Pros: They fit my feet after having them heated.
Cons: The soles are not flat and I am getting the run around from Tecnica for a warranty replacement.
Has anyone else had a problem like this where the boot soles are not flat? I have been a skier for over 40 years and this is the 6th pair of Tecnica boots I have owned and none of them were twisted and not flat. It appears to me that they were twisted out of the mold. We all know that ski boot plastic has memory; that is why you buckle your boots after you take them off so they will hold that nice curved shape. My husband in his wisdom suggested I ski on them and see if they flattened out in the bindings.
They seemed to but when I set them on the shelf in our downstairs for 3 days they twisted back to the same state as they were when I took them out of the box. I made the mistake of using them again and experienced a binding release failure. What a mess and I am not happy. Any one have any ideas on this? Thanks in advance.
Today is January 13th and I am making progress with the warranty process after involving three men.
I will keep you posted on how this develops.
Today is January 24th there should be a credit on my account today for the purchase price. The National, state and store reps got it together and I am getting my money back. I will let you know when it actually happens. I did order another pair of boots from another company, they were twisted and not flat out of the box also. (Am I cursed?) I mailed them right back. What is up with this?? Any one have any idea? It is a month tomorrow and my pulled groin muscle is still painful from the binding release failure which I believe is directly connected to the defective boots!
Today is Jan 29th, I ordered one more pair of boots took them out of the box and they have twisted soles! Are ski boot companies dumping their defective merchandise over the internet web sales sites??
It sure looks this way to me after 3 (yes three) pairs of boots are all defective!!
Today is Feb. 12th and I have a full credit from Tecnica for the defective Dragon 90's , case closed.
I have been skiing on my old Tecnica Flames, and will be keeping them until I find flat sole boots!
