Re: NNNBC boot for wide feet

NNNBC boot for wide feet

Am looking for a NNNBC boot that doesn’t massacre my wide feet. So far no luck; if they are wide enough they are too long and vice versa. I’ve tried a bunch of different brands, which, as it turns out, all share the same outsole. So is there really any choice? Being in downstate NY snow is a sometim...

Re: Asnes USGI Combat Skis

I just got a pair of these in a 210 length, which weigh 3200g give or take. My question is what kind of binding will work best with these skis; am leaning towards NNN BC but worry they are not heavy duty enough given the weight of the ski. Alternately a 75mm binding, though would have to then get th...
