The attractively priced Proton 12 makes use of modern bi-injection manufacturing techniques to build a highly anatomical shell with a nicely contoured heel and relaxed-fit toe box. It’s snugger fitting than most Dalbellos, and four of our most aggressive testers gave the Proton top marks. They found it exceptionally easy to settle into the boot’s balance point and were impressed with its strength and versatility. “Dalbello stepped up,” said Hoffmann. “Nice look, solid steering and a secure fit around the foot.”
