Atomic Renu 110
The Atomic Renu is the first ski boot in the world made of 100 percent recycled fiber. Composed of biopolymers, cotton, and bamboo fiber, making it 13 percent lighter than other boots on the market with comparable stiffness and support.

Tall-tee-wearing freeskiers and tight-pant-wearing tourons alike will appreciate Atomic’s new Renu boot. Befriending the environment more than Al Gore, it is the first ski boot in the world constructed with all-recycled products. The shell comes from African Miracle Tree and castor oil plants, while the liner uses only bamboo fiber, cork, and cotton. Available in a 98 millimeter last and 110 flex index, it's 13 percent lighter than the average ski boot on the market. The Renu offers touring-boot weight with beefy support, so you don’t find yourself hustling up a skin track for powder only to feel like you are skiing in a pair of cross-country ski boots. Atomic team rider Jossi Wells, second place finisher in X Games Slopestyle 2008 and first in World Superpipe 2008, even brings the recycled Renus to the park. Designed for any kind of skier and anyone concerned about offsetting their ecological footprint, the Renu justifies buying a new pair of ski boots (but it doesn’t justify driving your Hummer to the mountain.)
