We all have a friend who knows how to enjoy luxury comforts without sacrificing performance. Maybe he drives a Yukon Denali or rolled out the first 29er mountain bike on the block. Perhaps he swings a Biggest Big Bertha off the tees. Well, you’ll probably find that guy slipping into an NRGy Pro 1 this winter.
Testers said it's stupid-easy to put on, it's soft and warm inside, it's got a little more leg-room than others in the category, yet it totally rips. Who knew, they wondered, that a boot could generate so much power to the edge from inside a comfort-laden cocoon?
Many guys with medium-to-wide feet and solid skiing skills knew this already—the NRGy line is unchanged this season. It continued to impress new and old testers alike with its steady hand and solid back-bone. Testers who cross over easily from medium to wide fits found the most agility here, unlocking the boot's snap by filling up its gaps—especially over the midfoot and instep, where the Pro 1 offers high ceilings. For high arched feet and thicker insteps, this height is a blessing, as many medium-widths clamp down hard there and impinge nerves and cut off blood flow over the top of the foot.
Warmth and power? Why not? They go together as well as heated/cooled leather seats and a throaty V8.
