One of our all-time favorite three-piece boots. This Boss benevolently rules the workplace, cajoling quality turns without slamming an iron fist. Testers couldn't get over how well this wide body skied, regardless of how much or little foot volume was stuffed inside. It was favorably reviewed by everyone from our stick pen-footed to our Flintstonian testers. Everybody felt well seated enough to get it done everywhere on the hill.

A key to the broad fit spectrum is the slick Hi-Low Twinstep Closure buckle. Uniquely, it adjust for higher or lower instep fit by simply selecting a different set of buckle teeth on the lower buckle. Testers also liked the 45-degree Dynalink Rearfoot Retention middle buckle that helps create just the right amount of closure through the throat of the boot for a variety of foot shapes.

And it’s a value CEO. For the price, this boot calls the on-snow shots every bit as well as ones that will pick your pocket for 200 bucks more. Testers thought it was smooth, powerful and agile enough—especially when filled with a beefy foot—to make this a daily driver for all but the most aggressive of big guys.
