        This LVF boot fits my feet better than any boot I have used in the past. The X-Celerator sole lets me get out over my ski with confidence and gives a very high level of contact with my skis. For those of us with thinner feet or bird ankles this is a great option.

          Comments about Rossignol X-IUM WC SKATE LVF:

          Super comfortable racing boots. I ski almost every day, so I'm really critical of my ski boots. When I'm looking for a ski boot, I'm looking for 1) comfort 2) ski feel and control 3)warmth. These boots deliver in every way and are the best skate boots I've ever used.

          1) I've found these boots to be really comfortable. They can be Thermo-fitted to your feet to customize fit, but mine were comfortable straight out of the box. I have really flat feet, so I did add a custom insole for additional arch support. I skied 52 km yesterday and my feet were comfortable the whole way (!!!) This is significant because in 10 years of racing I've never owned a boot that was comfortable for over 2 hours of skiing. On the 3.5 hour ski yesterday, I never once was distracted by my feet. No hot spots, no rubbing, just a comfortable cocoon for my feet.

          2)These boots provide great ski feel and control. I really like the Low-Volume Fit option for a tighter fit that provides better feedback from the snow. The carbon cuff gives good support and the new sole noticeably reduces the weight of the boot.

          3) I've found these boots to provide adequate warmth. I have fairly good circulation, and my feet were comfortable with a medium thickness pair of wool socks at 0F. The warmth is certainly on-par or better than racing boots from the other major manufacturers.

          In conclusion, a great boot. The best I've owned. 5/5

            LVF offers an amazing fit. I like a very tight fitting boot for optimal control. The LVF gives me the fit I am looking for and doubles Rossi's fit options.

            Comments about Rossignol X-IUM WC SKATE LVF:

            Overall a great boot for both racing and training -- comfortable, snug-fitting, plenty warm, and stiff. Good foot/ski connection.

            I'm a full-time ski racer and use these for rollerskiing all summer and racing all winter. Since I wear my boots pretty tight, I was glad to find the foot box of these boots easily adjustable with just a heat gun and pressure applied with my hands. I used them a couple times to discover the small "hot spots" where boot pressure irritated my feet, and then applied (gentle) heat with a heat gun and shaped the plastic by pushing on it with my hand. Little changes were all I needed. Most ski shops have apparatuses designed to pipe hot air inside the boots for exactly this purpose.

            Though most men prefer the Regular Volume version, my combination of narrow feet and preference for really snug boots meant that the LVF was right for me. The lacing and inner velcro cuff are comfortable and snug, and the outer cinch cuff does its job. Nothing really to comment on there.

            One of my few complaints is that the zippers don't last forever. Without regular cleaning, they eventually gum up and fail when you try to open or close them. The obvious solution is to clean them out every once in a while... not a lot to ask, in my opinion.
