Default Salomon F3.0 Boots

So I was able to try on some boots today and noticed that Salomon boots seemed to fit my feet good and give me great heelhold. The store didn't have much to choose from and so I'm thinking about giving these a try. Here's some links: Salomon F3.0 Boot Review | The Good RideThe Good Ride Salomon Snowboards F3.0 Snowboard Boot - Men's | Backcountry.com



So what do you guys think about the design. If I understand correctly they don't have the traditional tongue, and instead have the three straps. Please let me know what you think. I would love to try these on in person but I need a new pair quick and the closest store is 1.5 hrs. away.

As long as the boot fits your foot I don't doubt the strap system. I had F20's (previous gen F boots) and never had the laces slip. The lace locking system is solid. I would worry a little bit about trying on salomons in the store then ordering a fusion type boot online. Since the F boots don't have a separate liner they fit differently. There is less fudge room with sizing with these then traditional boots with removable liners.

Do you know if run any smaller or bigger in size? I tried on the Salomon faction boots if that helps.

In my experience all the Salomon stuff I have ever had runs true to mondo sizing when it comes to length. Measure your foot in cm and that is the right size. The problem comes when it comes to width and foot volume. The fact that the F boots don't have a removable liner means a lot of the little thing you can do to improve fit are taken away.

Do yourself (and your feet) a favor and make the drive.

Won't put anything on my feet when snowboarding besides Salomons, my F22's are near death(after 250+ days) and it's sad. :-(

Thanks for the advice. I just checked on backcountry and they say it has a removable liner.?

Actually, I just checked their website and I've already been to two of the three dealers in my state(all dick's sporting goods) and one store had a few salomon boots and the other didn't even have snowboarding equipment
