Dalbello Panterra 100 GW Ski Boots · 2023
Someone who wants comfort with performance. The three buckle system provides a snug fit, with the 45 degree buckle holding the heel and ankle comfortably in the boot, without having any pressure. A custom heat moldable liner gives the boot a super custom fit right out of the box, and helps skip any break in period. Adjustable last and gripwalk soles, as well as a walk/hike feature on the boot makes this a perfect match for anyone looking to spend a day on the mountain.
Salomon S/Pro 120 GW Ski Boots · 2023
Recommended for advanced/expert skiers looking for a performance boot. Has a medium last (width) for average-sized feet. Elastic liner in the toe area to keep them snug and warm. The liner is pre-molded and has no stitches or seams for added comfort and warmth. Micro-adjustable buckles to get that perfect fit right out of the box!
Marrying warm all-day comfort to reliable and precise all-mountain performance. The custom 3D pro liners have eliminated the annoying seams in this years model to make them even comfier - this equates to a more snug and warm fit. The 2-position sense amplifier cuff gives you a quicker rebound out of landings (sort of like boosting the camber on your skis it gives more "pop" underfoot). GripWalk soles give you the power to walk around the parking lot and in the lodge with these without feeling like you're constantly on the edge of eating it, very grippy. I think these are one of the best boots to hide seasonal wear too, they come in more of a subdued matte black that is a very clean look.
These are stiff, ultra-responsive all mountain boots with a 120 flex that gives advanced skiers plenty of control and a wider 100mm comfortable fit for average feet. The seamless liner eliminates friction at common uncomfortable rub points. The Custom Shell HD is heat moldable for a custom fit for enhanced sensation. The new Coreframe Construction adds carbon reinforcement to deliver precise terrain feedback and power transmission underfoot.
Head Edge LYT 100 Ski Boots · 2023
Lightweight, easy entry and progressive flex to keep you comfortable while getting the most out of your skis! Head's new liners called the "perfect fit" liners fit amazing straight from the box and can be heat molded for an even ore precise fit.
Rossignol Speed 80 Ski Boots · 2023
All-mountain cruising: From maintaining an edge on skied-out chunks to icy groomers, this boot takes Rossi's race-proven power, but tones it down for more comfort and a flex rating that won't buck you into the backseat on the first bump. Micro-adjust buckles and everything else you need to dial in the perfect fit for all day comfort. Fits average-slightly wider feet best!
Salomon QST Access 80 Ski Boots · 2023
Salomon Select 90 Ski Boots · 2023
The S/Pro line are fantastic boots that fit a variety of foot shapes right out of the box, making them a great choice for intermediate skiers looking for something comfortable but with good performance. 90 flex is solid without being overbearing and the new 2022 model is lighter than ever before.
Tecnica Cochise 110 DYN Ski Boots · 2023
New to 2022, it is a complete redesign. They reduced the weight, made the fit and customization better while retaining the performance and versatility. The C.A.S tech shell and liner will let you fully customize this boot. Overall a top choice tour boot with a mid-range flex that will be perfect to be part of a hybrid set up.
Fantastic performance boot that's powerful and comfortable - 98mm last for a narrower foot, this boot crushes inbounds and out!
Atomic Hawx Ultra 100 Ski Boots · 2023
These have a narrow last for narrow feet or for someone who wants a performance fit from their boots. Completely heat moldable, allowing for a custom fit. Great power transfer with a 100 flex for lighter advanced skiers or someone who wants good control over their skis without losing some comfort with a higher flexing boot.
For the intermediate skier who wants a boot that won't hold them back as their skills progress. Atomic's memory fit technology provides a personalized fit with a moldable shell, liner, and cuff. These are a medium stiffness boot that provides a comfortable ride all day long.
The Hawx is a really sturdy boot that fits most average-sized people really well. These liners have enough stiffness to support the shell but also provide a good bit of comfort as well as customizability to each foot.
K2 BFC 120 Ski Boots · 2023
With a 120 flex these boots are for faster skiing. They are less forgiving in the bumps, but give greater support and stability on groomers and icy runs. They minimize fatigue when cruising steeper terrain. Recommended for solid skiers that are aggressive in style and want good ankle support.
Lange RX 120 GW Ski Boots · 2023
The Lange RX 120 is a high-performance ski boot made for the all-mountain skier. This boot feels stiff, and skis like an absolute dream because of it. Though stiff, it still offers a forgiving flex and can be used to ski inbounds laps all day. With the easy-to-use traditional 4 buckle design and performance-specific design, this boot is an absolute tank that will take you from groomers to chop to pow without skipping a beat. The 3D-liner and dual-core technology will create maximum comfort, warmth, and control. The rubber sole will reduce chatter and a low profile design increases sensitivity in the boot, keeping you aware of your feet. They are also great for days bouncing back and forth between terrain because they have micro-adjustable buckles, so you can tighten them up when it's steep and deep, or loosen them for a mellow groomer day. This is a good intro to high-performance boots without being overly stiff/aggressive like the 130 version.
