The perfect shoes for your dream job.
You've always wanted to a be a fighter pilot, a professional wrestler, and a rodeo rider, but guess what? Pilots, wrestlers, and cowpokes all want to be skiers; after all, it's the only way they can wear the Scott Voodoo NTN Men's Telemark Boot, which is way better than cowboy boots, knee-high leathers, and whatever shoes pilots wear to stomp on the plane's gas pedal, which is probably how planes work.
With a burly mountain-man flex of 130, powerful high overlap construction, and an adjustable spoiler, you can ski the Voodoo as hard as you want without powering through the front and ending up with your nose resting on your ski. It has a 13-degree lean angle and an asymmetrical bellows design for the proper flex, and Scott also used four separate injections to create the lower shell, making a boot that's laterally stiff so you can power through turns without tipping over or twisting on top of your ski.
Although it's designed for hard chargers, the Voodoo is as capable of racing up a line as it is maching down one, with a ski/walk switch that provides 46 degrees of cuff rotation (more than Scott's burliest alpine touring boot, if you want to brag to your friends), and a fully moldable PWR Tour liner with a stiff Pebax-reinforced tongue that hugs your foot when you're on the way or down. Throw in some micro-adjustable Ergal buckles that won't re-latch themselves after you've unbuckled, and you'll leave all your alpine friends crying in their beers while you're still down for another lap.

- Q & A
Scott Voodoo used to be Garmont Prophet
Couldn't get a size that fits me even though a friend says these are the most comfortable boots she's ever had and is glad she replaced her T1s. But on me the size that fit my toes was too big in the ankle and instep volume. The size that a snugged down the instep and felt right everywhere else was too tight in the front and side of the toe. I like a performance fit but this was too tight and too much pain, either that or too big for the heel and everywhere else. I have a low volume pretty ordinary foot and usually can wear most any boot in my size. This is the first time I've had a boot I can't get the right fit in any size.
Be aware this boot has strong forward lean that does not straighten up even in walk mode. In fact, I couldn't feel any difference in shaft angle in walk mode. If you look closely, the shaft pivot is higher and to the rear compared to the Scarpa cuff pivot location, so no surprise pivoting has less effect on the shaft angle.
These boots are decently light and all the walk mode hardware is bolt on so, if you find it doesn't help like I did, you can remove it with an allen key (and re-install it easily if you change your mind). Saves you 100g per boot because it's all steel.

These are the most comfortable boots I own. They are pretty stiff and also relatively lightweight. I have noticed that after skiing on them for about 80 days, the plastic in the front (where the boot goes into the toe piece of the binding) of the boot is starting to wear away- which isn't a big deal, and I've noticed that on other telemark boots too. Also, I think that the bellows in Scarpa boots flex a bit smoother- but it's also not a big deal.
Also, the "2nd heel" (where the binding clips into the boot) broke once (I probably whacked it on something by accident), but Scott (the boot manufacturer) sent me a replacement piece right away- and it was very easy to replace- just unscrew it and put the new one on.
Overall, I am very satisfied, and the boot is probably even better now that it has tech fittings.

Scott's beefiest telemark boot. Unprecedented lateral stiffness works harmoniously with a smooth, progressive forward flex. 2017 Backcountry Magazine Gear Guide Select product.
What is the last of the boot? Do these run true to size?
Hi James, The last width on these is going to be 100mm and I would say that they run pretty true to size. If you are generally a 26.5 I would go 26.5 in these as well. Shell sizes break on the half size - 26 and 26.5 are the same shell size. If you have any other questions, please feel free to reach out to me directly.

- The heel tech insert suggests I could use these with dynafiddle AT bindings, how does that work?
-I currently ski in a Technica Zero G size 24.5, what size would that translate into in the Voodoo/Minerva?
