My feet have a wide forefoot (4 inches or 10.2 cm across), a small bunion on the side, a sixth toe bump on the other and a semi-high arch. Finding ski boots that fit my foot and ski well has become sort of a scavenger hunt adventure for me. Am I the only one who goes to ski shops to try different boots looking for that magic cinderella slipper? I have been doing that a lot less these days, given the pandemic, but also because I think I have finally found my current version of that mystical slipper.
In Lou’s Hoji identical twins, he outlined a deeper dive for Hoji Pro vs Hoji Free (130 flex). This post will provide a first look into the difference between the Hoji Free (110 flex) and the Women’s Hoji Pro Tour (also 110 Flex).
Prior to switching to the Dynafit Hoji Pro Tour, I spent six years skiing in Scarpa Gea RS. I loved the Scarpas but it was time for a change. One main drawback of the Scarpas was their ski-walk mechanism which commonly would get constricted with snow. Looking through other options, I was very intrigued by the Hoji walk/ski mode system, which is what led me to the Dynafit Hoji Pro Tour. I was psyched on the 103.5 mm last! Only a few (or many) trips to the ski shop for small punches and my feet felt the happiest they have ever been.
