Got these new in Patagonia when I didn’t have my gear but got invited on a week long ski trip. Selling as I am back and don’t need two pairs.
“This is one helluva boot. The Nordica Hell and Back Hike Pro Ski Boots are designed for true all-mountain skiing. Backcountry, side country or just warming up on the groomers, these boots have it all. They are lightweight. Utilizing Triax high density polymer, 25% of the weight has been dropped from the shell and cuff which is great when you flip these boots from a ski boot into a hiking boot. A High Traction Rubber Toe and Heel make for walking on hard surfaces and rocks much easier. These boots have a 45 Degree Instep Retention which provides the maximum amount of heel retention and forefoot comfort so you're fit can be secure inside these boots. Easy entry and exit are also made possible by this 45 degree feature. When you're hitting the snows hard you'll love the Dual-Density Full Shock Eraser technology which helps absorb most of the shock upon landing. Awesome for the adventurer, the Nordica Hell and Back Hike Pro Ski Boots truly are amazing when it comes to technology, style and comfort.“
