These ski boots ARE made for walking

Everyone has a story about how uncomfortable their ski boots can be to put on in the morning and how great it feels to take them off at day’s end. Not nearly as many people have done much to make them more comfortable. Don’t get us wrong: ski boots today are far better than they were five years, 10 years, 15 years and CERTAINLY 20 years ago. But totally comfortable? Then why do we look over so jealously at all those snowboarders and their cozy boots? (Even as we laugh at them trying to negotiate lift lines and long flats.)

All of which explains why we’re so amped about the new Apex boot: essentially a snowboarding boot inserted into a lightweight carbon fiber frame. They still have some work to do before the common skier can enjoy it (starting with the price), but it’s a great piece of engineering. Read the story in the Denver Post.
