This will be my fourth season with the Diablo Pro boots. I have narrow feet and they were only the second boots I've ever owned that really gave me control of skis. The problem is I started teaching last year and they are not so much fun to wear all day when you do a lot of standing around or skiing switch to watch your students. I only weigh 140 pounds and 2 years ago Brent Amsbury from Park City questioned whether they were too stiff for me. Last season was sort of a lost season for me due to complication from a ruptured Achilles tendon, but lately I've been thinking of getting a pair of Full Tilt First Chair or Dalbello Krypton Cross to replace the Tecnicas and I'm wondering about what I may be giving up if I do that. The shops where I might buy these of course tell me that my skiing will improve with these new fabulous boots. If it makes a difference I'll be skiing primarily on 161cm Icelantic Shamans.
Thanks for any advice you can offer.
