Atomic Hawx 100


Pros: Comfort with performance, easy on-off

Cons: none so far

I purchased these at the Boot Doctors in Taos to replace a pair of ancient Tecnica TNS boots. My feet are "beat up and gnarley" (one extra large ankle bone, "B" width, high instep, flat arches) and thus hard to fit. After working with the fitter, including new foot beds and adjusting the "heat conformable" liners, foot nirvana was achieved. I've skied the boots about twenty times: no complaints, whatsoever, and definitely a performance bonus. Like a good umpire, once ski boots are fitted and broken in they should almost disappear from consciousness. These do. The Atomic "whiz-bang" specifications are here, for whatever they're worth: http://www.atomicsnow.com/en/ProductFinder.aspx/#/alpine/alpine_boots/5/all_mountain/ae5000040/hawx_100


Two added points: I could not discern any difference in flex between the 110 and 100, so I chose the black over the red shell. And there can be no doubt that having the Hawx tweaked by a pro was more than worth the money.


Bottom line: total satisfaction, for me.


Pros: Great micro adjustments, stiff boot, with room for my toes, while still providing a vise like heel cup.

Cons: They look like something off Star Trek.

These are great boots. I always suffered my toes being squeezed in most boots, or if I bought boots that fit my toes (width) the rest of my foot was swimming in the rear of the boot. Not the Atomic Hawk, the toe box is roomy, my heel feels like it is in a vise (which is GOOD), plus I can adjust the boots to very tight when playing with my race skis and still be comfortable. I also like that there is a height adjustment at the rear the boot to help promote a better forward lean. Great boots, very true to size.
