Whether on the race course, carving corduroy, or arcing perfect turns on hardpack, Nordica’s Dobermann 5 Soft LC has a thirst for speed. For decades, the Dobermann has been the boot of choice for World Cup racers and discerning skiers who hold nothing back. The Dobermann 5 Soft LC is steeped in this rich heritage, yet it’s been completely reimagined for even greater performance. Armed with a soft flex, lower cuff, and a 96 mm width, it pairs outstanding power and control with all-day comfort, making it perfect for lighter or shorter racers, up-and-coming junior athletes, and demanding skiers who want to unleash their full potential. Shaped by years of research and refinement, this athlete-driven design provides a more anatomically correct fit, delivering exceptional precision and response to boost your confidence. The Dobermann 5 Soft LC’s shell maximizes the transmission of energy while its Racing Spine offers unrivaled support to create a smooth forward flex that readily absorbs the terrain. And thanks to the streamlined design of the boot’s liner and shell, the Dobermann 5 Soft LC features a reduced length that further enhances your performance.

Dobermann PU Shell
To revolutionize the Dobermann collection, Nordica started with the boot's shell. By creating the most anatomical shape possible for both the shell's interior and exterior, they were able to reduce the boots volume significantly–especially in the midfoot and heel area. This maximizes precision and response to further boost the Dobermanns performance.
Nordica carefully analyzed and then reworked the heel of the shell, reducing the overall length of the sole–regardless of the boot size–by 5mm. In addition to enhancing the stability of the shell, this reduced sole length enables a ski to flex more naturally and better reach its full potential. And by further refining the shell’s design and construction, they made the boot more responsive, allowing for quicker edge-to-edge transitions. For this fifth generation of the Dobermann collection, they also enhanced the interface between the shell and cuff, increasing the boot’s forward lean to boost control and response when transitioning between turns.
- ANATOMICAL SHAPE
- NARROWER ON THE WAIST
- BOOT’S VOLUME REDUCED
- FORWARD LEAN INCREASED
Dobermann PU Cuff
Consequently, Nordica didn’t just revolutionize the Dobermann’s shell they also reimagined its cuff. Using Tri-Force construction, they created a cuff that showcases both an incredibly strong spine and a smooth flex that can readily be customized to control the delivery of power. This amplifies support and accelerates response, allowing you to unleash your full potential. Yet they didn’t overlook aesthetics. Stemming from the complementary densities of plastics used in the shell, the red eyes–contrasted against the boot’s black shell–give a nod to the Dobermann’s namesake. Fast and fearless, this Dobermann holds nothing back.

Dobermann 5 Race Laced Liner LC
Concealed inside the revolutionary shell, this all-new liner is equally essential in amplifying the Dobermann’s legendary performance. Armed with newly patented technology, Heel Link showcases a band stitched at the back of the liner heel and connected directly to the lacing system. Securing the laces tightens the liner in all directions, anchoring your heel back into the heel pocket and perfectly cradling the contours of your foot. This design enables Nordica to use a thinner material for the liner and create a shorter overall profile for the boot, reducing its sole length by 5 mm. The liner’s thinner upper enhances sensitivity to create a more responsive boot while a slim Velcro closure ensures the upper part of the liner moves in tandem with your tibia. And thanks to the lower liner’s strategic lacing system, the boot cradles the contours of your foot without creating pressure points. To allow you to further customize the Dobermann’s fit and performance, the liner includes a spoiler with an interlocking, two-piece design. Use both spoiler components for maximum forward lean or remove the auxiliary insert to reduce it. Better than ever, the new Heel Link Liner is as fast as it is fearless.
ISO 5355 Standard Soles
Pairing convenience with exceptional performance, we developed an entirely new sole for the Dobermann 5. Thanks to this new design, it’s no longer necessary to mill the boot’s soles. With a height tailored to the ISO 5355 standard, the Dobermann soles are ready to click into your bindings straight out of the box. And to promote an intuitive, uniform approach to sizing, we’ve abandoned the traditional UK sizing system in favor of the Mondopoint standard.
- SOLES 5mm SHORTER (ALL SIZES)
- SOLID SOLES - ISO 5355 STANDARD
- NEW LIFTERS. 3mm - 4mm - 5mm
High & Low Wedges
They also redeveloped the Dobermann sole to perfectly match the boot’s new internal shape. Each model comes with both 23 mm and 25 mm wedges that can readily be customized by your local bootfitter.
- NEW WEDGE (LOW - HIGH): LOW (23mm) HIGH(25mm)
Especially stiff, Nordica’s Bi-Injected Spine uses two different stiffnesses of plastic to deliver unparalleled support and a smooth forward flex that absorbs the terrain.
- The specially-designed spine makes recoveries easier.
- Bi-injected design offers support while also providing a smooth forward flex.
- Customizable flex allows you to control the transmission of energy to maximize response.
Infrared Technology has been developed by Nordica with the aim of customizing the boots in the most sensitive point for the skiers. Once you identify the pressure points, you just need to heat the area trough the infrared lamp. In a second step, apply the suction cup to neutralize the pressure in few minutes. Lastly, remove the cup and replace the liner: it's time to jump into the boots and enjoy the ride.
- Precise custom fit
- Releases pressure from sensitive areas & bunions
ADJUSTABLE LINER TONGUE
Adjustable tongue is a velcro flap, positioned at the end of the tongue liner. This simple system enables a quick customization for the best set-up and power transmission.
- Presonalized fit for more comfort
Micro Aluminum Servolock Buckles
Intuitively designed buckles articulate up or down, giving you improved leverage when opening and closing with greater ease.
