Ski Boots Made For Walking

To create a touring boot that strides up as well as it rips down, Scott altered a backcountry constant: the location of the walk-mode toggle. Usually the lever sits on the heel of the boot, locking it stiff for descending and softening it up for easier climbing. Shifting it to the instep of the S1 Carbon Ski Boot simultaneously increases forward range of motion for more natural striding, makes the lever easier to reach, and even improves downhill performance.
