To anyone who has these (any year).. how many days of riding did they take to break in? I'm assuming they take longer than normal boots due to their stiffness.

Responded on

I ride Salomon boots exclusively over the years and even for the stiffness, the malamute had minimal breakin... all Salomon boots have minimal break in... these have no more/less then any other Salomon boot. Actually the only thing to really break in is where the laces lay and any molding to your foot... After a day or two of riding and retightening the laces (internal/external), the laces should lay flat, tight, and will eventually form to the boot... you could speed this up with a heat mold from your local store, do NOT use your oven...
