Ski Boots For Comfort

Why do ski boots have to hurt? Shouldn’t skiers enjoy the same comfort as snowboarders do? The right design can make it easier to release pressure from the buckles when needed without having to undo the bottom of your pants. The POC Tarsus boots eschews buckles for laces connected to a tension wheel you dial in for the perfect fit. I’m a snowboarder, not a skier so I can’t comment on how comfortable this might be. Any skiiers wanna chime in?

    Nordica had similar boots with the name Smartech a few years ago.. I have a pair and like it a lot, dead easy to use, and quick to take up… However as far as I know they don’t make it any more, dunno why…

    Soft-shell boots came and went about 5 years ago. While they were a bit more comfortable, their fit and flex was too unreliable. Thus they weren’t marketed as performance boots, relegated to the recreational portion of companies’ product lines. I have no idea why they didn’t stick there, though. Perhaps there was not enough comfort added to make up for the loss of performance, or maybe the performance market is just that much bigger than the recreational.

    Whatever the reason, I think, while this is a beautiful deign that addresses some of the major problems with ski boots, it may be part of a dead market.

    This is great, i love the photos and infographics. I’ll have to trust you on the comfort.

    Looks UGLY. Buckles are way more effective than laces. And I have a feeling you’d get snow down beside the ‘tongue’ bit if you skiied in powder.

  • Ray says:

    i think the boot is butt ugly. its way too big with too many components. and soft boots dont work as they dont handle the forces involved in skiing and leave all the work up to your lower legs and feet and make you more uncomfortable. ski boots need to be fit to an individual- i dont see that this boot fixes anything that needs fixing, like real, acheivable customisation and life cycle issues. And yea soft boots like this came and went 5 years ago for all the reasons above and their extra componenets make them unreliable and heavier.
