A warm and sturdy backcountry ski boot in full grain leather with good support and comfort for demanding ski touring in the mountains. This boot is a reinforced model of the classic Skarvet BC ski boot. The perfect companion in hilly terrain with steeper slopes, where the boots retain good skiing performance.

The boot is winter lined with GORE-TEX, has a stable and insulating midsole, as well as an anatomic insole. Memoryfoam provides comfort and together with the good fit in the heel this helps prevent blisters, so you can enjoy even the tougher trips and descents. The rubber mudguard protects and lengthens the life span of the boot.

The great stability and extra insulation means the boot is well suited for long distance ice skating.

Note that certain snow/crust conditions are an extreme strain on the boots’ materials, and with use under such conditions, increased wear is expected.
