Few boots are as highly regarded—and have been for so long—as the classic Lange “blue boot,” aka the RS. It has the performance of a plug race boot, but with a shell that’s sculpted to fit the average foot. The only nod to women in the 120 SC is the short cuff (hence the name), which accommodates a lower calf muscle. Otherwise, it’s built for pure high-speed performance. “Responsive,” “super stiff,” “tight!” testers said—a bad-ass boot for women who ski every- thing, everywhere with energy and confidence.
