        Overall

        Sick boots. Not the best colors, but great performance.

        Performance

        These boots are awesome, truly. They're warm, a nice fit, and most importantly comfty. They have foam in them that fit to your foot shape, so after a few days you feel like your skiing in sneakers. Theyre absolutely immaculate for taking on and off, if youve ever had to live with shitty boots that are horrid for putting on/off, youve reached nirvana with these boots. They are really light for boots, which is great and they also have some extra umphf for big landings, with shock obsorber soles. Sick boots.

        Design

        They're basically a suped up x-wave boot in design. I like the blue and white, and the blue and red buckles and design are pretty cool, but I dont have a salomon setup so its not quite as cool as it could be. Still pretty cool.

        Value

        I got them for 200 dollars, I think they retail at 360, but either way good deal for a good boot.

        Characteristics

        I keep mine relatively flexy but they have a good range for park, whatever you need.

        Durability

        They keep their shape and comfty-ness for a long time. I hope to continue to use them for many more.

        Overall

        Probably one of the best boots you can get, realy comfortable and best support in every situation, no matter if your doing some freeride turns or throw out your best tricks at the park.

        Overall

        An excellent choice for anybody in need of new boots. Although these boots aren't as adjustable as some competitors, they are comfortable and do their job well.

        Design

        The boot has a full-length shock absorbing sole to cushion big landings. This is obviously a must for anybody skiing the park these days.

        These boots are very comfortable! The liner, flexible casing, and shock absorbing shell make for a comfortable fit. The second lowest buckle near the ankle can be moved to help keep your heal in place if your weight gets thrown forward.

        The buckles can be fined tuned by twisting the clip clockwise or counter-clockwise to adjust the clip length by a millimeter at a time.

        The overall boot weight is pretty low, making walking & skiing easier and more enjoyable. The heal piece can be changed if it wears out so as not to slip on cement walkways.

        Characteristics

        The boot casing is medium-soft, which provides excellent flexibility and movement. The boot has a carbonlink in the back which connects the bottom of the boot casing with the top. The idea behind this is to reinforce the top of the boot casing, without anchoring it to the base, allowing for good flexibility without sacrificing control.

        The boot also has an adjustable Canting lock, which allows you to adjust the boot's natural stance.

        Durability

        The plastic, liner and buckles all seem to be well made. The buckles are all titanium to cut down on weight while maintaining strength. Obviously it's hard to judge durability so early into the season, but I have no complains so far and hope believe these boots with hold up for many seasons.

        Overall

        this is a great boot for anyone looking to perform in the park and all mountain. If youre looking for a great boot at a somehwat low cost, buy these boots, you will not regret it.

        Performance

        I havent skied in the boot yet, but by wearing it around the house i can tell how goo it will be. they are so cushioney, and very flexible.

        Design

        I love the design. they are nice and wide to accomodate larger feet, and have plenty of toe room.

        Value

        The value of these boots is nice. for 379 you are getting a equal or better boot than most boots out there that are overpriced.

        Characteristics

        the flex is great for me as it is, but as the last guy stated, you can change it easily by turning the canting bolt on the side of the boot.

        Overall

        Get this boot because you won't regret it!

        Performance

        This boot is the perfect fit for my foot, which is great! I tried alot of other boots out on the market and none of them felt as good as this one.

        Design

        It has a great shock absorbing sole to cushion big landings. Also it has a Carbonlink on the back to adjust the natural flex if you want to add more flex to it. You can adjust the canting on the boot. It has custom heat moldable liners. It also has the spacecraft design on the sides for flex. And awesome graphic on the back.

        Value

        It was totally worth the money. Salomon doesn't rip people off. The only thing on the boot that you have to add/change is the footbeds.

        Characteristics

        The Salomon Foil Boot is 85 flex. This flex is great because it allows you to ski both Big Mountain and Park!

        Durability

        You could beat the shit out of this boot and it would still perform the same.
