Big races, 10,000 vertical foot days, and fast ski mountaineering missions - the Mezzalama boot is built with these adventures in mind. Borrowing some of the DNA from Dynafit's higher-end lineup, the Mezzalama is a multi-functional boot for those with quick intentions. This version is made with a carbon/grilamid shell and a grilamid/glass cuff so that these boots can ascend like a butterfly and descend like a bee. The same Race Lock found on the DNA also inhabits the Mezzalama, meaning that transitions will be a breeze. The Twistfit system provides an individualized fit and helps keep the heel locked so you can focus on not rag-dolling on the descent. The Dynafit Mezzalama boot helps you take care of business, no matter how ambitious.
- Race Lock system allows for simultaneous engagement of ski mode and cuff tightening.
- Twistfit allows for an individualized fit by dialing down a plate over top of your foot.
- Carbon infused Grilamid shell is tough, light, and punchable.
- Master Step inserts provide a solid interface with quick step-in.
- Pomoca rubber sole helps with traction on those icy booters.
Update 2022/23 - The opening beneath the gaiter has been widened for easier entry and the attachment of the gaiter to the lower has been reinforced.
* Sizing Note: The Mezzalama boot utilizes "race sizing," meaning that unlike other Dynafit boots the shell splits on the half-size, so 25.5 and 26 will have the same lower shell, for example. You will want closer to a one-finger fit behind your heel when shell-fitting the boot due to the thin liner.

Questions & Reviews
Would these rock the backland 85UL?
Looking for a light but still capabel setup.
Had the alien RS and some kastle 82 tx skies before.
I have a pair of size 28.0 Palau Tour Lite Pro Liners in my old PDGs right now. Would they be a good fit for the Mezzalama boot, and if so, what shell size would be best?
They're a bit thicker than the stock Mezzalama liner, so you might want to consider sizing up shells to a 29.
The Mezzalama lower shell can be punched. However, as with other race boots, working with plastic this thin must be done with care. The shell can be moved a small amount, but nothing major.
I need new boots so I’m looking for Dynafit or Scarpa Alien…second question : is there any Intuition liners that will fit in my “old” PDG since I cannot stand the old liner -_- ?
Oh and finally if I buy, but the fit is incorrect, can I return the boots?
Lots of questions. Using our Boot finder will be good place to start.
Yes, the new DNA/Mezzalama have a narrow fit. And sizing tends to run a bit short. The Aliens also have a narrow fit and sizing similar to the old PDG boots.
The Scarpa Alien liners would fit the PDG boots, size 30.
Good call, I’ve hit the boot finder.
Really looking forward to upgrading, but which of the new two racing dynafit boots (dna/mezzalama) are the stiffest? Or are they expected to be equal?
(all things considered, carbon + thin liner vs noncarbon + thicker mezzalama liner)
Great question! The DNA will be stiffer than the Mezzalama due to the carbon cuff. But that being said, the Mezzalama is no slouch and will still ski quite well for a boot in this weight class.
