Salomon 27.5 Plug boots

post #1 of 16
Thread Starter 
I have a pair of never used Salomon Plug boots for sell. They are 27.5 and are still new in the box. Since they are plug boots they WILL require that you spend some quality time with a local boot fiter, but once you get these babies dialed in there going to last! I am also including a set of the Salomon boot lifts as well. These boots are by far one of the highest performing ski boots ever made and are extremly hard to find via normal retail chanels. My asking price is $325.00

It depends, on how they "sized" your in the 28.00 if you only had 1 finger of room than no, if they sized you with the standard two fingers of space that most shops use for the average skier than yes they will (provided that you are willing to put a ton of time into the project). Plug boots are a special breed of boots and no mater how narrow your foot is, or how close it is to the last, they will require you to spend a lot of quality time with a competent boot fitter.

don't know about that. I would wear a 26 shell in an X-wave 10 but I ski in a 27 Salomon X2 Plug.

I an skeptical that a guy who wears a 28 retail salomon boot would downsize in a Salomon plug.

Great boot but must be sized right. Is it the "Soft" plug?

It's not a soft plug. Since the plastics is almost twice as thick as a standard boot, it is possible to do a lot more grinding and stretching of the shell, so you can with enough work, make the half size adjustment. Remeber these boots are desinged to use an extremly thin linner, so it is a must to make sure that the shell matches every curve of your foot.

Ahh...Hello...Plug boots should ALWAYS be downsized. There shouldn't be any 'fingers' of space. That is what the extra thick plastic is for, you grind away material until you have enough room. NO ONE who has any business in a Plug upsizes over their consumer boot size.

Not true. Some people do upsize, since they are buying the boots with the intent of modifying them. I.E. grindin the soles so that they can put vibram soles on them. Plug boots are ideal for this since most non plug boots have hollow soles and cant be ground down far enough to accomidate the vibram.

MBT you're right that some people are putting vibram soles on plugs, I look at that as the same as spending $50,000 to soup up a Civic enough to compete with a $1200 Nova with a big block in a drag race.
$300 + $60hr X multiple hrs fitting, repeat. OR real AT boot, less support but it won't remove all the skin from your heels and ankles when you try to walk. Garmont and Scarpa both make AT boots with replaceable DIN sole and Vibram soles. A better tool for the job.

'plug boots' so now that's the hip thing for exteme wannabe's, put vibram soles on boots designed for world cup ski racing. Can't wait till skiing isn't cool any more .

Search ebay for - Salomon X2 I got a pair for $99 from a shop in Canada to replace my older X2's they arrived new in the box- perfect! They had many sizes available in the X2 (the Salomon plug race boot) At that price you cannot go wrong.
