Badged as a midpowered 100-flex, this high-value model competed with zeal and tallied marks that made it one of the very best boots of the test. The 102-mm last fits a meatier foot without sacrificing snugness in the control zones. It has a softer-feeling flex than the stouter models in the category, but there’s a plenty-firm stopping point along with solid lateral transmission. Cohen: “For the bigger foot it fits, this value model is top-tier. Does pretty much what the 130 does for $250 less.”
