New boots, any recommendations?

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 

I am in the process of purchasing new boots.  I ski mostly steeps.  Any recommendations on new boots?  I prefer something that comes up a little higher on the calf.  Looking for something with a max price of $600.  Any advice would be appreciated.  Thanks in advance.

i think the boot fitters could use a little more information about you, your skiing style, how often you ski, where you ski, both the areas and the type of runs, what are your goals and aspirations as a skier, what is your current set-up, etc, etc, etc. or you can stop the process now and just buy the red ones.

Thanks for the advice.  New to this site, but have already learned a ton by reading posts.  As far as my information goes, I basically ski 5 to 10 times per year.  I get out West a few times a winter and then Midwest "skiing" a handful of times as well.  I currently have Volkl 5 stars and ski more GS style.  I was thinking about getting a pair of slalom skis though and really fine tuning my technique.  Are there any boots that would be versatile to both styles?  I prefer skiing steeps and do not hit the bumps or terrain parks very often at all.  Any advice would be appreciated.  Red ones do sound good.  :)  Thank you in advance.
