I have a Boot question

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
My current boots are getting a little thrashed and I think it's time for some new ones.

I went to see a bootfitter and I tried on many different boots. The one that fit the best was the salomon pro model. Its on sale right now too, killer deal.

I'm 6'3 170 w/o gear and ski on Atomic R:EX and Volkl G4s. I ski quickly and agressively on the groomed (rarely passed) though I ski more off piste sttep and trees. by PSIA i guess I'd be a level 8 or so.

The bootfitter seemed to feel that this boot would be a good match to my skis, feet and abilities.

I'd like some more opinions on the boot before I buy it. what do you all think about the boot?

Thak you all for any input

It doesn't matter what brand the boot is, it is how it fits your foot. If these fit you and since you worked with a bootfitter properly...get them. Old saying...:Once you hit oil...STOP drilling!"

That's true, but the guy had a limited selection of other boots. I sort of like to know a bit about whatever I might be buying in the future, and if there are other, comparable products I should know about

Liquidnails, did you shell fit them? How did the shell match your foot? If the shell matches, you're good. My experience (a number of years ago) was that the liner had a lot of fill in the heel area to make it feel snug--but it packed out. Not saying that such is the case with you, mind you...!

If the shell approximates your foot and they felt that well, stick a fork in ya...you're done!

yep. we shell fit the boot, and it was the best of those we tried.

i could even get it on and off with ease!

What type of foot do you have? The course sc uses the narrower course last with a thinner "my custom fit liner" Does not pack out that much. You need to make sure the shell size in length is small, finer to finger and a half. The boot will get longer because of the subtle liner construction.
The heel tends to stay pretty tight if these parameteres are followed,
It is a great boot!!!
