I Ski the mc•2
"So I finally got some slope time with my new Apex MC2 boots. At first I thought there was going to be some adjustment time due to the change from traditional boots to the Apex but I couldn't have been more wrong as I took to them like a duck to water. The boots were very comfortable and my ski stance was more neutral and upright. Coming from traditional ski boots that would seem like a bad thing to be more upright and in a neutral position but to my amazement it was perfect. I felt way more relaxed and in control and had less strain on my thighs and knees. The boots felt just as stiff as my old Nordicas. I have my Apex set with the 130 flex and might even change it down some at some point just to test it out. I had many people curious about the boots and most seem very receptive to them especially the skiers. Not one skier balked at the price of the boots as they all realize that normal ski boots can cost just as much once you factor all the special treatment most of them need. I skied for about 3 hours straight none stop on pretty much hard pack snow as we have not gotten good snow fall yet and my feet never started to hurt or get cold and the weather one that day was very cold. In my old boots I would have been freezing and miserable by that time. As I get more time in the boots I think they are just going to get better and better and I am really looking forward to getting a good powder day in them. I will let you know more then. For the purpose of this review unlike the ones you will read online I am the average skier. I consider myself and expert skier not because I am super good or close to Olympic ability but because I can keep up with most and will ski just about anything. Some would say more stupid than good but hey I have fun. I ride Vokl AC50s in 178 and a pair of Rossignol S7 in 188. I couldn't be more happy with my new Apex MC2s and don't even consider the price to be an issue when it comes to the comfort and warmth of my feet. The ability to walk around the lodge easy is also a giant plus. Till I have a more in depth and productive day on the mountain. Thanks. -- Andrew Cornett "
