Dolomite—110 years old—now operates as a subsidiary of Nordica. It’ll focus on no-frills boots at competitive prices. The XC 12 anchors its all-mountain group with a snug, accurate 98-mm forefoot width. It won praise for its initial fit, but testers noted it’s still best suited for shorter, narrow-footed, lighter-weight skiers, as the flex can be maxed out and the cuff is low. “A bit of bowlegged bias and outward flex trajectory makes this boot a monster to the inside edge,” said Elling.

Not For
