    A Nordic boot built for the wilderness.

    The Alpina Alaska Backcountry Boot doesn't mess around when it comes to keeping your feet warm when you're exploring the high country. Built like a mountaineering boot, these NNN BC binding-compatible Nordic boots are made with a burly leather upper, protective rubber rand, and waterproof membrane to put the handle on the worst winter conditions.

    A medium flex is stiff enough to get a little glide going on the flats, without being too stiff to navigate variable terrain and snow in comfort. For warmth, the Alaska Backcountry Boots are insulated with low-bulk Thinsulate synthetic insulation. The footbed is shaped to fit comfortably with the natural shape of your feet, and the soft collar helps to keep your ankle comfortable whether you're side-stepping a steep slope, or moving at a quick clip through rolling valleys and over frozen lakes.

    Great choice for sub-AT terrain

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

    Got these for touring rolling terrain that isn't quite steep enough to AT. They're a perfect blend of stiffness and flex - no break-in pain yet, and I can even brute force parallel turns out of my xc skis in soft snow. They are warm. The fit is large, even with a thicker sock. I generally take size 11 s 45 EURO/ 28.5 Mondo and the 44.0 fits perfectly with a medium weight sock.

    Hey Scott,
    I'm also an 11 in most brands. Running/hiking Salomon, Asics, etc... all 11s.
    In skate ski boots I'm a 45 alpina, 45 madshus and 44-2/3 in Salomons.
    I currently own Madshus Glittertinds in size 44 and while they fit, they're the worst boot ever.
    Based upon what I listed, and the fact that my shoe size is similar to yours, should I order 44s?
    (in Canada so returns are pretty much impossible)


    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    These boots are super warm and comfy. I used them for a full season last year and I wouldn't recommend any other boot. Make sure you get the correct size.

    Blister Bashers

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    I used these boots one time and they shredded my feet (blisters on both feet). Returning these fast.

    Personally, I've found these to be the most comfortable boots I've owned. 18 mile backcountry trips in the mountains of Montana have been handled without a blister in these boots. I have one full season on them, and still as comfy as day one!
