Salomon is a ski company. Now they make snowboards and gear. I started snowboarding in 1989 (I think that makes me "core") and would only wear boots made by Airwalk, Burton and Vans. I wasn't going to be seen wearing gear made by a ski company (even though I grew up skiing). Then I dated a girl in Big Sky who hooked me up with a pair of Salomon Malamutes because I desperately needed a new pair of boots. Yes, she really liked me.
Anyway, Although it was against my moral standards to wear a pair of Salomon bootsI was broke, and the boots were much more comfortable than the old, packed-out pair I had rocked the previous two seasons. So I gave them a shot. After a 100-day season in the Malmutes (like I said, I'm "core") I was hooked and decided never to go back to any of my old standby brand of boots. I also decided never to go back to the girlfriend, mainly because she was cheating on me, but I also didn't want to give the boots back. Now it's 2012 and I still have my old Malamutes, but decided it was time for a new pair. I purchased the Synapse and they have changed my life. They are stiff, not as stiff as the malamutes, but stiff. Super responsive and light as a they come. People now look at me different. I'm popular, I get tons of chicks and I'm not self conscious about wearing them without pantsI used to be. I don't know what Salomon puts in the Synapse Boots, but it gets me tingly all over every time I think about it. Buy the Synapse Boots, wear them to Yoga, be happy.
What the heck is wrong with Salomon sizing?
I rated these boots as 4 stars because the boots are great (my second pair) once you find the right size. Salomon has a serious math problem with their sizing charts.
My old Salomon boot tongue said 12.5 shoe size, 30CM. I wanted a bit smaller fit so I ordered a 29CM, which backcountry.com said was an 11 shoe size. I only wanted to go down one shoe size (to an 11.5), but figured 1 CM was a good enough decrease. I got the boot and the box says a 29 CM is a 10.5 shoe size instead of 11. I agree with the box, as the 29 CM was a tad bit too short for me. How can my first pair of boots be 30 CM = 12.5 shoe size and now the box says 30 CM = 11.5 shoe size. I understand the mondo sizing system and such, but Salomon's box and boot tongue say CM and are in conflict with each other. It's crazy that to downsize one shoe size, I needed to order the exact same CM size as before (30). Very confusing, and caused me several shipments back and forth with backcountry.com to figure out this issue. Of course, backcountry.com took care of me and got me the right boot, but I feel bad they had to spend money on Salomon's issue.
Picture below shows the old boot tongue, new boot tongue, and Salomon box...all in conflict with each other.
Can anybody tell me much smaller the toe...
Can anybody tell me much smaller the toe box is than the wide dialogue model?
Hey there, I have both the synapse and dialogue in wide... I don't know how much bigger they are than the non wide version, but they fit like my 4E New Balance shoes I usually wear...
