New for 2007 is the Head Dream Thang 8 ski boot. It is a boot that I feel comfortable selling to intermediates and advanced skiers on a budget wanting the best balance of comfort and performance. Also I feel the Dreamthang 8 would make a great boot for a teen. Being women's specific like other boots on the market, the Dreamthang 8 has a lower cuff to accommodate the a woman's lower calf muscle and a softer flex than that of a men's boot for the respective ability level. Unlike some women's boots out there, the Dreamthang 8 has a lower shell and liner that is made specific around a woman's foot. Flex rating: 70.
The Dreamthang 8 fit is low to medium. The forefoot is described by Head as "WP" which is on the wide side of narrow or the narrow side of medium depending how you look at it. The instep height is fairly generous. The heel is described best as snug. The Head Dreamthang 8 uses the Heatfit liner that helps customize the fit.
