I bought these socks last season and used them everyday.....including during Tuesday night racing with my snug race boots. These were a total GAME-CHANGER for me last year. I have frozen my feet so many times over the decades that my toes are severely effected by cold weather. Unlike other heated socks and chemical toe-warmers, the 6.0 socks barely take up more room than a conventional ultra-thin ski sock. The heating element only surrounds the toe box, and this is the only area where you may need to ...

Since my size just recently arrived at Skimo, I have only used these a few times. My other boots include the original Alien 1.0 and the TLT7 carbonio. I bought these because my Alien 1.0's have had a fruitful life of racing and touring, and are now allocated to a training and rock boot, as they are getting a bit sloppy. Here is my comparison of the new Alien 1.1 to the excellent aforementioned boots.... Alien 1.1 vs 1.0: The new boot is stiffer (at least compared to my well-used originals)!! They ski ...

Every so often the sole strap will collect snow in wetter conditions. It’s not really much of a problem and nothing an occasional pole bang to the boot won’t correct.

I get cold feet....just ask JBO before any significant Skimo.co purchase. These definitely help. Simple, light, easy to put on and take off, and during the winter I always have them on or have them in my pack. In my experience, I think the stated sizing is more geared toward traditional alpine boots. I wear a size 25 in the aliens and tlt7. I originally bought the mediums, which were way too big, but fit perfectly for the same sized alpine boots. I’m not sure JBO’s boot size, but I recall he borrowed ...

The Dyneema stretches a bit initially, so it takes a few adjustments to fit securely to a specific boot. Once the Dyneema is broken in, it doesn't continue to stretch. These fit the Scarpa Alien 1.0's perfectly.
