Great ski boot for almost anything, little stiff and thin for park though. If you have big legs dont even bother trying salomon boots, as far as I can tell they are made for average to thin legged people, and same for the toe box. Overall a great stiff boot for advanced skiers looking for good control and responsivness.
First off I have to say, although it may be obvious, you have to get aftermarket footbeds. superfeet work great for a cheaper than custom fit. If you do not get footbeds you will be hurting. I wear a size 10 shoe comfortable so with the boots I went with a 8.5. at first they were a bit to snug at my great toe but I had the toes blown out 1-2mm at a pro shop and it was pretty cheap. After that they felt great. These have been the best most responsive boots I have owned. they are very snug and comfortable, the sturdy buckles and large boot strap make sure of that. the boot strap especially I found very helpful. I didnt realize how effective the boot strap could be in securing your leg to the boot. As far as weight, they are pretty light as boots go but walking or hiking around the mountain will help you to remember you got ski boots on. I have rode these on just about all terrain and can say they are super solid. Steeps, trees and BC they feel very light and responsive, you jsut have to make sure you pay attention to the boot thinning out after a few runs, the park however is a different story. I love to ski park and do big jumps, spins and rails, but this isnt the best boot to do them in. the stiffness and the thin tongue are not to forgiving when jumping and/or spinning. I got pretty good shin bang after doing park for a while since there was nothing else to do this season in Utah. I would recommend that you get a little softer boot all around if you plan on spending alot of time in the park.
the clear shell design is pretty money, and the weightsaving hexagonal cutouts are pretty cool too.
All ski boots are ridiculously expensive, but if want quality you gotta put out. I got mine on end of season sale and still paid a lot of money
This boot is pretty stiff. the foward flex is forgiving if you push it but otherwise very sturdy.
Very durable puts up with lots of wear and scratching. the foot mold does get a little thin after a season of riding but not uncomfortably.
