This wide body shell pairs with a thick Intuition Pro liner for an ample and well-shaped fit for medium and thicker feet—if you fully heat mold the High Five. Testers felt the out of box fit was firmly snug in places where there might have been more space based on the 102 mm shell shape. After thermo-forming the EVA liner this proved to be the case as the ankle pockets became more anatomically defined and the forefoot settled to the boot floor for more nuanced edge control.

Testers found the boot on the upright side of the category norm for tall cruising without killing the quads, and they noted that the slightly lower cuff height made this a potentially good match for those with shorter legs or bigger calves.

One of the easiest boots on and off on the face of the planet, the High Five has a place on the short list for any convenience-seeking skier who has struggled with entry and exit of overlap shell boots.
