I currently have a pair of Salomon F22's and love them.. but over the years they have broken down and are not as stiff as I would like so I tried out the Malamutes. These boots are for riders that like to charge big lines at high speed and need the stiffness to maintain maximum control. These things are tanks! Very well build, especially when you have them next to another boot you will see how compact and designed they are. They have some nice bells and whistles such as a moldable toe-box and adjustable internal heal strap. My next pair of boots will be these, hope I can find a pair in my size at the end of the season.
BTW my F22's are old, very old and they just keep truck'n. I am 100% sold on Salomon boots!
