Well Krummholz and Al, I’m counting on some reviews of these boots when you are able. I shouldn’t need a heavy leather 75 mm boot for a long time, but I’m happy to see a new boot being manufactured in the heavy class. Norwegian welt boots are difficult to obtain, and fit is a gamble. It’s good to see a widely marketed boot in the class.
BTW Krummholz, as for cheap old guy, I bought my Alaska 75 on a close out for under $100 to my door. After skiing the Alaska 75, I hope to always have a soft leather 75 mm boot as well!

I tried the Ski March as lift served boot with my SB98’s, nice and stiff. And as an approach / xcD boot, I could feel the blisters growing on my heels by the first mile, I know they need to be broken in but I don’t have 5 years. My 43 SM’s seem very narrow too, so on to the Transnordic.

@Krummholz I've heard a lot of Ski March horror stories. I’m glad I’m the fortunate guy they fit well. I didn’t have any issue with breaking them in either.
I look forward to your reports on the Transnordic, it will be nice to know there is an option when I need another boot.
BTW, I really am enjoying the versatility of the Rotte ST with cable. I used the cable with the Ski March this past weekend riding chairs. I did plenty of kicking around also. I also use the same binding with the Alaska 75.

Seem to be having issues sending PMs, is there a direct link to these or have they already sold?
