So today I have a very interesting story. I'm sure that many newschoolers are aware of The Good Company and the insane steez they have. So a few weeks ago I noticed a string of instagram photos showing that they were in Boston, and since assachusetts isn't exactly the skiing hub of the world I was pretty excited that they were in my home state. I identified where they were as the Quincy Quarries but I didn't want to be a stalker and go over there to see them so I just chilled out and I soon forgot about it, until yesterday. My brother, his friend, and I went to the quarries yesterday because they wanted to go rock climbing and I figured I should just go with them. We pull into the parking lot and I see some ski boots hanging on the the powerline, que?
I see they are a 3 piece boot and I recognize them as nordicas. After a half an hour battle to get them down using a stick and the roof of the car we gave up and went into the quarry. We went home but I knew those boots did not deserve to rot away on a powerline, so we went back to save them. Today using a 10 ft pvc pipe we flipped those mofos off of that line and set them free. I confirmed them as Nordica The Ace 3 Stars, they were wet and pretty scuffed but I've cleaned them up.
Now who would throw boots that retail at $599 onto a powerline...?
My Theory: Pro skier/ swagmaster Dale Talkington (sponsored by Nordica) was setting up a feature to film for The Good Company. Being the East Coast it was probably raining and he was getting frustrated.
This photo shows the struggle of setting up a feature and puts Dale at the exact location where the boots were. At the end of the day he raged from anger and hucked his nice boots onto a power line.

Can we get Dale himself to confirm who's boots these were? If anybody wants to buy these gems, real pieces of american history, just pm me
