Testers said life is good in the Vita 90—one handed on and off, an open forefoot fit with down toebox lining, and great response to pilot input. The vase-like shape of the taller upper cuff opens at the top to accommodate and support a wider calf, and testers appreciated little touches like the top slider buckle and traction soles. "Perfect for the skier who wants a soft and comfortable boot. Wide but with a nice heel pocket," said Emmy Spenlinhauer. Notes: replaceable toe and heel plates in case of wear, cam-style cuff adjustment is easily dialed-in, Sensor2 bootboard provides balanced foot platform, polyether shell maintains flex at varying temperatures.
