Dalbello Panterra 120 ID Ski Boots

Italian ski boot impresarios Dalbello are a bit rakish to be associated with 'the cowboys from hell, but damn if they don't make a boot worthy of a heavy metal moniker.

Stiffer than Arnold's bicep 💪 and snugger than a boot full of Nickelodeon slime, the Panterra 120 also features a switchable ski vs. walk mode, toeing the line between performance and comfort. Get to the powdah! 🎿
