Over 50 Years of Innovation

Since 1969, when Mel Dalebout founded our company, DaleBoot has been singularly focused on manufacturing high performance, custom made ski boots; leading the industry in terms of innovation, with 14 patents issued in our name.

For example, have you ever heard of or skied in a foam injected liner? Did you know you that you were skiing in a DaleBoot patent? Patent number 3,581,412, which covers both the two part non-expanding urethane elastomer and the gas expanding urethane foam, was issued to DaleBoot back on June 1st 1971.

But we left that technology behind years ago as better materials became more widely available allowing us to produce more comfortable, better fitting, and warmer boot liners.  Today, our liner options, in combination with a properly sized shell, and fitted precisely for you, work together to enhance blood flow, maintain consistent foot temperature, and greatly improve both overall fit and performance.

Throughout our history, innovation and passion has separated us from all of the of other ski boot manufacturers. DaleBoot’s innovation is driven by our commitment to solving very real problems people experience while skiing.  While the other manufacturers focus on marketing, and volume, our focus is on you, the skier; to improve your performance, fit and comfort.
