NNNBC boot replacement

Postby lilcliffy » Mon Dec 11, 2017 1:52 pm

Starting to think about replacing my current Alpina Alaska BC boots.

Currently considering two options:
1) another pair of Alaskas.
2) Alfa Quest Advance.

Very pleased and satisfied with the Alaska- no real need to replace them!

Very interested in trying the Alfas- VERY expensive!!!

Thoughts? Advice?

if it ain't broke, why fix it? course i'm still in the honeymoon period with my alaska's so i might be a bit biased. also i never rode the quests either so my opinion is basically shit...

hope that helps! :D

Try to convince the Fey Bros or LaCordee to carry the Lofoten GTX BC so I can buy a pair too... ;)

I need a pair of shoes with a buckle at the instep to prevent heel lift from my skinny feet... And I'm too afraid to mess up my Alaska BCs to try adding a ratcheting buckle myself...

Yeah, those Lofoten's are wicked.

Stetind with an instep strap- awesome.

Need to convince LaCordee that they should be carrying Crispi leather boots period!

I have the same problem with heel lift- I have narrow ankles and heels.

What's worse is the ball of my foot is comparitively wide- otherwise I would wear a narrower women's last.

Hey that's an idea... Never thought about it, I might give it a try... Plus, women's boots are always more colorful... But my BOF might be too large too... So we have the same feet...? 8-)
