Your back isn’t what it used to be, but simply being
old an adult shouldn’t condemn you to losing that “king-of-the-slopes” hipness you once exuded. The snowboard-inspired ECCO Roxton GTX Snowboard boot ($200) helps you look the part (without disclosing how many times you’ve really hit the mountain this winter). Oiled leather and textile uppers and a wool lining with lambskin highlight this modern footwear. A Gore-Tex membrane and removable felt inlay sole lock out winter slush and ensure comfort; the rugged treads keep you firmly planted. Now, just lose the puffy neon green coat and pretend those lift passes on the zipper aren’t from three years ago.
