i’m selling a pair of preowned SCARPA alien lightweight ski touring or skimo boots in a mondo size 25 (womens 8 or mens 7 per scarpa’s size chart) with box
boots retailed for $800
boots were worn only for a few 1 hour tuesday night skimo races at brighton. all buckles/straps/boa system is in good working order. no funky smells with the liner. i’m selling because i bought the wrong size.
The SCARPA Alien Boots employ some radical technology to obtain a race weight at a reasonable price. With walkability similar to hiking boots and skiability similar to heavier kit, the Aliens are quickly becoming a go-to boot for skimo racers and light and fast tourers.
SCARPA designed these with a more comfortable last than other lightweight boots, and used a BOA closure system instead of a buckle in the forefoot. This allows you to get a precise fit over your instep without consulting a boot doctor with a heat gun. The laced upper buckle system is integrated into the walk/ski mode switch so you can transition between uphill and downhill modes in one simple step. Once pointed downhill, the Alien Propulsion Tech frame provides a sturdy platform for driving skis harder than you would think for a 2 pound boot.
Flexible waterproof sheathing around the ankle helps keep snow off the liner.
A single-throw buckle so you can switch quickly between walk and ski modes.
Adjustable forward lean allows you to choose your stance at either 9 or 13 degrees.
Full 60 degree range of motion in walk mode lets you actually run uphill (or down if the need arises).
Moldable Intuition linerswrap securely around your foot with a BOA closure system.
Vibram “UFO” soles are the perfect ride for Aliens, providing 360 degrees of durable traction on sketchy terrain.
Secure yet comfortable 99mm of forefoot last.
