Pros: fit, comfort, performance

Cons: ummm...let me get back to ya.

I've been skiing since 1975, and have owned many boots, Lange, Dynafit, as well as earlier Nordicas. I must say these are the best ever.  I am a tall, aggressive skier - (yes, still - stay active, kids!) And I believe the highest praise I can give these boots is, I NEVER THINK ABOUT THEM when I'm skiing. I'm not thinking "ouch, I need to adjust that buckle", or "my heel's lifting too much, need to do something about that". All I'm thinking is, "Wow, what a great run!" or occasionally, "OH S**T!" But the boots are just part of me.  And here's the kicker... when I drop in the lodge for a snack, I DON'T HAVE TO UNBUCKLE THEM!  I know, weird, huh? But true.  Bottom line...

Maybe the perfect boot

Pros: Adj flex, comfort lining, highly customizeable

Cons: None

These boots fit the bill.  No crazy designs or frills, just a solid boot.  I have found that the shell iner is highly customizable allowing these Nordicas to fit better than any other boot.  Easy to adjust flex, I set them at 100 flex on cold days or when warming up.

Love them

Pros: Comfort!

I love these boots! I have quite narrow feet and these boots fit like a glove. I agree with goblue, they can be a pain to get into but once they are on they are warm and comfortable. I have the 2008/2009 model and dont see me changing them any time soon!

Pros: Fits my foot

Cons: Hard to buckle

Tried on many boots before trying the SM10.  This boot fit! No hard spots anywhere. My only issue with them is I had to move the upper buckle to the "outer" setting in order to be able to close it.  Boots are warm and fit very well. Can ski all day in comfort.

Pros: Great comfort for high level of performance

Cons: Hard to get on & off

These boots give all the performance a strong skiier needs for anything short of racing, without sacrificing comfort. The only problem I have with them - and maybe I'm just nostalgic for my rear-entry Salomon SX-91's - is that they're sufficiently stiff that I have a hard time pulling the tongue far enough forward to get in or out of them easily. But, once buckled in, they're comfy.I thought they were plenty warm, even for a full day in well below-zero conditions. When I first tried them on the heel cup seemed is a little wide, and I got too much heel lift, but my bootfitter replaced the stock footbed with an orthotic footbed  (~$20 off-the-shelf, not custom)  which solved that problem,...

Pros: Good fit, cheaper than others

Cons: Liner is cheap and cold, some heal slop

I got these b/c my local shop screwed up and sold me a pair that didnt fit at first, so a month later i went back with bruised shins, and this is all they had left.  Granted they fit me pretty well, but the heal is a little wide, and doesn't really grip the foot in, and the liner is kind of cheap.  also my feet are always cold in these boots, dont know why.  I wouldn't really call them a expert boot but they are solid.  Will replace when I can though
