I had two pairs of Caber race boots in 1974. One was similar to a Heschung boot without the goofy buckle system but with a stitched sole. The got too soft early in the season and even bolstering them with fiberglass didn't help so much.
So Caber sent me a pair that were single-piece molded in what may as well have been concrete. They were great and skied very well.
Does anyone have a photo of either of these boots from back when the earth was cooling.
When I returned to skiing in 2002 after a long absence, the only boots available to me were a pair of Cabers that a brother-in-law had abandoned at our house many years before. They turned out to be a little too long, but too narrow. To compensate, I swapped in the liners that I saved from my exploded Nordica Slaloms. I have no idea what inspired me to save those liners, but I'm glad I did. The Nordica liners solved the length problem but I had to suffer through the width thing for about 5 seasons before I finally could afford new boots.
