5 5

By far the best skiing boot I've ever had - they fit perfect, have incredible lateral response, can feel the entire edge of the ski and go into precise carved turns without even thinking about it. And the 130 flex is perfect - not too stiff, not too soft.
Returned these boots earlier because they were so hard to put on, but re-ordered and tried a heated boot bag which makes all the difference. Still a bit challenging getting the boots off, the liner wants to come out with the foot at least half way. Worth the inconvenience because they ski so well. Caution: the bottom of the boot is really slick - you'll need to use cat tracks to walk on snow and ice.
My very narrow heel and low volume foot stays put in these boots. Tried a Lange World Cup 150 with the 92 mm last and the heel is still sloppy, and too wide in the arch.
For me, the Salomon is a much better boot with far better performance. Lovin' them! (and I'm not a racer, I'm a lady that's been skiing for 40 years but can still rip and get out there 100 days a season)

Tried the Salomon X3 Lab Soft boot in a 25.5 and they fit perfect: 130 flex, 95mm last. Only problem is they were way too hard to get on - the shell overlap is extremely thick and stiff, felt like the lower 2 buckles were closed when putting them on. Had to return them, can't handle the pain of putting them on and off.
My question: would the Full Tilt First Chair boots be narrow enough? Seems like the only boots narrow enough are World-Cup race boots, I currently have Lange World Cup 150 boots but looking for something a little softer, with a thicker liner and easier to get on and off. I'm 5' 10", 165, female, narrow feet, tired of slicing up my fingers getting stiff race boots on and off!
