Synapse Focus Boa Snowboard Boot
Aggressive heel hold and lightning-quick response comes to you in the Salomon Synapse Focus Boa Snowboard Boot. Its stiff flex adds the support and response needed to precisely pick apart big-mountain lines and serious backcountry terrain with confidence and comfort. The Boa Focus closure system employs two dials that allow you to independently adjust the upper and lower zones of the boot to find the perfect fit every time. It also makes it easy to fine-tune your adjustments at the summit so you don't have to fiddle with laces in a snowstorm at 10,000 feet.
The boot's Platinum 4D Exhale liner sports Full Custom Fit heat-moldable foam for a foot-conforming fit and a locking internal harness for dialed-in heel hold. The liner's also perforated to help dump extra humidity from your boots on sweat-laden uphill tours, while mesh channels simultaneously cut back on sweat build-up and enhance temperature regulation. Salomon's Trek EC+ sole uses unrelenting traction lugs for sure-footed confidence when you're hiking along exposed ridgelines or icy terrain. Plus, the OrthoLite C3 footbed brings increased circulation for added comfort when you're riding and hiking all day.

- Q & A
quick and easy. stays tight all day!
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
After 13 years, I decided it was time to get some new boots and wow. I got these because I am a big fan of the boa systems I have on other items and this is no different. With the double boa, you can control the upper and the lower portions of the boot separately. I have used these a few times in different conditions, hardpack, zero degrees, blower pow and they have been amazing. My feet have stayed dry and warm all day. I wear a 7.5 in all Salomon shoes so I went with a 7.5 without trying these on and the fit is PERFECT. The 7.5 would probably be best with a small binding from most brands.
Stiff and supportive; so comfortable
- Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
I downsized a half size from my previous pair of boots and these are very stiff and supportive. The liner inside is also a little more supportive than other Salomon snowboard boots. They are also quite warm! The rubber toe cap seems very durable; that is the area my boots usually blow out at and these don't look like they will fail for a while. The heel lift is non existent in these boots for me and it does not even have the st8 jacket system included in some of the other Salomon boots.
