While the boot's name, Pure Pro 100 has been around for a few years, this season marks a completely new shell and cuff design (new molds) and all-new liner to suit. Testers loved all the changes and also what didn't change. The 100 mm Pure boot was known for its easy going, comfortable fit with lots of faux fur and a little extra toe room, all of which tended to keep it just out of the tip top tier in the performance score categories. The new Pure Pro 100 has kept a lot of the easy: easy on and off, easy to fit without hot spots, easy to stay balanced. But it has upped its game in terms of how its fit is more closely matched to anatomy rather than reliant on liner cushioning. It no longer fits longer--at least not any more than other models in the group. And it transmits movements to the ski with less slop in the liner linkage--testers said that the liner felt married to the interior of the shell for a zero-delay feel for the snow.

Testers also said that the 100's flex feel is changed for the better--a little more substantial than billed but still evenly cushioned along the shin and able to maintain even pressure distribution between shin and tongue throughout the flex range. They said the fore-aft positioning is slightly upright and a little tall feeling on the leg, both of which enhance the feeling of a 100 flex that punches above its weight class. One of our testers with a keen eye for calf room said that while tall on the leg, the flared cuff shape suited a higher volume leg well, and she noted that while a slender legged skier might need to adjust the cuff to its slightly more forward leaning position, the thicker calf would probably do the trick for a perfectly balanced fore-aft stance.

Testers rewarded how this 100-100 fit and skied with four perfect 5.00 scores out of five. The boot skied at the top of every testers ranking list in the medium width All-Mountain category, and as such it was not a surprise that it took the top spot out of 9 very good boots. What did surprise our testers in the end was that the Pure Pro 100 received the highest score in the entire women's test field--and the men's as well. Tip top.

Kudos

  • “Very firm flex feel for a 100. Fits a wide calf. ” -- Lee Ann Ross
  • “Nice height over the instep, perfect wrap around the calf with a tall cuff feel. This boot has the best drive of the category, in my opinion (which is always different than anyone else's), but no other boot delivers a powerful cuff the way this one does. It does feel a little stiff for a 100 flex though--but in a good value sort of way. Fuzzy fun liner, you either dig it or don't. I liked how they changed up the seams on the liner's toebox, more streamlined, no weird stitching. Skis awesome! Great power delivery! ” -- Emily Poore
  • “Interesting power strap, seems effective and smart design. Consistent fit, feels stiffer than a 100 flex. Smart, understated cosmetics. ” -- Megen Johnson
  • “Should fit most average-ish folks. Great boot--perfect balance. ” -- Liz Elling
  • “Consistently what is expected from a Rossignol boot. Feels great on initial entry and the forward lean position is perfect. A boot for skiing. A slightly more generous heel will work well with this boot. Decent instep accommodations. Consistent ski feeling, you move through the boot and while you can try to ski from the backseat, it will gently coax you into the correct position. ” -- Sam Tischendorf
  • “Another perfect fit from Rossi! I can't rave enough about how perfectly fitting Rossi boots are this year and how amazing they ski. This one is truly for the person that wants to ski well in their Uggs. Cozy, warm, comfy, and powerful...what more do you want?” -- Kori Coggin

Caveats

  • “Maybe a little tight in the toebox for a medium, but very little wrong with this boot. The new power strap is a cool concept, but a little short and hard to get leverage to tighten. ” -- Emily Poore
