While it is nice to be able to crank turns using nordic skis in backcountry snow, most boots that give you that control often negate the touring part. Unless you like backcountry skiing in a boot that feels like a cast, take a look at the Salomon X-ADV 6 touring boot. Deeply lugged sole for grip when you have to take your skis off.
- Thinsulate insulation, semi-gaiter and zippered lace cover to keep snow out and feet warm
- High and rigid cuff provides extreme lateral support and is articulated for easy fore-aft movement
- Fits the Salomon X-ADV Raid or Access bindings
- Note UK sizing
