Solid and supportive back country ski boots for cross country skiing made in leather and is compatible with NNN BC bindings. A good choice for skiing outside tracks.
Besides the high cuff these ski boots also offers warmth due to a comfortable Thinsulate insulation and the anatomic footbed offers good fit.
The Alpina BC 1600 has an Alpitex membrane that offers additional protection against moisture and water.

|Been out twice with my 1600s and I am pleased with the quality of the materials and the support. Fit big, but a full size lower would have been too small. Nice and warm too! I am looking forward to when they are fully broken in and feel like slippers...won't take long! I wear size 49, so the selection for boots in this category is limited. They are a great combination with my Fischer S-Bound 112 (189cm) BC skis with a manual NNN binding (THE way to go!). After my second outing I reached in to see if they were damp inside and found a piece of duct tape sewn between the sole and the upper - strange! It was deep in the toe box and I had to tear it out. I think I was able to removed it without damaging the lining. I cannot see all the way to the end of the boot, but I cannot feel any tears. Relatively fast shipping - may have be slowed down slightly because of border crossings from overseas and/or COVID. Happy to have discovered this site - more gear on the way!

|These boots are working well after about a dozen uses. They fit a bit big so I use two foot beds and a pair of bigger socks to fill them out. Service was great from Skatepro. They shipped fast

|I thought I ordered the wrong size boot because I have worn 48 before, but the SkatePro folks knew what they were doing when they sent a 49; they fit amazingly well! And the boots themselves are fantastic; the options are limited at sizes this large, so I was very pleased when it turned out that the Alpina 1600 was as comfortable and supportive as I could have hoped. The Alaska MAY be more supportive, but it doesn't come in my size. If I want to ski alpine, I won't be using these boots (or the Rossignol 90s I use them on), but these are about as aggressive as I could ever need for nordic, uphill or down. Thanks SkatePro!!!
