Ok... Let's see if someone can help me out.
I have recently discovered Northwave boots, and I am blown away by the quality of these things. I stumbled into West Coast Sports here in Vancouver, and tried on the Caliber, Domain, and Decade SL boots.
I finally bought a pair of Decade SL's... They were as comfortable as Salomon boots for my feet (and that says A LOT!), but the price is easier to swallow.
I was also VERY impressed with the T-Track ratcheting system on the Caliber, BOA can't even come close! But, the Calibers weren't the stiff boot I wanted, so I passed on them.
At any rate, I went home and found their High end T-Track boot... It's actually called the T-TRACK, and it's EXACTLY what I'm looking for in a boot - stiff for freeriding, and a BOA-esque speed ratchet system that actually HOLDS. Looks like this:
I contacted the guy at West Coast about getting a pair, and he said they didn't produce them this year due to low order volume?!? I didn't believe it for a second, so I emailed all the addresses I could find, and tracked down the USA distributor phone number (not easy).
They said that the boot had indeed been produced this year, but they had no more... Although he did not sound very sure of himself. Either these boots sell as fast as they are made, or the Store owner at West Coast was right, because I can't find them anywhere. I saw one pair on Ebay, but not my size.
Looking for a US 10.5/Mondo 28.5
If anyone knows a retailer that carries these, or has a new pair they want to sell, please contact me.. Otherwise I'll be making a pre-order to West Coast Sports and waiting for the next 6 months for them to ship in... LOL
