I'm looking for a stiffer boot that you can shread in all day long. I have a size 11 pretty normal foot. Kinda skinny in the heel and pretty wide flat toe area, I guess you can say I have very picky feet and takes me a while to adjust to new boots
So what do you guys recommend? I'd love to just throw and a new pair and not have to worry about pressure points or a perfect fit so I don't go numb. Do boots like this actually exist? I've been reading up on the solomon synapse and they seem nice but maybe a little to soft, also looked at the malamutes that seem stiffer
So I'll stop blabbering,
Thanks for the help guys
Ps. Anyone know a good shop around Calgary for Solomon?
My friend just bought the K2 Thraxis and I just bought the K2 UFO at Mission in Kensington. Put them on for over a half hour and then decided to buy them and get them heat molded. Althougth I have not ridden them yet....they are just super comfortable. I think you Ski Cellar may sell Solomon. They sell K2's but didn't have the UFO's and ran out of Thraxis.
