New boots have arrived

So I walked around the house with the DC's this morning. I am liking the double BOA, quick and easy adjustment. Sizing seems to good provided I where some thin Smart Wools in them. I may still order in the Salomons to compare but these are really nice 2012's. The funky color scheme is even growing on me.

I have decided to send these back as they are a touch too small. Put on my thinnest Smart Wools but still just a little too tight. Time to call the local shop to see what selection of boots they have.

Mine were toe crunching tight, and I was about to send tem back also. Try this... Put them on and warm them up by walking or 20 min or so. Go stand in front of a solid stud in your house, or a car tire, and kick it a few times. Sounds odd but it worked for me perfectly. Packs the boot out just enough.

I have 5 days on the hills so far with them and no issues.

ok, I will try that as my old boots just sold on Ebay yesterday. Burtons with their speed laces hanging all over the place each time you loosen them or tighten them for that matter.

Any and all info in appreciated!!!
I tried the DC's and the Salomon (along with Burton's, Vans, Nikes and I few others) and ultimately went with the DC's. I found the DC's to be a bit wider than the Salomons in the sizes I tried and I have a somewhat narrow foot. I just liked how the DC's felt and the ability to dial-in the boots with the double boa both while on the mountain and during lunch. They did loosen up a bit after breaking in but the boa allows me to tighten them up. I am an older rider and did not notice much difference in cushioning but I do use an insole I purchased at REI. One thing I will say is that, unlike lacing systems, you may never find the same "spot" twice with the boas but I tend to make small adjustments during the first run of the day and they are great. I have owned Salomon Dialogues and Burton Ions in the past and really liked those as well but wanted to try the boa system and am very happy with it. Good luck!
