Some people prefer to have their gear do the talking for them (you know the ones--rasta patterns, neon camo and the like) but the real shredders let their skiing do the talking. The understated graphics of the Nordica Ace 2 Star Ski Boot won't make you look like a turd in the lift line, but it will help you take your jib game to the next level, all the while staying out of the way and letting your cork 9s take center stage. With a progressive flex of 115, the Ace gives you buttery support when you start to lean into spins and landings, even if you're switch, but stiffens up when you really get into it, whether ripping some hardpack turns or lining up some tough lines. No matter what you're dropping, the Full Shock Eraser will take the beating that would otherwise be absorbed by your feet, knees, and spine, and the 45-degree instep closure will pull your heel directly into the heel pocket for supreme hold, precision, and control with no discomfort or slop. You'll probably end up skiing your powder boards some days, too, but the Ace is perfectly equipped to handle wider skis, with a 3-piece shell construction for serious lateral stability and side-to-side control. It's also super-easy to get get on and off, with a tongue and shell that move together to open the throat of the boot wide, even in the cold. All the buckles are also screwed in, as opposed to riveted, making them easy to replace if they break, so you'll be able to rock the Ace for years, or until your riding gets so good that someone starts paying you to wear their boots.
