Touring Boot for tall people
« on: 11/10/19, 08:58 AM »

I have thoroughly enjoyed my Dalbello Sherpa touring boots for the last 5 years or so.  But the one thing I am constantly wishing for while skiing them is a taller cuff.  I am 6'4".  The boot cuff, with the spoiler extended up all the way always feels like I am skiing an ankle boot.  While I am going to start looking for boots with taller cuffs, I was wondering if there was anyone else out there who has already solved this dilemma and could offer some advice.

Thanks!

FWIW: When one is skiing effectively, the pressure is on the boot tongue and the shin in the front, not the spoiler in the back.   Pressure on the spoiler is a recipe for an ACL tear.

Jet sticks!  (If anyone remembers them...  Probably a few of you old coots...)
