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.

* 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.

Question from Marc andre
 
Hi, just try the 26.5 and the liners are to long for my feet. I also try the 25.5 and it’s a way to short! I never tried the 26! Is it the same shell of the 26.5? Is the liners are shorter? My feet are 25.8 mondo. What do you think? Thanks

Answer from Ian C
 
Hello Marc Andre, the 26 is the same shell size as the 25.5 in these boots! A heat mold can help even if the liners feel too small initially.

Question from Robert A
 
How does this boot compare to the Alien RS / Alien 1.1? Could it drive a ski over 90 cm?
2/1/2022
Answer from Ian C
 
Hi Robert, the Mezzalama is the softest of the boots you listed! The Dynafit DNA and Alien 1.1 are a closer comparison performance-wise. Meanwhile, the Alien RS is probably the best pairing for skis over 90mm, with the most substantial tongue and front cuff.

Question from Travis
 
How does the twistfit feel/work? Does it really tighten around your heel?
11/22/2021
Answer from Brett S
 
Thanks for your question, Travis. The twistfit system is placed higher on the boot with a more aggressive angle, which is more conducive for heel hold than other boots that directly tension on top of the foot. In addition, the cable tensions a plastic plate, which is similar in principle to the instep buckle on the Scarpa Maestrale. Overall, it works well to snug the heel but won't make an inappropriately sized heel pocket work. Please let us know if you have any other questions!

Question from chris cawley
 
Recently I tried Hojis and Speeds and found the fit on each to be vastly different. I found the Hojis' to fit my TLT 5 archetype feet quite a bit better than Speeds, to my chagrin. Which of these other two Dynafits will the Mezzalama fit more like?
11/5/2021
Answer from Brett S
 
Thanks for your question, Chris. The Mezzalama will fit more similarly to the Speed than the Hoji. Please let us know if you have any other questions!

Question from Felix
 
Hi!

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)
10/12/2021
Answer from Will M
 
Hey Felix,

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.

Question from Jeffrey Cole
 
I'm a 27.0 in the Scarpa F1LT -- would I go with the 26.5/27 or the 27.5/28 in the Mezzalama?
9/25/2021
Answer from jbo
 
Hi Jeffrey, you should still be a 27.0 in this boot. It's a bit more cramped but going up a whole size would likely be sloppy for you.

Question from Ada
 
Nice boots.. like Alien RS i thats right? Have you already had them in your hands ?(feets) :D I'm curious what flex is in these shoes..
9/16/2021
Answer from Will McD
 
Hey Ada, we have not yet received the Mezzalamas, but they are similar to the new DNA which has a carbon upper cuff and the same lowers. We have had the chance to try the DNA on. The Mezzalama is more targeted to the racer and speed tourers who use sub 80mm waisted skis whereas the Alien RS could confidently ski skis up to 100mm underfoot. It does share similar features but will be a very different boot and less robust.
