There are few boots more cushioned, comfortable and warm than the Adapt Edge 95 W, testers said. Geared toward thick feet and legs, the 102mm last is more spacious than most, making for a relaxed fit for all but the highest volume folk. Though, with a turn of the under-sole Allen wrench adjustment the Adaptive Fit mechanism, a skier can narrow the lower boot by 2mm. This is an easy fit solution for someone right in between the medium Vector and the wide setting of Adapt Edge. It's also a way to snug-up the fit after the liner breaks in a bit down the road.

Testers said the boot was more sensitive than anticipated, given its highly cushioned and roomy fit, but they noted that the boot's forward flex felt much softer than the 95 index level and correspondingly, the lateral strength of the boot lacked a bit when asking for solid carves at speed. The Vector Evo would be a better bet for more aggressive skiers—the Adapt Edge is reserved for cruisers and comfort seekers, and it nails that target all day long.
