What boot for standing around

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
Hey guys, I was just wondering if anyone had recommendations for good "coaching" boots for race days.

I don't think I ever came so close to doing quality damage to my feet as I did last weekend standing on a pitch in -20 Celsius videoing the kids in my RL11s ...

It was not pleasant...

SO anything that would be appropriate to ski around in but much warmer than a plug...

Anything ?

I had the exact need with standing slopeside for hours watching my son in snowboard competitions. Bought a pair of Salomon SnowTrip TS's and they are simply tremendous...great traction, very warm, waterproof, thinsulate lined and the way they're designed, you can slip them on and off like a pair of loafers and are as comfortable as a pair of slippers!...plus the fact that they look pretty cool as well...love em!

BD Factor or Garmont Adrenalin for to use your current bindings?

Most coaches I see standing around courses these days are wearing AT boots.

Can vouch for the Adrenaline.... have spent up to 4 days in them when BC touring. Only time they came off was when hitting the sleeping bag.

I do some course work, and always spot the Alpine Touring set up on the coaches. Alpine boot, vibram soles. Agent AT and the AT companies, Garmont etc some have the cuff release and all have super traction

I'd go AT.
