The Salomon Triumph is like a more mellow version of the Pledge with less ankle articulation. It’s sole is very skate/freestyle focused sole and the all around fit is pretty good. The new upper lower lacing system is a nice change from the old speed lacing system. Salomon Boots run very large and bulky so if you are looking for a boot with a reduced footprint then you don’t want to go with this. Salomon makes solid reliable boots though so if you are ok with a bulky outer boot then you might like this mid flexing skate inspired boot.
