You've been saying you want to get your own Nordic setup for the last few winters, and you've tried it enough times to know Classic's the way for you right now. Don't procrastinate again this year. Your first solitary morning on snowy trails looking out at the mountains will have you wondering why it took you so long in the first place. Give your feet a comfortable, responsive platform for your soujourns in the snow by pairing the Rossignol X-8 Classic Boot with your skinny skis. Sitting towards the top of Rossignol's classic boot offerings, the X-8 features an approachable construction that intermediate and advanced skiers will be able to grow with, rather than out of. As you fine-tune your kicks and glides, you'll have the support of an externally reinforced heel counter providing stability and consistent power transfer. This heel counter pairs with the shoe's polyurethane sole to deliver your energy into the skis, without being so rigid as to become uncomfortable during longer, less pace-driven workouts. The X-8 will jump into an impromptu race with you as eagerly as it will head onto the trails with no set agenda. Whichever type of workout you're doing, heat the thermo-adjustable liner to follow the shape of your foot to lessen the likelihood of blisters and hot spots, and kick hard knowing the PVC cover will keep spare snow on the trails, rather than in your speed laces and socks.

The pika is a close relative of the rabbits and hares, with two upper incisors on each side of the jaw, one behind the other. Being rock-gray in color, pikas are seldom seen until their shrill, metallic call reveals their presence.
