The 10 Best Men's Ski Boots of 2022-2023

By: Jordan Sunshine: Ski Buyer | September 16, 2022

 

When it comes time to buy new ski boots, there’s nothing more important than the fit. It doesn’t matter how tricked out their features are, or how snazzy the graphics treatment is. If your ski boots don’t fit you well, you’re not going to ski well. That’s why the best men’s ski boots are designed to fit a wide range of feet well and to be easily modified by experienced boot fitters so that you can get the most precise and comfortable boot-foot interface possible.

New This Year:

Once you’ve got your fit figured out, this year’s crop of the best ski boots has a lot of new features on offer. More and more brands are making their boots in variable width, and flex profiles so that you can find the best combination for your foot shape and skiing style. And the GripWalk sole standard is now the norm for new boots, so you can have an easier time walking around the base area, without sacrificing power transmission or safety. These boots are better than ever before, and there’s never been a better time to shop for new boots!

Atomic Hawx Prime 110 S

Atomic Hawx Prime 110 S

Perhaps Atomic's best-selling men's boot worldwide, and with good reason, the Atomic Hawx Prime 110 S GW Ski Boots can be molded to fit a wide range of foot shapes from average to wide using Atomic's Memory Fit heat molding process. The upgrade to the Mimic Gold liner, which molds extremely well to both the foot and the boot shell interior, is also a huge advance in custom fitting technology. Throw off the chains of ill-fitting boots and improve your skiing and state of mind in one fell swoop with the Hawx Prime 110 S. These are comfortable, tried, and true boots that were designed to elevate every aspect of your skiing.

Technica Mach1 MV 130

Tecnica Mach1 MV 130

The standard by which expert freeride boots are judged by many, the Tecnica Mach1 MV 130 Ski Boots are on a roll that won't stop any time soon. Already one of the stiffer 130s on the market, the Mach1 benefitted from the addition of Tecnica's T.Drive carbon rear spine two seasons ago and the boot remains largely unchanged except for the move to GripWalk soles. For those of you who think the current crop of 130 boots is suffering from "flex index inflation," check out the Mach 1 MV 130 and see what you've been missing. If you’re looking for the precision and power of a race boot, with more freeride-friendly features, the Technica Mach1 MV 130 is the boot for you.

I was born and raised in northern Vermont and moved west as soon as I turned 18. I bounced around the PNW for a while eventually following evo’s store openings to Denver where I have called home since and although I will always take even the wettest of pow days, have come to appreciate any day skiing in the sun, be it with friends or my kids.

I have been skiing since I was 2 and started working in a ski shop when I was 14, which was way more fun than washing dishes. Over the years I have worked as a ski tech, boot fitter, liftie, product copywriter, and eventually came to manage evo’s Portland and Denver stores. Now I am the Ski Buyer, overseeing ski hardgoods and backcountry accessories.
