They do the job…so far… They’re my first tele bindings and were highly recommended at the time. My style tends to be more moderate than aggressive- I like to make lot of short turns. I have friends who had similar issues listed by other reviewers. However, I never had these problems and the only thing I had to change was buying the wedges to make my boot work better with the bindings. I recently bought the telemark adapters to upgrade this into a free pivot touring system and so far no issues- love the free pivot for BC. The only thing I noticed is that the wires next to the heel levers will pinch the boot if you try to crank your cartridges tighter... I don't know if this would become an issue later on.

I was psyched to see this euro retro style shoe that was also technical. The sticky rubber is very sticky but it will mark on hard floors. The shoe climbs really well, I've done some easy bouldering problems and some scrambles it's very precise. The shoe is airy and breaths so well in keeping my feet cool. They do fit kind of high volume so if you got a skinny foot you will need to use a superfeet or custom insoles.

I skied this boot all last winter and I must say I am pleased with the its performance. This intuition liner is tongue style, seems to do better in touring than wrap style, very comfortable and warm. This was my first experience with Booster straps and I love them! I used to go through velcro straps like crazy- Booster strap holds the cuff/tongue/liner all together securly. There is no play and seems to make the boot more responsive. Skookum is stiff and powerful I highly recommend skiing this with Dynafits with some big planks to really test the performance.
