Choose your own adventure.
Any old schmoe can cruise down some groomers and point at a bird, but for those who want to do a little of their own exploring, there's the Fischer Offtrack 5 BC My Style Women's Touring Boot. Designed specifically to fit ladies' feet, the Offtrack is perfect for driving metal-edged nordic touring skis, with a stiff non-slip BC sole, injected heel cap, and an ASCS ankle-support cuff to provide plenty of support for your backcountry adventures. Fischer hooked up an integrated gaiter, sealed zipper, and hook-and-loop cuff closure to keep snow and water from cramping your style and lined the whole package with a combination of heat-trapping Thinsulate, soft synthetic, and antimicrobial Cleansport NXT. to keep your feet warm and minimally smelly.

This boot is good for people with chronically cold feet, who ski straight ahead, on flat terrain. I wanted a boot for breaking trail - anywhere - and taking some turns along the way. Not this boot. I wear a 9.5-10 women's shoe - the 42 fit fine. Extremely cushy and warm, perhaps too much- that is why I wear socks, after all - but not a lot of lateral stability regardless of how much I tighten up laces. It just felt 'mushy', even in a snowplow. Plastic structure coming up from the back doesn't seem to have a purpose - I certainly didn't feel it enhanced the stability of the boot or my ankle. Gearhead was helpful, but really missed the mark with understanding what I wanted a boot for. Finally have snow; wore them twice; past the 30 days; company won't take them back for credit.
How do these fit- true to size or small/large? Thanks
