The best AT boot
The Zzerctor 3.

Now don’t get me wrong. I love my Dynafit “Green Machines” (Zzero 4 CF) for their amazing balance of lightweight and stiffness, and I’m growing to really like my Black Diamond Factors for their unbelievable skiing performance and great walk-mode…and as a (former?) competitive rando racer and backcountry skier who doesn’t mind hiking for miles on dry trails in his AT boots…I see the benefit of having flexible bellows at the toe.  So, in a day and age when we can make cars run on bacon fat, wouldn’t it be great to have all of these benefits in one package?  Stiff and powerful, but also very lightweight and with a walk-mode with a big range of motion…and some bellows to make those long walks a bit more bearable.  I call it the Zzerctor 3.

Do you dream about it too?!
