Atomic Hawx 110 (2015-16)
One day birds will evolve to the point where they're skiing, and when they do, you can bet they'll want to strap the Atomic Hawx 110 Ski Boots to their talons. Thankfully, they're not quite there yet—can you imagine a giant man-bird with a scythe of a beak standing next to you at the top of a Chinese downhill, staring at you with those evil yellow eyes? Anyways, the Hawx 110 is more than suitable for humans, too, with a 100mm last and a 110 flex that are solid enough to charge the whole mountain and are comfortable enough that you'll be able to rip all day without stopping, even if you're not some sort of hardcore post-evolutionary bird-dude.
If it's been a while since you upgraded your boots, get ready, because some serious improvements in fit adjustability will have you throwing your old boots to the birds. Atomic's Memory Fit heat-fitting shell actually allows the shell to be customized to the shape of your feet, while the lightweight liner will keep your mammalian feet circulating with warm blood thanks to 3M Thinsulate insulation, which which won't compromise the responsive feel of your boots. The forward lean can be adjusted between 13, 15, and 17 degrees along with a flex index by plus or minus 10 flex points to give you that extra boost you need when you're pushing into more steep and technical terrain.
