I've been using Dalbello Il Moros for 10 years ago, got fitted in 2007 (I think?) for Il Moros and they served me well for a long time. Now the liners are worn out, the ratcheting upper buckle has teeth missing so it no longer tightens far enough, but the biggest problem is my foot seems to have changed shape so that they now crush my big toes.
After much trial and error I was put in a Salomon QST 130. It feels great, excellent heel retention and no hot spots. The flex feels much softer than 130, feels more like 110 to me, pretty much the same as my old Il Moro (which is billed as 120, but is softer than other 120's I tried).
Has anyone here used the QST boots? Any experiences to share positive or negative?
How was it after heat molding?
Also, the Salomon website seems to indicate that the shell is moldable but doesn't say how it is done, does it need to be done by a shop or can it be done at home?
