980/982? Don't think the Gran Prix was offered in that generation, but I might be wrong.

This is the "revivial" Grand Prix, per nordica rep, circa 1990. Not the original 982, but before the name "Grand Prix" was brought back into the line

Yeah, that color scheme seems about right. Other than that, it looks like a modern boot.

Phil I think you would look simply smashing in your one-piece. Totally retro dude.

That's a Grand Prix that was available to racers at the same time as the 981 or 982. That one looks like 981 colors, so it's probably 1989. I never saw one in a retail shop. The 981 and 982 had a knob on the back to reduce the heel pocket. When the 982 was discontinued (91 or 92?), the GP came back to retail shops, but in those nasty green and yellow colors. Around 1999 there was a new GP. All the GPs were nice boots if they fit you. The 981/982, not so much.

it surely is the grand prix, the 981 /982 was as stated the retail boot, the 2 wacking great rivets in lovely green gives this one away as the original


mind you i'm not sure i would take it out in the cold after all these years

The boot actually flexes quite well. i too am uncertain if taking it into the cold is a good idea, but that never stopped me before.
Quite interesting how much the boot is close to the current dobie in form. The flex is intersting, it feels more like the old tecnica formula / xt models.
