I did research in Alaska last summer which required me to ski across most of the environment. The boot is comfortable, but provides little to no support on skis, making them challenging on the downhill. The sole is extremely flexible, making a twisted ankle more likely. Half way through the summer the main stitch running on the inside of the foot blew out, and i had to resort to duct taping my boot the rest of the summer. I dont recommend this boot outside of leisure.
