The Alias Sensor 70 is a new boot from Rossignol this year. A very accommodating 104mm last fits a wide variety of feet. This recreational boot is built with comfort in mind. An EVA machined liner is designed to keep feet warm and insulated on those cold weekend mornings when the chairs are spinning and the rest of your group is still sleeping. Notches in the plastic along the instep make getting in and out of this boot a dream. A cutout of the plastic portion of the tongue over the instep bone will increase blood flow to your toes keeping feet warmer and pressure on the top of the foot to a minimum. A mid-wide cuff makes the Alias Sensor 70 a good option for those skiers that have medium to wide shaft of the leg. The most unique feature to the Alias line is the V shaped last which keeps the heel locked down as the shell gets wider to make more room in the forefoot giving you more control without sacrificing comfort. A great boot for someone with wider forefoot for the skier that is skiing a few days of the year not looking to invest a lot of money.

I'm a recreational skier with big wide feet. The 104mm lastwidth and mondo 33.5, US 15.5 length was a critical buying point because of my wide and long feet. I wear size 13EEE sneakers and I could have probably gone with mondo 32.5; my brother is a size 13 and he says they are too long for him, but honestly I'm satisfied with the length I bought and when I first put them on I wish the last was even a little wider.
I have had to add shoe inserts because even though my feet are wide and long they didn't fill the vertical space; even with the two lower buckles as tight as I could get them I could lift my foot up from the bottom about half an inch. And I also have to add padding to my shin because the tongue does not have enough built-in padding to keep me from feeling the plastic pushing painfully into my skin when I lean forward.
I also wish there was a walk-ski switch to make walking easier but I knew it didn't have one when I bought it.
All in all I am happy because I have boots wide and long enough for me to wear relatively comfortably after some minor modifications. These aren't for Pros but if you are a wide-footed person out for just a little fun on the slopes then these may be right for you.
