Rear entry boots are dead, right?
So in the lift queue you might see some yellowing Salomon SX 50s, but rear entry boots disappeared along with music cassettes, didn’t they?
Not so fast; the Nordica HF 110 might be one of the most interesting boots of the year.
Nordica has realised that many skiers want convenience and comfort, not a low-volume shell that’s harder to put on and take off than a wetsuit.
The HF 110 uses a single rear buckle to close the cuff and then a second closure over the instep to tighten the shell, wrapping the foot in a race bred cork and oil filled liner.
That means that it fits, and fits remarkably well. A double hinge system gives the sense of flexing in a traditional overlap boot, but in a boot that you can put on and take off ‘hands free’.
This isn’t the boot for everyone, but it is the boot that has a unique blend of convenience, comfort and performance, you can put in on completely hands free and even unfasten it with your ski pole tip.
Convenient, great for an older but strong skier.
