfect fit
- Ultra-Lock buckle system flips between ski and walk/hike modes with a simple flick of the top buckle, which loosens the cuff for skinning
- 15-18 degrees of forward lean allow for an aggressive stance that enables control and power whether you're hopping through tight terrain or diving through deep snow
- In walk/hike mode, the cuff is allowed up to 62 degrees of rotation so you can get all the freedom you need to skin and hike effortlessly
- EVO Race Sole is fitted with large rubber lugs that grip hardpack and slick ice with all the traction you need
- Compatible with Dynafit Quick-Step-In binding systems (sold separately)

Disclosure: I have not put these boots through the wringer, however, I have enough days to give an adequate boot review for sizing purposes.
I wear a size 9.5(-), meaning, my foot is bigger than a 9.0 but smaller than a 9.5. Additionally, my second toe on both of my feet are longer than my 'thumb' toe. Finally, the last of my foot is moderately wide. With all these factors, my foot most closely resembles the boot shape of La Sportiva brand boots. My best fitting boot, hands down is the La Sportiva Spectre. Yes they are a big 4-buck boot, but they are surprisingly light AND the flex is easily a full 60 degrees. 27.5 is the perfect size and fit for (9.0-9.5 foot).
Dynafit, traditionally, has never fit my feet really well. After playing around with sizes, I purchased a 28.0. Out of the box the boot fit was pretty good. The last was definitely narrow, but not enough to warrant punching. I have since had some footbed work done and that is it. They feel great.
Can this boot be used with standard bindings?...
Can this boot be used with standard bindings? I have Marker The Squire bindings (standard downhill bindings).
Nope, these will only work in a tech binding. The lip in the front is barely big enough, just to really get a crampon bail across it definitely not big enough to fit in a step-in binding.
Hi Bill. On further research, I saw comments that the new Marker Lord SP was designed to accommodate both Alpine & AT boots. Therefore the Dyna PDG may fit. Do you offer or suggest this?

Reviews are appearing around the WWW suggesting that the outsole on the 13/14 PDGs and Evos is prone to rapid wear, making them unsuitable for a winter of actual mountain use. Anyone care to chime in?
Beware -- this picture of the EVO sole is after only five hours of cumulative off-snow travel. (Note that two of the lugs are so completely gone that you can't see any indication that they were ever there in the first place.)
Dynafit says this is entirely normal wear for the EVO or PDG, and hence not covered under warranty.

Heel plunge in hard snow and a breakable crust?....no problem. Buckles now stay latched :)

I really like this boot. It skis like a TLT6 without the tongue and even less weight. Which says it skis exceptionally well. Sole wear is a problem to be aware of. Still no idea when or if Dynafit is going to offers rubber for a resole. I'd ask first before buying. But as I said...I really like this boot. It is enough boot to push around my 113mm short Huascarans amazingly enough. But better used on lighter, skinnier full on speed touring or race skis.
They fit crampons well (grivel) and climb technical terrian nicely. Just don't use them on rock/talus/ rough trails...the soles will shred in the blink of an eye. 5 star PLUS ski/race boot...3 star skimo boot because of the lack of durability in the sole. Too bad that.
The best boots ever! These boots are so amazingly light, and comfortable!

How do these compare, width-wise, with the Aliens? I've got a wider foot and am typically scared of Scarpa, but folks have been saying that the Alien has more room than the PDG.
More narrow than the Aliens. Same here narrow feet. I get a betetr fit in the Dynafit race boots.
I should have been more clear. I think the PDG is more narrow than an Alien. Feels that way for me. It isn't much...but you really need tot try these guys on.
