The Hagan Core Women’s boot is loaded with acronyms you don’t need to know. The important facts are: it’s simple, walks well, and skis well. The lower buckle uses a smart wiring system that acts like a toe buckle and an ankle buckle, locking your foot in place to reduce blisters and improve ski performance. The upper buckle is a Velcro strap that can adjust the flex of the boot. Changing modes is a simple throw of a rear lever that is well protected from the elements. If you enjoy ski touring and not dealing with boots, check out the Hagan Core.
If you want a simple backcountry touring boot that walks and skis well, check out the Hagan Core. Loaded with marketing acronyms (below), the Core boots aren’t loaded with complexity. A micro-adjustable lower buckle uses a wire to get the effect of multiple buckles locking your heel in place. An infinitely adjustable upper Velcro booster strap acts as the top buckle. A reliable ski/walk switch in the back changes modes. Put your feet in, walk uphill, transition, ski down, repeat. The Hagan Core boots have that procedure mastered.
