Product Description For venturing out into the winter wilderness, it's nice to have warmth and comfort on your side. The Rossignol XC-1 FW women's cross-country ski boots have all that and then some. Built with a lower-volume instep and a slightly narrower fit overall versus the men's boot, the XC-1 FW is a simple yet elegant Nordic boot for beginner and recreational-level cross-country skiers who are looking for something light, fun, and easy to use, all in a value-oriented budget. Thanks to the design and build of these boots, the fit and function is a lot more similar to a normal hiking boot than it is to a competitive-looking cross-country boot with high-level features. This is more of a throwback type of cross-country boot but with all the modern conveniences in terms of fit and warmth. The narrower shape is perfect for the more slender-footed lady, and the simple yet effective lace up system allows you to cinch it tight if the mood strikes, and makes for an easier overall entry and exit. The touring sole is the perfect flex for the more shuffle-oriented skier-one that lacks the upper end expert kick and glide technique but also one that's effective for the terrain and conditions that are normally found for this skier. If you're looking to get out there and have a great time and get some fresh air and exercise, the Rossignol XC-1 FW women's cross-country ski boots are the right tools for the job.
