“Functional, stylish, badass” were the three attention-grabbing adjectives that Switzerland’s Nidecker decided were the best way to sum up their women’s Lunar boots last year. And whilst almost every single molecule of life has changed dramatically in 12 months, the Lunar’s descriptive triplet has held fast into 2021. Once again, if you’re more often found crushing challenging lines through the pines than carving up the corduroy with the crowds, then you’ll like what you’re about to hear.
“If you’re more often found crushing challenging lines through the pines than carving up the corduroy with the crowds, then you’ll like what you’re about to hear”
Mid-stiff yet mellow for a more playful ride on the mountain, the Lunar keeps its promise of functionality with a slew of features designed to keep you out there for longer. Underfoot, Nidecker have slammed their trusty and lightweight B.F.T Vibram Ascent outsole for a won’t-let-you-down grip in the wildest of bootpacking conditions, whilst a Dual Zone Boa configuration – complete with all-new lace for 2021 – ensures that it’s delivering the most customisable shred-ready fit possible to your feet, and a solid hold on your heel.
Those of you looking for comfort whilst crushing their laps won’t be left disappointed either, as you’re getting Nidecker’s often gushed-over asymmetrical 3D Molded Tongue that, when thrown into the mix with the Silver-Level Thermo Heat Moldable liner, produces the greatest level of comfort the Lunar has ever offered.
And then there’s the all-important question of ticking the ‘stylish’ and ‘badass’ boxes. There’s no doubt that the Swiss snow masters have introduced a more feminine tinge to the Lunar for 2021 with a hit of blue and a muted, squint-and-you’ll-see-it floral pattern, especially when compared to last year’s meaty black and wine-stain colourway (a design we’re still pretty taken with). Then again, if there’s a more badass colourway out there than black-on-black, then we’re sure as hell yet to hear about it.
