Granted, this is the little brother to the Dobermann GP 130, but that didn't stop testers from calling this Dobie the best yet in a series of recent leaps forward for the race-bred, narrow Nordica family. The new shell shape extends from the top of the line down to the softest 90 flex. It has a shapelier lower that 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. Testers called the 110 "a ringer," "a sand-bagger" and "a sleeper," thus awarding it the blue ribbon for power-to-price ratio amongst our Soft Value entries at the test. They cited a solid and lively feel underfoot with a smooth and progressive flex feel against the leg. Since our test team thought the 110 skied as strongly as most of the other boots in the frontside category, we can only wonder as to the power band available in the 120- and 130-flex versions.

While the new toebox shape offers a most welcome increase in up-front toe room, the rest of the boot still fits as closely as one would expect from a Dobermann. 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 to grind or punch if needed (which will be the case for many feet, testers forecast).
