The Salomon F22 Snowboard Boot gives you a smaller footprint. The operation is surprisingly comfortable. Salomon constructs the F22 using Fusion technology to reduce the shell of the boot. This size reduction reduces heel and toe-drag and a makes the boot more responsive to small movements of your foot.

Probably the best boot I've owned. Love the lacing system, it might seem complicated at first but after a few times, I like the system, easy to tighten, easy to loosen, and easy to adjust on the mountain. If you're looking for a smaller footprint boot and have a narrow foot, this might be exactly what you're looking for.
at the advice of the BC "gearheads", i went a half size smaller. great call! the fit is perfect, no heel-lift, and the molded footbed is awesome. i like the smaller footprint, but my toes do get a little chilly sometimes...
This boot, without question, is the best boot I have ever owned. Extremely light weight due to the fusion technology (combining outer and insole in one), this boot also leaves a foot print that is nearly a full size smaller in length and width (great for hiking and for big foots out there)
The fusion also makes for better boot to board feel with less materials between you and your board, the responsiveness is quite noticable.
I was skeptical of the new lace tightening system that Salomon has introduced. And though the boots do tend to loosen a bit over a day of hard riding, the simplicity of tightenting and locking will have you locked back in seconds.
The best part about this boot for me so far? Zero break in time...I mean none. No bruising, crushed toes, swollen feet, nothing.
To be quite clear, this is not a freestyle boot. If your looking for forgiveness on your squirrelly landing, this is not a boot for you. I still huck in these, but you best have your landing straight.
This boot is about a 7 in stiffness. Meaning it will keep you upright in the steep and deep, and respond with the quickness you need in the chatter, with minimal effort.
All in all I have yet to find a flaw other than they are not super cushy in the foot pad (the supplied insole is pretty good. A pair of Super Feet is even better) and they are not the warmest boots out there, but this is not my issue as my feet are always extremely warm.
This is my 2nd pair of Salomons (my last pair ran for 5 seasons with almost no wear on the outer shell). I won't ever ride anything else.

I have been using Salomon F22's for a number of seasons and want to get my hands on another pair. In the photo of the 2011 boot it appears that the sole of the boot is different from previous models and has been redesigned. My question is, has this affected the sizing of the boot is a size 28 (10) in my old boots going to be a match to the current size 28 (10) F22?
I need a help with sizing. My foot...
I need a help with sizing. My foot is 26 cm long. Should I order a pair 26 cm long or maybe longer e.g. 26,5. I wanted to check them in a shop but unfortunately I could not find a pair at my size in any shop in my city. I can add that I have a narrow feet and have ran earlier with a salomon symbio and their fit was good.
Thank in advance for you help.
Any other boot I'd say get the 26... But the F boots don't really pack out much and the toe box is pretty stiff as the liner is fused into the boot about mid foot... I'd really suggest finding an F Boot somewhere in that size... IF NOT, backcountry has an awesome return policy... If the 26 is too small return it or exchange it for the right size... Their return policy rocks! 100% no questions asked
