For years, people have tried—and failed—to make an alpine ski boot that performs well on the slopes but lets you walk around the lodge without clomping. The new APEX, by APEX SPORTS GROUP , employs a custom-moldable inner liner that's a bona fide boot—you could wear it to a restaurant. When paired with a carbon-fiber chassis and cuff, it skis as well as a traditional, moderately stiff alpine boot. $1,295; apexskiboot.com
