The comfortable ski boot saga continues

They say the definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over expecting a different result. Don’t tell the ski boot designers who keep trying to create a comfortable ski boot that also skis well. DAHU Swiss Ski Boot is the latest to attempt the seemingly impossible. And it has some credentials behind the effort—one of the main players comes from Burton. The Swiss company’s attempt is a two-piece design. On its own the Italian-made liner is a soft, waterproof winter boot with a rubber sole, heat-reflecting interior and Primaloft insulation. When it’s time to ski, step into the Grilamid plastic frame (DAHU calls it the Corsair Entry). Think: skeleton of a regular ski boot. The spine folds back and the rib cage levers forward, making it easy to slide the liner in. Two buckles clamp it closed. The boot comes in men’s and women’s versions with flex ranging from 90 to 135. It definitely looks comfortable and innovative, but we’re waiting to get it on snow to judge how it skis. It will be available in limited numbers this year. $899; skidahu.com
