You don't generally wear men's pants, shirts, or undies, so you shouldn't have to stuff your foot into a boot designed for a guy's foot, either. Thankfully, Salomon's steppin' out with a high-performance skate boot designed just for the ladies, the narrow-heel, low-volume Vitane Carbon Skate, engineered for girls who demand top-shelf skate performance. Like its male counterpart, the Vitane is kitted out with a lightweight, high-strength carbon skating plate in the sole that stores energy when flexed and releases it when unweighted, driving energy into the ski to keep you flying down the track, and a carbon 3D Energyzer cuff that gives you snappy ski return and eliminates tip drag, letting your ankle and lower leg muscles relax for easier kick with less fatigue.

As with all SNS Pilot boots, the Vitane has a double-axle pivot that's set back from the toe of the boots, giving you increased control over your ski and eliminating side-to-side motion in the boot-binding interface, ensuring that you're not wasting energy trying to keep your foot in line with the direction of your ski. In addition to the carbon skating plate, the sole has a full-length guide ridge that provides a stable platform during glide and downhill sections. The S-Lab cuff provides strong lateral support while allowing easy ankle flex, and closes with an easy-to-adjust Memo strap that conforms to all ankle shapes.

The Vitane isn't just a shrink 'n' pink women's version of the men's boot, either. It features a super-customizable fit, courtesy of thermo-moldable foam in the heel and forefoot as well as an adjustable heel strap, letting you dial in your fit for maximum comfort and performance. An internal sock holds your foot in place while SensiFit Overlap construction has semi-soft wings that enclose the foot from both sides, locking in place with a precise one-pull Quicklace system, and a racing insole provides foot support for hard-charging ladies. Even with all this, the Vitane weighs in at 30 grams lighter than Salomon's top-shelf men's S-Lab Pro boot, so you can laugh at your training partner when you blow by him.

Great boots

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

This is my second pair of skate boots: I had the old yellow salomons you sometimes see, picked up at a thrift store, for several years and then finally sprang for these. I've been using them for 3 seasons now, and I really like them. I normally wear size 8 in women's shoes, and I have a size 7 in these, so you definitely need to try them on. They fit well and feel good, and most importantly are very light. I have the same bindings on a pair of hybrid cross country skis and my skate skis, so I can use these boots if there's no grooming and I have to xc ski that day (I live in Moab and the grooming is done by volunteers in the Lasals). The only issue I had with them was that the second time I used them, the black plastic strap that sits behind the heel snapped. It was really cold, and I guess the plastic was just brittle. Salomon gave me a replacement strap but neither I nor any ski shop seems to know how to remove the old one and replace it. I drilled a small hole on each side of the strap, put a zip tie through it and then wrapped the zip tie with a thin strip of duct tape. It has worked just fine.
