Vail Szendreiwrote a review of Salomon MTN Lab Ski Boot on October 14, 2015
Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
This initial review is just about the fit, in case some are wondering. Its really hard to get an idea of how a boot will fit your foot without trying them on first, and I always recommend that, but sometimes its just not possible.
The MTN Lab fits almost exactly like other Salomon, 98mm last boots. Specifically the Salomon Ghost, but also very similar to the X max series. If those boots work well for your foot shape, in theory these should work. "SHOULD" the being key word, it may not be a perfect scenario like it was for me. I have skied in ghosts for years, and also skied my fathers x max from time to time, and I think the fit is very similar between those two and the MTN Lab.
Higher instep volume than you'll find on some other narrow boots, but with a tighter toebox. Also similar to Lange LV 97mm, Rossignol 130 LV or K2 Pinnacle LV.. but not as much of an apples to apples comparison as the MTN Lab and Ghost or X Max.
I will update with a full review after I ski them.
