Ok, I'm sick of my boots hurting my feet and it's time for new ones, and I have a few questions. I've heard nothing but good things about their boots. People tell these boots are good for wide feet is that true?(this would be good for me) Also I heard that I should go half a size smaller on spks because they pack out, do I need to do that with foils as well? And 1 last question, do foils and spks fit the same,would i wear the same size in each boot? Thank yas!
go to a good boot fitter, they'll know whether you'll need to goo smaller, the foils don't pack out that much, just go smaller if you're between sizes. yes they are good for wide or high volume feet, but the calfs are kinda small (something that people don't usually mention).
salomon boots, better than crack.

For God's sake go to a fitter, the whole reason you're buying new boots is cause the ones you have now hurt your feet, and if you go and buy a boot that you haven't even tried on, chances are good that you'll have the same problem with your new boots that you have now. And why do you want the SPK? Wait, stop. I'll tell you why...it's cause you heard they were a sweet boot for park riding that don't give you shinbang and all the guys are riding them this year. Well guess what, the SPK isn't all that and a bag of chips, the most important thing in a boot is that it fits YOUR foot the best, so go to a fitter and do it right. If you don't have a good fitter you can go to then try on every boot you can get your hands on, stay in each pair for at least 10-15 mins, walk around, test the flex, all that...then buy the pair that feels best. If there is one piece of ski gear you should never buy on hype it is most definitely boots.
