No love for Dalbello boots? - Page 3

post #61 of 64

I am a 58 year old advanced skier (sans the jumping stuff).  Can you tell me which Dalbello model I should look for? Not looking of cheap. Thanks.

Welcome to Epic.

Before discussing any particular model, may I suggest that you go to a local shop and have a knowledgeable boot fitter determine if that brand is compatible with the shape of your feet. That is far more important than whatever iteration you may select.

I say this from personal experience. I owned a pair of Dalbello Kryptons a few years back. I went through the stock liner and a couple of aftermarket lines as well (intuition) but could not make them fit. My feet are low volume (bony) and rather narrow. The boot last of the Kryptons favored a wider hoof and was just not right for me. There was nothing, in the end, that I could do about it except to part company. Found my way to a pair of Nordica Doberman's that fit perfectly right out of the box.

Simply put, while boots have different designs and features, fundamentally, it is all about the fit. Get a boot that has the right dimensions for your size and foot configuration and volume and you will be a happy man.

May I also suggest that you provide more details regarding your experience, expectations and terrain for more pointed advice.

Happy trails.

To add to the other positive D posts - I had the Krypton Cross with the silver ID liner and after 3 seasons replaced them with the Krypton Pro  with the gold ID liner. For me - excellent fit allowing them to remain fully buckled from day start to day end and, in addition, the warmest ski boot I have owned. They worked well both in the bumps, icy steeps and on groomer zoomers.


As said, there are many models and if your foot is a good match, an excellent boot. I first learned about this boot on this forum via Phil P posts for which I remain grateful.

Most big ski industry companies will have nothing to do with consumers--you almost always have to go through a dealer. (It helps if you bought the boots from a shop and not online.)
