He should be in better than 140$ boots it sounds like too. Guy today said that good inserts make 140$ boots feel like 300$ boots. Def sparked my interest. Ima ride them and see if I need some.

The Moto and Freestyle are Burton's entry level Boots. I recently picked up a pair of Salomon Dialogue Selects and I love them. They are so comfortable. Highly recommended. Also you may want to look into RedHot Superfeet. Take out the insole and replace them with the RedHots.

sounds more like a heel lift issue resulting from poor fitting boots. Inserts may help but the problem may just stem from him having to overwork his feet due to the heel lift

My wife has Salomon Vigil boots. She's had nothing but problems with fitment. They fit great in the store and walking about, but on the slopes she has mega heel lift. I don't like their quick lacing system either, because it's one lace and it tends to tighten the top of the boot before the forefoot section. Ski shop put heel clasp things (kind of like J-bars) onto the liners and that helped a bit, but she still has heel lift.

That being said, that's just personal experience. As far as comfort and quality, Salomons seem to make quality gear. Get whatever fits your feet the best. Use the boot fitting guide here on the site. I tried on nearly every manufacturers boots (32, Burton, Vans, Salomon, Ride, etc, no one carries Forum locally) and Ride were by far the best fitting boots for me. It all depends on your feet.

1 vote for Salomon Dialogue. I got a pair from last year and I love them. So comfy on my feets!

They make like 8 diff women's boots, so sounds like she made a pretty common mistake and bought the wrong ones for her. My gf has the same boots, this year's model. Fit is great although I agree that they aren't the best boots. Then again, they're one of their lower end models.

Having owned 2 pairs of F-boots, I'd say def Salomon. They make awesome boots.

It's all about fit. If the whole inside came out that had to be either WAY to big or just to loosely tied.

I agree if the liner is able to slip out they are obviously way too big. Or he forgot to tie them.

Thats ridiculous.

Salomon. i personally think that they are one of the best boots on the market. I rock an F20 size 11 which is perfect for when i hit up both the park and the slope. it also shrinks boots size therefore no wide boards for me.

Then again. you should really try them on for the feel. What fits for me might not fit for you.
