La Sportiva Spitfire Alpine Touring Boot - $674.21

At half the weight of a standard AT boot, the La Sportiva Spitfire Alpine Touring Boot is the go-to choice for seasoned ski-mountaineers and touring freeriders who know that speed and efficiency are critical to safety in the mountains. The Spitfire's carbon-fiber-reinforced 'exoskeleton' offers precision and performance during the descent without the need for a stiff, heavy tongue. When the ascent gets rocky and technical, you'll appreciate the EX Flex tongue and the extra-hard edging platforms for secure footholds and the soft rubber under the forefoot and heel for shock absorption. - $674.21
