The X-Turn's boot test return (with updated cosmetics) got the attention of our team again for its ease of fit, smooth flex range, and good-enough power scores to make this one to consider. Testers gave the boot high marks for comfort and warmth, and all testers were in agreement that this was a medium that bordered on wide category status, particularly in forefoot width and ceiling height over the top of the foot. This vertically generous fit plus the cabrio style lower boot could make the X-Turn a great match for skiers with higher volume feet looking for a boot with a cuff release mechanism.

Testers were not as excited about the buckles and closure system, citing that the buckles tended to get tangled upon entry and contacted each other when tightened, during flexion.
