Responsive and powerful on the descent, the Tecnica Cochise 120 randonee boots are compatible with Dynafit-style bindings and have a hiking mode so you can seek out untouched powder stashes. Ski/hike switch frees upper cuff to work with your stride and makes it easy to hike for your turns. Steel and aluminum, metal-pin-to-metal-plate connection locks the upper cuff to the lower shell when you're ready to ski and allows you to really flex into your skis. Lightweight, mono-injected polymer shell is designed to make it easy going uphill, and it provides the responsive power you need on the way back down. Boots come with tech soles installed that allow compatibility with Dynafit-style bindings and other randonee bindings; alpine DIN-compatible soles are available separately. Soft plastic over instep makes it easy to get your feet in the boots. Liners offer superior heel hold, complete foot envelopment and rubberized shock absorption in tongue and feet. Custom-formable liners can be heated in a specialty ski shop to achieve a personalized fit. Neoprene toe boxes increase warmth in feet and absorb vibrations. Catches have a whopping 44mm range-22mm forward and 22mm back. Instep catch is hinged, allowing excellent pressure distribution; plus, it pivots away from the shell, letting the shell spread for easy entry. Instead of a traditional power strap, a wide cuff buckle combined with a 45mm rip-and-stick strap eliminates space between the cuffs and liners and securely wraps lower legs. Cuff alignment matches the angle of the cuff with the shape of the lower leg, increasing comfort and performance. Rip-and-stick attachment system allows you to set the rear spoiler at different heights for personal preference, or it can be removed altogether. Very sticky arches and soles are designed for hiking in snow. Shock-absorbent heels smooth descents and soften landings. - REI
