I can feel the the ski so well when I have it laid over on groomers! In the bumps and powder they are light and lively! The kicker was skinning this spring in them…so light, no blisters and your ripping down the hill after in “real” boots!!

For me sport is adrenalin and speed means adrenalin. Since I have been using Dodge SkiBoots I feel to go faster! Near me located the bigger producer of ski boots in the world but not the best! Dodge SkiBoots are absolutely the best.
“You can actually dial back the input, versus putting more in, and get the desired outcome.”
I am looking for anything that will make my time on the slopes more enjoyable. For me, it is creating a ski and boot set up that makes you feel like you’re driving stolen racecar. That’s what I’m constantly searching for in equipment.
“The boots do not have to be tight to perform well…light for hiking, stiff for hard snow conditions, perform without having to crank down the buckles, and surprisingly warm for coaching or lessons.”
Schweitzer Mountain Resort, Sandpoint, Idaho
Check out the web site, look at videos, ask questions. Looks like my buddy John Nicolich took my recommendation.
"The boots are so close to perfect that I expect to keep them for many many seasons. Keep up the great work…"

- Not a just a ski boot, a skiers boot©
Expect to use another liner, I settled on a Zipfit WC after trying two different intuitions and an old Lange. I might foam them. Put tape or something on the inside of boot to protect them from being chipped by inside ski edge of the other ski.

“Looking forward to my fourth year on a Dodge boot….the design and material create the perfect combination to deliver consistent flex and responsiveness.”
It's worth the investment. Go for it!
Sandpoint, Idaho, USA
Schweitzer Mountain Resort in Sandpoint, Idaho is my home mountain.
I got the boots and worked at padding the fit on the liner. When I sent the liners back to have a more professional padding job done, Bill said that I really needed the narrower shell so he swapped shells with me right away. At Mt. Hood over the 4th of July, the flex and performance of the boots stayed nice and consistent from the early morning hard surface through the noontime slush. Customer service, comfort and performance from the start- what's not to like?

They are a little more expensive to buy but when you consider the time you will own them before buying another pair of boots they are worth while. When you think about how much better you will ski it becomes a no brainer.
“The Dodge Boots are incredibly responsive and played a role in some of the best skiing I have done in years.”

They are precise, their light weight makes them a lot of fun and the customer service is very responsive, very knowledgeable and committed to making Dodge boots the best boots you have ever owned. A buyer can be assured that they will continue to receive very proficient and attentive support long after the sale.

These are a great skiing boot; they also are light weight and offer "custom" fitting.
Mt. Wachusett is my home base, but I ski all over the country, Canada and have been to Europe skiing.
- Necessary! or Revolutionary!
I know that you have changed your fit system, so getting them through the mail might be better now, but with regards to my experience, I would say that the best thing to do would be to go to factory and get them fit.
“The Dodge boot is the most comfortable performance boot I have ever used. It is noticeably lighter on your feet, and helps you go in to your turn faster.”

Crested Butte, CO, Aspen, Co
For my money Dodge is the best ski boot you can buy. I have not used the current fitting system. Therefore I cannot comment on it. From reading about it, the current system is much improved from the one I used.
I compete in two "beer" leagues, one at Waterville Valley and the other at Loon Mountain ( the Loonatics). I am also an active New England Masters participant so I race at a variety of areas with them.
I stress the performance, I never think about my boots when I am skiing because I have such confidence in their performance.
- Fabulous, Inspirational
Remember or imagine changing from leather to plastic boots (way back around 1970). Dodge boots are a more radical change, compared to normal high performance boots, than the switch from leather to plastic was.

Great boot, I don't think you could go wrong getting a pair. 30 day back satisfaction guarantee is not available on any other boot that I am aware of! What do you have to lose?
Stowe, VT USA
The boots have a very different feel. I like the analogy that conventional boots are like padded running shoes. Some of the energy that the skier expends is absorbed (and squandered) by the shoe. Dodge Boots are like bike shoes; designed to transmit the skiers' (bikers') energy to the ski (bike).
Toronto, ON Canada
They have really improved my skiing.
I felt the difference right away. I felt the difference just walking around in them. I felt it on the chairlift. And, of course, a HUGE difference on my skis especially in my fore/aft alignment. Also, at the end of the day my knees, ankles and other lower joints all felt great.

Don’t procrastinate another minute-go get the best boot you’ll ever experience!
Consider no other boot ever - and (do) not think at all and just buy Dodges ...

To get the softest flex available and use a different liner (Intuition etc...)
