Best boots I have ever used.
I've been on an old pair of Scarpas for the last 5+ years, with lack of funds to get a new pair of boots. I finally bit the bullet, and picked up a pair of the Stilettos this season, and I couldn't be any happier. I will say that a brand new pair of these are NOT comfortable- but it's the new boot syndrome, can't expect anything less. As soon as you get a few days in them, and get them thermomolded, the liners will fit to your foot like a glove, and give you the power and direction you've always wanted. I am a 7.5 street shoe, and the 24.5 couldn't be any more perfect.The boa system is new for me, but I definitely like it. You get an equal pressure throughout the liner, so you're not sloshing around, and you don't have to worry about laces coming loose. The four buckle system is great as well- again, allows you to bust down the boot without making your feet go numb. Overall, I'd say these guys are the most comfortable pair of boots that I've ever had.As for function, these are amazing. They're a 110 flex, but they definitely feel like they have all the power you could want. I ride them between a pair of Rossignol park skis with the 02, and a pair of Moment big mountain skis, also with the 02s. It was a lot to get used to at first, but once you do get used to them, these babies ski smooth! Amazing for both big mountain, as well as park skiing!I did originally have worry that the 3rd and 4th buckle would conflict with one another while skiing- I drop very low every turn, and was afraid that the two buckles would hinder any further movement down. But I haven't had any issues with that thus far, and don't think I will in the future.I honestly can't stress enough how much I love these boots- can't believe I went for so long without them! They look good, feel good, and drive a ski like nobody's business. BD Stiletto FTW!
