Best Ski Boots Ever


Pros: Easy on, easy off, easy adjustment, ideal heal hold-down vector, great performance

Cons: Not available anymore

We need Salomon to bring back their rear-entry ski boots.  Please sign this petition and get your friends to sign.  We want to let Salomon know that we are ready to buy these boots if they bring them back.  If they need to make some improvements, then fine.  I would be OK if they just try this model, the SX91 Equipe.  However, I believe that the whole rear-entry design concept needs to be brought back.  Ski racers never took to these boots.  Who cares?  I just want the combination of performance and comfort that I got with these boots and have been lacking in every pair of boots I have bought since I was forced to retire my SX91's.  ...

Negative Reviews


fun while it lasted


Pros: easy on / fun and useful fitting adjustments/ really felt cutting edge at the time

Cons: i have since believed that a series of knee injuries were due to the biomechanics of this boot

i would NEVER ski these again.   the knee injuries went away when i stopped using these!  they were the coolest at the time!!

Had the best skiing in my life in those boots!


Pros: Instant flex adjustment, easy on/off & walk around

Cons: My high instep got killed

Me and my mullet loved those boots! All over Colorado, Utah, Wyoming, Oregon, and heli-skiing in Canada.Bought them at the Gart Brothers Sports Castle in Denver. They bit my high instep hard but after much grinding and elaborate modifications got them to fit my abnormal feet. Then it was all fun until someone broke into my Bronco in Las Vegas (enroute to Taos) and stole them.   The single best thing about those boots was the instantly adjustable flex - super cold morning and the boots were stiff - back it off. Warm afternoon and boots were soft but wanted to go high speed - stiffen them up. Popping the release and walking around was really nice too.   These days I spend...

Best freaking boot I ever owned!


Pros: super, SUPER light, every adjustment you could ask for,


cant/cuff / whole back could angled left,center or right, Most people probably never took advantage of this when they NEEDED it and some blamed the boot.  fwd lean, FLEX-stifness OR softness took ONE SECOND. PERIOD. Feeling your oats- having a day where your spot on- cant do anything wrong and want to attempt a killer personal best run but ... oh yeah, these ARRRE comp boots as well! reach down turn the tab one or two turns- NOW their comp boots tightened to 96mm! ADJ. the flex up - DONE! Go for it! LET ER RIP! They are soo easy to instantly adjust to whatever your attitude and terrain requiress! MY liners finally started to de-laminate, after 20 YRS! I found a pair a...

Rear entry


Pros: easy on and easy in the lodge/line

Cons: cold, stiff,

First boots I owned.  Got them in the PX in Germany.  I was ready to move on to expert skiing and slopes, and, twenty-three years later, I still am!

Some folks still swear by them. I'd still have mine if the lining hadn't disintegrated after 25 years of hard use.
