I bought a pair of T4's recently and have a problem with pressure on my left ankle bone. It actually bruised the area. Gave it a week off and had the same problem today within a few minutes. If I push the tongue pad to the right it feels better until it works it way back. Pretty painful.
Any thoughts??

Replace the liner with something from Intuition, preferably a wrap-around model. They're thermo-moldable, and might alleviate your pain problem.

Responded on

I had this problem too. It seems to have been alleviated by the boots being broken in. Also, I use a added strap around the top of the boot which GREATLY increases the stiffness of the boot and provides support. This strapping takes the stress off of the ankle and front of my foot.
Though It may be a sizing issue.

These are my everyday go-to touring boot

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I love these boots. I have had a pair of T-3's for years, and was sad when Scarpa quit making them. But then they came out with the T-4 and I am smiling again. I plan on buying a pair even though I don't need them, just because I worry that Scarpa will quit making them. I used to use them at resorts but have gone to T-2's for resort skiing most of the time, due to going to wider skis when lift skiing. But for backcountry use where you are going to put in some miles AND carve some turns, they rock. I use them with Madshus Annums (100mm wide) and Voile Switchbacks, and I go everywhere I want to go. Trails, trees, gullies, glades. No problem putting in 15 miles and a couple of thousand vert, and then doing it again the next day. I wouldn't dream of doing that in a pair of T-2s. If all you do is skin up and ski down, you might prefer more powerful boots. But if you like to actually lose sight of your car, these boots will get you away from it all and bring you back with a smile on your face.

Hell yea

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

These boots far exceeded my expectations. Very comfortable for long days touring, the walk mode has great range of motion. They also perform really well on the down! They cant be beat by any boot in their class!

Much more control over a softer BC boot!

  • Gender: Male
  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

I run the Madshus Epoch, 3-pin cable and a Fischer bcx 675, which I really like for mostly touring, and rolling hills, etc. If my intent is to go up, then down, I'll use the T4. Fit is nice, warmth is OK, but they really drive the Epochs in choppy and variable snow. Good boot, but not perfect. May look at replacing the liner with an Intuition liner.

I am wondering about the sizing of these boots. I wear a 28.5 in the Scarpa T2X with the wrap around them liners and they are a good performance fit. I would like the T4 for more general touring so perhaps a more comfy fit would be good. I am thinking a 29 in the T4? My street shoe size is an 11

Responded on

You may be a 28.5 in this boot, too. I'm an 11.5, and I ended up with the 29.0. After a few wears, the liner will slightly shape to your foot.

Responded on

The 28.5 and 29 use the same plastic outer shell, so you there isn't a huge difference--the 29 jsut uses a thinner liner in the same shell. I tend to prefer a looser fit for touring. My resort boots are 29.5 and a tight performance fit, but my touring boots are 30.5, a whole shell size bigger. If 28.5 is a performance fit, I doubt that 29 is going to feel too big for touring. You might even like 29.5 for touring--fit them like heavy hiking boots for touring to avoid heel blisters. If you go with the 29 and they feel loose, you can probably fix that with socks and insoles.

Are these boots powerful enough for occasional resort usage with a voile cbr binding?

Responded on

Rob,
really hard to comment on this as everyone has his own preference. I would say no though 2 buckles and beingpretty soft it is made more for a long range Backcountry boot. I would look at the T2 Eco instead.

Responded on

A local guy I propsed the same question to pulled out an old set up he started out on. Leather boots a minimal binding. He said he had 10 plus happy years on that set up. He's known for knowing his s%$t.

Responded on

Short answer, yes. I've skied 90% at resorts on T3's (now T4's) for over 10 years. I have worn holes through the bellows, but still use them exclusively. I learned on leather boots with skinny, long, straight skis. So to me the T3 is plenty of boot for all conditions. I use them with Rossignol Pit Bull bindings and 10+ year old Rossignol Attaques 191cm. (100, 67, 88). When I bought the skis they were about as wide as they were making them. I have no problem getting them on edge with the T3's. But with today's wide boards a bigger boot is likely necessary. IMO, lighter set ups (small boots, skinny skis) are more fun because good techniques is necessary and you ski the the skis, the skis don't ski you. If that makes sense.

Responded on

They're fine with skis up to 100mm wide. I use them with K2 Heli Stinx at the resort on hard pack days. If you go with much wider skis they don't have the edging power for hard pack, but they are fun with lighter narrower skis. The CRB bindings are pretty neutral, so these soft boots with CRB's would require a bit more technique and wouldn't let you be very aggressive. More active bindings would probably be better for resort skiing.

I got a pair of these and the plan is to set up with tele bindings and madhaus annum type ski. I started thinking that I have a pair of BD Havocs 08 and that pos. i could put a tele binding on them for another fun toy. Anyone think these will be enough to push the BD's around?

Best Answer Responded on

That is personal preference. I think you can do anything you want of you put your mind to it . Really though these are a bit soft so it may be a bit of a squirly ride on the havocs.

Responded on

I use these boots with my annums and it's a perfect match. You can push around up to about 100mm tip width with these boots just fine, but much wider than that they will feel underpowered unless you are in powder.

Day 1 pretty happy. took em for a test drive on a wider pair of waxless karhus with 3 pin set up. Pretty nice feel . I wasn't quite ripping it but could feel the control gap between a regular BC touring type boot and an AT set up. I will be setting up an old pair of BD havocs with a beefier binding for the in between days . We'll see.Warm but not overly. Not suggested for flat or rolling hill days may be a bit of overkill.

Responded on

I have Madshus Annums (about 100mm wide in the tip) with Voile Switchbacks and T4's. Sweeeeet setup for mountain touring. If you go with much wider skis these boots will be a bit underpowered, but if you like being able to both put in some miles and come down some steeps, these boots answer the call.
