It’s the only female member of the Beast family, which has seen four seasons on the market. Six women tested the boot, and every one of them had the word “comfort” jotted somewhere on her test card. Descriptives like “Barcalounger” and “pillows” rolled off their pens. Yet the Beast is reasonably snug—secure enough to arc turns. “You can really load it up,” said Lawrence. “It’s powerful and holds the road at speed and strong angles. It’s cozy but not fancy.”

Best For

High-volume feet.

Not For

Those who like sharp snowfeel. It’s like riding in a cloud.
