Female Athletes & Boots Month Ski Week: Julia Mancuso

Great Boot Quotes in History:
"Uh, Boot Nation. We have a problem" - The Crew of Apollo 13 upon realizing there were no knee-high boots on the Moon.
Female Athletes and Boots Month - Alpine Week
Julia Mancuso
Julia Mancuso is the ideal Boot Nation heroine. She is beautiful, successful and does whatever she wants. On skis, that means Julia wins races and Olympic medals. Mancuso won the gold medal in the Giant Slalom at the 2006 Winter Olympic Games in Turin, Italy. Four years later, Julia won two silver medals in the Downhill and Combined events. Julia's three Olympic medals at the most any female alpine skier has ever won during her Olympic career. In addition, Julia competed in the 2002 Winter Olympic Games in Salt Lake City Utah. Lastly, Julia has has seven wins on the World Cup circuit, including the 2012 season. 
Boot Nation loves Mancuso because of her power though. During the 2006 and 2010 Julia wore a plastic tiara during her races and she proved to be worthy of a queen. Julia's success is not limited to the slopes, however. Mancuso started her own lingerie line called Kiss My Tiara. Julia has also been an underwear model and modeled for Lange snow boots. 
Julia also wears knee high grey boots too! Julia plans to compete in her forth Olympic Games in Sochi, Russia in 2014. We hope to  see a lot more of Julia wearing her boots & tiara and winning medals in the future.
