Product Info

Nordica Fire Arrow F3 Ski Boots - Women's 2012: The revolutionizing high performance women’s Nordica Fire Arrow F3 Ski Boots bring entirely new technology to ski boots to match today’s style of skis. While boots have remained relatively static over the last twenty years, skis have evolved dramatically enabling skiers to ski faster, increase inclination and create greater lateral forces. The Fire Arrow boots address these new demands with an entirely new shell design to enhance lateral precision, progressive forward flex creating easier ankle articulation, and a 45 degree closure system for maximum heel retention. The F3 has the newest shape and technology with a women’s specific liner designed for today’s high performance female skier.

Product Details

Materials

Tr. Polyurethane Ether shell

Efficient Dynamic Technology wedge is a footboard of extruded aluminum and carbon fiber that is attached to the shell with four pins, radically reducing (more than 50%) the structural inefficiencies created by the flexing and torsional deformation of plastic shells during skiing.

Liner

PFP Precision Women’s Fit liner with fur lining

Additional Features

3 Alu buckles with micro adjustment

35mm wide Hook-and-Loop Fastener strap

High Traction dual-density PU sole

Cuff Shape

45 degree instep retention holds heel down with better forefoot comfort and the easiest entry and exit regardless of temperature.

3 piece easy-entry shell construction

Double canting adjustment

Flex and Fit

Adjustable progressive flex (hard-soft) with tongue rebound

Dynamic Performance Code 13.5-2-H: 13.5 Nm/degrees (stiffness) is the stiffer of Nordica’s high performance women’s boots; 2x (progression) - the boot stiffness almost double at the deepest flexing point; High (rebound) returns the boot at the highest rate for quick turns and edge change.

I was looking for a ski boot that was cute (I am a girl, so this was very important) but that was also comfortable and adjustable. I was very excited when I found the Nordica Fire Arrow F3 W Ski Boots on Evo.

When the boots arrived I loved how they looked, but I was worried about how they would feel since I saw they were a stiffer boot for advanced skiers. They are a little stiff, but you are able to adjust them to have more flexibility.

My first day skiing on them it was great- no blisters, they fit perfect and were true to size. I would recommend this boot to any intermediate to advanced female skier.

      Comments about Nordica Fire Arrow F3 W Ski Boots - Women's 2012:

      I have had an awful time with ski boots that don't kill my shins after a single day of skiing. I actually rented these initially and they were amazing. My feet stayed warm. They held my foot snugly. I have a bit wider feet so it did rub a little on the lateral portions of my feet but not enough to blister. I felt I had great control with these. And the biggest part for me was my shins felt perfectly fine after several days of skiing. I didn't even think this was possible. They started out as rentals but ive purchased these since and really am pleased overall. It doesn't hurt that they are really cute, too!

        Comments about Nordica Fire Arrow F3 W Ski Boots - Women's 2012:

        This is the best boot I've ever had but it may not work well for beginners or skiers with wider feet. I have a medium-narrow foot/ankle and this boot holds it very solidly which gives me great control especially when I want to be more aggressive. It tends to the stiff side which I also prefer but you can adjust it to be softer. If you like to get the most out of your skiing and test your skills this boot may be for you.

                I purchased these boots for my 13 year old daughter who has been skiing for 7 years. She told me that these are the most comfortable and warmest boots she has ever owned. She loves the graphics and colors, which is important to a teen girl, but the amount of adjustability is fantastic. This boot has adjustments for stiffness. Top notch quality boot. She couldn't be happier.
