First post here :)
I am finally pulling the trigger on getting my first pair of Ski boots.
I am a intermediate skier, working to become advanced during this Winter season. I'm 1,68, 65 kilos and fit a 26.5. Agility is probably my strongest point.
Comfort and a sporty performance is what I am looking for, considering that I want to keep the boots for the coming years and to accompany me in my skill growth.
Today went to a local big store, where the selection of ski material is gigantic and had a look at the following:
Salomon Mission 8 RS
My favorite of those I tried, comfortable space in the front for my toes.
Atomic Hawx 80
Too tight around the foot for me. Pretty aggressive design though.
Tecnica Viva Phoenix 80
Interesting boot, very comfortable, but somehow the Salomon fit a bit better.
My questions are:
1. Is the Salomon Mission 8 RS a good boot?
2. What other brands and boots should I try?
3. What should I pay attention to in regard to boot care?
Thanks in advance for your advice and help!
