For the price range I think these boots may be top of the class, so to speak!
Salomon makes some of the best snowboard boots out there, period. However, with their regular old fast lace solution... there is something still to consider, since the laces can slip and/or come loose from the locking device. Also, it takes a while to lace em up and separation of upper and lower does not really work at all... when you pull everything will tighten. The rest is peachy... I like the toe box very much (never ever had frozen toes in these boots), the comfort is excellent, heel hold works fine but could and should be a bit better, true to shoe size, holds up well from wear and tear, no pressure points (and here you should trust my judgement, I have very delicate feet), not heavy. They do not flex enough, nor in a matter I like... but could be extremely good boots for the first-time-buyer. I would recommend them, but everyone need to realize it is actually not possible to review boots... really... since peoples feet are so very different.
