Once again I follow with incredulous amusement the debate among consumers who express a specific desire for a product and the industry "experts" who refuse to acknowledge the desires of their consumers. Of course, I am referring to the disdain among those "in the know" toward anyone who has experienced the joy of skiing aggressively all day in varying terrain with pain free rear entry boots. The absence of foot pain makes a hugh difference in performance. Pain alters stance, distracts one's attention, and leads to tentative skiing - all of which diminish performance.
And, as anyone who has walked into a bar apes ski with ski boots can attest, rear entry boots attract attention. They are so out of style, they are almost fashionable again. I can them my "chick magnet ski slippers".
You manufacturers, won't you make some more for us?
