The opinion of Aventure Nordique
Rifugio are Nordic Backcountry Skiboots made in Italy in Montebelluna. These are "traditional" telemark boots. The leather has a lot of advantages: it is comfortable, breathable, durable and over time adapts to the shape of your feet ... It is probably, for all these reasons, that many skiers return to the leather after having tried shoes made of synthetic materials.
Technically, the Rifugio are made of Anfibio leather and a 75 mm Vibram sole. The Norwegian sewn makes the connection between the sole and the stem, which is a guarantee of quality. Inside the Sympatex membrane (equivalent Gore-Tex) is waterproof and breathable.
The lacing system includes 6 loops allowing a good support of the feet in the shoes. The rigidity of the leather at the back completes this maintenance and in the end, the Rifugio offer good control of the skis.
