Sharing the same exact design as the Boss Retro 10, the Dalbello Boss Retro 9 boot has a 3-piece shell design and only 3 buckles (instead of the usual 4), a 103mm last and a adjustable 100/110 flex. The purpose of this design is to provide a very tight heel hold while keeping the rest of the boot free of pressure points. This unique design also gives the boot a very smooth forward flex which will help prevent the dreaded shin bang. The 100/110 adjustable flex makes these accessible for upper intermediate all the way up to expert skiers, whether they jump and jib or not. Oh yeah, the color of this boot is full-on rasta (red, yellow, green) perfect for most freeride skiers.

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.

Details

Secret Stash. You have found the secret stash, home to the best deals on the net, these are the best deals from a website of great deals, insane discounts on products we are trying to move out. These products won't last long so be sure to be quick on the trigger.

103mm Last Width: This boot has a 103mm width, which means it is above average width, so the total volume of the boot is generous, making this boot comfortable to wear, and easier to put on and take off than some more constricting boots.

100/110 Adjustable Flex Rating: At this flex, the skier should have good form, be skiing fast and aggressively. These boots feature an adjustable flex so you can set the boots to the softer or harder setting based on the day or based on your preferences.

Cabrio Design: Dalbello's critically acclaimed 3-piece design is the cornerstone to their freestyle performance lineup. Cabrio boots secure the foot and lower leg in a comfortable way, with a smooth and progressive forward flex. Cabrio boots are great for helping fight against shin bang, and are easier to put on and take off than comparable (high performance, non-cabrio) boots.

Trufit Performer Liner : The middle sibling of Dalbello's Trufit Liner Series combines comfort, precise fit and warmth all in one to make them some of the most high quality liners that come inside boots today.

Excenter Canting Rivet: Canting on the outside of the boot and a pivot on the inside gives the skier control over the left and right angle of the leg to correct for knock-kneedness or bowleggednesss

Shock Absorber Heel: An insert in the heel absorbs shock from harsh, jolting terrain, and helps cushion big air landings.

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.

Shock Absorber Cuff: The cuff of this boot has a shock absorbing insert. It is common for boots to have a heel shock absorber, but cuff absorbers are pretty rare. Cuff shock absorbers indicate one thing above others: You are currently looking at a freeride/park boot.

Dynalink by Dalbello: The middle buckle Dynalink boots is an extra big instep closure band that pulls the heel back into the heel pocket. Where some buckles pull your foot towards the footboard of the boot, boots with Dynalink pull your foot towards the heel of the boot. This is nice because it often means you can get an tight fit without constantly banging your toes against the end of the shell.

I would like to thank the team at Level9 for great service. I ordered my boots on a Thursday and they arrived at my house in Sydney in 5 days. Very happy with the fit thanks to the great information on the web site. I also ordered some skis a few weeks later and the same great service. Now all I need is some snow!! (Posted on 6/28/2015)

Amazing boot. Like wearing clouds on my feet. Softer than my heart when I was dumped by Nancy House in tenth grade. The names makes me feel tougher than I am, the boots make me skier better than I deserve. You too can be a boss (Posted on 3/23/2015)

decided to upgrade my rear entry boots to more advanced level (since I wanted to learn new techniques, which my rear entry boots would not allow me to). So I bought "Dalbello" Boss Retro 9, since they are good all mountain & free ride boots for advanced / expert skiers and very reasonably priced. My feet are average size "last" (Dalbello Boss are - 103mm.), but they work just fine. They feel nice & snug & keep your heel in place & tight without too much pressure on the rest of the foot (that's the idea they had for "Boss" model), but still give you great ability to be in control! I've tried them only once (since I bought them in the end of the skiing season ?) & didn't want to take them off in the end of the day! That's how good they felt! It usually takes a few times to brake the ski boots in, but I'm sure I would like them even more! Love the colors! (Posted on 3/21/2015)
