Charge the pipe or slopestyle course at your home resort with the Nordica Men's Ace Of Spades Ski Boot. In case you're wondering what free-flying pros like Peter Olenick, Jen Hudak, and Colby West are using when they bust out their arsenal of jaw-dropping maneuvers, you're looking at it. Nordica's pro team crafted this boot detail-by-detail to make it a game-changing asset. Its 45-degree buckle closure, progressive flex, and Full Shock Eraser make this flexy boot ideal for buttering, jumping, and adjusting to features.

  • 120 flex index offers a progressive flex for park and pipe slayers and a high rebound for quick turns and edge changes
  • High progression (progression is the degree to which the stiffness increases through the range of the flex pattern) offers solid support in landing and flexing beyond the normal range, which is critical when you land in the switch position
  • 100mm medium last gives an upright and centered stance for landing big tricks and airs
  • Unique shell design enables easy ankle flexion for maximum flexibility when you're adjusting to features, jumping, and buttering
  • Three-piece PU shell construction for easy entry and durability
  • 45° instep retention supplies maximum heel retention, provides forefoot comfort and thermal insulation, and gives easy entry and exit regardless of the temperature
  • Freeride hinge (located low and forward) utilizes a unique cuff design which supplies the highest level of progression
  • Full Shock Eraser features a dual-density boot board that offers cushioning under the foot to soak up impact from big landings and unwanted vibrations
  • PFP FSE liner supplies all-day warmth and comfort while you learn new tricks and master tricky maneuvers in the terrain park
  • Fleece lining wicks moisture away and boosts comfort on chilly early-morning park laps
  • Three micro-adjustable alloy buckles with two mount points and power strap furnish a solid, secure fit
  • Pant clip holders keep your ski pants from riding up your ankles
  • High-traction rubber sole furnishes traction when you bootpack, balance over rocky terrain, and walk to and from the lodge or car

Great boots

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

These boots are amazing. I have a wide foot and the 100 mm last allows for enough room for my wide hobbit foot. I actually went down a size from a 26.5 to a 25.5 because they were spacious enough. I love the progressive flex this boot provides, gives it a softer feel but has plenty of support when your ripping down the hill.

Pretty Good Boots

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I've used the AoS for 4 seasons now and have had two generations of the boot. The first time I put the boot on I knew I'd found my next pair. Nordica's have always fit my foot well and these were no exception. I wear a street shoe 10.5-11 and went with the 27.5, more on that later. These were considerably lighter then the Nordica Enforcers I was coming off. I was in love with the boot from the get go, performance was there when asked, and it was forgiving when needed. After a couples day I replaced the foot beds with a pair of superfeet which snugged up the fit a bit and gave me some more arch support. After about two weeks I started to notice some flaws in the boot. The lower buckle is very exposed and after some tree skiing both of mine where badly bent and almost unusable. On my second pair I broke off one buckle after 3 days of use and have been using with only two buckles for the better part of two seasons. Of all the buckles it's the least important and I don't notice it too much. But it is something Nordica should consider going forward. It would also be nice if a higher quality liner was used as this one seems to pack out quite a bit. The other issue I have found is the toe and heel blocks of the boot seems to wear quicker then any other boot I have used. I have still been able to get 150 days/pair, but they are pretty clapped out by then. If I were buying this boot again I would go down a size and probably get a little more life and obviously snugger fit.

Overall this review may sound a little negative however I have been very happy with the performance and fit of the boot if they would just fix a few details (buckles/liner) it would be "the boot to have".

I'm getting in late on these before this upcoming season. I have a narrow foot. I currently have an old pair of SPK's in 27.5. I wear a regular shoe size of 9.5-10. Dylan - do you think I should jump in a 27 to ensure god performance? That's what it sounds like but I want to be sure....

Thanks for the lengthy review btw.

Awesome boot!

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

This will be my second season in this boot. It is nice and light but stiff enough for someone who likes to charge big lines as well as in the park. It is the right fit for someone with a wide toe box and narrow heel. I use these boots in the backcountry with my AT set up because they are nice and light but do not have a hike mode-- so don't be confused! Stoked on these boots!

Good All-Mountain Boot

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I like this boot a whole lot. I have a pair of Flexons that are nice and light, but I like the stiffness and the added weight, and the replaceable rubber toe and heel, while maintaining the 3-piece concept of the old Flexon. The buckles are also really solid and lock my heel down well. The toe box height of the Ace of Spade is shorter than the Flexons, so popping in intuition liners instead of the stock liners- which are just fine, just heavier and not as warm- put some more pressure on the toes.

The Ace is a really good all mountain boot, without being too heavy and keeping the three piece design, plus having a lot of features that other similar boots don't have.

I need some help on sizing from those of...

I need some help on sizing from those of you with this boot. I Currently have 27.5 Garmont Radiums for touring and 26.5 Dalbello Krypton Pros for resort skiing. I am going to buy The Ace of Spades to replace my krypton pros that are way to tight. Has anyone sized down in these boots, or are they a pretty standard fit to what you usually would wear? how much do these liners pack out, enought to justify a whole size down? for what it's worth, I usually am a 27.0 for resort boots.

If you want a similar fit to your kryptons I would definitely suggest the 26.5. The 100 mm last is a bit roomier and there's probably a little more room in the toe box of this boot once broken in. The liner is very plush and packs out for a good fit after 1-2 days.
