After a complete season of 60plus days in these boots, i have to say they were excellent...BUT - the toe and heel lugs and the pebax compound whilst soft and incredibly light, is much softer than other boots. If the lugs were replaceable with soles, this wouldn't be a problem, but by the seasons end, this part of boot was so battered, chipped and dented the bindings needed constant attention to ensure retention tot he point were the boots are now likely to be thrown out.... If I were scarpa, i'd offer these boots with interchangeable lugs and soles, as the remainder of the boots are in great shape...take one star off...but overall terrific boot.
__________(Earlier review) __________
Just skied these for 19 days straight in Japan (on armada jj's with jester pro bindings), from groomers to side country to skinning thru the alps ...this boot fit like a glove. Custom footbeds but no other mods needed... I have a wide last foot, these didn't pinch or squash any digits! I would say if u have a high arch and top of the foot, these may cause pressure points. over the 19 days, these have stretched and formed to my foot and calf area brilliantly . The are great for touring (used on k2 coombacks with marker dukes) , so light and warm. You can't beat intuition liners..hands down the best by a mile...highly recommend. Flex is probably not as high as suggested, compared to nordica speed machines 130's , but way more pliable boot for all skiing needs.
Unbelievable boot. Light, pretty stiff and enough capacity to finetune. I'm 6'2, 230lbs and an aggressive expert skier running a pair of Volkl AC50 177's and Atomic Bent Chetler 192cm. I've got a long skinny foot with little arch and slim archilles/calves, and these fit like a glove straight out of the box. Thought I would need custom footbeds but haven't felt the need so far. Only minor gripe is that the second buckle up is not easy to close with the metal flap under the buckle getting caught on the bail side of the buckle as they come together (probably doesn't describe it that well sorry). Intuition liner looks like it wouldn't be very comfortable, until you put your foot in - as I said, like a glove. Whether it be carving, cruising or steeps, I can't fault this boot at all. Also, the walk mode is particularly useful for kid wrangling on the learners slopes and car park. My previous boots were Technica TNT Carbons and these Scarpas leave them for dead in terms of the comfort v performance balance, for me at least.
