Apex Ski Boots are in the market for quite a few years now, and they are also different from other ski boots.
I tried them once when I and my wife went to British Columbia, Canada to meet my cousin. So, in this review of Apex Ski Boots, I’ll try to answer all your questions, so that you can make a better and informed decision about buying these boots.
So, let’s get started.
My Personal Experience with Apex Ski Boots
I have tried a few other ski boots from brands like Rossignol, Salomon, and Nordica. If you see them, they look like just other ski boots. But, they’re pretty different from other boots.
Actually, I was amazed to see that they have a Two-Part Ski Boot System, which means the Apex Boots can be separated into 2 parts: a walkable boot and open chassis.
So, when you want to use the stairs and go for lunch, then you just need to remove the open chassis, and you can use the walkable boot for walking. Trust me, walking in Apex boots is so much easier than in other ski boots.
Take a look at this video. Here, Jess Platt talks about why she uses Apex boots. She is the Supervisor of Vail Ski and Snowboard School. She is a professional.
Whether you ski occasionally or regularly, doesn’t matter, then you know what I’m talking about. Walking in ski boots is hard and not comfortable. But, with the Apex, we just need to remove the open chassis, and it becomes much more comfortable for walking just like snowboard boots.
I remember that we were skiing for some time, and we were feeling hungry. Then, we just removed the open chassis and used the carrier strap to hang the open chassis on our shoulders, and we just walked comfortably to our lunch place.
My wife is still a beginner at skiing, and she was quite impressed with the comfort and warmth of these boots. She was not saying much about the quality and stiffness of the boots, because she does not have much experience but what she noticed were the comfort and warmth.
Initially, I thought that these boots are comfortable and warm, but they wouldn’t give great performance, but I was wrong. I felt that I was in total control, and the performance was not compromised. They felt good on my feet.
I know you can relate to my situation, the snow is good, and you want to ski more, but your feet are freezing and hurting. You call the day off, but deep inside you want to ski more. For me, Apex Ski Boots solved this problem because they’re so comfortable that I can wear them all day long. Yeah, they’re not as comfortable as running shoes, but as compared to the standards of ski boots, they’re far more comfortable.
One more thing I forgot to mention is that they have a BOA lacing system. The BOA Closure System is a patented system where classic laces are replaced by stainless steel wires that helps you a lot to adjust the tightness of your ski boots.

What do I think about them?
I think they’re really good. I’m impressed with the quality, comfort, warmth, and ease of use of these boots. I love the fact that I can walk in them just like snowboard boots, and can wear them all day long without hurting my feet.
So, if you want to try them, don’t hesitate. They’re one of the best ski boots for comfort. If you check the price of Apex Antero, and Apex Blanca, you’ll see that they’re a little expensive compared to common ski boots. This is because they have added a lot of features that you can’t get in other boots.
So, in the end, yes, I recommend them, and don’t hesitate to buy Apex Ski Boots, if your budget allows it.
