Search for a Light weight touring boot with wide high volume fit

 Poster: A snowHead
Poster: A snowHead
To complete my new light weight touring set up for next season Im starting a search for a light pair of boot <1.35 kg . To narrow my search down would be great to have some feedback from people with wide feet and high in steps that have boots in this category,
My other issue with finding the right boots is I have small feet 24.5-25.5 max and therefore find that the stock of these sizes is limited.
The boots must also be able to fit into a shift binding as well as a standard tech binding.

My standard boot is a nordica Stryder 120 which is amazing in dh permance and more than adequate in the up for lift served and shorter day tours
Im currently looking at
Scott super guide carbon
Fisher travers carbon
Zero g carbon

Cheers

I don't have them yet, but for the same purpose, Andy at Solutions for Feet had my lined up for a pair of the new Atomic Hawx XTD. I have held them myself and can confirm they're extremely lightweight, and definitely have Dynafit inserts etc.

 Well, the person's real but it's just a made up name, see?

@1450grams just too heavy for my purpose and they are a narrow fit , but do look like a great boot enjoy

@Dabber, Dynafit Mercury TL, same wide, high instep feet as mine maybe - fit me like a glove i'm on my second pair. Discontinued now 2015/16's still about on line, but if you can find a pair online snap them up and get a custom insole from Graham at Rivington Alpine and you're sorted. I've a pair of 27.5 for sale (second hand vgc) but no good for you obviously too big.

 Anyway, snowHeads is much more fun if you do.

Agreed that a Mercury would be a good shout if you can find a pair in your size.

The new Dynafit Hoji Pro Tour is awesome but in their infinite wisdom (rolling eyes) it doesn't have a regular toe lug meaning that it's not compatible with many non-Dynafit bindings including the Shift. It also doesn't have their Masterstep heel insert so it can't be used with their Beast binding meaning Dynafit have just $hit on every one of their Beast customers Twisted Evil. Another marketing own goal from Dynafit!

@dp, 98mm last , and they are described as a narrow fit on the website , i usually look for 102mm last before starting to work on them !!!

@Markymark29, @spyderjon, will have a look around , the tlt7 also fitted the bill but no good with the toe and heel on that boot

Wide boots aren't really my thing, but the 2018/19 Technical Zero G Tour Pro might fit your requirements.

@Dabber, your striders are only 2mm wider than the XTD and with a heat mouldable shell will expand our that amount easily

The Scott is probably the best of the wider fits that are out there, either the superguide or the cosmos

 And love to help out and answer questions and of course, read each other's snow reports.
