- "...Intrigued by seeing this boot always on the podium for years..!"
...First, my experience with OMCGEAR has been great : lowest prices, faster shipping than most sites in America and good communication..! I had to return the boots for a smaller size, and everything went as planned...Except for Canada Post expensive fees..! Since ALPINA is the only major brand that we can't find in store, where I live (Québec), I had to take a guess on the size, even by knowing my 'mondo point' and referring to the company chart, the boot feels larger skiing with it than trying it in store. I've learned that it has to feel almost a bit too small when putting my feet in, to feel in control when skiing, if I want to be technical, of course..! That said, for the same size, this ESK is narrower than the 2.0 !..I wanted a stiff an narrow boot and that what I got, but you can't expect much comfort from a race boot, at least this one..! They took off the foam from the previous model's inside cuff which I had to make myself, but easy to do!..The velcro strap could be a little longer and doesn't close symmetrically by the 'exit' it's passing through..! Small detail, but for a boot that price...??? This is my first skate boot, although I've tried Fischer 's Carbonlite before which I liked better..! But it is so personnal, your mind vs your feet..!
Yes, I would recommend this product.
