Patrick C.wrote a review of Salomon Snowboards Malamute Snowboard Boot - Men's on February 4, 2013
Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
This boot is stiff but comfortable. No heel lift.
Fits true to size and in comfortable enough to wear all day. Mine are now about 3 years old(70 days) and no signs of wearing out. There are some issues with keeping laces tight but I think that is more me than the boot. For big mountain all mountain or powder they are great. Most comfortable boot I have ever had.
