S/Lab MTN Ski Boot
Salomon's S/Lab MTN Ski Boot is lightweight option for aggressive skiers who are looking to crush the climbs and ski steep, technical lines. With a stiff 120 flex to drive big planks down powder-filled bowls and tight chutes, and narrow, performance-first last, this boot can certainly charge, but its low weight and impressive 47-degree range of motion in walk mode means you'll be setting the skinner after every storm, and heading back up for more after every descent.
A Grilamid shell maintains the boot's stiffness without weighing you down, and a carbon spine and Pebax cuff provide rebound, stability, and impressive power transfer for a boot that's so light on the uphill. Salomon's signature Custom Shell HD and foam liner are both easy to thermo-mold for a precise, custom fit that's comfortable on all-days tours and keeps your foot secure for control on the descents. A rubber, rockered sole ensures a natural stride and reliable grip on those inevitable, icy bootpacks up steep ridges to access that line you've had your eye on all season long.

- Q & A
Best touring boots yet
These are easily the best touring boots Iâve owned. I previously had the zero g guide boots and use dobermans for inbounds use. These come very close to race boot performance but with all day hike ability. It does have a narrow last but I didnât mold the liner and have been quite comfortable since day one.
Walk Uphill with Ease
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
Comfortable, lightweight, with a solid range of motion for walking uphill. Realizing this is a full-on touring boot, I realize its' 120 flex will not be nearly as stiff as a traditional 120 flex, but I was hoping for a slightly stiffer shell. The boot itself is also a bit short in stature, but it has skied well in-bounds and out. The ability to cook the shell and the liner creates an impeccable fit. This boot does feature a narrow last, though it will expand when heated up. However, if you have a wider foot, this is probably not the boot for you.
Size 9 US shoe size... what size? Do I go with 26.5 or 27.5? Do I have to cook them?
Darrell, according to the size chart, I recommend going with the 26.5 as that equates to a size 9 in U.S. men's (for Salomon that is). Whether or not you have to "cook" them depends on how the boot fits right out of the box. If it fits and skis well, then there's no need to have them heat-molded.
Good morning, I’m just curious if this boot is compatible with the dynafit beast 16. Thanks so much!
Yes, these boots are compatible with the Dynafit beast 16 bindings.
