I was talking to Kirk from HMK a couple days ago about those boots. He has no canadian distributors yet. A couple of Ontario race teams use them though. He said I could order them direct from him . It says to order one size bigger than actual shoe size. Any opinions on this?
He did say that, I am an 8 but he insisted on me getting 9..Now that I have them thank god I got the 9...I ordered them direct from him as well..They aren't cheap however...I paid 169 u.s which when converted and shipped to canada it came to $301.00... :doh:
Those do look pretty cool. But I was told by a few diffrent people that have used there Boarding boots that they sucked in really cold weather at speed..I guess those van's are pretty good if you have used them the last 2 seasons..These Highmark's are good to like -50 or so...thats what the claim anyway..They have a hard back like a ski boot for wicked ankle support when landing those not so perfect jumps :doh:
Good.He is coming by my office today, think I might dog it and go to the mall and get something to eat with him..I broke my foot last year wearing sorels...I was run over after I had a huge get off going about 120 km/h..This guy on a F111 couldn't stop and My foot got Caught up in his track...(OUCH)...The boot was torn to shreads(along with my foot)...I am looking forward to having boots with a little armour in them...I ride with armour on the street, Guess I should on the trail too!
i was looking for hmk's at the snowmobileshow in toronto,i wanted to compare them to the klim boots,but there were no hmk's there so i bought the klims,the hmk's are a very nice looking boot i hope you have good luck with them this winter
I tried on the HMKs at haydays really liked them. Definetly go a size bigger. Couldn't find the Klim booth I'm sure it was there just eluded me like everthing else there that place is huge. Anyway I ended up buying my brothers snowboarding boots from last year. There barely used and are almost exactly like the HMKs. I tried on several different boarding boots and be careful cause some really wouldn't make good sledding boots.
The Klim is an excellent boot, I looked for them first as well...As i was researching this stuff I found out that most the top racers use HMK, almost all the guys in the Slednecks/braap video's use 'em so I figured they would be good enough for me!
