Cons: Takes some getting used to
I tried on every boot shell in my local area that made sense for my narrow heel,small ankle,low volume,B-C width forefoot. Boot fitters recommended, Lange RS,Salomon X3,Fischer RC4.....after being in a Doberman for most of this season I wanted anything but a race shell....the Salomon X3 was looking like THE BOOT,until I tried this boot on. Stock out of the box this boot felt great,I had room where I wanted it and tension where I needed it. One of the best features of this boot are the options,forward lean,flex and listen if you're tired of having your instep crushed give these boots a shot. I can't rate durability but I can say the more I ski them the more I like them. In fact I'll be looking for a pair of Pro ID so I have a firmer version for the good old eastern hard pack days!
