Dalbello IL MORO or RAMPAGE WITH GOLD I.D. LINER
Hi! My toes hurts pretty much when I've been out riding a day now, so I'm considering a new pair of shoes. Do you have any advices if I should get new or not? I know it's mostly up to myself, but it would be great with some comments.
I'll continue with the Dalbello's, I've been mad happy with them.
But which one should I get:
(silver I.D. liners follows in them)
+ gold I.D. liners
The price will be pretty much the same, but the Il Moros will be slightly more expensive. Nothing to talk about.
What will be the difference between them? Is the Il Moro a better shell etc.
From what I understand the rampage is a stiffer boot and has a better liner due to it having not tongue and rapping around your leg unlike the il mora which is sofer with a flex of 80-110 I think and has a traditional liner. To be honest I have some of last seasons il mora's and love them I would have liked to try the wrap around liner but didn't have the choice, if you can I would try and get the il mora if your doing more park and general stuff or the rampage if you want a stiffer boot.
hate to be an ass.. but just go to www.dalbellosports.com
, it's all there.

Ok, you apparently did not read what I asked about. I can choose between the IL MORO which have the silver ID liners or a rampage which I'll have to buy a pair of gold ID liners for, because they come with bad liners.
yea man, the liners are softer in the silvers, and firmer in the golds.
as for the boots themselves, the il moro has a very deep soft flex, tho they definitely stiffen up with the other tongues thou. the plastic is a bit softer in the shell than the rampages, and the upper strap slides smoother than the rampages.
so, the rampages would be sick for freeriding, but are not gonna have the flex or cush of a park boot. the il moros on the other hand are nasty park boots, and can still be set up to ride everything pretty damn well. i have owned both boots, and am way happier with my il moros. just depends on where your priotities are

i just got il moro's and love wearing them around my house. the ratchet system works amazing and provides for a very smooth and even flex pattern. also they are super light boots. i got mine heat molded and they feel very nice. also, if you're worried about them being to soft, they do come with an extra, stiffer, tongue that you can put in. i kept mine with the softer one though.
the gold liners are a little better I think.
i rode the rampages last year with the standard furry liners, they were great.
this year i went up to the krypton pro (2007-08 model) with the gold ID liners, as well as dropping half a size and WOW awesome boots. my foot is still too narrow for them, but i haven't found anything narrower that doesn't have super mushy flex, so i'll deal. keep in mind you can keep the buckles a bit looes on a stiff boot, but you cant really stiffen up a mushy one
