Fun and fast aren't exclusive.
Designed for skiers who like to go fast, get fit, and have fun, the Rossignol X8 Skate Boot lets you enjoy yourself when you're skiing hard or hitting the trails for a training cruise. It's a versatile boot with a moderate amount of stiffness and power, courtesy of the 3D bi-injected cuff and external 3D heel counter, but without the demanding requirements of a full-fledged race boot. It features a thermo-moldable liner for a comfortable custom fit, and a Speed Lace Lock system to provide an extremely precise yet comfortable fit, ideal for a full-day skate or quick post-work fitness laps.
The upper cuff replaces the carbon found in Rossignol's highest-end boots with a plastic frame that's easier to ski without being a floppy pushover, and it uses an easy-to-use hook-and-loop ankle strap to keep things in place while remaining comfortable. A Lock Down foot wrap and Active Control ankle support allow for a more natural foot roll and easy kick while skate skiing, and the zippered lace cover helps keep snow and water out of your socks so your feet stay warm.

- Q & A
- Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
I haven't been able to use these yet. But, while wearing them around my apartment, they seem very comfortable and well built. I'll try to update my review once I've used them.

- Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share
I got these for my boyfriend as part of his first setup (paired with the Rottefella Xcelerator Skate Binding, Rossignol Delta Skating NIS Ski, and the Rossignol Extra Carbon 70 Ski Pole).
We have two big, energetic dogs and exercising them in winter is tough. We hit on skijoring and it has changed our lives. The boots fit well. He has wider than average feet so finding good fitting boots is difficult. He has never had a complaint about these. The only complaint is the laces broke pretty early on, but that was an easy fix.
