Alfa Back Country Boot Boot Polar APS 2019/20
An extreme ski boot for extreme conditions and pioneering
An extremely comfortable BC-boot with an integrated gaiter that is reinforced with Kevlar on exposed areas. The boot has been developed specifically for expeditions and long journeys on skis in extremely cold conditions. Polar A/P/S also has a specially developed last that ensures you have room for liner. It also has extra insulation within the sole. The boot has been used on a wide range of expeditions, both to the North and South Poles, however, it is also suitable for simpler expeditions in cold conditions.
The boots are developed especially for use with liner (sold separately). We recommend buying the boot 2 sizes larger than normal for use with liner during extreme conditions. Certain snow/crust conditions are an extreme strain on the shoes materials, and with use under such conditions increased wear is expected.

SNOW CRUST PROTECTOR: Extra layers of full grain leather that protect the lower part of the boot, which is particularly prone to wear, especially in snow with an ice crust.
