A little Cubco tribute. From an earlier version to a couple of the last (Brute and Elite). Note the AFD's that were way ahead of their time. Back when leather boots ruled the land, the boot plates (seen on the wood pieces) made for a much more consistent interface with the binding.

Ever wonder where LOOK's PX Racing came from? Well this mid 80's example should provide the answer! (LOOK 99)

How about the ESS alpine touring binding, a licensed LOOK Nevada copy toe piece with their SU-Matic heel.

Rosemount boots. This standard black model came out right around 1967. One with adjustable forward lean came along in 1969. The Blue/red version was later, maybe 72ish. It had the adjustable forward lean and a higher back. Fiberglass shell and metal hinged, they were a skiing engineers vision. I always appreciated what they tried to do, this was still the leather boot era!

My wife had two Obermeyer jackets over the years one was a two tone tan and brown that was down fill and very warm. The second was royal blue with matching stretch bib ski pants, OMG they made her look so good. Sorry no photos of that ski outfit.
