Rossignol BC X9 Backcountry Touring Boot

Boots are awesome.

So, my wife and I returned our Rossignol BC X5 ski boots to another seller who didn't carry the X9s. The X9s are a great boot and are made to last. That wasn't the case with the X5s...very weak strap on the X5s and they were too narrow. The same size in the X9s are perfect. So, as for long distance reports on their use...well, maybe next year. This year, Europe got our Michigan winter. I would suggest spending the extra $60 for the X9s since they are a substantially better boot.

has anyone had a problem with this boot pinching their toes (the little one) when the sole of the boot flexes?
Also, does anyone know if Rotefella makes the rubber bumber in different degrees of softness (range of motion) for their NNN Auto BC binding?

I've own these boots for 1.5 seasons, and I get blisters on my little toes whenever I ski for more than 2 or 3 hours! I'm seriously thinking about changing to different boots!! They've been good boots besides this.

Solid and comfortable
November 17, 2011
Nicely made, solid boot. In general try ons, it's a very comfortable boot. I especialy like the ratchet cuff. Unfortunately picked too large a size, so am sending them back. (I've already reordered and received the correct size.) They seem to run a bit long but width is right on. If you've tried on the BC X2's, the X9's are much more substantial.
Once it snows, I'll update on performance.
Backcountry service has been great.
