Alpina X5 Skiboard/Ski Boots 2015/16 Unisex
Once again our favorite pick for the best skiboarding boots on the market. These are simply just great boots. Alpina X5 skiboard boots provide the performance you need, yet are really comfortable, warm and offer a more upright stance. We've carried Alpina products for many years and are always happy with their amazing quality. These boots were well received for the last two seasons and work great with skiboards (as well as longer skis). With easy entry and exit, a more upright stance, and a thermal performance fit liner that will mold to the shape of your foot just from riding, these are super comfortable to ride and even walk in. The X5's are true all around foot-friendly boots. These boots also feature an anatomical footbed and an ergonomic shell volume. There are 4 micro-adjustable aluminum smart buckles with macro adjustable caches which makes for a much more comfortable and custom fit. This means you can adjust these boots to fit almost any calve just by a simple adjustment. There is also a 35mm power strap at the top for just the right secure fit.
In addition to comfort however, the construction of these boots and anatomic footbed deliver maximum power transfer to your skiboards. With skiboarding, it's the stiffness for side-to-side carves that matters and these boots are great for carving, whether taking an easy ride or fast, lay-it-over carves. With the upright stance, these boots are great for parks/pipes riding and anything else you decide to do. Bottoms are sure grip for stability when walking to and from lifts and are replaceable.

Additional Sizing Info: Because on skiboards you ride standing more upright rather than in a forward lean (as with skis), the correct size is usually the same as your regular shoe size. Keep in mind that you may be wearing heavier socks so you may want to choose a half size larger if that is the case. Arch supports or orthotics tend to pull toes back so true to shoe size would tend to be correct.

I skied for two days straight when these boots arrived at my door. My feet felt perfect at the end of the weekend. They are very comfy for walking compared to any other boots I have worn. It wasn't even necessary to loosen the buckles when walking. I am very impressed with these boots and would recommend them to anyone looking for a top notch quality boot.
