Leather on SPK Pro Models
How will this hold up?
I wanna get the Pro models and I think they look cool as well as having a fully moldable liner. and a few other things.
How well do you guys think this will hold up?
Cause I know my old boots had some cuts and shit on the inside part and if the leather just gets cut up and shit it would look like shit. anyone have any experience with these?
well, our friend drew has them. all the leather is frayed, and one of the rivets for the buckles popped out. but they warrantied them. so we'll see what happens with his second pair.
Get the 'new' Kaos for less. Same flex (95) and performance minus the almost certain wear and tear with the fabrics. Dope idea, it just needs a little more love to figure it out. Everybody's boots I saw with the overlay were shredded.Â
it's not like the custom fit are really moldable, they pack a little to make room for your feet and that's it.
not enougth cells to be heat moldable in my opinion.
exactly. your paying like 150 more for leather. wtf???
Alright, well it's less than $100 more for me, probably around $80, and I'm getting a good deal cause I know the guy at the shop so he's gonna give me a better price.
But is the general consensus that the Pro model doesn't have enogh features to pay an extra sy $80. The look of the leather is ind of growing on me. And let's say they do shred, Salomon will Warranty them right?
Oh, and I've already tried them on so before anyone says try them on first yada yada yada I already have and they fit very well.
so the SPK Kaos is the same as the SPK pro? (other than the heat moldable liner on the pro and the dumb leather)
the promodel has more heel padding, and i thought it was a siffer flex
but could be wrong
I think he's right on this...so it's the sweet leather, more padding, better liner...for $80
I got these this year for a steal, and to clarify
they have a gel type heel insert instead of a foam, they have multiple heat moldable areas, i'm pretty sure they are a bit stiffer
and they are baller and the most comfortably fitted boot i've tried
hey im getting a pair of spk pro models in a couple weeks do i just go to my local shop to have them heated and fit to my foot
