Buckles (lighter, stronger)
Power Strap (That boot doesn't have)
Materials Plastics/Metals (stronger plastics, lighter, more accurate to flex because plastic degrades over time)
Soles (not as worn out as 20 year old boots, some you can replace if you can find them)
Foot bed under your insoles are made of better materials designed to obsorb impact and vibrations.
If people want to use 20 year old boots, use them. I see people on Old boots and straight skis all the time.
I have a question for you. Why would you choose a boot that is far inferiour to current tech boots when you don't have to? Why do you use new tech ski's when there are old straight ski's out there?
It's like an Old car, eventually it's time is up.....
