Love At The First Fit... Sight

Then I came across the Atomic Hawx Prime XTD 120 CT GW and all the troubles just went away. This boot combines superb performance with great fit. As I have wider feet I usually have trouble finding boots that won't hurt your feet after a long day of riding. The shell of the Atomic Hawx Prime XTD is quite wide and gives your feet a little bit more space than most of the other boots on the market.
The boot features quite a few great features. Starting with the fit, there is the thermo-formable liner that can be customized to offer the best individual fit for any shape of feet. With the boot you also get size adjuster inserts - those enable you to adjust the by another half size, so the boots offer a great fit even if you are between two sizes.
Regarding the performance of the boot, I have to mention the most important part of the boot - the Free/Lock mechanism that switches between walk mode and ski mode. It is easy to use and you can convert the boot with only one flick of a switch. The Atomic Hawx Prime XTD offers GripWalk - a sole with rockered profile for better grip. The boot is compatible with all GripWalk, MNC, hybrid and TLT-style bindings, which means there is no trouble finding a compatible binding.
I would recommend the Atomic Hawx Prime XTD boots to anyone looking for a hybrid boot that can be used for all-mountain as well as tour/freeride skiing and want to combine performance with a great and comfortable fit.
