Salomon vs. dalbello.
im lookin at 2 different boots the salomon spk kaos and i got a good offer on the dalbello il morro. which one is better for park/all mtn. there is no pipe at my mtn so im not worying about that.
If it doesnt matter who wins or loses than why do they keep score?...
i'm not positive so excuse me if i'm wrong, but i believe the il moro is narrow and i know for a fact the SPK is wide. So if you have a wide foot go SPK, but honestly, the best way to buy a boot is to go try it on, don't order online unless you've actually been fitted for the boot.
so well put. best way to figure out which one to get is to try them on.
i cant do that though cause i dont have a dealer that has them in stock.
see if your dealer will order them for you of if they have something with a similar last, then order them off of a legit site like evogear.com and make sure they take returns. this way, you can try it on and send it back if you don't like the fit. however, you're going to have to pay the shipping on the return which will run you around 20 dollars. unfortunatly that's your only other option.
both boots are sick, but salomon will end in shin bang and boot falling apart, and dalbello il morro will end in pure greatness!
these two are not a comparison. Il Moros are a tighter fit (98mm) while SPKs are about the widest boot you can get(like demo wide). Don't buy a boot based on features if you don't know it fits. For Salomon vs Dalbello, if you want to compare Kryptons(or Moros) with a Salomon boot, it should be Falcons.(Falcon CS or F9 in 08 is 90 flex, alot like the gold tongue, Falcon 10s are 110 and a lot like the black tongue, and Falcon CS Pros(Falcon 120 I think it was in 08) is a bit stiffer than the Moros w/black tongues and both rivets in). The person who said Salomons lead to shin bang, kinda right.. If you get one shell size to big in a Salomon your shins are gone for the season if you ski that a few times after the liner is packed out. Also when the footbeds in Salomons flatten it leads to shin bang too. So for Salomons this is the order of how to make the boots good: Get good liners that won't pack out(like all Salomons), get good footbeds if the liners come with bad ones, get Booster Straps that you use OUTSIDE the shell(using inside is the way they say to, but getting them in Salomon shells is annoying and it can cause upper shin bang) and it will increase performance, and get a good pair of socks(and a rubber bootboard if the boots you get do not come with one).
lucky for you the decision is easy; one will fit you and one will not
Or niether will fit. It is comparing race and demo fit, no medium.
All times are Eastern (-4)
