“Like riding in slippers with support,” one tester said. The Sash is extra comfy thanks to the women-specific calf, soft flex, and low weight (it was noticeably lighter than other test boots). All of that adds up to a stellar park boot—or your go-to for backcountry tours. Nubby tread gripped ice patches, but you might want something stiffer when descending serious steeps.
