Hoji Pro Tour Ski Boot
Designed for aggressive backcountry skiing, the Men's Hoji Pro Tour Ski Boot balances a light weight with a progressive performance for riders who value downhill riding as much as easy skinning. Its wide last creates an incredibly comfortable fit for skiers who like to layer socks, or women with wider feet, but regardless of your foot shape, the straps, inverse buckles, and various micro-adjustments will ensure a secure fit. Dynafit's remarkable Hoji Lock system that quickly switches the boot from walk mode to ski mode with a quick flip of a switch. Recent updates include a narrower toebox with the TLT inserts set closer to the front in order to maximize the boot's walking efficiency, and it eases your ability to step into tech bindings a lot easier than before.

Returned because they were too small
Returned because I got the wrong size, but they were great otherwise
Designed to tour, designed to ski.
Uniquely game changing.
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
Alright - we may say "game changing" a bit much in the ski world, but honestly - these boots are ultimately different and unique in their design that makes for the perfect combination of tour-ability and ski-ability.
In the ultimate chase for the "holy grail" boot - A touring boot that not only is effortless on the skin track but also crushes on the down, Dynafit has done something special here with Eric Hjorleifson and the Dynafit product team.
The main design element that makes this boot awesomely different is how the cuff and the lower integrate together between tour and ski mode. Using a "floating" third connector which slides up and out of the way while in tour mode - providing 55 degrees range of motion - (and also unique, is that this range of motion is balanced both forward and back, while most boots have either significant range of motion forward, or rear - these have seamless range in both directions). When the tour switch is popped into "ski" mode - the connector interfaces with the lower by grabbing the rear of the lower cuff. This "grabbing" creates a stiff connection, there is limited to no play, and you reap the full value of stiffness from the boot because of it. It's hard to explain in words - i will post a video - but this switch, dubbed "no more need to pull you pants up" - is legit. I am not only excited for this interface for this boot - but to see this type of design fade down into the more rando/race boots.
They are also a bit wide in the last, so they are roomy for people like me with burly wide feet. Super comfy, super stiff, and just rips.
This is the Freetour boot for true tech freeriding. Designed by the man himself - Hoji.
Also - the feeling when you slap this thing into ski mode is soooooo satisfying. I think it's the smoothness and the burliness of the system, but it just works like a dream and it makes me feel happy.
Havent used yet
- Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
Havent had chance to use these boots yet but are super comfy and seem like they will be a great boot for ripping in the backcountry these winter
