It's the perfect, ultimate boots for Cross-Country Downhill. An Alpina Alaska BC boot with a thermo-moldable custom liner. Any boot fitting issues? Toe crush? Cold feet? Tow pinch? Heel lift? Freezing toes? Blisters? Low arch? Say goodbye to it all. That was then, this is now. I'm telling you, it’s THE perfect boot!
Just bake the liners and you will have a perfect fit. A XCD leather boot especially molded to your own feet, for twice the downhill control and twice the precision. As soon as your feet moves inside, the whole boot reacts instantly. No more rubbing or blisters, no need to wear 3 pairs of socks to get a better fit. As soon as you step into the boots, you instantly feel the complete control. Which also means perfect comfort. Remember when I said that the Alaska were the most comfortable boots ever? Well, that was before I knew better. The new Watermelons Doubles are just incredibly more comfortable. The kind of comfort you never dreamed of. The kind of comfort you never imagined you could achieve with such a supportive leather boot. They are SO smooth, yet so precise and supportive.
They now transform themselves into expedition boots. With that much insulation, say goodbye to cold feet. Even though the Alaskas were already very, very warm boots, they were always a bit problematic for my old sweaty feet. Now I can go anywhere and feel the warmth no matter how deep in the woods I am skiing. Storms, winds, altitude, frostbite? A big beard and a pair of Watermelon Doubles and I’m not afraid of anything. This lightning storm, this tidal wave, This avalanche, I'm not afraid. Come on, come on… ♪ ♫
The liners can be pulled from the boots very easily to walk around inside the hut or chalet. They really make excellent slippers for apres-ski activities. And even though the foam already expanded around the possible voids on your feet, the added C-Pads outside the liners lock your feet onto the sole, filling the void between the Achilles tendon and ankle bone.
All the power and precision of a plastic boot, with the smoothness and the feeling of a pure leather boot. Seriously, how could it be better than this?
