I never used the liners so they are brand new (I put my custom liners in) and I skinned on these a total of 14 days. Great AT boot.
An update to the venerable Spectre boots is more than just color. But not much more. La Sportiva stiffened the boots by around 5% with strengthening ribs in the lower shell below the cuff. The impressive walk mode (for 4 buckle boots) stays the same and you get some bonus power transfer to your skis. The Italians had enough of boring black and decided to make the 2.0 with a signature color splash. The Spectre 2.0 is still the most touring-friendly beef boot on the market.
