The Impact 8 gets the same Custom Shell technology as the Impact 10 (see Men’s Freeride), and it’s cool to see Salomon offering it at this lower price point. That means blessed relief for wide feet, without the need to upsize into a sloppier fit. It’s a couple of shades softer than the 10, with a cushier liner, but still skis with integrity. “Outperforms the category but still forgiving,” said Wax.

120/110 The amazing Impact promises high-performance for any foot width. As with the X3 RC race boot (see Speed), it has a panel of heat-moldable plastic along the outside of the forefoot. A shop can quickly make it significantly roomier. On snow, it’s quick and precise, light yet strong—a natural performer in tight spots and bumps, yet solid and stable on corduroy.
