Comfy Boots?

post #1 of 17
Thread Starter 
Any suggestions for a boot that would be reasonably comfy when standing around for 2-4 hours at a time (needs to fit in an alpine binding)? Warmth would be a bonus but not a requirement.

something big, wide, with a walk mode, and with intuition liners and hottronics

Can anyone recommend a good ski?! : …more info please. What side of the performance/comfort side are you leaning towards? Standing around 2-4 hours?? Are you an instructor waiting for a group hook up? Are you a lift mechanic? Do you care if you turn like the Titanic?

Get a pair of Strolz boots. High comfort + high performance in one package. Not very warm at all, but you can put ThermIc heaters in them.

I'm only interested in comfort while standing around for 2 to 4 hours but the boot must fit into an alpine binding.

I think it's really abou your boot fitter. My Doberman 150s are the most comfortable boots I'ver ever had. I told him I need to be able to wear them all day, and I can (and do).

Hi Max,
One of my buddies used to teach years ago. He had two sets of boots. One was his performance fit boot. The other was his teaching fit. To teach, he had a boot in the correct shell size but with more volume. It wasn't an expert boot at all.

My 130s are fine as long as I'm not standing still for hours. But when I'm standing still forward lean, ramp, etc start to take a toll. Not to mention they are anything but warm.

I don't get to put many on either. Put an Agent AT from Tecnica on earlier this year, quite nice. Other than that, there are the usual suspects such as Scarpa, Garmont, etc. Just like any other boot, go find someone with a good selection and try 'em on...

I bought a pair of Rossignol Soft 1's a couple of years ago that are heaven on days when I am not really skiing. Sadly, they were dropped from the line.
