Got a wide, high volume foot and a larger calf? Ski pretty hard? Want a cuff release for hiking or hanging out for extended après ski sessions? Well, there are only three 102mm boots with hike modes that made the medals cut this year, and the Alltrack 120 is one of them—and it would suit the skier described above perfectly. But it will be a great option for a lot of other skiers too—many of our test team's narrower-footed folk loved the way this boot skied, and they also appreciated a little extra room for their forefoot to spread and find balance. That's one thing about the Alltrack 120, it may be wide, but it's stance and solid shell construction give it a great feel for the snow—even when some testers' skinny feet weren't feeling much of the shell.
The Alltrack's target market is probably not a serious out-of-bounds trekker, but it certainly could be—it's lightweight enough, with adequate range of motion in hike mode and it has a comfortable, moisture-wicking liner with a Thinsulate layer integrated into it. But all these elements in a ski boot work pretty good for, well, just skiing too. And the easy-to-use cuff release pull tab is like flipping the convenience switch to on—standing in lines is almost fun with a boot in walk mode. Almost.
