My first boots that I bought with my own money as a kid to get out of the lace up boots where Trappeur on sale, because they didn't have the foam kit anymore for them. My solution was a couple pair of extra socks (give me a break on this as I was 12-13) as my foot grew I shed a pair of socks. This was my start in stiff boots.
Trappeur Comps were my first good pair of ski boots. I bought them with my own $ when I was 15 or 16 which would have been around '72-73. Loved the backwards Trappeur molded into the sole that left Trappeur imprints when you walked in the snow. They lasted me through my ski bumming days and were really good boots that fit me well.
I had those as a teenager. Ok, given they were at least 1shell size too big, they were still incredibly heavy. That metal rod in the back was thick. Only an in shape young person could deal with them. I mean my next boot years later, the Lange Tii, felt very llight. Sad thing is that Trappeur was my first decent boot.
I think the Trappeurs met their demise boot hitching near Stratton one snowy night doing like 50mph. The soles were trashed. I will say they were stable at speed.
