    Women’s cabrio shell type, touring boots- help?

    I’m looking around to buy Mrs Cascade her first pair of touring boots. Asking for cabrio boot recommendations. She current skis FT Soul sisters; likes the feel and easy on/off. Emphasis on easy off. No modifications. Last year we tried a few on to see if something clicked. Lange XT F110 LV W was too tight and difficult on/off. Hawk line- maybe.

    My wife isn’t a ripper but she’s advancing and pushing around some decent size skis for no bat and balls. Moderate adventures. I guess the design doesn’t need to be cabrio but that’s greatly preferred unless some miracle easy on off that doesn’t fold.

    We would look to add a light 2nd option boot OR add a new badass all-arounder and dish the FT SS. Open to both ideas. TIA

    Possibilities

    Scarpa GEA
    Lupo AX W
    Roxa

    Lupos rock, depending on how long range you're planning on touring.

    Seems most similar to her current boot as well. Just haven’t found one to try on the few times we looked.

    Mrs Skilyft was in Soul Sisters prior to her current Scarpa Freedom SL's and absolutely loves them. Going on 3 years strong (4 this year) and will not let me convince her to change them. She is short (5'2") so finding a boot with a wider volume calf area was important as her smaller stature meant moarrr calf in the boot.

    Lupo’s - the end.

    Any can be light without a tongue or strap.

    I need to go to Utah.
    Utah?
    Yeah, Utah. It's wedged in between Wyoming and Nevada. You've seen pictures of it, right?

    So after 15 years we finally made it to Utah.....


    Thanks BCSAR and POWMOW Ski Patrol for rescues

    Roxa RX 130 slips on easily, so if she doesn't want something that stiff, there are lots of softer models.
    I'm liking mine.
