We've rounded up the best of the best: Dynafit, Roxa, Head, Scarpa, and Salomon. So which ski boot is right for you?

Roxa boots are for you if: you're a freeride or high-performance skier who wants a top-quality boot that fits better than any other ski boot will.
• Use of advanced CAD Design technology, 3D Printed prototyping, and cutting edge ultralight polymers achieves minimal form with outstanding strength-to-weight ratio
