More rando boot reviews worth a look...



If you ever wonder what I look at and pay attention to for reviews here are a couple that would have helped with my own decision making.

I did not get much info on fit out of these reviews. Can you comment on fit between the scarpa and dynafit? I also assume these boots can not be punched out. I have wider feet and thus far have not been able to join the lightweight boot band wagon because all lightweight boots I have seen are for narrow feet.

The Dyna versions run more narrow than the TLT5s for me. The TLT6 is little wide yet than the TLT5. My foot says the Scarpa is a little wider than a TLT5 but it isn't much wider.

I suspect there are some volume/last width numbers around on all of these boots just don't knwo where to get my eyes on them easily, sorry.

A really good boot fitter can punch out the TLTs so I don't see why they couldn't punch out the Scarpa and DyNA versions. But don't know anyone who has.

I did mine(TLT5P) at home, both the heel and the forfoot with a hot air gun. Worked great! Much better fit for my feet afterwards and no issues at all.

Nice work Edvin! Thanks for the comment :)
