Soft Boots Anyone?
Hey everyone i have hair line fractures on both tibias, so... i'm looking for new boots to use for the rest of the season in the park. Right now i've got salomon course and they're pretty stiff (120). I'm looking into the salomon verse and rossig soft 1, anyone have any experience with either of those boots? I've thought of the 1080, but its still fairly stiff.
The 1080 boot rocks....put the rivets in to get a little bit stiffer. I was using a 120 flex till about a month ago...bif difference. I found the ski even flexs/carves better with the softer boot. Unfortunately..in the park shin bang occurs while learning....I have the worst shin bang right now from trying to learn new stuff...but the softer boot helps...

get raichle flexons if they fit. softer than most, but they kick ass anywhere. never been more comfortable skiing, they're the best.
K, so i found a sweet deal through REI for the rossigs and just picked em up for 250. I've ridden 1 day on em so far and here's what i have to say. Comfy boot for sure, squishy is my best adjective. Extremely giving when pushing your weight forward. The only bad side to them that i've seen so far thats majorly diff from my salomon courses is that they're not as responsive. In other words i don't control my skis as well with them, taking another fraction of a sec to put on edge. I do agree with hall and raps that these are great boots for sessioning the park though.
get those line bindings, theyre the raichle boots, but softer, and more shin padding.
