The steed that'll take you to glory.
There's a lot of gnar out there that needs to be slayed, so quit wasting time and strap into the Tecnica Cochise 130 Pro Men's Ski Boot. It's the burliest boot in Tecnica's freeride touring line, designed to shred everything from groomers to powder to steep lines to day-old chop with power, precision, and a supreme fit. Indeed, the lower shell has been redesigned with a more anatomical heel pocket for increased hold, a more comfortable asymmetrical toe box, and a lower-volume 99mm last for a snug, precise fit that helps to eliminate slop on the up and down. The new Cochise also has eight degrees more cuff rotation than its predecessor, making the trip up easier than ever—just flip the switch on the Mobility Cuff and steam up the skin track like a man on a mission.
With a 130 flex, though, no one's confusing the Cochise for a light and fast rando boot. It makes its money on the downhills, with powerful performance that shares DNA with Tecnica's famously burly race boots. The new C.A.S. shell styles a unique dimpling structure that makes heating and punching more effective for boot fitters. Pair that with Technica's new, thermo-moldable C.A.S. liner made of customizable microcell material, and you're in for a completely comfortable fit that won't have any pressure points or hot spots. The last has been slimmed down to 99mm for a high-performance fit, and the burly aluminum buckles lock the shell down around your foot for high-powered retention when you're opening things up down big in- and out-of-bounds faces.

This is my go to boot for touring. It ACTUALLY skis like a real boot, not that funky upright feel that most touring boots deliver. It's extremely comfortable out of the box, especially after you heat mold the C.A.S. liners. Oh and it's warm, that's a major criteria for me.
