Specialized Defroster Boots

A decent pair of winter boots is long overdue from the (other) Big S. In all other fields, they rival both Shimano and Sidi in popularity and (for me at least) usually exceed both in ergonomics and fit. It’s good to see that they’ve done their homework and not just come out with a slightly less vented racing shoe or DH boot
