New Boot Time and Questions

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

I really don't need new boots, but I want them :)  I currently own a pair of Dabello Krypton Cross from 2008.  I am in my initial stages of  looking at boots online, but I will purchase local as I have no idea how someone could purchase boots online and get a good fit.  Yes the pricing is attractive online, but you are missing out on the benefits of a local bootfitter.

 

Now to my question.  The Freeride boots intrigue me and wondering if they are everything an All-Mountain boot is, with the benefit of going into a hike mode for backcountry or would I be loosing something over the All-Mountain?  I normally ski in the Mid-Atalantic, so any backcountry is when I go out west.

1)   walkmode for touring will not detract from a boots skiablility and performance assumeing the touring and non-touring boots are the same (cochise vs demons)

 

2) the boot catagories are all just marketing.  YOu need a boot that fits your foot, and then skis are terrain specific.    A boot that fits you you can ski everywhere on the mountain with.

Thanks for the information.  Now I need to start looking for a boot that will fit my foot that has a touring mode.
