Salomon Ivy BOA 2016 - 2013 Review by The Good Ride
The Salomon Ivy Boot has split into a BOA and a regular lace model. You pay a lot more for easy on and off but loose upper/lower adjustability in the process. We understand the ease of use BOA but with the addition of their new speed lace tech, it doesn’t seem like it’s worth it to buy the BOA. We say find and buy the Speed Lace unless you have to really crank down the BOA to hold your ankle in. The rest of the boot’s performance is just like the Ivy lace.

My Dog Ate My Boots. Thank God.
I hate these boots. They have some strange pressure points that hurt my feet when I crank down the BOA for heel support. At first I thought they just needed to be broken in, but after over a year (40 plus days) they have improved in comfort only very slightly.
The BOA dial tends to pop out at random times, which negates the purpose if you buy BOA ease of use.
Yesterday my German shepherd puppy destroyed the dial on my left boot. I was furious at first, but now I'm glad. Now I have an excuse to get new ones. This time I will follow Good Ride's advice and check out one of their suggestions, maybe the Burton Emerald. It's in the same price range and received a much better review. Thanks Good Ride! I wish I had known about you before I bought these overpriced pieces of schlock.
