The Rossignol XC 3 ski boot is a fantastic option for entry level or brand-new skiers to introduce themselves to the wonderful world of cross-country skiing. For these types of skiers, comfort is of the utmost of importance. With a lower cuff, you’ll have free range of motion as opposed to some of the boots that have a plastic cuff, which is better for control, but not quite as comfortable. These low-cut boots are much more similar to a sneaker than any ski boot you’ve ever had on your feet. For simplicity and comfort, the laces are a pretty standard system. The lace cover does a great job at keeping snow and moisture out, allowing you to enjoy more time outside, leading to more time on the snow. For getting skiers started and eventually hooked on cross country skiing, the Rossignol XC 3 is a perfect starter boot.