Rossignol Speed 100 Ski Boots · 2023
The burlier flex on these is great for larger skiers with stiff, damp skis who like to blast through chunky and chattery conditions. It's not a 130 flex race boot, so it's still easier to get your weight out over the tips when transferring between turns, but definitely able to transfer more power to the edges than softer boots.
Lange RX 100 LV GW Ski Boots · 2023
Highly recommended boot for beginner skiers who are scratching that intermediate level and have a narrower foot shape. These boots sport 3D dual thermo liners that are 60% customizable to really dial in that perfect foot wrap with their soft density foam and a precise soft tension fit. The Duo-port injected shell reinforces the most important areas like the spine, heel, and lower shell with a tougher plastic to improve rebound performance and overall give it sturdier durability for the newer skier who will probably see more impact starting out. Meanwhile, the softer plastics are redirected to cushion the ankle and wrap around the lower leg for increased comfort. The best of both worlds!
Nordica Cruise 120 Ski Boots · 2023
A slightly wider fit but with anatomically shaped liners and shell, these offer incredible performance and response, especially at higher speeds. Strategically placed soft plastic on the shell allows for easier entry and exit for comfort. The adjustable cuff is made to fit any calf for the most precise fit possible.
Atomic Hawx Ultra 110 S GW Ski Boots · 2023
Nice stiff, strong boot. Prolite is used to reinforce key structural areas. Includes an added rear spine to increase power transmission to the ground. GripWalk soles make walking more comfortable. Asymmetric collar, tongue, and toe box fit better to the foot and leg.
Salomon QST Access 70 Ski Boots · 2023
Wide toebox and all the features that let you dial in the perfect fit for all-day comfort, and a 70 flex rating. That's soft enough to help you get weight forward over the tips when transitioning between turns, but for someone of your size, you'll have plenty of backbone at speed when you wan a solid edge.
Salomon S/Pro 130 GW Ski Boots · 2023
This is a top of the line boot from Salomon with all of the ideal features. Fully customizable, heat moldable shell and liner for the perfect fit, and GripWalk soles for comfy walking around the lodge or base area. It doesn't really get better than this for high quality boots!
Dalbello Panterra 130 ID GW Ski Boots · 2023
The Dalbello Panterra utilizes the Cabrio, 3-piece design, as opposed to the 2 piece so common with most other boots. This design makes for a friendly and consistently flexible tongue, along with a middle buckle that lays right over the ankle joint, securely locking the heel into the pocket of the boot.
Dynafit Radical Ski Boots · 2023
These Men's Alpine Touring Ski Boots are a good option for a skier with a wider foot. With a roomy 103.5 last and the proven Hoji Lock system, the Dynafit Radical Alpine Touring Ski Boots go uphill as well as down, simplifying every transition with minimum fuss. Although the boot weighs only 1520 in a 26.5, the 110 flex has a consistent feel that will make the downhill confidence-inspiring. It also has a heat-moldable liner.
Salomon S/Pro Alpha 120 Ski Boots · 2023
The S/Pro Alpha is a more customizable version of its predecessor, the S/Max. Whereas the S/Max had a rather inflexible 98mm last, the Alpha is capable of getting up to about 104mm at the forefoot. This is a fantastic upgrade for those with average to wide feet, whom the S/Max did not really cater to.
If your foot shape leans towards the more narrow to normal side, or if you have more volume in the forefoot that has pinch point problems with other boots, this pair would be quite the natural fit. On top of that, the flex adjuster and power spine give you all the tools to fine-tune them to your exact liking, while the Gripwalk soles ensure you stroll as confidently through icy parking lots as you are on the slopes.
Atomic Hawx Ultra 70 Ski Boots · 2023
This boot generally caters well to those with narrower feet and a smaller ankle/heel. This model is intended for newer skiers or those who would prefer a less-stiff boot. Both the shell and liner are fully customizable on these, potentiating things like circulation and quick response, while decreasing things like cramping and pinching. Super comfortable, and super performance oriented.
Rossignol Alltrack 130 GW Ski Boots · 2023
This boot will ski every day just as hard as a fixed cuff boot but hikes great too. With a flick of a switch this boot goes from hard mountain charger to up hill hiker with a great range of motion. Standard with heat moldable shell and liner so you can dial in the fit. Pin tech and alpine binding compatible, this boot does it all. 100mm last so fits a wide range of foot shapes, 130 flex the top of the line from Rossi.
Dynafit Radical Pro Ski Boots · 2023
One of the best touring boots for hard-charging backcountry skiers, the Dynafit Radical Pro Men's Alpine Touring boot ticks a ton of boxes for someone who wants both great uphill and downhill performance. The generous 104 last makes this a great boot for wider feet. A progressive 120 flex, the Hoji lock system with 60 degrees of cuff rotation, and the Pomoca Climb outsoles make this a highly capable alpine touring boot.
