An update to the venerable Spectre boots is more than just color. But not much more. La Sportiva stiffened the boots by around 5% with strengthening ribs in the lower shell below the cuff. The impressive walk mode (for 4 buckle boots) stays the same and you get some bonus power transfer to your skis. The Italians had enough of boring black and decided to make the 2.0 with a signature color splash. The Spectre 2.0 is still the most touring-friendly beef boot on the market.

Questions & Reviews
Shell size for your T1 is 24.5/25, the Spectre is 25/25.5. So the Spectre will be a tad longer. With a size 7.5 shoe, you should definitely be in a size 25/25.5.
