Cabrio design (where the shell has a tongue that opens forward for easy entry) is a natural fit for the comfort category. No other boot in the test was easier to slip on than the Panterra. An easy walk mode plus extra-grippy soles gives it best-in-class, free-striding mobility for lodge stairs and icy lots. And on the hill? It’s not built to hammer, but it’s smooth and predictable, and it puts the ambitious skier in a position to succeed. “Easy on and off, very nice overall fit, skis well,” Slade said. “Delivered beyond my expectations.”
