I have just about used this boot for two seasons and can admit that I never in my life regretted a purchase as much as I regretted this.
Previously I had boots with varying quality and slowly approached me stiffer and better boots. Now that I would upgrade, I let myself be talked about how good Salomon Custom Shell would conform to my feet and how amazing this boot was. Well, after "casting" and a fake smile as dismissal from the vendor at Intersport, I thought I now found a boot that will be with me for many years.
Unfortunately, I felt more or less directly to this boot is the most marketing and very little real joy. The boot is horribly uncomfortable to wear. Custom Fit by all means but one boot pinches ate in my case over one ankle. If one tightens the boots in the slightest so I lose quickly numb toes and both feet start to go numb (the consequence is that it freezes your toes due to poor blood circulation). Wiggling your toes now and then you can forget for it does not solve the fundamental problem that they tighten everywhere. Not even when you snap them up completely so they become really loose.
Another negative part, but not so great, is that the boots are hard plastic soles and no rubber at all over. It can become very slippery indoor and they wear fairly quickly if you need to go a bit longer distances in them.
Have you read all the way down here and think I just sound bitter and maybe you're right. But I had very high expectations for these boots. Sure, it might have a lot to do with my feet and a bit with boots but I've never had problems with either boots or shoes and think I have normal feet.
Is there anything positive at all then?
Yeah, tell me how, if you can take those skis on top of the hill and take them off the bottom, this is a fantastic boot. But if you must wear them all day so drop anyway, I'm happy to ski very fast and it feels like it might set off how well they can convey power down the slopes and everything else beautiful that you can read in the product description.
