The Dalbello Prime 8 boot will help beginner and intermediate skiers feel right at home on the slopes. This is the same boot as the Prime 6 just with metal buckles instead of plastic. It's comparable to the Aerro series boots, this boot is wide, 105mm in the last, a soft flex and a cozy "SuperComfort" liner. All these features combined make this boot more like a chaise lounge than a school desk chair (which most boots in this category are). Just slip it on, set it, and forget it! You can be in this boot all day long without any discomfort, which is necessary for a good day on the hill. We recommend the Prime 8 for beginner to intermediate skiers looking for a comfortable, durable and most importantly affordable boot.

This chart provides a safe comfortable size that most all skiers will be able to use. If you are looking for a true skier's performance fit you may want to size down one half to one full size smaller. For most ski boots, the full (.0) size uses the same shell and liner as the half (.5) size (like, 25.0 and 25.5) and will have almost an identical fit.

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.

65 Flex Index: This boot has a flex index of 65, which is best for beginner to intermediate skiers. A boot of this flex will be more comfortable and generally lighterweight than a stiffer boot, but will be less responsive while skiing at high speeds.

Mondo Half and Whole Sizes: There is no fit difference between half and whole mondo sizes. So, a man who wears a size 9 or 9.5 US shoe size can choose a size 27.0 or 27.5. Some of our boots are only available in the half size, don't be alarmed, just remember they are the same size so you can select either one worry free.

Bi component shell: Two different densities of plastic used to keep the boot stiff and able to perform at high speeds, yet softer in specific areas to make them easier to put on and take off.

30mm Power Strap: A velcro strap, 30mm in height, acts as an extra buckle to keep the top of the boot together. The 30mm straps are good for recreational skiers or junior racers.

Micro-adjustable aluminum buckles: These aluminum buckles can be moved to adjust for size, so if the default position of the buckle and the teeth is too wide or too narrow, you can move it until it fits.

Supercomfort Liner: Dalbello's Supercomfort liner is super comfortable. It is fairly basic, but thats fine since you will find it in more entry level boots. And also it is super comfortable, did we mention that?

Dalbello Owner's Manual: This may seem trivial, but Dalbello boots come with the most thorough owner's manual that we've ever seen. They walk you through any and all of the adjustments that each particular boot can make. Thumbs up for the great info, Dalbello!

Can the prime 8 boots go to any binding


For wide foot with high archReview by Jay
This is a great boot for someone with a wide foot and a high arch and instep. The toe box has plenty of room; no crammed toes. The price can't be beat. A comfortable recreational boot for a beginner to intermediate skier. (Posted on 2/8/2017)
Perfect BootReview by Michelle
Bought this boot for my husband who is an advanced beginner. He wears a size 12 or 12.5 shoe, we bought a 31.5 and he was very happy with the fit. Very comfortable with a bit of room. The shipping was very fast, 2 days across the border into BC. And stated in the shipping information there are no additional charges from the courier, this is also true. Great service.

First time owning ski/skibootReview by Wes
Just bought my first pair of ski and ski boots. They are very comfortable and I am having a great time. The season is just starting for us in Pa. Going to be a great year. The service at level 9 is second to none. (Posted on 12/20/2016)
very pleasedReview by oldskiguy
My order was placed late on a Thursday evening and arrived the following Monday afternoon at our home in Canada. It arrived in excellent condition. The boots are very comfortable and I am looking forward to trying them out over Thanksgiving at Keystone Colorado. The boot bag will be a help as we transport our luggage and equipment by air.
Thank you L9.

The Best Boots!Review by Em
Pros: Comfy, Easy to walk in
Cons: A little stiff
Location: Rhode Island
Got them for Christmas and was able to use them the next week on the mountain. Perfect for beginner to intermediate skiing. Did not need to break them in a all! They are a little stiff to get your foot in, but once you get them on, they are extremely comfortable and stable. I would highly recommend!! (Posted on 1/20/2015)
Beginner BootsReview by UTSki
Pros: Comfortable
Location: Alta, UT
Bought this for 16 yr old beginner, first boot for him, he loved them. Comfortable for beginner, he is 190 pounds. That was the most I could really expect from a beginner boot. About the best price I saw on beginner boots for 190 lb skier. (Posted on 12/4/2014)
