THE SELL: A lightweight variable-width number for the snowboard crowd. THE TEST: You won't find a more adjustable shoe than the composite-frame 325, with six under-foot spikes and molded plastic ridges that delivered the best firm-snow traction in our test. It's packed with fine-tuning features, including tool-free straps to dial in length and width, a toe-stop for ideal crampon placement, and a quick-flip heel lift. The ratcheting ankle strap was fast and intuitive (and pleasing to our shredders). One caveat: all those moving plastic parts could make for durability issues. THE VERDICT: If you can get past the complexity and onto the snow, you get good float and traction at a great price. 4 lbs
