Salomon X Pro 90 W
I really didn't want to have to make this purchase as I have had my old ski boots for 20years, using them at least annually in that time and loving them a lot! I did however get persuaded by the Ski Set guys that my much loved boots were about to die with potentially cold and uncomfortable consequences for me. I therefore deliberated for a long time one afternoon in Snow & Rock, Chertsey with the most patient, helpful and knowledgeable assistant over my new boots. I can report that they are BRILLIANT. I have tested them appropriately in Chamonix in fantastic off piste as well as on. All promises about fit and comfort were true and they felt like my new best friends by the end of the week! Thank you S&R for your help and advice the product was fab! The Salomon moulded fit really worked and helped to ensure the same level of comfort and movement as my old boots - I could even walk reasonable distances - v relevant in Chamonix!

Like skiing in slippers
I enjoyed my best week skiing with these boots. They delivered on both comfort and performance. Fab service from snow & rock and can't wait to ski again!

Good boot but a bit soft on steep or deep
A very good boot and comfortable from the first ski...the fitting service was great. If you like to ski aggressively it is a bit soft on steep or in heavy powder but a great all round boot.

A great purchase
Bought my boots and had then custom fitted. was slightly nervous as I was going skiing a couple of days later and hoped they were comfortable. No need to worry they fitted perfectly. No rubbing or chaffing. They were comfortable and were everything you would expect from a ski boot. I would wholeheartedly recommend them.

Not so good for slim ankle and high bridge
Felt uber comfortable in the shop with plenty of room for my toes :) I'm 5'9" with size 7 1/2 feet, slim ankles and calves. I'm quite an enthusiastic skier, comfortable on bumps and improving on powder and enjoy the adventure of off- piste. I found when skiing hard I needed to tighten up the ankle clips on these boots to maintain good heel hold (I also needed additional padding in the boot to increase heel hold) which unfortunately had the effect of ramping up the pressure on the top of my foot, even without doing up the fore-foot clips. Subsequently, after a week skiing, I've returned home with numbness across the bridge of my feet. I can see these boots being marvellous for those with normal to bigger ankles and calves as the custom shell is fab, but I'm afraid I'm not convinced they're the right choice for high bridge/arch and small ankle combo.

All day comfort!
Very good boots - extremely comfy, excellent flex and performance! Good fit for wide feet!
A little bit on the expensive side but as snow + rock match the price of other competitors, the only way I could afford them. Definetaly worth the purchase. :)

Comfy comfy comfy!
I bought these as I always had really bad trouble getting a well fitting boot that was comfortable to ski in all day! I have small feet and am automatically given a kids size boot aposded to a women's boot.
I have literally just landed back in the UK after a weeks skiing in Les Arc and I had no problems with my boots at all. They are amazingly comfortable, great fitting.
A must buy!!

comfortable and yet responsive
even from day one these boots were like slippers. they were obviously well suited/ selected for my style of skiing by the snow and rock staff. first weeks use was brilliant and i now can't wait to get back on them again.
