Great fitting boot with no break in needed
Salomon boots & shoes, whether they are Alpine, Nordic or trail running have always fit my foot very well. These boots are no exception. The lacing system is slick and very fast to adjust. I find once I put half a kilometer in that I need to tighten them a little more and then they are good for the rest of the day. It would be nice if they had a pocket for the zipper on the lace cover. Either that or have it go completely under the ankle support, but I nit pick. The flex of the boot is just right to give you control but not be fatiguing on longer trips. Used them last week when the high was 14 F with only a thin pair of icebreaker socks and they kept my toes toasty.
