Born in a top-secret lab hidden deep in the Italian Alps, the Il Moro T I.D. Ski Boot was developed in collaboration with Dalbello's pro team riders to give top athletes the performance they need to shred pants-wetting lines and scare the crap out of themselves in the park. Unfortunately it doesn't come with a diaper, but it's got everything else you need to take your game to the next level.
Everything the Il Moro does is made possible by its three-piece Cabrio Design Architecture. By combing a stiff PU shell and cuff with a shock-absorbing polyamide tongue, Dalbello was able to give the Il Moro a smooth, progressive flex with that has plenty of backbone, so you can drive your skis hard without overpowering your boots. The progressive flex also works with a full-length Landing Gear anti-shock footbed to take the pain out of hard landings and minimize shin bang.
Like a symphony, the Il Moro truly works because all its parts are operating in concert. The Dynalink Rearfoot Retention System, for example, uses an instep buckle that's linked to the medial (inside) ankle of the shell, rather than to the cuff, as is traditional. This provides bomber heel hold without interfering with the flex of the upper boot, since the instep closure isn't attached to the cuff. It also prevents distortion during flexion, so you never develop sloppy spots when consequences are high. There's also an inverted bottom buckle, which closes on top of the shell to force the foot down into the bootboard, increasing control and power transmission.
Since the cuff offers such a carefully-crafted flex, it has a Double-Wide Park Trekker Cuff Buckle, which ratchets an extra-large plate down over the top of the cuff to prevent any loosening around the upper ankle. The heat-moldable wrap-style I.D. Thermo IL Moro Liner is designed to work with the Trekker Buckle to secure the leg with 360-degree support, unlike traditional tongue-style liners that tend to have dead spots when flexed in certain directions. In addition to the liner, the Il Moro offers full customization in the form of twin canting and forward lean adjustments, so you can dial in the fit to insane degrees. The only drawback is you won't have any more excuses when you case a jump or ragdoll down your line.

I have been using the IL Moros for 3 season now and i do not see myself switching in the near future. They are great supportive boots that are perfect for jumps, rails, halfpipe, powder, or whataver you like. I have not had any pain or shin bang ever since i started to use them, the only weakness would be if you have a wider foot. these definitely fit a more narrow footed skier.
All around amazing boots. I've used them 8-10 times and they already feel broken in and custom fit to my feet. These look even better in person. No shinbang, easy adjustment with the buckles, and the cuff buckle makes hiking and walking in these boots extremely easy without buckle flopping around. Can't go wrong with these.
I've been ripping around on these for a few seasons and they're all around awesome boots. No shinbang, easy adjustment with the buckles, and they've made it through some of my gnarly wipeouts. Would highly recommend to any skier looking for big mountain lines to taking laps in the park
