The best boot in over 60 years!
Comments:
First off, my first ski season was 1953-54. I’ve seen and experienced every innovation in ski boot design from leather lace-ups, leather buckle-ups, plastic shelled boots, various rear-entry styles, etc. I’m willing to say that Apex ski boots probably represent the most radical rethinking of ski boot design since the 1970s rear-entry boots.

40 years ago I worked in the winter sports industry in both specialty retail ski shops and for an Austrian ski and boot manufacturer. I have personally fit hundreds, perhaps over a thousand pair of ski boots, a large percentage of them requiring significant custom fitting.

I was in the market for new boots because I had pretty much thrashed a pair of 17-year-old four-buckle, conventional boots.

Performance notes—

Circumstances made it possible for me to ski both the Apex XP and Apex MC-X. I ski at Snowbasin, Utah, which is 30 minutes from my home. When I skied the Apex XPs it was the first clear day after two weeks of almost daily snow. The skis were an old pair of 185 cm, very damp, smooth riding steel skis. The terrain was mixed, some intermediate groomers, a stretch of Grizzly, the 2002 Men’s Olympic Downhill race course, and some chopped up powder. I have to admit being astonished at how snappy those old boards skied. The Apex XP boots made them feel like they a totally different ski. All that to say, the Apex XPs drove the skis wonderfully well, giving me the best ride I ever had on them. The lean on the boot frame was set all the way forward. I sometimes like to “stand up” and cruise on a flat ski. ‘Wasn’t happening with the frame set up firm and forward.

I’m 70 years old and decided I didn’t need a boot as aggressive as the Apex XP, so I purchased the Apex MC-X. There is a striking difference in the two boots, the XP obviously being more high performance. I’ve put in several days and over 75,000 vertical feet in varied terrain and snow conditions from powder, groomers, crud, and spring “mashed potatoes” on the MC-X boots. They handled all skiing situations with no disappointments. I was sufficiently confident in their performance that I used them for an unwise high-speed, ski-my-age-in-mph run. I can also relax and cruise in them.

I also ski with a 9-year-old grandson who is deaf and on the autism spectrum. He’s in his third season and a fair skier. At this year’s special winter olympics races he took two silver medals. But skiing with him can be strenuous because it’s slow, often wedging. The Apex MC-X’ were solid performers when I had to ski backwards in front of my grandson while communicating in American Sign Language.

Fit notes—

Apex’ comfort and fit claims are not exaggerated. I have a wide, high-volume, size 10 foot, which may be at the outside of Apex’ fit range. I was able to refit the Apex MC-X liner by “cooking” it a bit and wearing it with a couple of sock tips under my ski socks to stretch the width. There were mild pressure points at the outside of my insteps where the front straps connect to the frames. Those pressure points worked themselves out in a couple of days’ skiing.

Lastly, they are indeed all-day boot. I put the boots on at home, drive to the mountain, ski all day, and then drive home in them.

Excellent boots! Glad to make the switch from cold hard boots.
Comments:
For too many years I have been dealing with custom bootfitters to make my feet comfortable in some very well known boots. I have tried 3 different brands and 2 different boot fitters and I must say the bootfitters were excellent. They knew their stuff. But I was not easy to fit. I do not think anyone is easy to fit. But when I got these boots right out of the box these fit beautifully. I took them to my bootfitter for assistance mainly because he could more readily heat them for fast warming of the foam in the inner boot, but I really did not need to do that. I mainly wanted to know what he thought of these boots and I wondered if I could actually just put on a pair of boots without his assistance. He assured me that I could truly do without his assistance. He made sure my stance was correct and he looked at all the things that bootfitters look at and he pronounced me ready to use the boots without any further assistance on his part. So I skied on these for almost 30 days last year in the East (which was not easy to do in the 2015-2016 winter of no snow in the East) but I work as an instructor and stayed on my feet all day in comfort. These boots provide all the support I need to ski any sort of terrain or condition at all skill levels. I was so impressed with them I have ordered a pair of Apex's new 3 buckle boot, and I am sure I won't be disappointed. My bootfitter now sells these boots in his store and highly endorses them and hopes I will send folks his way who are tired of having painfull, cold feet yet still want no compromise in their boots.

Q: Can I use my Zip Fit liners in the Apex boots?
Asked : Mar 22, 2017
By : Jack, United States
Know the answer? Answer this question
 
A:Apex boots have a heat moldable liner that is a bit softer and plusher than a Zip Fit. I have never tried to put a Zip Fit Liner in an Apex. I would say as long as it fits inside the shell without moving around it would be good to go. The only way to tell would be to put one in and see how it feels.

Q: Can I do heat molding at home ? Is it necessary?
Asked : Mar 17, 2017
By : Tony, Canada
Know the answer? Answer this question
 
A:While heat molding is not necessary for these boots it is highly recommended. Over time you body heat will mold the liner, but the heat molding process is much more immediate. This process requires a particular boot oven or liner stacks and should not be done at home.
