ISO Crispi CXP boots in sz 27.5

Kind of a shot in the dark, but my trusty Crispi CXP boots are getting close to the end. If anybody has a pair of these boots in size 27.5 they're looking to let go of, well... I'm looking for that. Thanks.

Re: Pictures, pictures and pictures!

Some photos from Saturday in a 'Forever Wild' part of the Catskills. We picked a mellow angled slope under the hemlocks to lap. It was mellow, which was the desired activity level. :) I came overdressed with Voile Vector BC skis w/ Switchback X2 bindings. My pal came appropriately attired in Fischer...

Re: XCD - the past and future of skiing?

I can only speak from personal experience. My closest ski hills are in the Catskills, which have been really snow-deprived lately. Unless I want to drive for 3 or more hours, I have to wait patiently for a good snowfall, then pounce on conditions while they're good. You snooze, you no ski -- unless ...

Questron for ya... Which skis for 3-buckle boots?

I need yet another pair of skis like I need another hole in the head, but... I guess I'm shopping. Hoping for some advice from the congregation... First, background info: I'm in 3-buckle Crispi CXP boots. Due to fit issues I won't be changing out of those anytime soon. My preferred bindings are Axl ...

Re: Saw this on Facebook - Voile TTS binding coming...

I wonder if the price will be substantially less than the other, more advanced/feature-laden binders out there... Maybe that's Voile's angle. I dunno. I do know that I like Voile's bindings in general. They've always worked well for me, and I like their ease of use and simplicity. Maybe this one wil...

Re: Johnny, Pierre, and the beast. Or the new Telemark Tech Norm (TTN) vs the future of XCD (NTN-BC)

That's a good idea and would be nice on a T4 type boot. It's been here for over 10 years... It's called a Crispi Shiver NTN. Wait... Crispi Shiver weighs like 7 lbs a pair, and they're pretty stiff. They're basically the NTN version of the XP model. Scarpa T4 is a much lower, softer boot. Most comp...

It's only a screen grab from a social media post, but it looks legit!

Re: NNN BC - ski width

I still have both leather and plastic (2 buckle) telemark boots. The cable question is a good one. What I've found is that with plastic boots, even something as soft and touring oriented as the Scott Excursion, the cable in the Voile 3-Pin Cable binding does not make much difference. The plastic boo...
