ed.3623981wrote a review of Alpina BC 1550 Backcountry Boot on March 13, 2011
I have used a pair for 2 winters now, approx 50 days of use.
Pros: Good support
Easy to lace on
Sole has not cracked (yet)
Cons: not even water resistant, never mind water proof. Feet are wet after about 15 min of skiing through wet snow.
Cold - not much insulation. Too narrow for a heavy sock.
Too narrow, one width does not fit all. Lots of abrasion on toes and ankles.
Eyelet pulled out 2nd day of use.
