The Dobermann just keeps getting better. This race-bred, narrow-fit family of models has a new shell shape that extends from the top of the line down to the softest 90 flex. The new lower shell is shapelier and hugs the foot’s contours closely. Testers called the 110 one of the snuggest of the narrow class-a great option for lower volume feet and, in this case, lighter weight or less aggressive skiers. While the letters “GP” are an homage to Nordica Grand Prix lineage, they might also stand for “great price.” The 110 churned out a best-in-class power-to-price ratio among our “Soft Value” entries at the test. Testers cited a solid yet lively feel underfoot. The flex feels smooth and progressive against the shin. The new toe-box shape offers a welcome increase in up-front toe room, but the rest of the boot still fits as closely as past Dobermanns. It tapers quite a bit at the navicular on the medial side and styloid process on the lateral side. Fortunately, those are two of the easiest locations for your bootfitter to grind or punch (which will be the case for many feet, testers forecast).
