I admire you zest in defending your competitors, however how else do you explain selling as many units of a sub par product as salomon did without marketting? The Quest series is a certainly not a home run for consumers, but it did make Salomon a pile of cash...to assume marketing had nothing to do with it would be naive, don't you agree?
As far as Salomon goes, well they have been around a while so they must have made some good products along the way...it remains to be seen whether or not they have lost their passion for making ski products (because they certainly haven't lost any love for making money).
Better luck in the future Salomon. Do work!
Just because you add the word fucking doesn' t make you right my friend.
It is obvious you have not tried out the Super Blaster. Or any of the competitions boots. Most boot manufacturers have realised the need for a good walking feature for sidecountry access for years.
No doubt the boot fits alot of feet well, Salomon has alot of experience with boot mould over the years. However, there are numerous companies with similar and better features (beyond Fulltilt) without the quality hiccups.
Don't take it personally. It is a boot.....relax.
