Predictably, the most expensive AE boot topped the category in all the performance criteria. Testers thought the Z14 could compete one level higher, and in this boot, so can you. It’s a wide-body with a roomy instep, but a stout flex gives it integrity. All systems are solid and well-designed, and the buckles, especially, have a wide adaptation range. “It out-skied the rest of the category,” said Hoffman. “The liner has quite a bit of density, and the shell is anatomically shaped.”

Best For

Future hard-chargers, especially those with meaty feet.

Not For

Incorrigible skidders.
