Need new boots!
i have worn through the toe pieces and heel pieces in my current boots past the point where i can replace them, the result is that they no longer are solidly held in my bindings (prereleasing). i have a wider foor, like a lighter boot. i was thinking Mojos, 1080 Foils, or something else. lange makes narrow boots which usually don't fit me. they will be for park, all around, booters, and steeps, but i am looking more for comfort and lightness. i am looking for imformation on these boots, and possibly other suggestions you might have. thank you.
go with what fits your foot the best and definetly get some cork superfeet. (as long as you have some sort of arch)any good ski shop can fit you correctly and get you in the boot that will perform the way you want it to. make sure to get your foot measured also. ive sold boots for 7 years now and hardly any one knows their true foot size.good luck.
salomons tend to fit wider, so depending what you like to ski get the 1080 or spk boot if you like park, or x8 or 9 if you're more hinted towards freeride.. , and throw some of the green super feet (maximum shock absorbtion) in em.
'trapped in yourself, break out instead. beat that machine that works in your head.'
the mojo's have an adjustment feature in them, so they flex like park boots or like pro gun model boots. they're pretty good, and so are x-wave 8's for freeriding^^^. foils own as well.
i've heard good things on the kryptons?
someone else can reinforce that.
gracias, i am currently stuck in the casa, had the wisdoms yanked today, so i can't goto a shop for a couple days, but i want some ideas so i can research pricing, seeing as i have all day. keep the info and suggestions coming.
1080 foils are dope...theyre mad comfortable and they got shock absorbing soles...so its straight for gettin air and ridin rails
mojo's yes are defintly an option, the pro gun model is probably not.. they fit very tight, and if you cant wear a lange you probably wont like the race like fit it provides... and x-wave 8 is a great boot but kinda useless in mine mind because if ur gunna go that soft of a freeriding boot you may as well get the 1080, versus if you want a stiffer boot that you can ride everywhere then ball up to the xwave 9 or 10... as far as kryptons go, once againist i doubt they will fit you if you didnt like langes... i as well have 1080's and i as well dont fit langes, or kryptons very well at all.... another boot to try wood be the nordica beast.. really nice boot that fits wide and generally when i boot fit alot of guys who like the 1080 like to the beast as well....
hope that helped

too small, im like 28.5 if its a wide boot, 29 or 29.5 for most
atomic makes a wide fit boot. i have a wide foot and the B9 fit me best.
"that was crazy like a pineapple"
i have wide feet also and the foils were a match in heaven, so look into the foils, plus search the net and you can find some really good deals on the foils right now, but like others said you might want to try them on first but in my case i already had salo boots (26.5) and knew how they fit so i went with a 27 in foils and they were perfect. try to find the stores that have closeouts in your size because you can really save a shit load of money.
If you have semi-wide or wide feet don't get the Krypton at all, I have narrow feet and after the lining packed out I can't stand them because my ankle hits the inside of the boot shell, they do flex amazingly though.

I have 9XWave by salomon.......they are wide and comfy for my feet. I just bought some insoles for the park and they rock man......anywhere.....the 10Xwaves.....i find they are a little to stiff for what i am looking for.....but give the XWave a try man....stiff enough for everything.....and wide for comfort.
Matman10: Man lat you had that 7 down but you binder poped off
Laterails:Yeah i think they aren't adjusted, or it could be the fact that all that is holding them together is one of my pubes
Go to a reputable shop. Don't ask online. It depends so entirely on your foot.

alright, went to a shop yesterday (for fitting, they had terrible prices) and it's is between the 1080 foils and the MOjos. any thoughts on which one?
whatever one felt better... and most shops are going to have "terrible" prices, its called retail... but they shood have somewhat decent prices at this time of year.. but either way, buy from a shop, not online.. buying boots online is horrible because if something needs to be customized for you(like boot bumping or footbeds) then you want a local shop whos behind you

i was just saying the shop i went to had horrible prices, like 500 for mojos and 450 for 1080s, so i obviously wasn't going there, i have time today, so ill look at other shops in the area.
i was thinking about these, but in comparing it to the 1080 foil, which is cheaper, it would perform worse all mountain. that's why i'm looking around now for the best deal on either the 1080 foil or MOJOs in 28 or 28.5 (same shell size, with custom insole wouldn't matter anyway)
aren't half sizes to deal with width of the foot....could be wrong. I would personally recommend some rossi softs... no shin bang....but may be a little to soft for all around preference
sw 1440..ugh... so tj last week, so played out
half sizes have the same shell size (plastic part), the padding is different as is the insole.
actually in some boots not only is the shell the same but the liner is as well.. the only difference in some boots is merely the insole(which means there literally identical if you use custom footbeds)...

yeah it is just how think the actual sole is

went with 1080 foils in 28.5, i was lucky, my local shop had a return this week, so they had my size, and it was $80 cheaper than anywhere else i'd seen, including online.
