Aventure Nordique also has Andrew Rifugio in stock which is pretty much the same as the old Ultra. these are the best quality boots I've seen. You could return them for the next size up or down if necessary

Fisheater thanks for the offer but if I pay $300 for a pr of boots they need to fit or be very close with minimal stretching if needed. I have 2pr of Asolo Extremes that fit like a glove so I'm good for a bit.

I’m talking $50, if you are in Michigan sometime. There is also a possibility that I may ski East this season. The Alico Ski March is a bit heavier than what you have. The sole is probably the same stiff sole as an Alico Double. It has a quality Amfibio leather upper, Thinsulite insulation. It is an ankle high boot for range of motion, with a stiff sole that offers considerable power transfer to the ski.

Take a look for yourself. Generally if they fit, you’ll find a spot in your quiver for them. I like mine. Best of luck, I did see the Rifugios on Adventure Nordique, it is a really nice boot.

Uhhhh love Ultras......my foot size is 9 and a half but would use Ultras in the ten range and do little kiddie thinger....Thick wool socks.....Ultras are awesome!!!!!! Total flex....soft ohhhhhhh.....and if your in powder totally comfortable.....and the balls of your feet feel like they are skiing the snow unhinged....Soooooo good....Would get those Rufffiggio boots but for the first time in forever have three sets of lace up's....Gonna probably ski with one busted up North Rim (Andrews) and an old brown two buckle Rossi....If I go to a ski area....TM

everyone on this website should have a pair of Ski March's! :mrgreen: :mrgreen: You're talking about a boot that would cost $400 in a store if it was a regular commercial product. I think I paid $78 w/ international shipping.
