Best new/vintage ski boots for 70's/80's vintage skis?

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 

Hi Guys.  I have finally amassed a decent collection of vintage skis that I want to use with comfortable boots.  I am not a terribly aggressive skier, nor a leisurely one. I am inclined to buy a nice fitting vintage pair of boots, but would also be happy with a new or newer pair.  Thanks so much if you can suggest anything :)

Here are two of my newest additions!

Why not a pair of Full Tilts, retro style but newer materials and you can even get them with Intuition liners?

http://fulltiltboots.com/ski-boots?boot-width=99mm&category=boots&gender=guys  Probably the Classic, pretty much identical to the Raichle Flexxons, in fact it is the same molds and parts are interchangeable IIRC.

New...As mentioned Full Tilts and I would say the "Classic" red/black which is a homage to the 1985 Flexon Comp. If you are going vintage in the boot, I would say a Salomon SX91/92 which still ski very well as a rear entry.

Thanks, Phil!  I prefer a vintage set so I'll look around for these :)

I'll second the Sollie SX92E's

Some like(d) them, some don't. I really like them with 80's-90's skis.

The SX91E's would be a close second...

+1 on the retro Langes, any of them.  I have a pair that I still ski sometimes.
