Vans are far from wider. They were my go to time and again for narrow boots. BFB, Cirro, and the Andreas. Like I said above, good for narrow ankles.

If you say so. I've had a new pair of boots every season for the past 6 years. Every pre-season I go to 3-4 local shops and try on everything in the medium and stiff categories. Brand new models/brands, old models (just in case anything changed) and in +/- 1/2 sizes. I'm referring to width of the toebox though, not the heel.

No, Vans are only "average" width in the heel (not wide... but not really narrow either). I also try a lot of boots/brands each year. A couple of shops guys keep recommending Vans to me as being narrow... but I never found the Vans to be that good. Either none of them actually have narrow feet, or they just aren't aware of Nitro boots (or both).

Anyone know if Salomon F3.0 or F2.0 are made for narrow feet? People here are recommending Salomons so I'm thinking of going to them next..

I'm coming from a Nike ZF1 that I've used for 2 seasons and I'm starting to make deeper toe turns that are starting to lift my heels pretty badly. Problem for me is one foot is a half size bigger than the other, so whatever boot I get one foot will not fit for sure.

So 2014, been waiting a YEAR to try the new Supreme (now called Moxie)
Salomon seriously need to fix their sizing, not only can you not go by the sizes, the cm seem to be out of whack.
I am a 37eu 6US in regular shoes 22.9cm I was in a size FOUR boot and only just touching the ends. JUST.

I need a 3 which would be perfect but they dont make a 3 because its a ridiculously small number and would probably confuse customers further.
Aside from that the heel lock is great and people who have larger feet rejoice.
As for me, Ill be stuck in my boots that aren't quite right after trying many brands and doctoring what I have


Booooo so dissappointed on what should have been a perfect union
-girl with small narrow feet and not much in the way of an Achilles....

I ride: NS Pandora 149 + Salomon Absolute premium Bindings
Stepchild PMS 149/ Smokin Fawesym 149 + Nitro Eris Bindings +15 -12

K2 Contour 5.

I am writing this post because I have impossibly narrow 11.5 feet. I hope this post helps someone else in a similar situation.

I just purchased Salomon Malamute 2016 boots. I took them to Steamboat, CO and boarded 5 out of 6 days. These boots are awesome for someone with narrow feet!! There are three ways to tighten the boot.
1. Tighten the inside booty
2. Heal lock strap over the booty
3. Tighten the outside boot.

After you play with the system a little bit, you can get the boots fantastically tight. It's like having cushioned vice grips around your feet!!!

The responsiveness is spectacular and the boots are well worth the expensive price tag.

I hope this helps someone else!!
