I've searched a bit for this here and in other forums. While it may seem strange, I have yet to try a new boot that feels as good as my old Salomon SX-92 Equipe R's. The last few seasons I've been in X-Waves and Impacts, and tried on roughly 15 different boots in the store, but nothing seems to have the fit and function of my old 92's. I know that rear-entry boots get a bad rap, but the Equipe R's seemed to have quite a bit of performance features that the basic "rental" rear-entry boots lacked.
So the question is ... what am I really giving up with the 92's vs today's boots? It seems to me that the performance is the same if not better than the "new" overlap boots I've tried.
As second question ... would a 3-piece like Full-Tilt/Krypton/Daleboot be a better transition for me than a traditional 4-buckle overlap? I tried on some Daleboots but have not been able to try the other two.
Thanks for all your responses. I'm just trying to get that old feeling back (of course, losing 20 years could always help )
