The Salomon Men's F20 Snowboard Boot gives you the low-profile fit and mid flex you need for jibbing urban rails or hitting backcountry booters. The Low Center of Gravity liner gives you direct board feel and features memory foam panels for a pressure point-free fit. A special insert in the tongue provides a progressive flex—the more you tighten the Powerlace Pro lacing, the stiffer this lightweight boot becomes. That way, the F20 can be soft enough for jibbing, yet still provide enough support for dropping into the pipe. The Impact outsole dampens vibrations, cushion impacts, yet doesn’t sacrifice board feel.

I currently wear an 8.5 in the Malamute. Would I be the same size in these? After a soft flexy boot
Unbelievable comfort and Control
BEST BOOTS I EVER OWNED! I I ridden ride, 32 . DC and Burtons in the past and nothing measures up! rode these boots all last year and got 100+ days from them. I loved these so much I ordered 2 more pairs. If you like boots soft get these! Great thing is these f20s are versiitle iif you want to stiffen them you just have to lace um up tighter. Boots are so comfortable feels like your riding on air and they have super low volume resulting in extreme lightweight and dialed in fit. you wont be dissapointed.
Nice but just didn't fit right.
These boots looked really good and felt decent when I first tried them on. Riding was a different story. It seems my feet were a little too wide for these boots and I had some pressure points. Also, my feet get cold easily and I feel that the low profile of these boots causes a loss of material for warmth. So if you have somewhat wide feet that get cold easily I would not recommend these. I picked up the dialogues instead and found they fit much better and were warmer.
Still great, but not what they used to be.
I just picked up a pair of this year's version of the F20. It was to be the third pair and the third version of these boots that I've owned. The F20 is the first and only boot out there that I've found that holds my heel in place. The same is true of this year's version. Some things have unfortunately changed though. The new version of the F20 is significantly softer than in previous years. Two years ago the F20 easily could've have been used for splitboarding and backcountry freeriding (I still use mine from 2 years ago for this purpose and they're fantastic!). The flex pattern of this year's model, however, is definitely more at home in the park than the backcountry. I returned the F20s and picked up the F24s instead. Funny thing...the flex on the new F24 is almost identical to the flex on my two year old F20s! Salomon still makes the best boots on the market in my opinion, but it looks like they're designs may be trending more to the freestyle end of the spectrum. Just my two cents. Enjoy the ride!
Fit me feet great!!
I have long skinny feet. Size 12 or 13 deppending on the shoe, most boots have too much side to side extra room for me. But Solomon boots always fit me just right! I have an older pair of these. I love them.
do they run true to size? say I wear about...
do they run true to size? say I wear about a 12.5-13 shoe, would I fit fine into a 12.5
For sure a 12.5 would be good. Snowboard boots just as a general rule pack out about a quarter to half a size. So the smaller the better.
Super Drylicious n Comficious
These boots are radical. The flex is off the chain and with the pull system your set to really tighten up or loose goose it up. Also this fusion stuff is sick! I have humungus foot syndrome and have always had problem with toe and booty drag over the board, but these boots make my size 14s ride like 12s. Its ridiculous. Buy them right now!
