husband looking for new salomon boots...
my husband has had a pair of salomon boots for longer than we've been together and last year they shit the bed. he really likes them and is looking for something comparable. i believe they are salomon autofit but don't quote me on it. anyway, this is what they look like, except his are mens boots (the ones pictured are womens) and his are yellow and navy blue.

has anyone seen these boots, and if so can you recommend a pair that are similar in function and fit? :dunno:

I think most current Salomon boots are pretty consistent in their sizing, but if your husband's boots are many years old, there's no telling how things may have changed. He'll need to try on a new pair.

As to "function," all of Salomon's better boots now use speed-lacing (except a couple with the BOA system); he probably wouldn't want to use the remaining low-end models with regular laces. For a medium-stiff, very good all-around boot, try the Dialogue or the F20. For something stiffer, try the F22. For really stiff, try the Malamute.

Go to store. Try on as many boots as possible. Buy the ones that fit the best. Done.

I've only tried on Salomon, but until they give me a reason to I won't bother with anyone else. Great fit for me, and high quality workmanship. Shouldn't pack out near as bad as other brands and last you a few seasons. The Fusion boots (F20 for park, F22 for freeride) are one piece and smaller footprint, which I really like too. So since he likes his Salomons try this years lineup and see if the fit is good.

My budder has the dialogues and absolutely loves them, and I have the Malumutes and really enjoy them.
What kind of riding does your husband do?

mostly freeride but dabbles in the park from time to time

for boots just go into a shop have them pull every brand in every stiffness level and try them on, it will take forever, but its hard to say what will compare especially if he has had them for so long, he has worn them in, and they are a part of him. (i know what its like to have to move on from a good boot) nothing will fit the same. he'll just need to take his time and try on everything he can get his hands on.
