Rated 5 out of 5 by Robert Nirvana in a boot?
I have skied since I was 3 and never thought of boots as comfortable, more as torture you just become accustom to. I love these boots for comfort, and for the even flex and predictable control. In the 20+ years since I started Tele skiing, I assumed discomfort was the price you pay for the love of the sport. But that changed when I got my first pair of your boots (Seekers),
and with the Custom I am even happier.
The buckles are tough! and easy to get opened with cold fingers after a long day. The BOA system is brilliant, it snugs the liner to your foot like a glove and has proven very durable after more then 2 seasons, as have the boots. Thanks for your investment in doing a telemark boot right, the comfort, design and function exceed what I had come to hope for.

Rated 5 out of 5 by chris Worth the weight
I am light, 145 lbs. This boot is heavy, 9 lbs. I ski mostly backcountry, mostly in Wasatch powder. Shouldn't add up to me loving this boot, but it skis like nothing else. The fit out of the box was better than anything I have ever found in the tele world. Take the time to mold them and it gets better. Stiff, yup. But fear not on the fluff. You can ski easy and quick and light in the Custom. It takes extra energy to move these up the hill, but the skiing down is so, so superior. Some finicky elements that have me wondering what the designer was thinking (open second buckle in mitts or thick gloves? No chance) but the skiing quality is never questioned. Don't let the weight scare you. You will ski better, and have more fun, in this boot.

This boot is tough. I came from a soft boot (Scarpa T2X) to this and I knew it was going to be a major change, so I was ready for it and got used to it quickly. Great fit and adjustability. It does everything I need it to, but I think I would actually prefer the Push due to the stiffness. The Boa liner is awesome.
Used with Hammerheads on Icelantic Nomads. Resort and backcountry.
