Great--if you don't mind a big blister
What did Scarpa do with the heal design of their liner? I get blisters on the inside of my heal after about 4 miles travel because of the protruding padding in the liner. Last time, I almost got by without a blister, but when I pulled the boot off, whalla a great big missing area of skin on my heal. And the snow right now is perfect. I've had all of the the Scarpa T series, and this is the first time I've had such trouble with heal blisters. What are the options for a light weight plastic boot? Are there any at all now? Do I need to go up to a T-2 with my Madshus touring skis to avoid heal blisters? Man I sure hope Scarpa engineers are working on this.

T4's are great, pleased overall
Dunno what all the complaining about fit and liners is about, mine fit great, as great and comfortable as a touring boot can be. Had my non intuition liners formed a bit, added green superfeet, and 3 years later no complaints. As comfy as a plastic boot could be. I think people thresholds for accepting a certain amount of break in and occasional discomfort are lower than of their resistance to the mighty keyboard. 6 pairs in my friend family and nobody really talks about their feet. Thats a good sign in my book. Any plastic boot regardless of liners, including mountain boots, require a certain level of your foot conforming to them and not the other way around, as with normal walking footwear, or even climbing shoes. They dont give, your foot does the giving. Comfy, warm, easy to use with gloves on, easy to remove liners, durable, nottoo heavy for what they are. Overall worthwhile purchase, would replace with another pair when the time comes.

T4's are torture chambers for your feet
The new Intuition liners in the T4's have several design defects that will rub the skin right off your feet at the inside of the heel. Our group bought 4 pairs, had them all heat fitted by a professional boot fitter and every one of us suffered severe heel pain, blisters and skin loss. Two other had bad shin pain. The rigid inside ridge in the heel cup is unforgiving and VERY painful. And the piping on the edges of the tongue curl and fold inward causing pain on your shin between your ankles. If you have a strictly alpine skiing background and are used to stiff painful, uncomfortable boots these might work for you but if you want some flex and comfort for backcountry skiing, these are not the boots for you.

Brutal, not leaving me with much confidence that these T4's might be an ok substitute for the Garmont / Scott Excursion, now discontinued......What's going on!!?

rhc105966560-0, they are what they are. I just found a few old used ones laying around a local shop and one was so awful, I couldn't stand with them on in the store, the other pair however were just dandy but still had the noticeable chafing noted here. I intend to modify the boot to suit my preference through heat molding, liner modification and boot reconstruction. XCD is just in the space these days where if you want anything other than what scraps you get, you are going to have to get down and dirty and do the work yourself. Pay off though is flying past AT folk on the flats and having a groovy time on those mild descents. Pics coming at some point.
