View Full Version : UPS boots

I received some feedback on UPS World Cup boots, which are available in Canada. How do they rate against the Deeluxe Lemans, price would be about the same for me(not counting duty). I didn't like the look of the bindings available from the supplier compared to the TD2s.

TD2s are definitely better bindings than the SnowPros. The SnowPros are good, but TD2s and Cateks are the bomb when it comes to bindings.
You should check on availability of the UPS boots. I've heard that they've had problems with a supplier of buckles and the shipment of new ones is delayed. Ask Dan Yoja. Last I heard he couldn't give a firm date for arrival, but it could be as late as January (might be as early as December). If you need boots for December, you might not have a lot of choices.
Check out the reviews here on Bomber. I found the Raichle AF (same as the Deluxe) didn't fit my foot well. I have a wide foot with a fairly high instep. The UPS fit much better. I also really like real buckles, rather than the ratchet thingy. If you have a wide foot, the Head boots might be a better option for you. Bomber and Startingate sell those.
If you can handle the delay, the UPS boots are great. I like mine a lot (especially with a booster strap on them).

Not to get away from the original question, which was about the UPS boots, but I own a pair of SnowPro's LTD's I bought from Dan and they've been great. I've yet to ride TD's, but can vouch for the performance of the SnowPro LTD's. I'm looking to upgrade this year to Step-ins and am swayed by the price of the SnowPro's but am still doing my research on TD2's, F2's and the like. I've thought of purchasing the UPS boots as well, but have heard from a few other sources about the "breakage" or "reliability" issues with them. I rode Raichles 2 seasons ago and they were o.k., but now wear some Oxygen's I swiped off of e-bay for $30.00 brand new!!! Problem is the heels are not swappable so I'll have to get new boots when/if I switch to step-ins. Good luck on your decision,
