Recommended that my customer give these a shot, he gave me permission to share his comments: I took the Salomons out for a big day yesterday, and they worked great. Did the bear claw chutes on Parry Peak which was about 4k' of vert and included 3 hours boot packing, ridgeline scrambling, and a dicey descent into the chutes. Attached are few shots to give you an idea of the terrain. Had no break in period with them other than just trying them on in my living room, and the only minor hot spot I ended up with was at the very top, on the inside of my calf. I also didn't wear tall sock though since it was a warm day. The hike mode was awesome, the grip was great during the bootpacking, and the transition to ride mode was super easy. Overall I'm really excited about them.

Perfect Splitboard Boots
This boot is perfect for splitboarding. It rides better than most high-end snowboard boots I've tried and has a functional walk mode. I've ridden 15 or so days on these this season in the Wasatch and have had no durability issues. They're not ultralight but are definitely not heavier than a normal snowboard boot. They feel much more like a traditional snowboard boot than other mountaineering/splitboard boot hybrids out there. I would call them mid-stiff. Supportive but playful for powder surfing. The boot's walk mode uses a BOA system. This is great and allows you to modulate the stiffness of the boot depending on the terrain your riding or the board/binding setup your using. The walk mode is hard to quantify, but allow you to take full advantage of the highback angle while in uphill mode. So until bindings improve range of motion, there is no point in seeking a greater range of motion for boots. I find these to be much more efficient to skin and walk in than a normal snowboard boot, or even something that claims to be splitboard specific like the burton tourist. I have a narrowish foot and the boot fits great, but I also think someone with a mid-width foot would like these. There is an excellent ankle-locking system making them pretty versatile. For reference, I'm 6'0 165lbs riding a Jones Hovercraft with Karakorum bindings. These are sweet boots! couldn't be happier with them.
