Park and Pipe boots for All Mountain use?

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
 I'm looking getting a new pair of boots. Its been 6 years since the last time I bought boots. I was at my favorite ski shop this weekend looking at new boots. The guy at the shop had me looking at park and pipe boots. He said he likes the lateral stiffness of the boots and feels they give him more control over the skis with more comfort. I will probably never play in the park at all. I stick to mainly inbounds skiing, altho will do a little hiking if the line is worth it. The boot I'm looking at is the Dalbello VooDoo. I'm just looking for some second opinions on this style boot in all mountain situations.

Thanks in advanced...

 Sorry to be a lil antsy but I'm planning on going back to the shop this weekend. I'm always al finicky buyer and always worried about buyers remorse...

I just bought a pair this weekend, got a good deal at $280. I was looking at the regular Dalbellos but my ankle got sore on the inside. The guy at the shop was helpful & suggested the Voodoo, more comfort without sacrificing the stiffness. I wore them around the house for about an hour, just to test the comfort & they feel great. Can't wait to get out on the hill to try them.

park, "all mountain" race etc are marketing words,   you get boots that fit you, (skis are for conditions)

If that boot is the shape, flex that you need, great.

 Thanks guys... I picked up a pair then. I haven't got a chance to try them out yet. That nuisance called work has been getting in the way.

 What do you guys think of the Dalbello Voodoo?  I'm thinking about picking these up as well.  What are your thoughts on the flex after using them for a bit?  What type of terrain do you typically ski?

Thanks!

I have not had a chance to ski them yet as our season came to an abrupt halt in the Midwest 2 weeks ago. I just got back from taking the kids to Disney & everything was crap around here. Won't know till next year.
