Spring is on its way and Colorado's biggest moisture month of the year is promising us a great spring ski season. With all that excitement in the air, this is the best time to announce our latest style!  


It's the moment we've all been waiting for- OUR NEW SP-LZ IS NOW AVAILABLE FOR PRE-ORDER! We have been working hard to perfect the SP-LZ since October 2014, and we are proud to finally present it to you!

I know what you're thinking- why are you changing the shoes?! They are perfect!!

We know how much you all love the SP-L3, so we've kept the shoe itself the same- same fit, roomy toe box, zero drop and high quality materials that SOM is known for. And of course, they are still locally made in our factory in beautiful Montrose, CO, USA!

What we've changed is the lacing system. Instead of fumbling with shoe laces every time you wear your shoes, we've added our Single Laced Quick Fit lacing system (patent pending). Adjust your laces when you put them on for the first time, then simply use the zipper to take them off and put them back on. Want to adjust your laces? Easy- just pull the knot free, retie it, and you're off! 

The only other thing that is different about our new SP-LZ model is the stripes, which are currently available in Sneffels Grey or Columbine Purple. In order to produce this new style, we are taking pre-orders until March 20th. If there is enough demand for the SP-LZ, we will start regular production after March 30th! Our first 25 pre-orders will be shipped by March 30th.

Be a part of our test market and take advantage of our early-bird price of just $118. After our first 25 pairs are sold, or March 20th (whichever comes first), the regular price will be $138. Be sure to tell all your friends!

We look forward to hearing your feedback about our new shoes- we have a feeling you are going to LOVE them! We always welcome your questions, comments, and suggestions- please send us an email at or connect with us on any of our social media platforms.
