However- the current Alaska 75 does seem improved over the earlier model...


Please share your observations, there is still lots of interest in the Alaska 75mm. Personally, I have only noticed a change in lace and leather color. As the sole is vibram, do you think any changes have been made to it that are specific to the alaska?
happy holidays!

Unfortunately I do not have a first gen Alaska 75 to compare to, but the current Alaska 75 has a stiffer sole flex and seems like it has a thicker duckbill than the first generation...
Cross-country AND down-hill skiing in the backcountry.
Unashamed to be a "cross-country type" and love skiing down-hill.
