x wave 10 vs x wave 8

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
I tried on a salomon x wave 8 and liked the fit but I was looking for a bit stiffer boot because I am 6'3" and about 210. They did not have an xwave 10. Do you think the fit will be similar? I have a wider foot and the 8's felt comfortable.

Thanks in advance for your help.

The fit is the same, the only difference there would be is that the 10 uses a nicer liner with denser materials.

I ski the 10 and think its kind of soft. I don't think a guy your size would be happy in the 8.

and the 10 has the extra Tnuts on the back of the shell to make it stiffer...

same fit

Either the Xwave 9 or 10 will have a better quality liner than the Xwave 8, but fit should be the same.

I just upgraded from the 8s to the 10s.

I am 6'2 and 200lbs and glad to have made the switch. The 8s were the most comfortable boot I've even owned, but they were just too soft. I haven't skied the X10s, but the fit is pretty much identical to how my 8s felt when they were new. The flex feels much stiffer.

Thanks for your help, I just bought a brand new pair of 2005's online(not sure if they are 2005-2006) for $200.00. If they fit like the 8's they should make me really happy. What do you guys think about the boot inserts that raise up your arch? When I was trying on boots I put one in and it felt pretty good.
