Versatile shoes for downhill skiing and ski touring

OK but to see in duration

The shoe obviously respects its program with its inserts for hiking bindings and the release of the instep for walking. Unfortunately, after cumulative use comparable to a short ski trip (5.5 days), the state of wear of the shoe leaves some doubts about the solidity of the whole and in particular about the durability of the on/ski selector. In this aspect (finish/strength), as in those linked to comfort, I must specify that this shoe suffers for me from the comparison with a Rossignol pair acquired since (still at Decathlon) for a priori more limited use: but the Rossignol immediately became my main pair and I will reserve the Wedze FR500 for the Freerando with climb. In short, the quality/price ratio remains at 4 stars because of the promotion, but all the other stars were lost to the Rossignol.

The shoes are good and the joint lock release technology is good. RAS

Cool downhill shoes

As the previous person wrote - good for downhill riding. I bought it because they have inserts for touring skis with pin bindings. Unfortunately, the size of the shell excludes them from matching the bindings in such skis (unless Diamir basket ones) - unless you assemble the set yourself. This is worth taking into account

Size measured in store but too narrow therefore pain in the feet after two hours

Good product

Good shoes but of course need to be broken in to optimize comfort in order to exploit their technical potential and allow the best support and weight transfer on the skis.

PRICE/PERFORMANCE - GREAT

One of the cheapest ski alpine boots I've found. They are quite stiff and the chimney does not have as much clearance as I would expect. When walking, they are almost identical to ski boots. But it sits perfectly on the feet.

Good quality shoes

The shoes work well for skiing. As ski touring before testing. They are not heavy and you can walk easily in a mobile position. Warm.

Way too narrow

The ski boot is much too narrow. It is difficult to put on and take off the shoe. In addition, I get pain in my ankles after a few minutes on my foot. I also don't have wide feet. Let my girlfriend try on the shoe that has two sizes smaller her foot and it was impossible even for her. Had to return.

Value for money not so OK!

I had the opportunity to try this model for a ski touring trip (2 outings of +/- 15km 1200+) The product responds quite well overall. On the other hand, the shoe is huge! To adapt to my alpine skis and even to touring skis, I had to push the bindings to their maximum, I thought for a moment I had to give up a day of skiing because it was little past for the alpines, whereas 'with my alpine ski boots (Lange), the bindings are comfortable... Ditto for ski touring, I had to take XL bindings.. the rental company was amazed! Upon receipt of the product, the alpine ski heel pads are missing.... I don't know how to get them, whereas the product is sold adaptable to ski touring/alpine with the heel pads. Finally, adaptability / morpho, I had to open them during the effort because the maleoles were too expensive! I now have to find someone to fit the slippers. I'm skeptical...

Additional Product Information

Composition

Upper of: 100.0% Polypropylene ; Lining and sock of: 100.0% Polyester ; Outer sole of: 100.0% Thermoplastic Polyurethane ; Warm lining: 100.0% Polyester

Thermoformable liner

Polyethylene liner, 3 mm thick thermoformable material. By heating your liner, you can compress the foam to make room and increase comfort. Shock Absorber Area system in the heel for cushioning the shocks on bumps or jumps.

How to thermoform your liners

1- Preheat the oven to 80°C on fan mode.2- Remove the liners from the shells.3- Remove the insoles from your liners.4- Put the liner in the oven for just 5 minutes.5- Remove the liners from the oven.6- Put the soles inside the liners.7- Put the liners back into the boots.8- Put on your boots and lock each buckle to the mid-way setting.9- Wait for 15 minutes at room temperature before removing the boot.There you go, you are ready to ski

Hook adjustment

3 micrometric aluminium hooks and one 3-position hook on the shin to fit all sizes of calf. Wide strap for powerful and easy tightening of the top of the shell. Walk position on the shin hook (Walk in red) to increase the movement of the collar.

Sizing

Fine foot (last 100 mm), polyethylene heat-moulding liner: 3 mm heat-moulding foam all the way around the foot. Lightweight and comfortable liner. Preformed foam at the ankles. Flexible material so that the shape of the liner conforms easily to the climbing and walking phases. In case of discomfort after a few days of use, it’s possible to heat-mould your liners.

What is the flex?

To provide an indication of rigidity, brands assign a flex rating to every boot. This figure indicates the rigidity of the whole boot: the higher the figure, the stiffer the shell. A flex of 70 is considered best for skiers at intermediate level. A flex from 70 to 100 is for intermediate skiers. Beyond this value, the products are aimed at advanced skiers. Heavy builds can, however, go up a level.

How to try on ski boots?

Once the foot is in the boot, fasten the buckles to the midpoint. Can you go further? This means the volume of the boot isn't right for you. Once the boot is closed, you must flex the boots 3 times by pressing hard on the shins (put your hands on your knees to help) and push your heel backwards inside the boot. Stand upright: your foot should touch the end of the shell. When you flex, your foot should move backwards so you can no longer feel the end.

What should you do if you experience foot pain?

1/ Choose a technical skiing sock, fine to avoid areas of pressure and improve blood circulation in the foot.2//Choose a sole adapted to the shape of your foot to prevent it from being squashed and pressing against the shell. Ask a salesperson in store for advice.3/ Thermoform your liner.

How to avoid having cold feet?

Although it is often forgotten, drying the liner is the most effective way to avoid having cold feet. Even at -10°C, the foot sweats and the liner cannot dry by itself in its plastic shell, even over several days. Ideally, it should be removed every day. There is the option to use boot dryers that are more convenient because there is no need to remove the liner, you just plug them in!
