Hi Fi Snowboard Boot - Wide

Bode Merrill is known for pushing the limits of snowboarding anywhere he goes from huge jumps in the backcountry to finding rails in the streets, and the Hi Fi boots are what helps him get there. Featuring a happy medium flex for all mountain performance and premium materials to offer unmatched comfort, you can stay on the mountain all day to progress to Bode's standards. Zonelock lacing independently tightens upper and lower zones to offer a secure fit, while the Springback improves binding response for a rapid response. Salomon's premium ShadowFlex liner is heat-moldable to offer a custom fit, and the Ortholite C3 footbed and HighFive EC+ sole provide you with enough shock absorption to make any landing feel like a walk in the park.

Big pros, Big Cons.

Familiarity:
I've used it several times

I have about a dozen days on this boot as an all mountain freestyle rider, and have strong feelings in both directions, so I'm giving it an average review. Just know that there is a lot to love and a lot to hate. These are very comfortable boots. My feet are between E and EE width and the wide fits them well. If you are past EE, these are probably not wide enough. Pros- 1) Comfy 2) the plastic heel spine means awesome flex retention and durability 3) great toe caps 4) upper/lower split on quick lace and locking works well 5) looks great 6) has a real sole and not 100% EVA foam that gets ripped apart 7) low volume outer - size 10/43/28 mondo easily fits a medium binding 8) feet stay dry! Overall, simply the best designed, best looking all mountain freestyle outer I've ever seen! Cons- 1) midsole is kind of stiff, not as cush as burton or adidas soles. Definitely want a cushier binding base with some cant for these. 2) heel hold is POOR. Maybe ok if you have monster ankles 3) not quite warm enough 4) terrible grip on icy surfaces 5) Weirdly high volume interior considering low volume exterior, which is a side effect of the huge negative: 6) flimsy, thin liners without nearly enough foam, structure, etc. Overall, perhaps the worst snowboard boot liners I've encountered in 20 years of riding. After a pro shop heat molding, I've already added custom insoles and butterfly foam and need to get a footbed shim and even more foam for one foot. For a premium boot, this liner should really be a deal breaker and salomon should be embarrassed pairing the exquisite outer with the steaming pile liner. From the low calf down to the toes, the foam should be 3x thicker and there needs to be at least 1-2 considerations for heel hold- foam j bars in the liner, or at least velcro for adding after market foam. Adding some sort of cross ankle strap internally, like in the lo-fi or the velcro strap in the malamute is also really needed here. For 2020 it looks like the malamute is salmons best boot, despite still needing some heel and toe protection on the outer. The Lo-Fi looks to beat out the hi-fi, despite being a classic lace and missing the toe cap, just for having the heel locking boa. My understanding is that both are wider than the regular width hi-fi as well.
