- Q & A
Not a great fit
- Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
Purchased the previous year's model of these boots. The size chart was a bit baffling but I went with a 41, which was a half size down from what the size chart indicated I'd need, but is my typical Euro size in many shoes and boots I've owned and I have a wide/high volume foot so its not unusual for me to size up a bit. The foot of the boot was huge, easily 1 or 2 sizes too big and I felt like I'd never be able to cinch the laces down tight enough to keep my foot from slopping around, but the outer cuff was so tight I could just barely zip it over a my sock, and I could tell the stress on the (not very beefy) zipper would have caused it to fail shortly. The addition of the pull loop in the back of these boots seems like a smart upgrade - the pair I ordered didn't have it and I could tell getting the boots on was going to be a PITA without something like that.
I had similar cuff fit issues with the Fischer boot when I tried them on in store. I ski and bike every day and don't eat salad for lunch every day and have muscular calves to show for it - apparently this is not something that gear manufacturers take into consideration when designing their products as I've run into this issue in clothing and boots many times.
On the plus side they seemed like they would offer good lateral ankle support and this model doesn't have the "girly" purple design flourishes that were on the pair I purchased (I got them at a steep discount so was willing to live with advertising my gender through purple paisley ski boots). I snapped them into my skis in the living room just to be certain the sizing was as off as I thought - no way. Returned them within an hour of receiving them. I guess I'll be shelling out for one of the Alpina models, or switching back to 75mm bindings.
Bottom line if these fit they would probably be a good all-around light duty, off trail boot. I wouldn't have kept them if I was searching for true backcountry tour, regardless of fit, but for noodling around back of the house and on local rail trails they would have been fine.
