Editors' Choice Award
For only the most specialized of needs (super wide feet, high speed climbers, big-cliff-huckers) will it be overwhelmed; this is an excellent ski boot that quietly entered the market and crushes the competition

Well-balanced AT ski boot performance at a reasonable price point and with a fit that favors comfort and accommodates average to high volume feet

Top Pick Award
Excellent for short climbing sessions interspersed with largely mechanized access backcountry skiing

For “crossover” use, choose the right binding, bigger skis, and, if it fits, it can be used for both occasional short human powered runs and inbounds skiing

No matter how you categorize them, these boots ski well and goes up hill with some difficulty, as compared to other touring boots

Great on a budget and/or for wide feet and those searching for lightweight touring boots for fast backcountry skiing

$750
Simple, clean, all-purpose AT footwear for the subset of the ski population that has high volume feet
