Salomon Dialogue 2016 - 2010 Review by The Good Ride
The Salomon Dialogue has been around for a while and that is why many people swear by this mid flexing boot. It lasts a long time and works well anywhere in the mountain or park. It’s just really big on the outside and is one of the longest footprints I have come across. This bulk can be a bit of a turnoff. It’s slow to lace up but the adjustability and performance are good.. The Dialogue has a pretty low profile and the sole cushioning is more on the skate shoe side. That means you have more feel with the board and less sole cushioning. Not much has changed from 2013-2014
Ethics Statement: We don’t get paid by the manufacturer to write these reviews. No one is perfect and we do make money from the “Where To Buy” links below, but this is our best attempt at an honest and objective review from an average riders’ perspective.
For 2012, Salomon did a little more work on the improvements from 2011 and made the articulation throughout the boot a little more flex-friendly. They call it re-flex tech, but whatever you want to call it, we like it. It helps the boot last longer than the average boot without articulation points throughout the boot. The 2012 Dialogue is the call, but the 2011 isn’t bad either.
For 2011, the dialogue added a bit more articulation at the ankle that you could call an articulating cuff. Salomon just makes great long lasting boots, and although this might not be for everyone, the Dialogue could work very well for the right rider. If you have large calves or wide feet Salomon might not be the best choice.

Started falling apart after 3rd day
I initially loved the fit and feel of these boots. The right stiffness for me and felt very responsive. I did downsize from a 10.5 (normal shoe size) to a 10 as it ran a little large. I would have been happy and kept these boots if it weren't for the quality.
After only my 3rd day on the mountain, the stitching that held the BOA lace in riped out. After noticing this I check over the rest of boot and noticed 2-3 other spots the stitching was fraying. Due to this I returned them.
