Featured Black Diamond Ski Boot – Stiletto Telemark Boot. Click on the image below to check’em out at!

Black Diamond’s top-of-the-line freeheeler, the Women’s Stiletto Telemark Ski Boot combines a female-specific fit and killer performance for hardcore she-rippers. The 100-flex Pebax shell provides plenty of torsional stiffness, while the alpine-style overlap design and MidStiff bellows create a responsive yet forgiving forward flex. Black Diamond tailored this boot’s cuff opening, rear spoiler, and liner specifically for a women’s foot but gave it an aggressive stance angle for girls who charge. The Stiletto’s mechanically integrated ski/walk mode doubles as the customizable forward lean adjustment, offering three settings covering eight degrees to suit a variety of ski styles.

Bottom Line: For freeheeling shred-bunnies who walk the walk.
