2013 Buyer's Guide Preview: Wide Fit Boots

2013 Buyer's Guide Preview: Wide Fit Boots

Comfortable fits, but with increasingly high performance (102 mm plus).

Opting for a wider boot doesn't mean you have to sacrifice performance. These boots by Head and Rossignol offer a roomier fit with the same power and precision as a narrow boot. Read about all of the medal-winning wide-fit boots in our 2013 Buyers Guide.


  
      

Head AdaptEdge LTD The AdaptEdge again wowed testers with foot-gobbling girth and Pillsbury Doughboy flex and fit. The shell-tightening mechanism provides tremendous versatility, taking forefoot volume from 10 gallons to five with the twist of an Allen wrench. Testers called it the ultimate big-guy intermediate boot with enough power strap to encircle even the biggest of calves.
MSRP: $575
Width: 104/102 mm
Flex Index: 110/100

 

 

 

 

Rossignol Vita Sensor2 90 The revised Vita is juiced up with a snappier cuff, which testers said was more supportive fore-aft and provided a more reactive flex. It’s damp and predictable, and though a few testers wanted a little more power, it never feels dull. There’s plenty of room in the toe, forefoot, and instep with a tall but open-feeling boot top. “Damp in a good way. Easy to ski.”
MSRP: $550
Width: 102 mm
Flex Index: 90
