Like a phoenix rising from the ashes, Nordica brings back one of its all-time heavy hitters, now improved with Nordica’s proven 3D custom cork liners and new infrared heating system, which allows the bootfitter to target only the areas that need work without compromising the rest of the boot. The fit options are incredible and the performance is solid, but not groundbreaking.  I found that for a medium-volume boot that has ample toe room, things got a bit tight over my instep and a bit loose in the back. Heel hold is important when looking down those double black diamonds, and I was left wanting a bit more. —Ryan Rubino
