We liked the Hawx 120 last year and we loved the Hawx 130 this year. How much more? Well for sure more than the ten extra flex points we tried this year—eleven more! The Hawx is so easy in every way, it's impossible not to love this boot. Testers, once again, found that it's easy on-and-off, easy fitting (zero hot spots), easy to get buckled-up—and then easy to shred whatever terrain and snow conditions come your way.

It's warm and it's cushy. The stance angles are solid while being a little upright and relaxed for those who just want to fly on auto-pilot. The Memory Fit custom molding shell technology fully personalizes what is already problem-free fit.

There’s nothing not to like so long as you're bringing a meaty foot to the velvet rope. This is a decidedly roomy medium. Which is awesome for just about everybody, and it's why this boot is so popular.

But to take full advantage of the Memory Fit molding technology you'll need to have a pretty thick foot.  Our Memory Fit tests were all successful—but there's just not much need to mess with the Hawx fit unless you feel the shell hard against the foot somewhere (which virtually none of us did). So, what does that mean? Thick footed ripping skiers should put this on their short list. When it feels a bit too tight everywhere, that’s the green light to fire up the Memory Fit oven.
