Alpine touring skiers are going to like the Garmont Shogun. Here’s a boot with comfort, stiffness, and flexibility. The comfort comes from the thermo-moldable liner. It conforms to your foot to ensure a perfect fit. Then there’s the stiffness. The four buckles and the power strap allow you to ratchet down when you’re about to drop into a technical chute, and the beefy exterior reinforces the areas begging for support. But perhaps the greatest asset to alpine touring skiers is the boot’s lightweight flexibility. It has strength where it’s needed and flex where it’s not. The result is that it gives your feet sweet relieve for long days of mountain assault.
