Salomon F22 worth the price?

Hey, everone new user her and I'd like to get some recommendation from people with experience with these boots.

I've researched around and personally tried on the F22's and they feel great in store. My question is are they worth the price of 340? (which is what I have found them for).

I believe they suit my style of riding, and they feel so much better than my old cheap boots.

Thanks

I have 2 pairs of F22s. Hell no they're not worth $340! Find out what size you need and then buy online. I think I paid $120 for my 2cd pair from REI Outlet.

If they are comfy. yes.

I can't put a price on the comfort of my feet.

If your feet hurt, it is hard to have a good day.

Back country has the 2011 F22's for $280 which is full MSPR. Where are you going that they are charging over MSRP?

Yes, unfortunately I live in Canada.

So I've seen ones for $270 online but $80 shipping + conversion rate. It also does not help that I'm pretty small (25.5cm feet) which is tough to find online.

Also the boots here are $400 in store, yet they're on sale down to 340 and I can get them for $300 now =(.

By the way, I agree that you can not put a price on the comfort of your feet, I'll probably be getting them anyways.

Absolutely worth the price, if they fit you well. Consistently one of the very best boots on the market, every season, in its category.

I agree...The Salomon liners are awesome and once they fit you right, they are so worth the money. Boots are something not to skimp on. Also, I replaced the insole with some custom footbeds to tweak the fit even more...Three thumbs up!
