Women's Frontside Category ski boots deliver race-level performance on piste for skilled, technical skiers looking for the lowest-volume fit short of full-blown World Cup race "plug" style boots. Designed to transmit energy and movements to the skis without delay, women's Frontside ski boots often offer the thinnest, densest liner construction as well as traditional, four-buckle overlap shell construction.

Generally speaking, Frontside ski boots may be a little more difficult to get on and off (they're stiff) and aren't always the warmest on the market (thin liners), but the hardcore female skiers that gravitate toward these boots don't care.
