I see, i thought you ment the boots were only one year old as in last years boot.

I just traded my Salomon Dialogues for some F2.0's. Now the Dialogues were too big for me (hence I returned them), but the difference in boot size is crazy. The dialogues barely fit in my large size bindings and I had at least an inch of overhang on both sides of my board. With the F2.0 I have less than a 1/2 inch of overhang and my straps are damn near bottomed out on my large Formulas (size 9.0 F2.0's).

They make my feet look small. It's kinda weird. One thing to note, doesn't seem like they will pack-out much. At least not like the dialogues did.
same thing here: I had last years dialogues and they were tough to get in my med bindings and were maxing out my straps (getting the ratchets to even engage was taking twice the time and literally wearing me out). Dialogues size have really gotten huge lately...the ones from a couple years back fit in medium bindings fine.

Unfortunately, I'm getting the dreaded Achilles tendon chafe from the 2012 F2.0. Some say it's a seam flaw in the fused "liner" design and/or the lack of a standard liner. Others say the boot is relatively stiff and needs to break in some flex.

I've only worn them 10 days. I tried "moleskin" padded tape on my Achilles, but that didn't help. Since the inside of the boot isn't that soft, I still want to try some mid-weight socks (I was wearing lightweight socks).

I also should try 3rd party insoles. The factory "mystic" insoles are relatively nice, but aren't particularly high heeled and might be placing my tendon in the worst spot.

I really want to keep this boot. I love the way the F2.0 fit and the reduced weight. Standard liner "clod-hoppers" don't even seem like an option any more...I'm hooked.
