Great boots

These boots are great for ladies who shred the BC. I ride them with my Dynastar Big Troubles mounted with Fritschi Freeride Plus bindings, which is a fantastic, playful and downhill-oriented touring rig.

A few complaints: The buckles are awful, I generally have to try more than once to get all the parts in their proper position. Also, I get epic shin bang (visible bruising) on all but the shortest tours. Carrying extra boot tongues in my pack and changing them out is annoying. Dynafit (oops, "tech") compatibility would be appreciated as well.

A few raves: The liners are great! Put your custom footbeds in them, get them molded, and you've got a custom liner! The overall stiffness of this boot compared to its weight is fantastic.

Overall, a solid downhill performer with a few issues on the up. Not a bad purchase!

Great boot!

Great boot! I’ve got an average to wide, yet low-volume foot with average instep, very small ankles, and low calves – basic boot fitting nightmare for the most part. I do more hiking than my current race boots allow without mind numbing pain, but was very worried that I wouldn’t be happy with the performance due to what I’ve heard about AT boots in general, but 3 days in- I’m really happy. Flex ratings are relative- I’d say they compare more to 90-100 flex of most boots I’ve tried (depending on temperature), but lateral (side) stiffness is great. I’m thinking that most of what I’ve heard about AT boots and performance has been from larger guys who like stiff boots and the material technology just isn’t yet there for them. However, for women, we’re lighter, so that doesn’t apply.
Have had them paired with my mid-fat (90 underfoot) and wide (115 underfoot) skis and they drive both sets well through moguls, crud, ice- basically anything I’ve thrown at them. Admittedly, they don’t have the same hard pack performance and vice grip ankle hold that the race boots do, and I’m sure I wouldn’t want to run gates in them, but they ski much better on the wide variety of terrain I hit, so I would say they’re very comparable to a high end “freeride” type alpine boot in a lighter weight, more comfortable package. I did need to add a butterfly pad behind my ankles to avoid heel slip, but that’s not a big deal to do, and would say that with the intuition liners filling in the extra space, these boots would allow them to fit a narrow foot as well. Also, I initially had a problem with the instep being too tight, but it turns out that the tongue on one of the boots had deformed a bit in the packaging and storing them buckled tight in a warm room for a couple of days solved that problem- I wonder if some of the instep issues that are noted in some of the reviews have to do with this as well and can be rectified.

Get this boot and try it on- if it fits your foot and you find it comfortable, it will do pretty much everything you want it to.

$800 CAD for 6 painful and grueling ascents.

From day one these boots have gnawed the inside of my right heel to shreds. After a few skis the bolt on the inside right boot has wore its way almost through the liner. It has been pain pain pain and more pain. Someone I met in the mountains with the same boots has had the same problem and has resorted to plastic bags to alleviate some of the rub and says this has helped a bit if you catch it BEFORE the "blisters" start. I have had the liners molded twice to no avail. There is no reason that the mechanics should be chewing their way through the liners. $800 CAD for 6 painful and grueling ascents. Thanks Scarpa!

Is it Dynafit compatible?

No, This boot comes standard with the Scarpa Ride DIN sole which works with any alpine binding and any Randonee binding, except the Dynafit and G3.

are these good?

are these good?

Responded on

Yes, there are a few reviews on here claiming how much they loved them.

" They drive beefy carving skis with precision and power"

"They perform on the ski area like a dream and the fit is the best i have ever had."

"I am an extremely picky boot shopper, and I think I have found the one for me."

"They provide me with the stiffness and lightness that I am seeking, Love them. Will never give them up."

Always read reviews, worth their weight in gold. (they weigh a ton too!)

Responded on

Depends. It's a low volume AT boot. It doesn't have the forward lean or ramp angle of most performance alpine boots. Cuff height is short. I LOVE this boot! However, it is not for ripping hard groomers on a stiff high performance alpine ski -- you will get rocked.

Too soft for inbounds

In reading all of the reviews of these boots, I was sold on them. As far as a AT boot they are great, fit well with heat moldable liners and are super comfy. As far as on the hill, if you charge and ski a big, stiff ski, then these will be disapointing. Coming off an injury, I went for the AT boot as an everyday, on the hill boot. Have always skied a 100 flex boot before and these just don't cut it. Too short up the leg and the powerstrap is kinda weak. I am about 5'2", weigh 115 and aggressive skier. I tried to ski these with a 170 Kiku and they just don't have the quickness in power transfer due to the softness of the plastic in order to be a lightweight AT boot. Leave these for Touring. Back in my Atomics for the hill.

5'5" 112 lbs, aggressive, 23.5. Yes, WAY WAY too soft in flex to rip on groomed hard pack. It's an AT boot after all! No difficulty here with lateral stiffness though. I LOVE this boot! But don't buy it with the thought of camping out on the front of the boot!

Surprisingly precise

Bought these based on my previous experience with Scarpa T2's. Great fit. They are a bit tight across the instep but my feet still stay warm. They drive beefy carving skis with precision and power. Quite surprising considering they are marketed as an AT boot. The Domina is replacing tried and true Technica Icons that I have been a fan of for the last decade. Have yet to heat mold the Domina, but I have high hopes for even more comfort and performance.

My new comfortable Alpine boot

Bought these boots mainly just for the ski area. They perform on the ski area like a dream and the fit is the best i have ever had. The tour walk mode comes in handy when humping the kids around at the base area.

What is the boot sole length for size 23.5?...

What is the boot sole length for size 23.5? Would that be the same for all Scarpa women's boots?

Best Answer Responded on

I have this boot in a 23.5. 281mm is the length printed on the boot. Keep in mind the 23.5 and 24.0 are the same shell size (a Scarpa thing!). I am a 23.0 in about every alpine boot I have tried. However, I went with the 23.5 in this boot.

My new love

These boots are fantastic and I am happy about each dollar I spent on it. I skied them this past season loads in bounds with carving skies (!) and in powpow on fatties. Friends were suprised on how well I skied in them on the carvers. They provide me with the stiffness and lightness that I am seeking, Love them. Will never give them up.

SCARPA Shell sizes: Are a 22.5 and 23.0...

SCARPA Shell sizes: Are a 22.5 and 23.0 the same shell size OR are the 23.0 and 23.5 the same shell size.

Best Answer Responded on

For Scarpa 22.5 and 23 are the same shell.

Great Boot

I've had trouble with boots in the past, Garmont boots do not fit my feet. I've got a narrow foot, big instep/arch, and a wide toe bed. These boots fit very very well. They are a dream to tour in, and do great on the descent They're soft enough to give when you need it, but stiff enough to charge hard and drive big skis.
I am an extremely picky boot shopper, and I think I have found the one for me.

Best to try on any boots before purchasing them, everyone's feet are different.

These boots come with pretty lame insoles, so best to purchase a higher quality pair such as superfeet.

The soles that come standard on these boots are also not very impressive. If you do a lot of walking on the soles of your boots, I would invest in the more rugged soles.

Holy Cow!

These boots are fantastic! Super comfortable and they RIP!!! The power transfer is seemless and smooth. They tour super comfortably and carve as hard as the alpine boots tehy just replaced. I am stoked!
Also....backcountry rules. So helpful!

Spec Correction

I haven't skiied these yet, but they seem like they are going to be great. I just wanted to update the specs. The liners ARE thermomoldable (intuition) liners.
