I purchased the predecessor of this boot several years ago. I ended up finally returning them because one of the zippers kept separating at inopportune times. I was disappointed to have a flaw in the boot but LL Bean exchanged the boots with no hassle.
I was concerned that the new boot would not ski as well as the old. I have found it to be noticeably better. I use these boots most of the time with my Fisher Skate Skis.
The new boot are slightly lighter but give great support for skating with just enough flex if you decide to Classic. T
hey seem plenty warm.
They have made the collar slightly larger so that they zip easier and I have had no problem the zippers. I
I have had plantar faciitis but the these boot have felt great. They use a lighter speed lace latch but so far it works better than the old one. I did buy in Freeport and spent a lot of time originally trying them for size. I thought the size 46 may have been a tad small but it has turned out to be perfect.
It is good to find a product that the manufacturer improves and does not cheapen with time.

Rated 3 out of 5 by BrooklynBean63 Run very small
I ordered a size 40 -- which translates to a US 9 for women. My toes were scrunched up at the top and I had to return them. I also ordered the Fischer Offtrack My Style boot in a size 40 and they fit great. So, I don't think it's the Fischer brand that runs small , probably just this particular style.
