Black Diamond Swift Alpine Touring Boot -

Black Diamond's Swift Alpine Touring Boot is one of the lightest and most powerful AT boots a woman could take into the backcountry. Pivoting cuff technology offers a massive 40 degrees of buttery-smooth cuff flex in walk mode (buttery-smooth and resistance free), and the freeride-boot-meets-touring-boot chassis provides all the responsiveness and power you need in ski mode. Really, the comfort of a boot boils down to fit, so Black Diamond's engineers gave this little beauty a women-specific liner that's sculpted in the calves and Achilles area. Take on casual dawn patrols in Big Cottonwood's trees or scramble through rocky ascents off Mount Superior with equal ease.


  • Anti-microbial liner fabric with smooth finish for easy entry/exit


  • Efficient Fit AT Light liner is stiff and lightweight, designed specifically for touring
  • Women-specific fit features a lower and more voluminous cuff with a liner that has a thinner and sculpted adjustable calf spoiler, increased boot ramp angle, and a slightly narrower Achilles area
  • Truelasted liner fits your foot right out of the box or it can be easily thermomolded for a truly custom fit
  • Zero-compaction Strobel liner for consistent fit


  • Liner also features an antimicrobial treatment to stop funky odors, a smooth interior finish so it's easy to slide your foot inside, and a multi-density Achilles pad insert


  • Triax pivot frame is a touring-focused frame design that offers alpine-style power transfer and smooth, natural striding motion when you're touring


  • Buckle closeout dents have a hooked shape that locks the QuickWire buckles securely in place once the buckle is flipped down

Traction and Grip:

  • Rubber outsole has a rockered shape that dramatically increases traction and allows for the most natural foot roll when you're hiking or bootpacking


  • Hook-and-Loop Fastener Power Strap


  • Pivoting cuff locks into the edge of the instep cuff in ski mode, pressuring against the boot shell for stiffness and power
  • V-shaped last has a 103mm toebox to give your toes room to move and allow ample circulation for warmth
  • Tech inserts give you the option to use this boot with Tech-style touring binders
  • In walk mode, the pivoting cuff naturally slides up and out of the way of your instep buckle to allow the boot to flex further forward
  • Pivoting cuff design offers resistance-free movement in tour mode so you get a whopping 40-degree range of motion with each step: 20degrees back and 20 degrees forward
  • 100-rated flex index provides enough stiffness to precisely control your skis and just enough forgiveness to make long days of touring easier on your foot
  • Three-buckle design keeps your foot secure and ensures power transfer when skiing without hampering the free-flexing design of the boot when you're in tour mode
  • 103 mm forefoot width
  • Liner secures with the Boa closure system that you can tighten or loosen with the spin of a dial

Savor the turns you've earned with the Black Diamond Swift. A 3-buckle alpine touring backcountry boot with 4-buckle performance, the Swift was built for lightweight touring without sacrificing downhill performance. The boot's rockered rubber outsole will keep you stable with the best grip on rocky scrambles or technical routes, while the alpine overlap shell construction makes for smooth, efficient power transmission on the way down.

New Women's Efficient Fit AT Light Liner with 1:1 Boa closure system, improved fit and articulating zones for ultimate touring comfort, plus an improved power strap makes for an all-day comfortable, warm fit. Enjoy your ascents with 40 degrees of resistance-free touring motion and locking QuickWire cuff buckles. Integrated tech inserts give you the option for tech bindings or AT bindings.

Evo (2013)

The new and improved liner features a 1:1 Boa® closure system that weighs less but tightens in a fraction of the time.

Positive Reviews:

I bought these as a gift, but I use the men's version of the same boot and can say that they're incredibly well designed. They're nice and light, stiff enough to run wide, long skis, and plenty warm. They run on the wide side, and give you plenty of room to wiggle toes, so you don't freeze off digits in cold temps.

I have enjoyed these boots though I wish there was another buckle to keep my heel down better when going downhill. I am working with some inserts to see if that will give better performance. I love how light they are & there is more support than the scarpas.

Negative Reviews:

I got a great price and merchandise was shipped promptly. However I was disappointed to find both boots arrived with both Boa systems damaged beyond repair. It was pretty obvious that the boots had been returned from a previous buyer. Backcountry customer service was polite and quick to respond, however sold out and apparently unable to replace my liners:(. Boots by the way r very comfortable.

These were great on the ascent, but killer when I switched to ski mode. Something about the tongue created terrible, terrible hot spots on my shins. So bad I could only ski about 200' before I'd have to stop from the pain. Not the boot for me.

Neutral Reviews:

I traded in a pair of slightly-too-big Dynafits for this boot. Sometimes I wish I had stuck with the Dynafits. First off, these run small in length but not width. I thought the liners would eventually pack out, but they didn't, and I had to remove the insoles (which are oddly shaped and pinch the bridge of my foot) to keep my toes from going completely numb. I don't care much for the BOA system--it seems like a fancy frill that's not entirely necessary. Also, I had to build up a whole new set of touring callouses on my achilles, as the liners have a funky "bump" around the heels. The buckles are not as easy to operate in deep snow or with gloves on. Good news though: these are truly super light for the price range, and the walk mode is significantly more flexible than in other boots. However, I don't think I'll hang onto these for too long. You will DEFINITELY want to visit a store and try these on first, and if they seem even a little tight, go up a half size.
