Nick Franchiwrote a review of Dalbello Sports Il Moro T-Comp I.D. Ski Boot - Men's on November 10, 2014
Familiarity: I've used it several times
Firstly I would like to preface that I regrettably own the 2014 II MOROS boots. This years version seems to have fixed the main issue I have with the boots, the buckles!
I purchased these boots after having Krypton Pro's for years. I'm not sure if I was high on toxic material or just straight up drunk dialed Backcountry.com to purchase these worthless, over designed hunks of plastic. These boots are junk! The buckle design was clearly designed just to look complicated. Whoever designed the buckle system deserves a cookie, a really stale, crusty, sitting under my couch 5 year old cookie. The problem with the top buckle is that it goes against rudimentary laws of physics. It's impossible to buckle the top buckle in the back notch without using two hands. There just is no leverage. I sat with my mouth open and my eyes in defeated slumber, asking myself ..."Nick are you high? Did you develop some muscle disease that prohibits your from being able to tighten a buckle on a boot?.... I was trying to convince myself that I was missing something with this boot. Hell I even broke out the handbook, a handbook for a boot! Seriously, nothing, the boot was just designed like this on purpose. Needless to say I stopped using these boots due to the fact it was near impossible to tighten them on the fly. I would recommend this boot to body builders and people with double jointed wrists, I would also recommend it to someone that has no feet, that way they can just throw them away. I'm sad that BC won't return this item, the customer service as BC has really gone down hill. I will bite the bullet on these boots, however I will be purchasing my higher end gear at REI if I need a better return policy.
