Our Top 2021 Men's Alpine Ski Boots for Medium Width Feet
Choosing the right pair of ski boots can be a tricky task, but it is essential that you choose a pair suitable for your feet. Having a correctly fitted pair of boots is going to allow you to ski comfortably all day long and perform to your best. If you have medium width feet, then this list of our top men’s alpine ski boots for 2021 is the starting place for you.
The Speedmachine 110 perfectly fuses comfort and performance for stronger intermediate and lighter weight advanced skiers. Tri Force Construction uses a rigid spine and sole to drive energy to the skis, with an anatomical frame nicely wrapping the foot and a softer plastic flap allowing ease of entry and exit.
Infrared Technology gives the ability to quickly tweak the shape of the shell during the fitting process which eliminates pressure points and gives the best possible match to the foot shape. An easy to use adjuster on the spine means the flex can be tuned to the skier or the terrain.
The Recon 100 mixes lightweight, comfort and performance, not an easy task but a combination that will appeal to any intermediate skier. With a 100mm last, this medium volume version is perfect for mid-width feet.
The brand new TPU Powerlite Shell is purpose-built to result in the best skiing and lightest boots possible. With 4 different stiffnesses of TPU and optimised wall thickness profiling, the Powerlite Shell manages to achieve a tricky balance between lightweight agility and power.
The Hawx Prime 130 shines as a high-performance boot with impressive comfort. The Prolite Construction lightens the boot and improves the fit and sensitivity without losing any of the power of previous versions. True Flex PU results in a shell and cuff that are less affected by temperature changes and produce a more consistent flex.
The Memory Fit shell, aided by the Energy Backbone, delivers precise energy transmission and can be moulded in-store to the skier’s feet for the best possible shape. The pre-formed 3D Platinum liner is customisable too and the inclusion of Thinsulate material makes it nice and warm. For further personalisation, the Power Shift alters the forward lean on the cuff and the amount of flex. It’s so simple to do, it can be altered anytime.
The Salomon S/PRO 100 replaced one of the bestselling boots of the last decade and impressively, improved on it. The whole boot is light due to the Coreframe construction that places a stiff frame close to the foot so there’s no loss of power. The Sense Amplifier on the cuff creates a more progressive flex and increases the rebound.
Custom Shell HD is a fast and effective way of custom moulding a shell to improve the fit; the pre-formed seamless liner is warm, light and comfortable, and ready to be heat moulded during fitting.
The all new Fischer RC4 The Curv One 120 will suit advanced level skiers looking for an impressively customisable fit, and is perfect for medium width feet with a last of 101mm (+/-3mm). Somatec puts the skier in a relaxed stance, the chunky 45mm powerstrap boosts the level of control and GripWalk soles boost comfort and safety.
It has plenty of space internally, without ever becoming overly large; the Vacuum process of custom fitting really improves the feel, removing any pressure spots. The pre-formed 3D liner enhances this further with the heat moulding ensuring a fully customised approach.
Aimed at advanced skiers, the Panterra 120 uses Cabrio design to produce a smooth progressive flex, keeping the tongue in constant contact with the shin and improving control. The use of Power Cage reduces weight without affecting performance and hike mode makes walking easier. With GripWalk soles already fitted, and Alpine units in the box, compatibility is covered.
Fit-tuning has always been an important element of any Dalbello boot and the heat mouldable shell and thermo mouldable liner can be precisely fitted. The set up can be honed further using the twin canting and variable ramp, to get the boot angles just right.
