The Dalbello Women's Krypton KR 2 Kryzma I.D. Ski Boot really does have it all with its heat-moldable I.D. Thermo Pro Lady liner, 115 flex index, 98mm last, women-specific fit, and customizable features. Designed for ladies who don't give a second thought to straightlining through a tight chute, maneuvering down steep, techy terrain, or sending big mountain lines, the Krypton KR 2 comes with medium- and stiff-flex interchangeable tongues to custom fit your flex to your style of skiing. Add to that women-specific cuff, liner, and last, and this boot is undeniably yours. Imagine how much harder you'll rip in a boot this customizable.
The KR 2 Kryzma uses an innovative Cabrio design architecture that combines a boot shell/boot cuff assembly with an external Kinetic Response shell tongue closure. As a result, this design provides rigid lateral support for dynamic power-to-ski energy transfer with a comfortable, smooth flex, superior shock absorption, and a convenient way to put on and take off the KR 2 Kryzma. Dalbello's Contour 4 shell fit technology features relief contours molded into the inside lower shell at the ankle, heel, 5th metatarsal, and navicular points to provide a close and accurate fit and minimize the need for shell modifications.
The top model in the Krypton Lady Series, the Krypton Kryzma has been developed for top level, aggressive and accomplished expert freeride skiers and competitors seeking a close and precise fit with powerful and responsive energy transfer. Interchangeable tongues & footboards make this the most versatile and adjustable Krypton model.
All men’s and women’s Krypton models feature new shell and innerboot last shapes featuring Contour 4 (C4) Fit Concept for improved fit, function, performance, and control.

For ladies with Cinderella style footsies, here is some information.
I have a street shoe size 6.0-6.5 and don't enjoy the annual struggle to find performance fitting ski boots. Many companies won't manufacture a 22-22.5 so the options are LIMITED.
I tried a 22.5 in the Rossignol AllTrack Pro 110 Ski Boot, which was SIGNIFICANTLY larger than the 22.5 in this Kryzma model. Like....HUGE difference.
I have a fairly narrow forefoot with a flat arch, these boots are CRAZY tight in the 22.5, but it feels good. Getting them fixed up by a trusted bootfitter here in Salt Lake City, Inkline! They actually wanted to put me in a 21.0, (kids) - but that wasn't an option since these were provided to me to review.
The Intuition liners are a TOTAL plus, really nice to dial in the fit.
These boots are also silly lightweight I wasn't really expecting them to be so featherweight, so this was a pleasant surprise. I honestly feel like I could really cut a rug in these things. This will come in handy for impromptu post-ski dance parties. The appearance of the boots is also pleasing. If Catwoman skied, she would obviously wear these boots. This is the sleek, high-performance version of a sky-high, sexy black stiletto heel. You could probably break some hearts with these boots. MEEEOW.
Will update this review once I've skied on them a few weeks. AMAZING what a difference custom insoles made to the fit on these. Obviously bootwork is expensive, but if you demand performance, it's worth it. The insoles feel like baby clouds on my feet - SO excited to give these girls a go.
The best ski boot ever! Great fit, performance everything you want in a ski boot.
