Laura P.wrote a review of Salomon X3 Lab Soft Ski Boot - Men's on February 18, 2010
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)
