Product Details

Fit

Cabrio Design 3 Piece TechnologyCabrio Design permits the use of more rigid plastics in the lower shell. This strengthens the support around the foot and lower leg, providing quick response and precise transfer of power to the ski edges. This design also prevents the lower shell from distorting and bulging as the boot flexes, making the boot more smooth and stable at high speeds and on irregular terrain. Smooth and progressive forward flex is precisely controlled using an external shell tongue.

103 mm Forefoot WidthExtremely versatile fitting last combines an expanded volume forefoot and toebox area with a close fitting rearfoot ankle area. This comfortably accommodates a wide range of foot shapes with max foothold and exceptional comfort.

Comments about Dalbello Boss Ski Boots 2013:

Wow, let me just start by saying, what a fantastically designed ski boot. So a few years back I was younger and a little ignorant and ended up getting a size 30.5 boot for my size 10.5/11 foot, when I really need a 28.5. I got a way oversized boot because, at the time, I was being helped by a less than competent boot fitter and I said that I felt comfortable it in. I have pretty wide feet and muscular calves, so when I sized up the boot it felt better, when it actuality it was not the boot for me. This was 3 years ago, I've come a long way, and needed a proper boot. I went out boot shopping and tried on what had to be 5 or 6 pairs of boots that were really uncomfortable to bearable, but then I put on the Boss. I was a little speechless at first, it didn't feel like any boot I had ever tried on before. Very comfortable from the second I put them on, and skiing in them? Forget about it . . . literally, you will forget you are wearing ski boots, except that your feet will be very nice and warm. They feel super super solid and the canting and other options make them very accommodating, I always feel planted to the ski and ground in these boots. The only downside is they are on the heavier side but personally I don't see it as a downside though, I think it's one of the atributes of the boot that make them feel solid. Anyway in short, the Dalbello Boss is a great boot for people with all size feet/calves and people who will be predominately skiing off trail or in the park.

    Comments about Dalbello Boss Ski Boots 2013:

    I have tried a few other pairs of boots in the past, however the Dalbello Boss ski boots are the best I've come across. They are comfortable and fit well with just the right amount of flex for freestyle or downhill skiing.

      Great boot! Well made, what you should expect in a ski boot. No hot spots even on the first day. Tongue is soft and padded, no shin bang even after the ugliest landings. Great control over the ski without sacrificing comfort and blood circulation.

        Great boot for wider feet and legs. The Dalbello Kryptons are a little too narrow for my feet. I've only skied early season groomers with this boot, but can tell that it will be good all around the mountain. Personally, the only downside is their looks.

          Comments about Dalbello Boss Ski Boots 2013:

          I am not hard on my gear so don't buy new stuff very often. My Lange's had worked well for me for 10 years (yes!), but I figured at this later stage of my life that it was time for something new. Went to another well-known shop and the guy showed me these boots. Fully expecting to spend much more for a pair I was intrigued by these for so much less. I didn't pull the trigger and then when I finally decided to get them, they didn't have my size. A quick search took me to EVO.com and I got my pair sent to me immediately.

          Dalbello markets these as free rider / terrain park boots. I have no idea. They are comfortable, highly adjustable, and are plenty stiff for my needs. Graphics are perhaps a little over the top for someone my age, but so what?

                    I'm a 50+, advanced, all mountain skier with wide feet and huge calves who loves bumps and trees. They went on tight but never hurt. I had to crank them down a couple of times during the day but never had to loosen them, not even for lunch.Roomy yet snug, Couldn't be happier. Dalbello Boss rocks!

                        This is the first boot I've ever been able to ski in all day with minimal numbness. The flex could be a little soft for some, but with the addition of an Intuition Powerwrap liner I think this is one of the better options for anvanced skiers with a fat forefoot. Be sure to do a shell fit. I wear a size 9 street shoe and had a one finger shell fit on a size 25.0
