These boots are extremely well made and perform better than any other boot I've worn. The heel cup hold down the heel masterfully.
My only beef is that after only a few weeks one of the lace loops cracked. it still works but i would like to have had that not happen.
Very well made boots, the heel hold is the best of any boot I have tried on (great if you have problems with heel lift, like I do). The Fusion outsole really is smaller than other boots, I wear a size 10 and can fit them into a s/m binding no problem. The lacing system is a breeze and lets you customize the fit with the, uh, locking lace guide things. That said, this boot is definitely soft, considerably more-so after breaking it in when compared to trying it on in the store (to me it felt decently stiff in the store, but after 10 min of wearing it it softened up a lot). The shock absorption is less than other boots in this price range due to the minimized outsole design, but is still cushiony enough to stomp big landings. These boots do not stretch out as much a most other boots, after 3 days of hard riding they had maybe stretched out 1/4 of a size, so don't buy them too small thinking they will pack out b/c they won't...That said, if you want a soft boot with incredible heel hold and small profile to reduce heel/toe drag, then this boot is the best out there.
best boots i have owned...
this boot is awesome.. the lacing system is a breeze and they are way comfortable. the liner is sewn into the boot itself so it makes the entire boot alot smaller. the stiffness is perfect they are on the softer side but they don't hurt your feet if you go free ride all day..
only downside is they don't like to dry out because you cant remove the liner, so get some old tubes socks and fill them with rice, put them in the boot over night they will be dry by morning.. not my idea but works great.
Could spend weeks in these
These are super comfortable, very well-made, and fit perfectly. They give you a nice, small profile on your board, possibly allowing for a smaller binding size, and less toe/heel drag. Most boots bulk up to give you stiffness, but Salomon just makes them well
