I was looking for a replacement pair for my well aged Rossi Bandit Free. Based on a store clerk's recommendation, I got a chance to fit a 2015/16 pair recently at a mega ski retailer. I have never been a big fan of Lange boots for my mid-width flat feet because of Lange's known race fit. With very little expectation towards the comfort to come, I was very surprised that they actually fitted me really well. It was probably the best while comfortably snugged I've felt inside a boot for a long time. I even downsized by a full size. I suppose the slightly wider 100 last really made that much of a difference.
So, here is my question... Because this isn't the first year Lange sells these boots, are there any differences other than cosmetics between this year's model (green) and last year's (orange)? Is there anything that I should look out for if I was to consider buying a 2014/15 pair to save a few bucks? How important is it to get these liners thermal fitted?
Thanks in advance! (for anyone else who has information but can't post in this forum, please IM me)
