Best boots and I tried them all
The season before last I tried on just about every top of the line boot out there. Most felt like clunky sponges or worse, were riddled with pressure points. I also noticed that many weren't able to pull the heal down very well, even the BOAs.
Then I tried the Salomons and the fit was incredible the instant I tried them on. The lacing system seemed funky (I thought I wanted BOAs) but as soon as I pulled on the handle my heal was locked in place. Absolutely no pressure points. The boots also have a very close feel to the sole. If you want low profile and great sensativity and incredible fit, the Salomons are the only thing that I can recommend at this point.
Getting ready to go the third season now, IT'S SNOWING RIGHT NOW. The boots have some wear around the lace eyes, but I think they'll last at least one more season. No comparison to my old Burton Ions. Did I say LIGHT WEIGHT. VERY. Do yourself a favor and just try the Salomons on. I knew instantly they were THE ONES.
