Yes, this boot is strikingly reminiscent of rear entry boots, but it uses some very modern tech to provide comfort and performance. The HF Elite Heat has built-in THERM-IC heating elements in the liner that can be adjusted using a smartphone. That same liner uses Nordica’s proven 3D Custom Cork for superior skiing performance, as well as Infrared customization system to fit funky foot shapes. Plus, the rear buckle can be opened and closed using a ski pole or your other foot. No more bending over.
