There has never been a better time to be a good skier with a low volume foot. There are a heap of great boots on the market that mate well with skinny feet and the RX 130 LV continues to command a perch at the top of that pile. It blends the race boot power and precision necessary for burning frontside speed laps with the off-road suspension dampening required in fields of crud, slammin' off bumps and stomping the occasional flat landing.

Thankfully, Lange hasn't changed much here this year. Testers did make note of the new goblin green buckles that pop like stripper heels under a black light and the revised tongue construction that eases a perennial slight tension spike over the top of the foot. The use of perforated foam over the midfoot produces a more accommodative feel there, freeing up blood flow and eliminating the under-buckle ache that often plagues narrow, performance boots.

The RX LV has defined narrow-class fit tension for years (meaning it is snug everywhere) and it also calibrates the industry yardstick for stance angles—neutral fore and aft and dead-flat side-to-side. The RX LV home base is exactly where good skiers want to move out from, and is the key to its versatility in all terrain and turn shapes.
