Nordica makes roomier women’s boots, but it’s hard to imagine needing more comfort than that offered by the 80W. It’s warm, easy to get on and off, and “fur”-lined, but the rearward support is excellent, and the slightly duck-footed stance helps an aspiring carver find her edges with ease. Carving can’t be far behind. “Easygoing and all-day comfortable, but still fun to ski,” said MacConnell.

Though both are part of the Hot Rod collection, the 100W and the HR Pro (below) are different boots. The main difference: The 100 is 2 mm wider at the forefoot. And where the Pro is quick and precise, the 100 offers quieter, less demanding performance. Shock-absorbing materials deaden vibrations and soften landings, and the stance geometry is well balanced.
