It's one of the best boots ever made, period. I owned a pair for a couple seasons, although not at the moment, and I have several friends running running various years of the F20, F22, and F24's also. Hell, I bought my gf a pair of F20's just a couple weeks ago too.

Awesome boots. Good lacing system that lasts. I've had them for 2.5 seasons and LOVE em! I have worn them from first lift till after the bars close and they still go strong the next day. Get em!

All I heard over and over was that Salomon, Salomon, Salomon boots are best. I tried on Dialogues, Synapses, and F22s. I have 3 days on my F22s, they are amazing. Once I figured out how to lock down the lower zone, the only problem I've had is making them TOO tight. They are on the stiffer side, which I love, no heel lift, super light, and plenty warm although I wore them on spring days and my feet weren't overheating. I can't say enough good things. Not exactly a quick lace system but I find them so comfy I have no need to loosen throughout the day. You should at least give them a try. Everyone says they run narrow, but I have wider feet (I wear wide NB running shoes) and they fit me great. They're narrow in the heel, which is probably what you want. You should at least try them on.

I'll try and explain, once you try a pair on you'll see what I mean. There are hooks on the top of the boot that you loop through and tighten one level at a time. Self-explanatory. However, the bottom is pre-laced and you have to tighten all at once. They are then looped through a pair of hooks permanently; you'll need to spend a minute making sure the lower zone is the preferred tightness before locking the first set of hooks in and moving up the boot. If I didn't do this I couldn't eliminate heel lift. This is probably no different than any other boot but they're the first of any brand I've owned, just used traditional lace rentals before.

Salomons, especially in the F series of boot, are know to be tighter in the toe box than regular boots. Make sure you test fit these before buying given that you have a wider foot.

Oh, and I ride F20s and love them

That's sort of why I said what I did; I ordered my F22s online, then read about the supposed narrowness... and was resigned to returning them. However, they fit perfectly on my wide foot, and I've ridden them 3 days with absolutely no pain or foot fatigue. So at least try them.
