I purchased my Strukturas from Backcountry.com and have been pleased with them. They are not the most comfortable boots for my feet, however they do fit well. Mine are size 14 and my feet are somewhat wide. After skiing them, it feels like the arch on my left foot is being constricted by the shell of the boot.

On the plus side however, the liners are very nice, and the buckle system provides for a nice roomy fit on ascent and a tight secure fit on descent. The ski/walk lever works fairly well, but a lot of flex remains, even when the lever is locked in the ski position.

My bindings are Fritschi Freerides and the boots work great with them. Snow on the soles of the boots is not a problem and the boots walk well by themselves, thanks to a rubber outsole and generous flex.

If you're looking for a cheaper alternative to Garmont and Scarpa, the Struktura's provide good comfort and performance for a much cheaper price.
