  • Description
  • This boot has a 105mm width in the forefoot area, and is one of the widest available for ski boots. This width gives wide-footed skiers a chance to enjoy skiing, instead of cramping up and getting pressure points the whole day. Average width skiers will find that this width is very comfortable and warm.

    40 Flex Rating:40 Flex for an adult boot is VERY soft, and indicates that this boot is meant for beginners and very casual cruiser skiers. If this is a junior boot, 40 flex is stiffer than average and will be meant for strong kid skiers.

    Alpina Sizing :Alpina boots mondo to US shoe sizing conversion is a little different from most other brands. Please make sure to refer to the sizing chart in order to find your correct size.

    Rear Entry Shell Design:This boot features a true Rear entry shell design, just like from the 80s. No hybrid almost rear-entry buckle systems. Just a single ratchet-tightening buckle and a massive rear opening.

    High Thermal: This boot features extra thermal material in the toe of the boot to keep your foot a little extra warm.

    Replaceable Toe and Heel Pads:This is a must-have for skiers that don't live in ski in/ski out condos. When your ski tech tells you that you have to buy new boots because the soles are worn down too much, just laugh at him and tell him to order you a new set of sole plates.

      Outstanding Service

      Purchased the Alpina R4 Rear Entry ski boots for my daughter who has a disability. The ease of access and width of the boot are perfect for her. She can slip them on easy whereas other boots were just too hard for her. I have to mention the outstanding service. I ordered these boots online and received them in Australia within 4 days. I cannot express how impressed I am with this type of service. Good on level nine sports. Keep up the good work.
      PS: My husband is so impressed he is also considering purchasing a pair for himself.

      Skiing with a fused ankle

      The Alpha R4 rear entry ski boot made skiing possible with my fused ankle. Because of continued swelling, I wear a larger R4 on the fused ankle foot and my normal ski boot on the healthy foot. I am starting a new style trend with mismatched boots!

      Great boot that fits an AFO brace.

      I have to wear an AFO brace when I ski. I just ordered a size up from my normal boot size and I was able to get the AFO and my foot in. Thanks for making these! Otherwise, I would have to spend a ton on a custom boot.

      good boot at a great price

      I bought the Alpina R4.0 from Level 9 a couple months ago and have been using them at resort and for Alpine Touring. I have a high instep making it very difficult to get into other types of boots. The Alpinas are softer than my old SX 81 rear entry boots and I notice a slight difference skiing between the two, not a big deal. There are no adjustments on the Alpinas so I had to build them up to fit with superfoot footbeds and also a layer of felt under those to get a snug fit. For comfortable AT touring I pop open up the boots and stuff the buckles and straps under my pant gaitors. Their was some friction while touring but some evo patches on the liners helped with that. The biggest problem with AT touring is the straps and buckles when loosened during travel could be damaged and are hard to fit under the pant gaiters. Am hoping to find some longer ladder (ratcheting) straps so that I can loosen the straps for touring without totally unbuckling them. The Alpinas are also lightweight, about 2 pounds per boot. I am quite happy with them, they are very comfortable, I do not need a boot for double black terrain or racing, and they were very inexpensive.

      A little trick I have for getting into (and out) of ski boots, use a 24″ long metal shoehorn, makes it easy

      Ready for snow!

      I have a high instep on my right foot, which makes it difficult/painful to get into regular ski boots; to the point that sometimes that I’d rather not ski after all the effort of putting them on because my foot hurt. I received these, popped the buckle in the back and slid my foot right in easily and more importantly, comfortably! They have a little more flex than my other boots but I don’t think it’ll be enough to impede the way I ski. I mostly cruise and enjoy the ride.

      Easy to get on after ankle injury!

      Feels so good getting the boot on and off, as I have a previously broken ankle. Can’t even get into my old boots without straining the ligaments! Now I can ski again with my 9 year old!!
