So Comfy + Stylish!
- Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
I am a huge fan of Salomon boots - I had a pair of Women's Ivy boots for almost 8 years, and the heel finally started to come loose from taking my foot out of the binding at every chair lift. I tried on Burtons, Thirty-Two's, DC, and K2, but all felt so stiff and not comfortable (which I realized could be a factor of being new). Still, I decided to stick with Salomons and first ordered Ivy's with speed laces from Amazon, but didn't love them, so returned them. I then tried these Kianas with the Boa system and immediately fell in love. The lining is so soft and cushy, the Boa system is super easy, and after wearing them for just an hour on my last trip, they felt like my old boots. They are the perfect level stiffness, yet comfortable and flexible. I can't say enough about these. And thanks to Backcountry for having amazing customer service. Note: I always order a 1/2 size up from my normal shoe size (normally wear 7.5 / ordered 8, which felt slightly tight at first, but this is how it should be; felt perfect after an hour!)
