In 1963 Bob Lange introduced the first plastic ski boot with buckles and changed the sport forever. Today, Lange remains the gold standard for ski boot design. Known for uncompromising fit, comfort and skiing performance, Lange ski boots at at the top of the game, joining the best skiing athletes on the podium year after year. The Lange Ski Team includes professionals like: Tina Maze, Didier Defago, Dominique Gisin, Maria Hoefl-Riesch, Reine Barkered, and Filip Flisar. Lange takes fitting boots very serious. For more than 50 years, Lange has worked alongside the greatest boot specialists from both the competitive and mainstream sectors to mastermind leading-edge solutions tailored to each skier and each foot shape. Irrespective of the skier’s style and foot shape, Lange offers an end-to-end range of ski boots,
delivering an anatomical fit to guarantee superior comfort and performance. The result is Ultimate Control. Lange has developed the Four Pillars Technology: Control Fit Tech, Natural Ski Stance, Choose your width and Mono Injected Shell.
1) Control Fit shell technology: Lange scanned the feet of 20,000 skiers from around the world with a new, state-of-the-art 3D imaging system. Through this analysis, Lange learned that most skiers benefit from a wider, asymmetrical toe box combined with a slightly narrower, more articulate ankle pocket than is found in most of our competitors’ products. We believe the combination of more room in the forefoot and more accuracy in the ankle delivers the best of both worlds: comfort and performance. Lange incorporates the features, practical techniques and attention to details that boot fitters have used for years to accommodate the hard to fit "deal breakers" that have traditionally impeded fit and sales. As all boot-fitters know, the difference is in the details, and our details must be seen to be believed.
2) Natural Ski Stance: Lange employs the unique Natural Ski Stance that allows skiers to stand a little straighter for more efficiency and less fatigue.
3) Choose your width: Lange offers its unique Choose Your Width option in order to fit more foot shapes better. Many of Lange's boots feature 2 distinct widths. RS, RX and XT are offered in 97mm and 100mm lasts. Construction and fits are consistent from 97mm to 102mm lasts. The 102mm last expands the comfort range selection without sacrificing performance. No compromise between performance and comfort!
4) Mono injected Shell: Injection technology based on the use of a single plastic material. Mono-injection delivers better ski performance than bi-injected, optimizes weight reduction and is much easier for boot-fitters to grind and punch.
