- Q & A
First Pair and I Think They're a Winner.
I purchased these as a novice/beginner with Alpine skiing background. I found them to fit well although I sized up from what I normally downhill ski in. They have nice insulation so my feet stayed toasty(yes!) These boots are comfortable but offer a lot more performance than I was expecting. I found that my skis were definitely doing what my feet and brain were telling them. There is a really nice sole that has great traction on slippery snow and ice. I have used these four days in a row and my initial impression is that this is a great boot. I paired them with a Voille 3pin binding and it was a good fit.
- Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
Only skied 'em one day so far (on the Altai Skis Hok). Didn't experience the cold/wet issues described by others. Surprisingly comfortable to walk in; even more surprisingly easy to put on all considered. A beefy boot, but based on that one day there's not a place I wouldn't consider taking 'em. Using the Hok with Voile 3-pin bindings; my experiences with cable bindings included blisters so went back, and so far glad I did.
Nice boot, if you don't mind wet feet.
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
Good day touring boot, but would not recommend it for multi-day tours. Took it on a 3 day hut-to-hut tour; my feet were wet at the end of the first day. Also had a hard time drying the boots out that evening, despite hanging them over a warm wood burning stove (common problem with wet/damp thinsulate). The result - damp, cold feet for the next two days. Paired them with Madshus Eon skis with Voile cables bindings. Nice set up for touring. Even handled the downhills well.
Fischer BCX 675 Boot
poor fit, low quality
It looks like a lot of other people can wear this type of boot - the plastic/synthetic material ones manufactured in Asia. Personally, I can't.
I found the fit on this particular boot to be poor. Even though the boot was a size too small, there was almost no heel retention on my foot, with the available laces and straps tightened my heel was still floating free, which would be a nightmare for skiing.
The fit does run small - the insole on the Fischer BXC 675 was almost a half-inch shorter than the insoles of my Lowa boots that are the same size (47).
I would not recommend these, but would instead recommend the all-leather Alpina Alaska 75mm, which costs about 50% more but is about 10 times the quality and fit.
Comfy, Stable and pretty warm
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
I settled on this boot to use with a 3pin binding, and the Madshus Epoch ski. Very nice combination. The boot drives the skis well enough on the downhill, even with my lack of technique. They are very comfy and are pretty warm. On colder days, say less than 15 F, I find that I need to use a chemical type toe warmer, as the insulation around the toe box isn't as thick as other parts of the boot. I wear a size 11.5 US shoe, and use a size 46. The boot is high volume, so even with an aftermarket footbed, and a thick sock, I still have a little extra movement in the boot, which could probably be remedied with another shim in the sole. Dries a little slowly, but seems to be very tough, as it shows little wear after 2 years of use. All in all, a good backcountry ski boot.
For binding compatibility, how tall is the duck bill in mm?
