FS: Nordica Dobermann Pro EDT 130 - 27.0/8uk

post #1 of 29
Thread Starter 

I ordered these looking for a more precise fit and more power. I got both! However, against my better judgment, I ordered them in a 27 and I simply have too much length in them. That is the ONLY reason I'm selling them. I'll be ordering another pair in a smaller size as soon as these are sold to you! 

I have skied on them for only 7 days - they're about as new as used gets! These have no boot work done to them (no grinding, punching, or reforming at all). Some VERY minor scuffing on the inner side per usual.

 

Asking 347. Accepting offers, negotiations, and trades (for either dobermann pro edt 130's in a 26.5, or nordica hr pro 105 w's in a 22.5).

Nordica Says: 

"The NORDICA DOBERMANN ski boot collection has been tested and developed by racers. It's engineered to put ski racers on the podium and has been doing just that for the past 9 years. The all new DOBERMANN collection has been completely redesigned from the ground up and perfected in all areas, to raise the performance bar once again. The NEW DOBERMANN EDT (efficient dynamic technology) provides enhanced efficiency of the boot structure, maximizes energy, transmission increased, and torsional rigidity. Simply put less energy more POWER. If the WC version is too much bark, it's successors, the DOBERMANN PRO 130 model comes from the same aggressive pedigree. Don't get caught with an outdated knock off! Flex: 130 (120 with single rear cuff fixation), 43mm heel height, performance fit liner, 98mm last width, 45mm velcro strap."

 

 

 

  • Medium-Narrow Last Width - 98mm
  • Flex - 130/120
  • Performance Fit Liner
  • Performance Fit Pro Footbed
  • Buckles - Integrated Profile 4 Micro Alu + 2 servo-lock on cuff
  • Quick-Set Rear Spoiler
  • 45mm Power Strap

nice boot, good price.  This boot skis really well.

AA,

What size shoes do you normally wear? I believe  you stated the boot is too big, I wear an 11.5 shoe with a narrow fit. Any thoughts of if it would work for me.

^ i actually wear an 11.5/12 shoe... but i also downsize my boots fairly significantly... the last would likely work well for your narrow feet... i can't quite speak for the length without actually measuring you up and everything...

 

if you were to find a supercharger blower and do a shell fit (same shell) that would tell you how they'd fit...

 

 

paul - thanks!!

I measure a size 12 but wear a size 11.5 street shoe.  I am in the 27 shell with a bit of grinding.  I have a flat and low forefoot that spreads with pressure.  So I have great footbeds which make the fit perfect in the front half of the boot.  My heal is narrow and the boot works well there.

 

It still isn't the right boot for me though.  My instep and the volume of the foot in that area just don't provide enough contact to leverage the boot.  Will be going back in fall for more tweeks.

 

These are great boots though - if they fit.

FYI I wear a 10.5/11 shoe and have these boots in a 9 US (so a 27.5 mondopoint), so for an 11.5 these might be a bit snug but I think they are the best boots on the market for any non-bump skiing bar none. Hopefully they fit.

post #10 of 29

A quick thanks to Apexamimal (who was very responsive to my questions), Paul Jones and Philcski for sharing info about fitting into the Dobermans. AA and I measured and exchanged foot lengths, and, I'm about a 1/2 inch longer....I'm not going to pursue a purchase.

 

Great boot for someone.

on another, simlar note:

 

anyone have a good deal for me on a pair of dobermann pro 130's in a 26.5?

 

thanks!

post #24 of 29

Not to hijack this thread, but...  May I politely suggest going to a good bootfitter instead of buying and selling boots on the internet... Dobie 130 is a precision boot that cries for a close fit.  Hell, on that boot some customization is almost a requirement....  It looks like you already got a good deal on the 27.0, and had to sell it, which made it not a  very good deal in retrospect... 

post #25 of 29

that could be said of all on line boot sales.  But if you know that you are a 27 shell for the 130, this is a good price as long as you understand the cost of fitting which will be needed.

i appreciate the advice... i sold the 27s and got a pair of 26's for a final price of about 75 out of pocket... 

 

i did fit the 27s in a store, and had been fairly pleased with the two finger shell fit up to then, but all my other boots have been softer and wider up to then too... two finger in these boots was simply too much... and that's not something i would've known prior to skiing on them for several days...

 

the 26's just arrived and i'm down to a good single finger shell fit which i'm pleased by... the width is still good... i may grind just a touch in my left boot for my big toe, but nothing substantial...

2-finger shell fit is just plain wrong for a Dobermann 130.  You don't have to ski the boot to know that this is too much room in a precision boot....

thanks for weighing in?

 

as i already said, i've figured that out and moved on with little money out of pocket...

 

so i would hope we would all move on as well.

Good for you.  Yes, lets move on.  Cheers for consumer education.  beercheer.gif
