Materials: Plastic bottom/leather upper
Use: Mountaineering w/ heavy pack
Break-in Period: one week
Price Paid: $325
Love them! I've used them for glacier travel, low angle ice, rock, snowshoeing, and hiking. Rainier in summer and several Colorado 14ers in winter and my feet have always been comfy and warm. My feet have never blistered in these boots and have never been wet. Salomon's water proofing is exceptional.
I have slightly wide and very flat feet. The factory soles work fine and the internal lacing system locks my feet in snug.
The only wierd thing about these boots is that the tungs are different lengths!? They don't effect fit or comfort, but the left tung is about an inch longer than the right - no big deal I guess (just a factory mess-up).
