If you've ever had the misfortune of owning a pair of ski boots that make your feet ache and throb straight to the bone, you understand the importance of finding the right pair. Now more than ever, ski boots are seriously improving their technology to allow for a nearly custom fit from the inside out. If ripping frontside turns and exploring more of the mountain are two things you can't wait to do this season, give the Salomon X Pro 90 Women's Ski Boot a shot.
For lighter shredders and intermediate ladies looking to up their game, the X Pro 90 eliminates the need for dramatic punching and grinding with a completely heat moldable 360 Custom Shell and My CustomFit 3D Performance Women's liner. After you get the two heated up and molded to fit the rolling topography of your feet, you'll be cruising around the mountain from first bell to last without the need to stop in the lodge and let your feet come back to life. The last width can expand a full 6mm, from 100mm to 106mm, so even the widest-footed skiers will find a comfortable fit, and the 90mm flex is sturdy enough to ski the whole mountain but doesn't require aggressive technique or a lead foot to spring to action.
Salomon also designed the X Pro 90 specifically for wider modern skis, with a 24mm oversized pivot and Twinframe2 construction that keep the boot laterally stiff so you can control your edges easily and precisely. Twinframe2, which maps stiffer and softer PU throughout the boot, also makes the X Pro 90 easy to slide on and off and gives you sensitivity and control where you need it, so you don't need to crush your toes to ski well. There's even a screw cuff adjustment, which helps you fine-tune the lower-leg fit to reduce pinching and slop, a wide and low calf that's cut to fit women's legs, and an adjustable flex screw that lets you stiffen or soften the boot's flex by a few points depending on how you're feeling.
