Stiff, Light, Capable
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
- Fit: True to size
- Size Bought: 25.5
I looked for a long time for a women’s boot that was both stiff and walkable and now after three years in the Shadow I recommend it to anyone who will listen. Great for “normal” feet, runs true to size (with a roomy toe box that’s great for touring), easy to transition between walk and ski mode, and I love a three-piece boot (more progressive flex and easier to get on). I only stopped touring with these boots to upgrade to their lighter siblings the Stellar, and now use these as resort boots, and somehow they’re stiff enough to drive a ski inbounds too. Buy these boots.
