Black Diamond Push Ski Boots Reviews:

Positive Reviews:

I can't even begin to tell you how comfortable and amazing these boots are. I run these with an 01 BD binding and BD Amperage setup and these perform beautifully. They have a lot of flex, much more than say the Scarpa T1, but they perform like they are just as stiff and allow me to carve hard as hell. These boots keep my feet incredibly warm, and I have some circulation issues to my toes after getting frost nip years ago. Aside from that, you can not beat a moldable liner, they are just the best. I usually wear a 10.5-11 in most footwear and have these in a 29 mondo.

Johnathan Rambo at Backcountry.com on 12/31/2013

Great Boot! I got these last season as a step up from an old pair of Scarpa T1's w/intuition liner, and I noticed a huge improvement in power and energy transfer. I would recommend them to anyone. They are still supercomfortable even when super clamped down. I recommend getting some better footbeds than what they come with, but I've done this for almost every ski boot I've owned. I don't know what the reviewer who cracked them several times was doing - in all humility, I ski pretty hard, and I have not noticed any unusual wear and tear. Get the Push.

Got a chance to get in these boots and they are definitely a step up from the original. The first thing that you notice is the complete redo of the liner. It works a million times better for warmth, fit, and BOA use than the original. The boa was repositioned and I believe less of a BOA line to coil now too. The cuff flex on this boot matches the bellows flex.
It's a definite good choice for an overall, not needed to really rail boot.

Alexander Romashko at Backcountry.com on 09/09/2011

Great fit! The right stiffness. It took me a lil bit to get used to them from my previous boots (Crispi XP). The BOA system for the inner boot is amazing! My foot felt good and secure before I even tightened the outer boot. I'm going to enjoy these boots for many seasons to come!

I demo'ed these this past weekend and thought the boot itself was great. I wear a 10 shoe, 26.5 dobermann and used the 28.0 Push and feel I was in a size too big. Also, the boot is very wide so I would want something narrower.

Definitely worth the money. It performs in all conditions and terrain.

Negative Reviews:

This boot is super fun to ski on, and they look really cool. they work well for cruising groomers, or steeps. For XtrEmE skiing you might want the custom or the T race. The boot is very warm and the boa system is quite effective! The boot skis fine, but the durability of the plastic is extremely questionable. I have cracked a pair of these in the back to the right and left of the ankle on both boots, and so has my friend. My same friend also cracked the new pair that black diamond supplied him with in an insane fashion. He cracked the front of the duck bill off, and the whole lower inch of the boot started to peel and crack off, and you could stick your fingers inside and touch the liner. That same day he cracked the other boot in the back about 6 inches. His and my boots absolutely blew up!!!! Black diamond did indeed replace the boots for free in about 2 weeks, but it is not all worth the hassle....You might as well buy scarpas and save yourself an extra 2 weeks of skiing instead of waiting for a new pair of boots. T1s or T race.

Neutral Reviews:

Not sure whether there's a manufacturing error, bad batch, or what, but I have cracked two pairs of boots in the exact same fashion. The first pair's shell cracked after three days of skiing, figuring it was an anomaly I returned the boots to Backcountry.com and got a new pair. The second pair of boots cracked in the same spot after a single day of skiing on them. I've attached a picture for reference. This time I've contacted Black Diamond and they've sent me a pair of Customs. I went to a couple of the local tele shops that sell the boot, and they said they've never seen it crack like that, so my best guess is that there was a bad shipment.
It really is a disappointment because the boots feel really good, ski well, and I love the boa closure system. I really was looking forward to taking these backcountry in the adirondacks this season.
Please note that the days I got to ski on these, I was going pretty fast on hardened Vermont snow, so if your skiing style is slower or on powder all the time, these may work great for you. However if you want to be able to carve on a headwall without your boot breaking, these might not do.
Unrelated to this product, both Backcountry.com and Black Diamond's returns/warranty groups were extraordinarily helpful with my problem making it as hassle free as possible. This is the main reason why I will continue to buy their products for life.
